LIVE 2A Conversations

LIVE Conversations allow open discussion and new ideas to be presented

What is LIVE Streaming

Live Streams are like a TV / Radio show, but online
As a live show host, you can schedule a show, invite guests, have a great 2A conversation, then the conversation will become a video that you can share to multiple platforms

Why LIVE Stream a 2A Conversation?

  • Virtual meetings allow participants from all over the country to join in.
  • LIVE Shows can be scheduled and promoted
  • During the LIVE show, you’ll get feedback from viewers for a truly interactive conversation
  • LIVE Show participants can share their Computer Screens, Photos, even videos
  • There are methods to communicate/coordinate between guests while LIVE
  • LIVE Conversations are ‘rendered’ into standard video files

Going LIVE can be accomplished in a few methods, which change with technology
Many have been participating in LIVE 2A conversations since 2009 with platforms that no longer exist (QIK, BlogTV, etc)
Early live platforms would record the live streams, then ‘render; them into videos on their platforms after the broadcast
YouTube started Google Hangouts in 2010, and ended that service in Aug 2019
