By: The BitMar Team.

The COVID-19 lockdowns has changed the way in which we work. More people are now working remotely than ever before. In fact, a study – by Owl Labs – found: that 58% of remote workers believe that they will continue to work remotely—even post COVID. As a result, the use of live streaming technology has become essential for virtual meetings, and events.

According to a report, by Grand View Research, the global live streaming market was valued, at: $50.1 billion, in 2020. It is expected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (C.A.G.R.), of: 21.0%—from 2021, to 2028. The report cites the increasing adoption of Cloud-based solutions, and the growing demand for live streaming, in the gaming, sports, and entertainment, industries—as key drivers of this growth.

Live streaming can offer many benefits for remote work, including: increased engagement, improved collaboration, and reduced travel costs. It also enables remote workers to participate in meetings, and events, in real-time—regardless of their physical location. In fact, a survey – by Livestream – found: that 80% of people would rather watch a live stream, than read a blog post. Oh, no!

Having the right tools is essential to ensuring successful virtual meetings. Popular live streaming platforms, include: Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, and Webex. Each platform offers different features—such, as: screen sharing, breakout rooms, and virtual backgrounds. Therefore, choosing one that meets your specific needs is important. Additionally: a good Internet connection, high-quality microphone and webcam, are essential for clear audio and video.

According to a study, by Stanford University, the use of video conferencing, for remote work, can lead to increased productivity, and job satisfaction. The study found that remote workers who used video conferencing felt more connected to their colleagues, and were more likely to participate in team meetings. Furthermore, video conferencing reduced the feelings of isolation—which can often come with remote work.

Establish clear guidelines, and expectations, are necessary to a successful virtual meeting. This includes: setting an agenda, establishing ground rules for participation, and providing clear instructions for accessing the live stream. It is also important to test the live stream – ahead of time – to ensure that everything is working properly.

In conclusion, live streaming has become an essential tool for remote work—even after the COVID-19 lockdowns. With the right tools, and guidelines, virtual meetings and events can be just as engaging, and productive, as its in-person counterparts. By embracing live streaming technology, remote workers can stay connected, and collaborate effectively—regardless of their physical location.
