Welcome to the grand theatre of outdoor events, where every detail is a stroke of orchestrated genius, from the flutter of a marquee wall to the flicker of a screen broadcasting live to an audience far beyond the physical confines of the site.

In event planning, especially at the scale we operate here at Purvis Marquee Hire, technology isn’t just an accessory; it is often the backbone. As seasoned veterans in the marquee hire business, we’ve witnessed the transformation of outdoor events from simple gatherings to complex multimedia showcases. And in today’s digital age, livestreaming isn’t just an option; it’s sometimes an imperative to catapult your event into the limelight and capture an audience on a global stage.

Why Livestream?

Before diving into the detail, let’s address the elephant in the room. Why should your next mega event invest in livestreaming? Simply put, livestreaming extends your reach, maximizes engagement, and offers a versatile platform for sponsors and stakeholders to amplify their visibility. According to a report in Event Industry News, events incorporating livestreaming have seen a 30% increase in audience engagement and sponsorship opportunities.

Choosing the Right Tech

Selecting the right technology for livestreaming isn’t just about the highest resolution or the most powerful software. It’s about compatibility with the unpredictable dynamics of outdoor events. Here are some focal points:

  • Robust Connectivity Options: Opt for a mixture of wired and wireless solutions. Wired connections offer stability, while wireless ensures flexibility across sprawling, multi-site locations. Satellite internet can be a game-changer in remote locales where traditional internet services falter.
  • High-Quality Streaming Gear: Invest in professional-grade cameras and sound equipment that can withstand the rigours of outdoor settings. Weather-resistant gear is crucial, as the elements can be unforgiving.
  • Reliable Power Sources: Power outages are the Achilles’ heel of outdoor events. Employ uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) and portable generators as backups to keep the show running smoothly.
  • Advanced Streaming Platforms: Platforms like YouTube Live, Facebook Live, and bespoke services tailored to large-scale events provide the infrastructure necessary to reach a vast audience seamlessly.

Integrating Livestreaming with Physical Infrastructure

At Purvis, we understand that the success of livestreaming also depends on the physical setup. Marquees aren’t just shelters; they are complex environments that need to support a plethora of tech equipment. Strategically placed rigging points for cameras and sound, discreet yet effective cable management systems, and modular designs that allow for the easy incorporation of tech installations are all part of our bespoke solutions.

Preparing for the Unexpected

In our decades in the marquee hire industry, if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that adaptability is key. Conduct thorough tech rehearsals, simulate potential weather scenarios, and have a tech troubleshooting team on standby. As highlighted in The Stage, preparedness transforms potential disasters into mere hiccups.

Conclusion? There Isn’t One

Every event is a live performance, with its own set of unexpected twists and turns. Livestreaming isn’t just broadcasting your event; it’s about crafting an experience that resonates with those who are miles away yet right there with you, every step of the way. Our experience of working with both LIQUID STUDIOS AND TV broadcasters has broadened our experience exponentially.

As you plan your next grand outdoor spectacle, consider not just the lights and the camera but the action that unfolds when the digital world meets the dynamism of live events. With Purvis by your side, rest assured, your event’s success isn’t just seen—it’s experienced
