New member here, and completely lost and overwhelmed in what I'd like to try and achieve. Any guidance would be so much appreciated...
I currently have an internet radio broadcast streaming via an automation program, 24hrs./7days. Been operating over one year now. Recently, I was visited by a rep from an Internet TV provider (CityLink) and was presented their product. It was very affordable, but in the course of one day's studying/decision, I lost the opportunity to another leaser of the channel for my city. But it got me to thinking, surely they are not the only game in town, and maybe I can find other options?
Further explanation. My small operation is one-person. Building listenership is difficult in today's society, with so many other distractions. But, the thought of being able to offer a video feed along with my station broadcast was enticing, and I started thinking streaming local sports, and other events would surely help me to grow, and better yet, offer more local content to my area, which as many of us know, is sorely lacking. In the meantime when no live events or even prerecorded events are to be broadcast, I would envision just a still image or something similar to be displayed.
So, can someone simply explain the basic process to me? Could it be affordable? (yes, I believe I could sell ads, sponsors for events, etc.) It would be starting as simply as one camera view, either in studio, or one in the field, for example to broadcast a high school football game with announcer.
In several hours of searching online, I stumbled upon the site for LiveStreaming. Earlier I spoke with a Chat rep, and they referred me to look into the Wowza process.....
Again, appreciate any guidance offered.
