COVDID-19 Impacting the Video Production Industry and why Live Streaming is BOOMING!

COVDID-19 Impacting the Video Production Industry and why Live Streaming is BOOMING!

With COVID-19 spreading throughout the USA and the rest of the world, many faced with weeks of quarantine and self isolation have turned to live streaming as a way to convey their messages to others.

I must say it is very interesting to watch as our industry changes day by day. Film productions, K-12 schools, Universities, and Colleges have been shut down in some places for weeks to months. Teachers are being advised to provide coursework to students via online resources using video. House of worships are now transmitting their services through online live streams on Facebook, YouTube and other social platforms. Concerts and other live music events have been shut down completely or postponed such as the big events SXSW and Ultra Music Festival with bands like The Dropkick Murphys announcing that the "show must go on" streaming their entire 2:00 hour empty venue annual Saint Patricks show in Boston, MA for fans to watch on Facebook.

NAB (National Association Broadcasters), has been completely canceled for April 2020 and the entertainment, film and media industry, have felt the impacts. With many manufacturers not able to keep up with the demand many items are now out of stock. Including Blackmagic's popular ATEM Mini. Luckily, at DVE Store we have a team of professionals who can help you put together live streaming solutions for whatever your needs may be, such as the Roland V-1HD or our Data Video complete live streaming kits.
