FUNERAL LIVE STREAMING & WEBCASTING EXPERTS
Letting Everyone Say Goodbye
Wessex Live TV offer a range of live webcasting options for Funerals, Memorials or Cremation Services across the UK. With the current COVID restrictions many family members or relatives can't always attend a funeral to say goodbye and pay their respects. By Live webcasting the funeral service we can provide a great alternative allowing those who are unable to attend the opportunity to participate, say goodbye and watch the service for themselves over the internet in real time from anywhere in the world.
We provide high quality, broadcast grade HD cameras along with reliable bonded internet connections this means we can live-stream from almost any location, such as churches, crematoriums or graveside. We specialise in remote location live webcasting from venues with no mobile signal or local broadband connection, by deploying our mobile satellite kit we can continue to offer a full HD live webcast of the service.
We offer 2 types of packages, the first being a Single Camera live stream with a fixed point of view and the second an unobtrusive multi-camera live stream with remotely controlled cameras placed around the church to capture different views.
Live Webcasting for Funerals, Memorials & Cremation Services
Alex live streamed my father in laws funeral service and burial, and did a superb job. When making arrangement for the funeral, we considered trying to film the event ourselves using phones, and I’m so, so glad we used Alex instead. As soon as I arrived, it was clear that the setup was professional and far beyond anything we could have done. Our Irish relatives were really grateful to be able to watch along, having been unable to travel due to Covid. As I attended the funeral, I did not expect to watch it back again, but Alex did such a lovely job my wife and I have watched it a few times now.
Made such a difference
So many wanted to see my wife’s funeral from as far afield as Australia, Canada and the USA, as well as Europe and many in the UK. We had 40 on line viewers at the time and many viewed afterwards. All were complimentary. Faultless professional, unobtrusive service from Alex right at a time when that is what you want above all. Many thanks
Passing of Ray Bocking
I hired Alex from Wessexlive TV. I was very apprehensive of the thought of live streaming a funeral. With over 100 people wanting to come it was the best decisions I could have made as only 15 people could a tend the church. I had messages from all over the world from relations of Ray’s. Saying WOW what a web link & was very well presented sound 100% & the filming 100%. You would not know Alex was even there. Alex even told me how may people had view it on the day just after the services. If I need a recording for a much happy time, I would have no hesitation in booking this firm. Once you have the web link it stays. I could not fault this firm in any way. Thank You Alex
What a success your filming was!
In these times of Covid restrictions it was the perfect way to include people who could not attend the Service in person. When our friend told us he had found you, I did have my doubts as to whether it would work: but it was simply perfect. You were discreet, unobtrusive, efficient and did everything that your online brochure said you would. Thank you very much indeed. We are incredibly grateful and will certainly recommend you.

ON THE DAY
On the day of the Funeral Service we will typically arrive around 1.5-2 Hours before the funeral. We will introduce ourselves and walk around the venue to check the best camera positions.
Once setup we perform a number of tests to check the live stream is transmitting correctly.
To capture clear audio we kindly ask the Priest or Celebrant to wear a clip on radio microphone, we also place a shotgun microphone at the lectern to capture anyone delivering a reading or eulogy. We also use a second shotgun microphone to capture ambient sounds such as music or the organist.
We remain discreet throughout the service, There is no moving around or relocating the camera during the service. Our monitoring tools allow us to check the quality of the live stream ensuring it is being received by the viewers.
Once the service has finished, the funeral video will remain online for 90 days to be replayed and watched again.
