Frequently Asked Questions
This FAQ offers explanations and tips to help you understand the services we provide.
What kind of videos do you produce?
We produce promotional, informational and marketing videos for companies and organizations. We film interviews, testimonials, conferences, trade shows, conventions, meetings and special events. With our in-house editing capabilities, we can edit footage into finished productions, complete with graphics, music and other effects.
What is a virtual event and can you produce one?
It is a program, meeting, workshop or other event, streamed live and viewed in real time by an online audience. The audio and video are encoded and streamed to the desired web platform where the viewer can watch. Virtual events include live streaming, webinars and webcasts, all of which which Orlando Corporate Media provides for clients.
Why should I live stream events?
Nearly every company, organization and brand wants to connect with employees, stakeholders, or customers, and livestreaming allows them to accomplish that in real time. Viewers are part of the event, even though they may be thousands of miles away.
Can you film our meeting or conference without it being live streamed?
Yes. We can film your event and provide you the raw footage after the event concludes. We also edit on-site or post event.
Do you work anywhere other than Orlando?
We work globally on our virtual events. We've produced events in over a dozen countries on four continents. For events that require on-site equipment and crews, we work anywhere in the United States, with a focus on productions in Orlando, Tampa, Daytona Beach and throughout Florida.
Why should I choose Orlando Corporate Media?
Our background is in network television and news production. We bring that experience and professionalism to all our projects, whether live or recorded. Our goal is to deliver superior customer and technical service on every production.
Is a webinar the same as a live stream? What is a webcast?
A webcast can be a live stream and a live stream can be a webinar! Technically, we look at events on three levels: live streams, webinars and webcasts. Live streams are often free events on platforms like YouTube, Twitch or Facebook. Webinars were held on Zoom, WebEx, GoToMeeting and others. Webcasts are the gold standard. High-end, private events that offer custom branding and a host of features, usually geared for Enterprise clients.
All these still exist, though the generic term live stream is often used to describe any live event, regardless of platform. When you work with Orlando Corporate Media, we'll work on your existing platform, or create a custom streaming event on the platform that best meets your requirements.
Can virtual events be pre-recorded?
Yes. Sometimes it's better to pre-record the presentation and stream it later. We call these events 'Simulated Live' or 'Look Live' since they appear to be live to the viewer.
Can you make a company video for us?
Yes. We had our start in corporate video production, which later expanded to broadcast productions for television. We continue to produce promotional, image and branding, marketing and training videos for our business and corporate clients.
Can an event be produced if everyone is working from home?
Yes. We can remotely produce events using either webcams or a local video production company for the presenters to connect to the event platform. The audience can view the live stream on any connected device.
Is live streaming to a social media site like Facebook or YouTube a good idea?
Since most social media sites allow you to live stream for free, they have restrictions to their service. Use of unlicensed, copyrighted music often triggers warnings and will even disconnect the stream. Platforms may limit the length and quality of the livestream, and customer support is limited. They are, however, a popular way to reach thousands of viewers at minimal cost.
Alternatives are available and we work with over a dozen platforms on a regular basis.
