Religious gatherings, funerals and memorial services under COVID 19 restrictions have resulted in many challenges for family and friends unable to attend in person. A funeral livestream solution may be one of the only alternatives available.
Digital Mix was recently commissioned by a local funeral director to provide a reliable and cost effective funeral livestreaming solution. Under level 3 restrictions, only 10 family members could attend the service in person. This left many family and friends with only one alternative, to join the service online.
The major issue for the Digital Mix team was that the venue had no broadband connection. The solution for internet connectivity was to use the 4G mobile network. Digital Mix alongside Edwards Sound provided a totally independent audio visual system to livestream the service to family and friends around New Zealand.
The system included two high definition cameras, a 65 inch LCD screen, sound equipment and vision switching equipment. The 4G connection was excellent and allowed transfer speeds that did not compromise the quality of the stream. An audio visual technician and camera operator were on site and ensured everything went according to plan.
The high definition vision switching equipment allowed for a video tribute to be played both locally and on the video stream. As a backup to the video stream all video content from both cameras was recorded separately and an edited video of the service was provided to the family after some post production and editing.
The livestream was held via zoom and allowed for family members to watch the stream and interact with one another after the service.
Digital Mix can customize a solution to meet your requirements or incorporate existing on site equipment to make your next livestream event a success. Visit our livestreaming page for more information and other livestream options offered by Digital Mix.
