Livestream Rates & Platform
I have a client who wants a symposium live streamed. Five rooms simultaneously. I would be hired to run the stream. Camera and audio crew provided. Of course, there may be tech conflicts or issues, but assuming all the tech works out (cameras and audio all work fine and get feed to my switcher)...
1. WHAT PLATFORM TO USE?
Ideally they want all five streams running simultaneously. And the view could pick which "room" to enter and what. I am thinking maybe Zoom or Crowdcast as they have "breakout" rooms. But not sure how to get separate camera streams into each room.
The other option is to have five seperate streams but that would be a bitch to manage. There must be some platform out there that allows five cameras to broadcast to five virtual rooms? Yes?
2. WHAT SHOULD I CHARGE?
This is a three day event. I would likely get there a day early to set up and test. I would be providing the streaming equipment (switcher, software and probably an assortment of cables, wireless devices and the like).
Anybody have an idea of the going rate for something like this?
It's not clear if there's a location with five physical rooms or is this all "virtual" (presenters are in their own homes).

I don't see how you avoid it unless you're only streaming one "room." All must be available if the viewer is to chose.
I don't think Zoom streams breakout rooms separately and if you have to do it you may need to screen capture each simultaneously which is still five streams.
