FAQ

Who can see the stream?

I have two options, option one is your stream will be embedded onto my web page under 'Clients Area' where anyone can view your ceremony/event or options two, I share a link to a page where you are able to view the stream and only people with this link can see your ceremony/event

Does our venue need to provide an internet connection?

A hard wired internet connection provided by your venue or church is the most reliable option. If that isn’t possible, we have special cellular equipment and can stream over the Spark network or Starlink Satellite, this is what we use for weddings/tangi's/ other services where there is limited internet access.

Is it possible to play back a pre-recorded speech, or other video in the stream?

Yes, it’s common for close whanau/family who aren’t able to attend in person to send video tributes. We can play these tributes in the stream for everyone watching from home.

What kind of quality can I expect?

Streaming quality is dependent on internet speed. With a fast and reliable connection, the stream will look fantastic. We always recommend connecting into the venues internet via ethernet cable for reliable connection. We will do our best to test the internet speed ahead of time to ensure it’s fast enough. That said, internet connections are never guaranteed, and it’s possible that your stream may be interrupted. We will make a local recording of the service at the same time we stream it. If the internet goes down, we will upload our recording as soon as we’re able to re-establish a connection.

What impact will streaming have on the Tangi/Funeral Service?

Our streaming set-up is discrete, and will not affect the service in any way. We will place two or three cameras on tripods around the perimeter of the service set-up. These cameras will not block anyone’s view. If you have included the mobile camera option, the camera operator will not interfere with service, and will shoot from a respectful distance.

How much does it cost?

Pricing starts at $1250 for a basic Package. Cheaper as an add on.

What parts of funeral can be streamed?

We can stream the funeral service in its entirety, including the graveside portion.

What happens if the internet connection at the funeral site is too slow to stream, or cuts out before the service is over?

We will do our best to test the internet speed ahead of time to ensure it’s fast enough. That said, internet connections are never guaranteed, and it’s possible that your stream may be interrupted. We will make a local recording of the service at the same time we stream it. If the internet goes down, we will upload our recording as soon as we’re able to re-establish a connection.

What do virtual guests need to view the live stream?

Anyone wishing to view the stream simply needs a device with a connection to the internet. For example a computer, smartphone, or tablet. They will also need the link to the private website or my website where your stream will be shown.

No passwords, just a link

Okay, we’re keen. How do we book?

Sweet! Once we’ve made sure we’re a good fit we’ll send you through some paperwork where you can fill in the details and pay your deposit to secure your date.

Can we make a pencil booking?

Yes you can, however I do work on a 'first in first served' basis. Meaning that I only confirm a solid booking once an agreement has been submitted and a non refundable deposit has been received.
