How do I set up a live event?
The selection of free do-it-yourself live streaming platforms is extensive thanks to social media top dogs. The same goes for providers with additional chargeable functions . In general, the decision depends, among other things, on the technical equipment used, the conditions set by the providers themselves and their preference as to which provider, which data protection conditions and tools provided are suitable for live broadcasting or which target groups for the content to be offered are likely to be effectively encountered on which platforms.
A selection of important live streaming platforms can be found here.
