Event Streaming Cost Considerations

When a River City business owner asks, ‘How much does it cost to stream an event in Richmond?” A few considerations for your event and your budget could be along these lines:

  • The length of the event impacts cost, as the longer the event, the more crew you may need. 
  • The expected size of your viewers is something that can also impact cost as a large audience requires more bandwidth. 
  • The overall size of the event matters when budgeting. A single presentation event calls for fewer crew members than a large event with multiple presentations.
