Webinar Production

Webinars are a great way to connect presenters and audiences together online in virtual events.  SLV has produced webinars for federal & provincial government clients, non-profits, industry associations, corporations, and law firms.

The main advantage of webinar technology over a live stream webcast, is that everything happens in real-time and there is no broadcast delay.  This means you can have real conversations with remote presenters and attendees alike.

While it is possible to conduct a webinar with a single presenter in front of their laptop, SLV can help take your webinars to the next level with multiple presenters, pre-recorded video, and computer presentations.

Webinar Production with SLV

SLV specializes in professional video production and when we produce webinars and virtual events, we work hard to get the best looking and sounding audio and video, even if our presenters are working remotely using a webcam.  We also take a lot of the complexity away from the presenter so they are free to speak to their content while an assistant monitors the chat or Q&A, and we can take care of switching the slides, video camera, and pre-recorded video content.

Webinar platforms

SLV produces webcasts and virtual events on three of the most popular streaming platforms:

BigMarker, BlueJeans, and Zoom.

Each webinar platform has its pros and cons, but in general we can help you decide which is best for your individual needs and budget.

Webinar Features

The advantage of webinar services is that viewers can participate from desktops, laptops, tablets, and cell phones.  All of the webinar services that we use are designed for use on a wide range of viewing devices and have long ago abandoned the old Flash technology in favour of new HTML5 technology.  This means are more reliable and stable connections and none of the old security vulnerabilities and limitations that the old legacy systems were limited by.

As your webinar producer, SLV starts with professional high definition video sources and we can switch the view to show a computer presentation.  We can also create a picture by picture view that shows the video and presentation side-by-side, play pre-recorded video, and even patch-in remote presenters.

Technical Webinar Details

Live stream webinar platforms can support HD resolutions but the bitrate is much lower than on live stream webcasts.  So instead of having multiple quality options for different viewers, all viewers receive the same high quality signal.  This still looks great and you can still read the content on the slides, but the video quality is a step below webcast technology.  Webinars are designed to be viewed on personal devices and not projected on large screens.

The technology used in webinars works in real-time so there is no buffer or delay and this is better for two-way interaction and group discussions.  Viewers benefit when their internet connections are stable but suffer from drop-outs if it isn’t.
