Live webcast emerges as a new trend in Kerala

Kochi: Live webcast is emerging as a trend in God's Own Country as well. People don't have to worry now onwards if they cannot attend a special occasion of their relative as everything can be viewed live through the internet.

Live webcast is mainly used by non resident Malayalees from Pathanamthitta, Kottayam, Alappuzha and Idukki districts. Baptisms, weddings, funeral services, church celebrations, festivals, etc are most of the functions that are being webcast or overseas audience.

Most people are happy with this service as the gap between relatives and cousins, who live far away, has been reduced due to this technology. Most of the NRIs who request for this service are from USA, UK, Australia and the Gulf countries.

At the moment funeral services top the list of events that are webcast most. Last year itself, 30 funeral services were webcast live, said 'Video Live' owner KS Shyam. Non-availability of  air tickets makes relatives watch the funeral services via internet, he added.

A laptop and a mixer unit are among the must-have hardware or software required for webcasting. A video editor will also be at work who will edit and upload the video. At least five lakh viewers can view the webcast at a time as the bandwidth traffic can be controlled with the use of clouding computing technology. 

Malayalees are yet to utilise the full potential of the service, said Shyam. Another interesting factor about this is that it can be viewed 20 seconds faster than live telecasting. About five companies, who provide this service, are establishing themselves in Central Kerala.
