10 Best Practices for Live Streaming Production - @StreamingMedia Magazine

10 Best Practices for Live Streaming Production - @StreamingMedia Magazine | Fashion Technology Designers & Startups | Scoop.it

Live online video is exploding in popularity, so read these expert tips to get perfect results when moving an event from the camera to the viewer's screen... 

Even when all the content, talent, cameras, lighting, and audio are worked out, live streaming event production is far from over. The workflow to get the signal from the camera to the viewing audience can make or break the production.

There’s no single solution that fits all budgets and types of events. But in this article I will review some of the best practices and tips to make sure your live event streams go off without a hitch. I’ll cover some information that should be useful to beginners but hopefully more advanced producers will learn something new as well.

These tips come from interviews with industry experts, discussions from panels I’ve moderated at Streaming Media conferences, and my own experiences.

Bonnie Sandy's insight:

Live Streaming is not  only about "Production" businesses now Live stream  their business activities -10 Best Practices  - @StreamingMedia Magazine that may help. I am  encountering more instances where I really need to "livestream" from teh design studio, while trade show shopping, workshops, places where an entourage of "crew' won't  work. So  how does this work in that situation.

It may  seem insignificant  but  it's not  a watch  i'd care to wear! Which brings into question what is the minimum design specs a developer must meet so as to encourage different designs, or will it be an opportunity for 'cases' and/or "covers'.

The Right to be forgotton vs the right to information- Google struggles to find Balance.

We’ve taken this approach because, as article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states: “Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers."

But the European Court found that people have the right to ask for information to be removed from search results that include their names if it is “inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant, or excessive.” In deciding what to remove, search engines must also have regard to the public interest. These are, of course, very vague and subjective tests. The court also decided that search engines don’t qualify for a “journalistic exception.” This means that The Guardian could have an article on its website about an individual that’s perfectly legal, but we might not legally be able to show links to it in our results when you search for that person’s name. It’s a bit like saying the book can stay in the library, it just cannot be included in the library’s card catalogue. 

It’s for these reasons that we disagree with the ruling. That said, we obviously respect the court’s authority and are doing our very best to comply quickly and responsibly. It’s a huge task as we’ve had over 70,000 take-down requests covering 250,000 webpages since May. So we now have a team of people individually reviewing each application, in most cases with limited information and almost no context. 

Bonnie Sandy's insight:

The fact is that most people who want info removed are the very ones whose info needs to be up as a warning to others of exactly what they are  capable of... a politician accused of scams for example or a child sex offender...  i wantto be able to serch and know... s that  worth say teh exclusion of my address or can we deal with the exclusion of that type of info in  a better way!

Stop Saying “Do What You Love, Love What You Do.” It Devalues Actual Work.

Stop Saying “Do What You Love, Love What You Do.” It Devalues Actual Work. | Fashion Technology Designers & Startups | Scoop.it

“One consequence of this isolation is the division that DWYL creates among workers, largely along class lines. Work becomes divided into two opposing classes: that which is lovable (creative, intellectual, socially prestigious) and that which is not (repetitive, unintellectual, undistinguished). Those in the lovable-work camp are vastly more privileged in terms of wealth, social status, education, society’s racial biases, and political clout, while comprising a small minority of the workforce."

Bonnie Sandy's insight:

Being paid for good loving  feel like, well prostitution- Yes I love my love "work"! I also enjoy what I labor at, which is why I value and expect  the best compensation!  Too many  creatives feel guilty expecting  compensation...  It's a simple midset change that makes a huge difference!

If Luxury Brands Want to Ignore #Africa then it's time for Africa to create it's own  @BoF | Fashion Technology Designers & Startups | Scoop.it
LONDON, United Kingdom — Earlier this year, Nigeria became Africa’s largest economy and the 26th largest economy in the world, valued at $509 billion, based on GDP figures that were recalculated using a base year of 2010 instead of 1990. Given Nigeria’s new status, as well as its new crop of millionaires and billionaires, who have become wealthy through oil (Nigeria is the 11th largest oil-producing nation in the world), Nollywood entertainment and other business ventures, one might assume that major luxury good companies would turn their attention towards Nigeria, as well as other emerging markets in Africa, as an important … More
