Streaming things live via the Internet

Engaging others through visuals and chat capabilities 24/7

USTREAM.TV does this and so much more.

Doors can be opened for organizations if they take advatage of sites like this. I can’t help but think that the OKC Zoo should use it to stream live videos of different animals, possibly highlighting a species each week and send a link to ZooFriends members. Having it available on the Internet would probably encourage visitors from other states to come visit the OKC Zoo if they had a glimpse of the great exhibits it has to offer.

I found USTREAM.TV helpful when I wanted to watch the NASCAR pre-seasonĀ  Gatorade Duels and didn’t have access to the Speed Channel. They offered it on USTREAM so I was able to watch a portion of it while on-campus at OSU.

Positive ways I’ve seen USTREAM.TV used:

  • To advertise puppies and kittens for sale. You can choose your next pet by watching it interact on the Internet.
  • To show up-close visuals of animals that would normally be hard to view unless you were a part of the Discovery Channel crew.
  • To promote a band or artist that needs extra publicity.
  • To broadcast a radio station so listeners can view the DJs they normally only hear.
  • To stream a Social Media class’s guest speaker so those who aren’t in the class or couldn’t attend could still watch and ask questions. @billhandy used this feature in my OKstate Social Media class when guest speaker, @mkokc, joined us in a discussion about the possibilities of using social media.

My suggestion: Visit USTREAM.TV and find a way that you can utualize the features and capabilities it has to offer.
