San Antonio Event Streaming Costs
Streaming an event in San Antonio will require a camera crew, specialty equipment and various technology needs. When clients ask us, “how much does it cost to stream an event in San Antonio?” We respond with key questions about the event that they’re planning to help us determine their crew and equipment needs. We may ask:
– How long is the event?
– How long do you intend to stream?
– How large is the intended audience?
– Where will the event be streamed?
– What quality are you expecting? (broadcast quality is certainly more expensive than a typical stream)
Don’t be surprised when we tell you that camera crew costs run between $100 and $250 per hour for each member of the crew as follows:
– 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
The size of the crew and individual experience and background of each crew member will directly influence his or her hourly rate. Expect to pay more for the production of an event stream that requires advanced setup and technology. You might pay a little less if the event is less complex overall.
Additional San Antonio Streaming Costs
In addition to the camera crew, when clients ask us, “how much does it cost to stream an event in San Antonio?” we’re thinking about unique technology needs such as a CDN, 4K support, a production switcher and various other elements that may or may not be required for your event stream. Each of these factors will directly influence the cost of your stream.
When we tell clients that most events in San Antonio can be streamed for between $1,000 and $5,000 per day, we also make sure they are aware of the many different needs that can (and will) increase the individual cost of streaming your event. It all really just depends on the event itself.
