2021 Commencement Updates
We are quickly moving into the 2021 commencement season for both colleges and high schools. Since the start of Covid-19, we have worked hard to follow all recent and developing guidelines for graduation ceremonies to help our clients navigate their events efficiently.
As we move into this year's commencement ceremonies, here are the top trends and requirements you will need to follow closely to have a graduation ceremony in 2021 successfully. As always, our team is here to help you navigate these changes with ease. We are fully equipped to support the new guidelines and recommendations for 2021 commencement ceremonies. You can contact our team here to learn more and secure your space for event management.
Outdoor commencement ceremonies
In order to safely social distance and meet the CDC suggestions, outdoor ceremonies will take the lead for 2021. This requires a unique approach to handle outdoor audio, staging, seating, and video needs. Our team is prepared to help you implement these changes with our high-quality equipment and trained technicians. While some events will be entirely outdoors, some also have a hybrid component, which you can read about below.
Hybrid graduation ceremonies
Hybrid graduation ceremonies have both an in-person and virtual component to them. Typically, students will be able to graduate (outdoors), and loved ones will be able to stream the event from home, through their computers, or other smart devices. This option is great to help with social distancing and allows family members from all over the USA to watch the event from their homes' safety and comfort.
Hybrid events do require the right audio, video, and live streaming set up, but our team has everything you need to have a hybrid commencement ceremony successfully. Keep reading to learn more about live streaming and how it can elevate your student's commencement event.
So what exactly is live streaming? To put it simply, live video streaming allows you to record an event as it is happening and send the live feed to a location of your choice (social media, streaming platform, etc.) In order to successfully live stream an event, you will need;
- High-quality audio
- Video capabilities
- Streaming capabilities
- High-quality video
- The ability to pre-record and edit if needed
What are the next steps?
While these requirements might sound a little overwhelming, we are happy to help you. Our team of fully trained experts and our 25 years of experience allow us to provide high-quality event services for our clients. We have your equipment, video, event management, and event needs covered, so contact our team today to schedule a no-cost call and let's get your event moving forward.
