What is video webcasting?
Video webcasting is a cost-effective,
fast and simple way to broadcast audio
or video content to an unlimited audience,
by taking advantage of the internet.
It is the perfect solution for training
videos, symposiums and annual shareholder
meetings. This can be done “live,” or
as an archived program. Most clients
opt for archived programs.
How does VCR
Active Media create an archived "webcast"?
We program with Microsoft Corona, which
eliminates the need for any "THIRD
PARTY" plug-ins. Simply put, your
viewers don't need anything more than
a Windows PC (any version!) and speakers
to receive and view/hear the presentation.

come on site one to two hours before
the presentation is to begin. We will
bring our own crew and production equipment
(camera, audio & lighting packages)
as well as videotape stock. Once the
camera crew is finished setting up and
testing the equipment they are then
ready to tape the presentation in its
entirety. During the presentation, we
will also have a staff member on site
to time the associated PowerPoint presentation.
Once the presentation
is completed, it’s back to our suites
where our editors will then take the
raw video footage from the presentation
and remove any unnecessary scenes or
onstage bloopers. A new master video
is then created. While the video editing
process is proceeding we will convert
the PowerPoint slides that were used
during the presentation into an internet-friendly
The new master video
is then encoded with Microsoft Corona.
With the encoded Windows Media file
completed and all of the Microsoft PowerPoint
slides converted, VCR Active Media will
then sync the converted PowerPoint slides
to the Windows Media file. Once this
step is completed the master video webcast
The final step is
