Are you planning a Webinar in Singapore for your organisation? If you are looking for a professional live streaming service provider, get in touch with our Project Managers to start discussing your requirements now.
If you are running a Webinar in Singapore for the first time, read on as we share important insights that will make you look like a Pro when proposing ideas to your management.
Physical vs. Fully Virtual Webinar
Are all your webinar presenters located in Singapore? If so, you should seriously consider having the presenters to host the show physically. In that way, our Professional Live Streaming Crew can setup professional video camera with camera operators. No webcam and your presenters do not need to deal with technical issues.
If your presenters are located out of Singapore, you have to consider a virtual or hybrid webinar. If cost is a primary concern, you should settle for a virtual webinar. We can run the virtual webinar from your office or from our office. Our team have also conducted fully virtual webinars with clients logging in from home.
For hybrid webinar, you will likely require a venue like a live streaming studio, hotel function room or a corporate conference room. AV setup will also be necessary along with multiple technical intricacies to consider, on our end and at the remote presenters end. These logistics will add to your webinar production cost.
TL;DR: Physical & hybrid webinar yield the best quality, but a fully virtual webinar is lowest cost.

Hiring A Professional Live Streaming Crew
We can imagine that running a professional Webinar in Singapore is very new to you and many of our corporate clients. Hence, consider hiring a live streaming crew and leveraging on their experience and expertise for your webinar.
A professional live streaming crew usually comes from 3 types of professional backgrounds. Video Production, AV Professionals and Event Management Companies.
Our team’s strength is in Video Production, hence you will notice our video quality, lighting and designs to be our strong points. While we work with external AV crew if you require live bands or sophisticated audio visual setup.
Event management companies will be really well-versed in assisting you in your webinar programming, pre-event preparations and communicating with stakeholders.
Hence, you should select your live streaming partner with this in mind. If your planning committee are familiar with running physical events, you may only require a live streaming technical vendor to assist you in execution of the show. Nonetheless, if you need an events team to assist with administration of your event, look for an events management company.
We work with clients directly, with events management companies and creative agencies.
Hiring A Remote Live Streaming Crew
It is crazy how much we can do remotely, without any physical meeting. Our team have completed multiple Webinars in Singapore without any physical meeting with our clients or the presenters.
We have also worked with clients on the other side of the Earth and executed a Hotel Hybrid Conference Event on their behalf . Involving local presenters, limited size physical audience and presenters around the world.
We are excited to explore the possibilities with you, once again, drop us a note to discuss your webinar, schedule a call or a video conference.
Using Professional Video Camera & Videographer
The professional equipment plays a big part in differentiating your webinar for the amateur ones. We always recommend to gather the host and presenters physically, allowing our crew to use professional camera and equipment to run your webinar. Safe distancing must be observe and we must comply with local laws of course.
While presenters will still have to deal with the stress of speaking into a camera (instead of a physical audience), at least they do not have to worry about technical issues arising from their own laptop and webcam.
Professional Vision Mixing Software
The other part that sets your webinar apart is the use of our professional mixing software, increasing the quality of your webinar multiple folds as compared to a plain video conference.
Using a professional vision mixing software, and sometimes dedicated hardware. We can achieve seamless transitions between camera angles, pre-recorded content and remote speakers. We can also integrate with professional crew from remote studio overseas.
3 Ways To Present PowerPoint Slides
Presentation of slides is usually a part of most webinars. Depending on your webinar style, this can be pre-recorded, physical or virtual.
For pre-recorded live streaming, we can record your slides and apply aesthetic overlays to create picture-in-picture. Showing both your presenter and the slides together.
For physical live streaming, we can integrate your slides into our vision mixer with a couple of ways. The presenters can advance the slides on their own or by his/her assistant.
For virtual live streaming, we have multiple ways for remote control of slides, each with its own benefits and quirks. Discuss with our Project Managers to see how we can integrate your remote slides presentation for your live stream.
Run A Live Q&A Session For Your Webinar
This is a huge engagement tool to liven up your webinar. Open up the chat rooms or official Q&A channels to allow your audience to ask questions to your presenters.
If you are expecting a large audience size for your webinar, don’t forget to use a channel that allow moderation of the Q&As. You don’t want a rogue viewer to ruin your webinar.
Playback of Pre-recorded Content
The use of pre-recorded content for webinar is one of our favourite mode of execution. In most cases, the pre-recorded content elevate the engagement of the webinar. These pre-recorded videos can act as transitions between segment, or they might be a video presentation of a speaker who cannot attend on the actual webinar timing.
Our video production team can assist with the filming & editing of your pre-recorded content. We frequently do this as part of our webinar, or for webinars that are run by clients themselves.
Pre-recorded content usually have a higher production value, as we can trim pauses from the final video. Re-takes are also possible.
Live Streaming with Remote Presenters
With the ongoing travel restriction, we helped our clients to bring speakers from all over Singapore and around the world together for webinars and virtual or hybrid events.
Technical issues are the main concern when connecting overseas speakers. Hence, it will be necessary to conduct technical test prior to your webinar.
