Video Streaming of Funerals.
COVID has brought a new realisation that private Video Streaming of Funerals. Friends and family can witness a funeral by having the Funeral Service filmed or streamed. It may be that some family members and friends are unable to attend due to ill health, living at a distance, maybe overseas.

Funeral Live Streaming
Funeral Audio and Video.
To go live we need to have an internet connection via broadband or mobile signal. We use LiveU technology that splits the video signal into smaller sections and sends it via EE, Vodaphone, Three, and O2 this ensures we get a good high-resolution HD 1080 video stream If there are connection issues the LiveU system is adaptive to adjust for a lower data rates. We record the service too so after the event we can upload a high-resolution video if the live stream is compromised.
- Make your booking direct or through funeral directors. If the booking is direct, you must ensure you have permission from the venue.
- You receive an internet URL that you can share with those who want to view it. Please note that if the link is shared on social media, then anyone can watch it.
- If the venue is new to us, we will arrange a visit to check the technical issues.
- We turn up on the day around an hour before the ceremony to set up equipment.
- The live stream usually starts 15 mins before the ceremony begins. Viewers initially see a title screen, shortly after that the screen goes live as people file in, the sound goes live at the start of the service to avoid overheard chatter. The stream stops as soon as the congregation disperses.
- After the recorded version of the service is uploaded you can still view the service on the same link which will remain in place for a year, or terminated earlier if requested.
