Press Release:
Engle-Shook Funeral Home provides live weather cam on their website.

Eric Shook, owner of Engle-Shook Funeral Homes in Tiffin, Ohio had a unique way of introducing the Tiffin community to his funeral webcasting system installed by NationalWebcasts.com. Mr. Shook inquired about utilizing the webcast system for the good of the community during the hours that it is not being used for live funerals and worked with NationalWebcasts.com to create a live weather cam for his funeral home's web page. In addition to providing a real time view of downtown Tiffin, the funeral home's website now gives the local weather & current temperature for Tiffin and can also provide a weather report for any US city with the entry of your zip code. Eric's website and live weather cam can be found by following this link. www.engleshookfuneralhome.com

For a growing number of reasons, live webcasting is a service that more and more businesses such as funeral homes and churches, are adding to their offerings. With an aging population, more and more elderly family members are homebound, restricted to nursing facilities or are simply not able to travel due to tight economic conditions.

Offering webcasting is a way to include everyone, regardless of their geographic location. With our service, no special equipment or software is needed by the viewer, just a computer and a high speed internet connection. While the elderly are a large part of our target webcast market, there are plenty more reasons for businesses to webcast. Those reasons may include, but are not limited to, work and military obligations, incarcerations, travel restrictions, etc. A live webcast is the next best thing to being there!

Marketing Exposure

As you can see the demand for live webcasting is real. There are more families online now than ever before. Those families stay connected all over the world through the internet. For funeral homes, including webcasting is the next logical step to remain ahead of your competition by offering the services your families are going to demand.

What is Required?

To webcast a live event, you will need the following items:

* Video Camera
* Computer, (Desktop or Laptop)
* High Speed Internet Connection
* Video Capture Card or Device
* Webcasting Encoder Software
* Streaming Video / Hosting Package
* Customized Web Page To View Broadcast


Where do you watch the live webcasts?

Regardless of who your current web site designer is or which company hosts your web site, adding a webcast link is simple and straight forward. Simply paste the HTML code into the section of your website you would like to link from and a button link will appear directing guests to a custom page we create for your broadcasts. The broadcasts can be password protected for family privacy purposes. Broadcasts can be archived and uploaded after the live broadcast and made available for on demand viewing for up to 90 days.
