When a Jozi business owner is asking ‘How much does it cost to stream an event in Johannesburg?” providing us with some insight can narrow down the costs. For example:


– The length of the event plays a role in costs, because longer events require more crew working more.

– The size of the viewing audience is important, because larger audiences require a higher bandwidth for the event to have proper streaming.

– The size of the event is crucial because a single- presentation event requires less crew than a multi-presentation event.
