Top 5 Benefits To Live Streaming A Funeral

There are many benefits to live streaming a funeral, funerals have been a fundamental part of the grieving process for hundreds of years, with countless different types and styles to match beliefs, religions, and requests. In the past few years, these ceremonies have been tested continuously in these hard times, leading to many being unable to attend their loved one’s final moments. From this necessity to adapt, live streaming has become an innovative part of many funeral experiences, bringing a number of benefits to help families and friends in their time of remembrance. This versatile media form allows for a number of benefits to allow everyone the time they need to say goodbye.

1. Connecting a widespread world

One of the key issues that the pandemic has had on funerals is the restrictions made not only to travel but to group sizes for public events. Many have had to miss out on loved one’s funerals due to events reaching the maximum capacity or being unable to leave a country due to travel restrictions. Live streaming a funeral allows anyone around the world to watch the ceremony from the comfort of their own homes, sharing these important moments together, even from afar. Equally, this increase in accessibility allows those unable to travel due to illness or injury the same peace of mind in that they can be there for the ones they cared about final moments.

2. A virtual memorial

Alongside the live event, live streams are able to be recorded and rewatched by mourners a number of times, to better accommodate their grieving needs. This could be from either a file sent to computers or a physical DVD or USB given to attendants who want to rewatch the events in their own time. This recording also allows those who could not attend the live funeral or even don’t have access to the internet an opportunity to still show their respects from their own home, allowing a chance to say goodbye in their own time.

3. Quality view for everyone  

A traditional funeral would have members seated around a venue, with differing levels of quality to that spot, in terms of both being able to see and hear that speaking throughout. Especially for those who may be hard of sight or hearing, these inevitabilities may be a hindrance to what is supposed to be a day of reflection and mourning. By viewing the ceremony through a live stream, attendants are able to enjoy sharp through the use of multiple microphones, many clipped directly to those speaking, allowing for a much smoother viewing experience. Equally, a high-quality camera following the speakers and movement of the occasion keeps the viewers close to the most important parts of the service.

4. Short notices

Each person’s funeral is different, with varying time limits for when they need to be held. Often people can pass away suddenly and unexpectedly, leaving families to act quickly to arrange their funerals, often leaving many not able to attend. Video live streaming can be booked quickly and hassle-free, allowing for those who cannot attend on short notice the opportunity to still be there virtually. Streaming setups vary, but the majority are portable and light, meaning that operators can arrive at venues quickly, move to where they are needed, silently and respectfully record the service and leave without impacting anyone’s experience.

5. Putting minds at ease 

Funerals are a hard and stressful event to plan, especially for those still dealing with the loss of a loved one. A key part of this is trying to accommodate attendants, so everyone can come to pay their respects. By streaming the funeral online, much of this worry and anxiety can be relieved, by guaranteeing that all those who wanted to attend can still be a part of the service, watching live or from a recording. By taking this worry out of the mourners’ hands, they can focus on what’s important in that sad time. Furthermore, teams of professionals can come and record the services for them, leaving family and friends to deal with the day itself.

They did a great job and enabled many of our friends and relatives around the world to be able to join in and be part of the Thanks Giving ceremony for my mother. The visual and audio quality was good and all those viewing really valued the experience.
