Member Conference Call: Choosing the Best Equipment for Facebook Live Broadcasts

By Dan Hinmon, MCSMN Director

Join us for a premium member conference call on Wednesday, March 15, at 2 p.m. CDT.

Rachel Caldwell Mullins, digital communications manager at University of Kansas Medical Center, posted the following question in our discussion forum recently:

Shawn Bishop

I've seen some broadcasts where it's nearly impossible to hear the speakers or it just seems like the equipment used wasn't adequate. I know the concept is that it's live and the quality doesn't have to be perfect, but I'd like to give our audience the best experience possible. I also know some organizations use more advanced equipment. What equipment do you recommend and/or use?

We've invited two members of Mayo Clinic's Social and Digital Innovations team to share insights about the equipment they use for Facebook Live broadcasts. Shawn Bishop is a tech-centric communications specialist on the Rochester campus, and Taryn Offenbacher is communications specialist on our Arizona campus.

Taryn Offenbacher

They'll take the first few minutes to explain her approach, then we’ll open the call to Q&As, other ideas, and brainstorming.

What equipment do you use for Facebook Live broadcasts? Join the call to share your experience.

The call is open only to premium MCSMN members. Sign up to receive call-in information and reminders.

If you're not yet a premium member, see your upgrade options.

Sorry you’re stuck, @jessedean. I’m not sure why this is happening. I’ve confirmed that your premium member status is correct, and others have been signing up this morning successfully. I’ll give yoiu a call to sort this out.
