We are a university and we use Vimeo Live for three primary purposes. One is to expand our events to other venues on campus. With no space large enough on campus to host our larger events we often have overflow sites and we stream to these sites enabling us to involve more of the community. We also have an engaged alumni community and Vimeo Live allows us to keep them connected to the campus. Our largest streaming event is our commencement, with students and families from around the world Vimeo Live includes the extended family without requiring travel. Our entire organization has access to use the service and so it sees a variety of uses from studio art demonstrations, lectures, and panel speaking events.
- We use the hardware based Broadcaster which makes for very easy set up. It is so easy we can loan the equipment to smaller events that do not require our on site technical assistance.
- Ease of integration and embedding in our Facebook page and website give our followers many options to join the stream.
- Real time statistics on viewership and chat provide up to the minute understanding of our viewers needs and issues should they arise.
- The editing features are very basic for an archived event, work for us most of the time but can be clunky.

Perfect for the "one to many" steaming scenarios. We sometimes struggle with choosing the right platform when we may need two way communication and establishing if the chat feature is sufficient or if we need to move to a true web conferencing platform. We love the simplicity of the one way stream and really try to make the presenting department justify any move to two way communication. We are so confident in Vimeo Live because we have all the control, if we go to any platform that relies on the far end having equipment of technical expertise the chances of a successful event diminish greatly.
