On the day
5stream generally set up at least 2 hours prior to the commencement of your event. We will set up a camera – or cameras and video switching equipment – in suitable locations as discussed with you. Our experienced professionals can also provide microphones for commentators – or take a feed from an existing PA system.
The live stream will run at a 30-45 second delay, depending on where your viewers are watching from. 5stream is able to insert video ads as well as run watermarks and titles throughout the course of the live stream.
5stream can continue hosting a recorded copy of your sports game – which will generally be available within an hour or so of the stream finishing. This can be sold at the same – or different – PPV price, or included within the live stream purchase. 5stream also records full HD footage to cameras, and can create a fully post produced version of your game – or give you the raw files.
