Benefits of audio-only webcasting
A ‘listen only’ option delivers most of the benefits of video webcasting at significantly less cost.
Minimal set-up costs.
No additional staff required.
Participants in meetings are generally less intimidated when they know the meeting webcast is voice-only.
Listeners on mobile devices will have a far better experience as audio uses a fraction of the bandwidth of video.
Uttlesford District Council have helped develop the Audiominutes system. Cllr Eric Hicks, Uttlesford District Council said “I should say how impressed I was with the sound reproduction and clarity. The ‘jump-to’ drop-down menu was so helpful also. Great job!” Uttlesford’s live stream page and meetings archive can be found here.
