As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, families have to make funeral decisions they have never encountered before. Because more than 10 people are not allowed to gather, many families are left with questions about how to commemorate the death of a loved one.
One of the options currently being offered to families by funeral directors is online streaming of funeral videos. This is a flexible solution that allows you to have the closest family members at the funeral in person if you want, and other people attend at home.
Live Streaming Allows People To Visit Remotely
The idea of live streaming a loved one’s funeral on Facebook or Instagram may seem strange or even shocking, but in these times of blocking, more and more families are turning to social media to allow people to attend funerals.
Live broadcast is a term used to describe the transmission of data over the Internet (usually audio and video) in a continuous stream. Funeral Internet broadcast is when this live broadcast is used to transmit the actual footage of the funeral streaming service, as it takes place in real time.
This is a relatively new technology currently used by a number of funeral directors that allows mourners who cannot attend a funeral for any reason to remotely monitor the event from a device connected to the Internet.
How Does Streaming Burial Work?
The broadcast of the flood funeral involves the strategic installation of video cameras in the chapel where the funeral will take place. The software allows the funeral organizers to program the operation of the system at the appointed time. When this time comes, the cameras turn on automatically and transmit the funeral service live over the Internet, while also recording it.
The quality of the transmission will depend on the speed and quality of the Internet connection and the number of people watching, but some providers sacrifice a percentage of quality to allow those with slower Internet connections to participate. Buffering is the most common problem with streaming, because the program’s temporary memory does not fill up quickly enough, which results in thread interruption or poor quality.
How Can You Tell People About A Live Streaming Program?
There are several ways to notify those who may want or need to view an online funeral service. You can email them a link to the funeral home provider’s website, which will allow them to log in at the appropriate time. You can also provide broadcast details in your public funeral announcements, or if you want it to be a private viewing only, you can share the password with whoever you want to access.
