Sydney-based live-streaming and video on-demand company Webcastcloud has been named a NSW finalist in the Meetings & Events Australia (MEA) 2019 Awards Program under the Events Technology Category.

“We are honoured to be announced as a finalist for the MEA Awards. This designation comes at a time when virtual events and live streaming services have taken on new importance. We support corporate branded video channels, pay-per-view and offer seamless integration with CRMs and websites to streamline viewers’ access to video content and events amid the pandemic,” says Webcastcloud chief operations officer Jordana Davis.

“At Webcastcloud, our desire to innovate our platform and continually push the envelope has meant we have had to let go of existing paradigms, and continually focus on our business objectives, one of which is to create an agile and diverse business. We have developed the platform internally, allowing us to be able to advance the business quickly and efficiently through ideas and enhance our product from feature requests by our customers.”

MEA’s National Awards program is the longest running, pre-eminent awards program in Australia. For more than 25 years, Meetings & Events Australia has recognised and celebrated the outstanding achievements and expertise of individuals and organisations in the events sector – rewarding excellence, creativity and professionalism in the design, management, delivery, servicing and advancement of the events industry in Australia.

The MEA 2019 National Awards event will be broadcast online from The Studio at ICC Sydney on Friday 29 May, between 6-8pm AEST.

Providing event services across different industries in Australia and around the globe for the past 6 years, Webcastcloud’s video platform allows organizations to drive additional revenue through video monetization solutions like pay-per-view, subscriptions and event packages.

Whilst viewers can search and stream live or on-demand videos through a high-quality online and interactivity experience – keeping them engaged online for longer

The technology has been successfully implemented by a number of Australian Associations including Meetings & Events Australia with their launch of MEA TV in 2019 at their Evolve 2019 Conference.  Through Webcastcloud, MEA are able to communicate with members and the wider Australian events community and to post relevant content for the industry.

Ms Davis says that unlike other video-streaming products on the market, the difference with Webcastcloud’s platform is the ability, to custom brand their video library and webcasts; and deliver different tiers of videos to members and virtual event attendees through free, paid, secure and subscriber video content.

Ms Davis says that Webcastcloud is an Australian company, which is important with regard to data collection and data ownership.  Webcastcloud’s clients have peace of mind that the data is collected and stored in Australia,” Ms Davis says.

“We are 100 per cent Australian owned, our Australian customers can have all their data stored within our Australian cloud region. When it comes to intellectual property, it’s important for organisations to know who owns the data and where it resides.”

“Our live-streaming platform is extremely versatile to suit events or all shapes and sizes. With the increase in virtual events  we are  seeing a huge uptake in live streaming, simulated live events and pre-event video capture for drip-fed virtual events that run over a few weeks rather than 1-2 days. It’s an exciting time to be in video”
