Funeral livestreaming and recording
Preparing to farewell a loved one is an emotional and stressful time. One of the many things to consider is how to include family and friends who are unable to attend the service in person.
With many immigrants living in New Zealand, it is not always possible for family and friends from far afield to attend a funeral or memorial service.
Funeral livestreaming might be a cost effective solution allowing family and friends to be a part of proceedings. Digital Mix can assist with multi-camera livestreaming of the service to our Vimeo Premium account.
Vimeo ensures privacy and the ability for viewers in different time zones to view at their convenience. All livestream recordings are archived for playback at a later date, and videos can be downloaded after the service. Online copies are retained for a period of one year after the service.
A typical livestream setup includes the following:
- 2 x HD cameras with tripods and associated equipment. One camera situated at the rear and one near the front of the venue. Additional cameras can be added if required (max. 4 in total)
- Vision switcher, monitor, laptops, and associated equipment.
- External microphones attached to the podium and for room audio.
- Temporary computer network, either connected to an existing venue network or standalone 4G mobile broadband system.
- Use of our Vimeo premium account, private or password protected link with download option.
- Cable covers and other safety equipment / cordons.
- Backup recording and edited video (provided post event)
Once a venue and time has been confirmed for your service, the staff at Digital Mix will co-ordinate all livestream technical details with the funeral director or venue.
4G Mobile Internet Connection for funeral livestreaming
Reliable, high quality livestreaming requires a high speed internet connection, preferably a direct connection to the local router via an ethernet cable.
In some cases this is not always possible. For venues with limited or no broadband connections we can provide a 4G mobile broadband system. Pictured below is our ultra high gain 4G antenna system, this ensures maximum signal strength in areas with poor 4G data coverage. For areas with good 4G coverage, Digital Mix also have a standard high gain antenna / router option.
Digital Mix can also livestream from areas with no broadband connections. We use a third party service provider for satellite data connection. Contact us for more information.
Edited Video Recording:
To compliment the livestream recording, a fully edited HD version of the service can be provided for archiving or distribution at a later date. This recording also serves as a backup in the event of a broadband connection outage.
In addition to their funeral recording service, Digital Mix are able to create slideshow presentations. We scan old photos and slides and prepare presentations highlighting special times with loved ones.
Digital Mix have various options and packages, please contact us at any time for more information.
Our staff are available at short notice and always willing to assist where possible.
