Funeral streaming service is a relatively new space that is becoming popular with churches, mortuaries and burial service providers who supply live streaming capabilities for their customers that have video cameras mounted strategically within the chapel where the funeral service will take place. Different encoding software tied to the video camera system is launched to begin a live streaming event or live streaming video feed at an appointed time. When that time arrives, the cameras will switch on automatically and transmit the funeral service live over the Internet, also the system may be able to do some recording at the same time.

Usually, the funeral provider will give mourners and family members access to the event’s recording for a period of time after the day of the live event. This gives extended family and those who are not able to view the service live a chance to watch the recorded version online at a more convenient time.

Additional requirements for live streaming a funeral or event live.

At the place of broadcast meaning the funeral home, church, or burial site one must have bandwidth available via a wired connection or a wireless connection. The main concern is the up speed of the connection because this is going to dictate the quality of the live video stream or transmission. What this means is the quality of the video shown to the end-user will be 100% dependent on the up speed and quality of the Internet connection. So let’s just say you only had 1.5 megs “1500Kb” upon a wireless connection. What this means is your video feed to the streaming server could only be at the most 1000kb to 1200kb stream so you have a smooth encoding session to the streaming server and not produce a bunch of dropped packets and buffering.  Buffering is the most common problem with streaming, which is where the program’s video packet delivery doesn’t fill up quickly enough, leading to a break in the stream or a reduction in quality. You wouldn’t want to saturate your uplink speed for this reason so this means you most likely produce a smaller quality video feed like an HD720 feed versus a 1080P feed.
