It allows asynchronous viewing of events, delivers content to any location with an internet connection and can broadcast to hundreds of locations simultaneously. Live web casting is a broadcast application whereas on-demand is for asynchronous events.
Streaming protects your content because it is only played back to the user's machine and not downloaded onto it. You can control who watches what, how, where and when. Unlike a download when the content is delivered permanently, cached in the end user's browser's temporary files and can then be redistributed.

The number of websites online is not going to decrease. It is already extremely difficult for the average website to attract consistent traffic. Streaming video builds credibility for your website, and generates more customers than traditional paid advertising because streaming video can serve as a third party referral for your products and services.
Google paid $1.65 billion dollars for YouTube for a reason. Video attracts more people to websites than text. Text can be dressed up with bolding, underlining, font changes and splashes of color, but will never have the impact that audio and video inspire.
The Lure of Streaming Video:
- Inspires curiosity and grabs viewers attention
- Broadcast live events
- Backlinks to your products and services
- Website can be found through video search portals
- Broadcast Information specific to your industry and demonstrate your company's expertise in the industry.
