The past few years have seen the use of webcasting technologies reach unprecedented heights. Now, many new easy-to-use and affordable audio, video and software equipment are available. They thus offer artists the possibility of easily using webcasting, whether live or delayed. This technology can not only serve as a complementary tool to a work, but can also be considered as a creative medium generating its own artistic language. Moreover, in addition to being a remarkable archiving tool, it can be integrated into face-to-face events in order to bring together speakers and performances remotely.

During this training, participants will examine different types of webcasting, from the simplest and free on social networks to webcasts using a multi-camera control room and paid platforms. We will present the economic models relating to the different formulas, as well as the necessary equipment and software.



  • Webcast with a phone or camera via free social media platforms.
  • Distinguish the advantages and disadvantages of the different dissemination platforms and definethose that would be the most appropriate for their artistic projects.
  • Explore multi-camera webcast production with Blackmagic ATEM MINI.
  • Webcast within the Isadora multimedia software.

Who can benefit from this training?

The training is intended for any type of creator, designer or cultural worker in Montreal wishing to integrate webcasting into their professional practice.
