Audio for on location attendees

Do note that the mics provided are for online viewers. If you require sound for attendees present, a separate audio team and audio mixing system should be catered for.

Unless the environment is part of the story, a quiet environment is where most businesses would want to webcast their digital townhalls or earnings announcement from.

Accessibility for your speakers.

If your speakers/presenters are flying in from overseas, having an easily accessible helps ensure that they can find the place easily by taxi, arrive on time without drama or get flustered trying to navigate a maze of industrial corridors.

Internet access

Internet access with at least 15 mbit sustained upload that isn’t shared with other applications while the webcast is ongoing.

Well lit environment

Unless you would like to have lights brought in, having a well lit environment allows your speakers to be presented in the best of light. A lighting package can be brought in if required.

Avoid locations accessible only by stairs

Webcasting takes a fair bit of equipment. If the only way to get your webcast location is by going up flights of narrow stairway, its best to give it a pass and select a more accessible location. (preferably with lifts and loading bay)
