At Beverly Boy Productions, we’re frequently asked about event streaming costs in Raleigh. We usually let clients know that streaming costs can range somewhere between $1,000 and $5,000 per event stream, per day. However, various individual factors related to the event can alter that cost including things like crew size, equipment and technology needs, or the overall length of the streamed content or event. For additional information, contact us at 888-462-7808.

Raleigh Event Streaming Costs

Streaming a Raleigh event for your business will be directly influenced by the size and expertise of the film crew responsible for producing the event. Individual film crew rates vary greatly but typically range between $100 and $250 per crew member, per hour. A more experienced crew will charge on the upper end whereas a crew member with less experience may charge on the lower end.

Expect to pay the following:

– Director – up to $250 per hour

– Camera Operator – up to $400 per hour

– Equipment – up to $100s per hour

– Narrator – up to $400 per hour

– Switcher – up to $200 per hour

– Streaming platform – $50 to $1,000 (depends on the platform and usage)

– B-Roll – usually a percentage of the total cost between 10 and 50%

– Miscellaneous Fees – very little or could be 1,000s

In addition to each of these individual Raleigh film crew rates, when you ask, “how much does it cost to stream an event in Raleigh?” Our team starts to think about exactly what size and type of crew you’ll need. Will a small, two camera crew with minimal technical support and a switcher do the job? Or will a large crew, with multiple camera operators, a host, and a broadcast engineer be required to pull off the experience?

Additional Cost Considerations

When you ask, “how much does it cost to stream an event in Raleigh?” don’t be surprised if we answer:

– How long is the event intended to be?

– How big is the audience?

– How many days will the event last?

– What broadcast quality are you expecting?

– Where will the event be distributed?

All of these questions come up because we’re trying to decide what type of equipment and technology will be required to stream your event. We’re thinking about whether or not a CDN will be needed and if a broadcast engineer is a likely requirement. We’re also thinking about various other needs that will directly influence the total cost of the production.

The total cost to stream an event in Raleigh may be between $1,000 and $5,000 for most single-day events but a multi-day event with a lot of technical needs and a larger crew could cost tens of thousands of dollars. It all really depends on the unique needs of your event.
