Webcasts - Venue Network Requirements Overview

Last updated January 29, 2020

WorkCast Webcasts

The WorkCast Webcast team can stream live events using the WorkCast Platform from anywhere in the world.  As part of the event planning and preparation stages the network at the venue should be reviewed.  

The following requirements should be considered when choosing your venue

  • At least 3 network connections available near planned location for streaming equipment, or a single port which allows a network switch to be connected. Although wired internet connections are preferable, we recognise that many venues may only provide WiFi. We can stream successfully using WiFi, however this does increase the risk on an event as this network is unlikely to be dedicated.

  • Ports 80 (http), 443 (SSL) and 1935 (RTMP) open for UPSTREAM and downstream connections

  • A minimum of 10mbps UP/DOWN speed.

  • Ensure H264 MP4 streaming and progressive download not blocked by firewall or packet sniffing system.

If customers are unsure of venues meeting these requirements we are happy to discuss with their IT support teams to ensure the LiveStream will be successful. 

If you have any questions about venue network requirements for your event please contact us at events@workcast.com
