If you follow us on our social media platforms, you’ll probably have seen that in the last few weeks we’ve been running a series of livestreams on our YouTube channel, focusing on 'Behind the Scope'.
These livestreams have been running as part of a trial to examine the feasibility and demand for more regular episodes for the community. We’re pleased to report that the response to these livestreams has been exceptional, with a live participation/interaction ranging from 20 - 35 viewers and a subsequent reach (to date) of 740.
The ‘Behind the Scope’ series was always intended as the first step towards showcasing the wide-ranging activities which occur on the VATSIM network.
So… what’s next?
We would like to invite all members that meet the following criteria to apply to contribute their time to producing a livestream event. You will be provided with help and support with the interface and relevant materials.
Members wishing to apply must be:
- S2 rated or higher (for controller-based streams) and/or a P1 rating (for pilot-based streams);
- A UK home member in good standing.
To ensure that the streams are of sufficient technical quality, members wishing to apply should also ensure the following:
- Access to an UPLOAD speed of at least 2500 Kbps (2.5Mbps) - test my speed;
- Hardware capable of streaming 720p at 30FPS.
Even if you’re not sure yet if you would like to be involved with the ‘on-screen’ element or don’t meet the minimum requirements, you may prefer to be involved in the ‘off screen’ planning of a livestream series.
If you meet these requirements and/or feel that you can bring some new ideas to the table, we would love to hear from you! Contact us
