Winter Resorts Use Live HD Cameras to Extend Ski Season
Good news for those of you preparing to mourn the 2016 ski season: Live HD camera streaming can actually leverage spring snow and extend peak resort stays throughout Spring.
For mountain resorts this means booking more stays for a larger part of the year. For ski and snowboarding enthusiasts who want to view real time conditions and travel on a whim, 24/7 live streams are a snowy dream. Win, WIN.
Check out the following three ways HD Relay empowers resorts to reach on-the-go millennials and keep them coming by using enticing snow cam visuals.
Mobile Streaming: HD Relay’s live video feeds, time lapses and panoramic captures are all fully streamable and/or shareable in HD on mobile devices. Our resorts distribute live footage and pre recorded clips easily via email, text or social media. We provide network cameras and fast, secure streaming via our network so yours doesn’t get bogged down.
Facebook Unlimited: When live conditions become simply irresistible, resorts can use Facebook features to quickly spread the message. In the initial test run for this feature, we found that a simple daily surf report video, taken from recorded live streams and posted to our Facebook page, had a major impact. We saw a 239% increase to page likes and a notable increase in post engagement (6,711 clicks, likes, comments or shares in just under two months).
There are multiple ways to use Facebook Unlimited. Create a 24/7 viewable live stream page on your company profile, post messages with pre recorded clips, share several seconds of live video with a link to view more on your website…the list goes on.
IC|HD™ Fast Forward Playback and IC|HD™ 7 Day Instant Rewind: These two features make it easy to share cool, quick videos with busy viewers. See FFP “timelapse-like” footage in action below by clicking play.
These are some of the many ways audiences are being reached using network cameras and live streaming. HD Relay has been serving the winter resort community for over 18 years, and we love figuring out new ways to help them reach more people with breathtaking visuals of their spectacular destinations.
