by Saad Bin Khalid Updated on January 16, 2024

Recent time has seen the most significant surge in the popularity of live streaming as a preferred mode to consume video content.

Despite the great demand by audiences for Video on Demand (VOD) platforms like YouTube and Netflix, what sets live streaming apart from pre-recorded videos is the immediacy of witnessing events unfold in real time.

Moreover, we will introduce you to VIDIZMO, which is an excellent platform for live streaming for all that is highly secure and comes with additional functionalities to cater to all live streaming challenges. 

Social Benefits of Live Video Streaming

Live streaming has opened the world for content creators and influencers who have boomed in the past few years. It allows them to broadcast events, performances, discussions, and much more in real time directly to their audience via the internet.

People watch live content more than Video on Demand (VOD) as it gains 27% more per view minutes per view than VOD.

Real-time communication and collaboration

We all have most probably imagined the thrill of video calling through WhatsApp and Skype with our loved ones that are distant from us, right? 

Live streaming provides the same benefit but at a macro level, allowing you to connect with people across distances instantly. It helps you to bridge the gaps and transcend all geographical boundaries helping you connect with people across the globe.

Live streaming has benefitted remote teams, geographically dispersed organizations, or global companies with multiple offices sharing ideas, solving problems, and accelerating projects.

So, you might be wondering why to opt for EVCM when we can conduct a live stream directly through Zoom.

Well, Zoom itself has some limitations regarding security and scalability.

Increased Audience Engagement and Interactions

Increased Audience Engagement and Interactions

Live streaming interactivity features such as live Q&A sessions, real-time polls, and chat features have changed the audience experience from passive to active viewers. It sparks the audience's interest, creating a more participatory environment that makes them feel more included.

It creates a notable feeling among their fans and wouldn't be possible without live streaming.

Environmental Benefits of Live Video Streaming

As we have observed, organizations focus on working for a sustainable environment through their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives. But the question is how successful and relevant in today's time with increasing populations at a rapid pace.  

Live video streaming is a solution that connects us and contributes to a greener planet. Let us explore some environmental benefits of live video streaming, which provides eco-friendly solutions.

Reducing Carbon Footprint

Aviation and air travel has caused great contributor to CO2 as we will now be looking at some of the facts that prove why there is a dire need to reduce carbon footprint.

According to Statista, Carbon emission from commercial aviation was 671 million metric tons in 2022.

In 2021 aviation accounted for over 2% of global energy-related CO2 emissions, having grown faster in recent decades than road, rail, or shipping.

Live streaming is a great way to counter that problem, as traditional meetings, conferences, and events that require participants to journey globally are now seamlessly replaced through virtual mode.

Whether it's a global conference, a product launch, or a company-wide meeting, live video streaming allows us to reach people worldwide while leaving no carbon imprint.

Imagine how immensely it will reduce global carbon emissions as millions, if not billion, are connected remotely.

But this requires Organizations to look for video content platforms that provide capabilities to cater to large audiences, robust security features and can smoothly stream at all bandwidth conditions without buffering. 

Resource Conservation

You might have heard economists and politicians talk about the preservation of natural resources due to the depletion of these resources much faster in recent years.

Live streaming contributes to making that goal possible by replacing the need for physical handouts, brochures, and printed materials. These can be made paperless by simply embedding these resources in our live stream through video interactivity features.  

By turning paperless and minimizing trash creation, sustainable practices can ease the pressure on our forests and eliminate the wasteful accumulation of flyers and event agendas, ensuring a more environmentally friendly conference experience.

Live video streaming transports us to a digital domain where information is available easily while leaving a minimal environmental footprint.
