A webcast is a live video stream of an event or conference. Webcasts are polished, high-quality videos that bring your event to life on the internet.
One of the biggest benefits of a webcast is that it allows you to extend the reach of your event to thousands of people from around the world, rather than being confined to your physical event space.
Wondering how webcasting works? Essentially, it’s broadcasting over the web. Webcasts can be streamed live or on-demand and require your audience to tune in, watch your webcast video stream, and engage by submitting questions and participating in polls.
If you’re wondering what the difference is between a webinar and webcast, you’re not alone. Although both webinars and webcasts are referred to as online events and help presenters connect with audiences, there are some key differences.
A webinar is a web-based seminar (web + seminar = webinar), which often takes the form of a presentation and utilizes PowerPoint slides, webcam, screenshare, video and audio. The defining feature of webinars is their interactivity and audience engagement, as they are all about two-way communication and allow for audience contribution via polls, Q&A and more.
Whereas, a webcast is a live video stream of an event or conference and is designed to reach large audiences of thousands. Think of webcast more like a television show than a seminar - as it has a TV/studio-like quality and allow you to bring a psychical event to life.
So, there you have it. When it comes to webinars vs. webcasts, webinars are online seminars that allow for a two-way flow of communication and webcasts are live video streams that provide one-way flow of information.
If you’re wondering how to do webcasting, you can rest assured that you can create a webcast video stream in 10 simple steps:
