In today’s world, it’s more important than ever to stay connected to your school community. Live streaming is an excellent way for schools to connect with parents, students, and supporters wherever they are — especially when they can’t attend events. Whether your school is holding classes in person or remotely, there are plenty of events worth streaming, and we’re here to make it easy for you to do so.
Many schools have been broadcasting their sporting events for years, and rely on live streaming to not only deliver games to folks who can’t cheer on the team from the stands, but also raise money for their athletic programs. With BoxCast’s Ticketing feature, you can easily set a ticket price for fans tuning into games from home. We’ll handle the processing and details!
Not playing sports this season? No problem. Our Simulated Live feature lets you rebroadcast classic events like rivalry games, championships, rallies, and more to increase engagement. You can also use Simulated Live for non-sporting events such as plays, concerts, lectures . . . even graduations. Clip highlights to showcase the most exciting parts of your broadcast and pique your audience's interest.
If the beginning of the decade has taught us anything, it’s that things can change quickly. Securely streaming important announcements, along with PTA and/or school board meetings, is another great way to keep parents and interested parties in the loop as things progress throughout the school year.
Whatever content you stream, consider simulcasting to extend your reach beyond your website to connect with more viewers. Simulcasting allows you to stream to multiple destinations at once — from Facebook Live to YouTube Live, to Apple TV to Roku, and beyond.
