Already in 2003 we had our first experiences to play a video wall at church concerts. This consisted of a beamer, our cameras were still analog with self-made network transmission adapters and we recorded everything on VHS recorders 🙂
Streaming for ORF 2006
We then had our first major streaming job in 2006. As theology students we were asked by the ORF at short notice for the World Youth Day in Cologne. Whether we can help with Marcus Marschalek’s weltjugendtags tv project.
We packed our car full of all kinds of lights, camcorders etc and drove to Cologne. There we helped to light up a studio and were responsible as cameramen for the broadcast of a concert, among other things.
From hobby to profession
Nevertheless, it always remained just a hobby. Over the years, we have broadcast party conventions, streamed funerals in case relatives couldn’t come, and repeatedly made the video wall at concerts.
Through our many years of working in tourism, we learned about the needs of guests and how to stage experiences.
During the pandemic, we then founded Hybrid Streaming in 2021 linking our various interests to create unique experiences for guests and viewers. We streamed conferences, city and museum tours, travel fairs, funerals and many other events that could only be held on a small scale locally.
The past years have changed a lot. Today, even seventy-year-old retirees participate in online meetings as a matter of course and are familiar with computers, the Internet and social media. It is standard to be able to watch videos about various products and offers on You-Tube or directly on the seller’s website.
Conferences and events will again be held on site, but with lower attendance. Many guests no longer travel specially. It has become common to have events both on-site and online. We specialize in nevertheless bringing these two groups of participants together and creating a shared experience.
It is just as important to us to integrate speakers professionally and comprehensively via the Internet. The new technologies enable us to attract people as speakers who do not have to travel long distances for this purpose and for whom there are no additional costs for accommodation and on-site support.
