We shot our live broadcast of Brad Van Liew’s Charleston finish of the Velux Race yesterday from a Carolina skiff with a half dozen alcoholic sailors aboard and a cooler full of Pabst Blue Ribbon. No pro videographers, no interns, no research staff, hell, no vodka, yet we still had well over 150,000 hits of the webcast, once again proving that, contrary to what the old guard have been saying for decades, there sure as hell are people who want to watch sailing on their screens.
So tune in to my live webinar at Noon EDT today (1700 Zulu) to learn how to set up your own live streaming sailing coverage. I’m going to teach you the basics on how to go from nothing to a decent quality feed in a few hours. We’ll go into audio and video equipment, web settings, cables, computers, and personnel. I’ll even get into costs and tell you the best places to get good deals on cameras that work well for this kind of thing. I might not give out ALL my secrets, but I’ll sure as hell get you started.
