Virtual Live Stream Events

Overview

With the necessity to maintain social distancing during a period of COVID-19, the Lane University Center has established methodologies to permit historically large-scale programs to take place without an audience present through the optional use of live streaming events which occur in the Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall (ARMAH).  This plan allows for the continuation of major events while working towards ensuring the continued safety of the campus community by following social distancing. 

During these events, organizational members and performers will be permitted in the ARMAH if, and only if, social distancing during the performance or event must be maintained at all times.  Masks will always be required to be worn by all individuals, at all times, consistent with the Lane University Center's Phased Recovery and Reopening Plan.  

The Lane University Center services provide a stream to multiple platforms, high definition recordings, chat interactions, and the ability to change the way you engage your audience.

If you want to reach a digital audience, choose the Lane University Center to take care of your professional streaming needs!

Capabilities

  • High-quality streaming to broadcast your event in full HD, giving your viewers the best quality across all devices.
  • Simultaneous stream to Facebook, YouTube, Twitch, Periscope, LinkedIn, or a custom Real-Time Message Protocol.
  • Engagement tools such as live Q&A, polls, audience chat, email capture, or custom calls-to-action.
  • Full event recordings in an MP4 format once the event has concluded.
  • Two controllable, wall-mounted cameras for different viewing angles throughout the event.
  • Custom graphic overlays to be placed on the live stream.  

How it Works

  • Prior to your event, give your attendees the view link for the event. Once the stream is live, attendees will be able to view the event via the view link or any platform the stream is cast to.
  • If desired, the view window can include a Chat Window in which attendees may log in with their Facebook account or as a guest to chat and interact with other attendees.
  • That is it! The Lane University Center will take care of the rest!

Requirements

  • The streamed event must be held in the Alice R. Manicure Assembly Hall and include the LUC Large Event/Concert Sound System, which does incur a nominal cost for equipment and labor. There is no additional charge for the live stream of an event.
    • The average cost for a two (2) hour live stream event is approximately $350.  A formal estimate based on your exact event needs will be generated for your approval prior to your event.  
  • Additionally, one Technical Services Staff member must be scheduled to operate and monitor the live stream feed up to an hour before and after the event is scheduled along with the duration of the event.
  • The time that the stream should be active, and end must be submitted with the EMS request, along with an event timeline and any platforms/accounts you wish to cast to.
  • Any pertinent graphics, music, documents, slideshows, videos, or requested camera angles, must be submitted two weeks prior to the event.
