Once considered morbid, funeral webcasts are gaining popularity worldwide in our high-tech and transient society. Secure your place as a full-service funeral professional by offering an outstanding and much-appreciated solution.


Predicted by Fox News as one of the top tech trends in 2012, funeral webcasting is a service that more funeral homes are embracing to serve the needs of client families. Available for more than a decade in the funeral profession and almost 20 years in other industries, webcasting is progressively being incorporated into service offerings due to easy-to-use funeral software options. There are other factors as well, including a more dispersed and mobile society and aging Baby Boomers who will soon be passing away in large numbers. As younger generations continue to integrate technology into all aspects of life, funeral webcasting appears to be an essential service for funeral professionals to offer.


For the many reasons that may prevent one from physically attending a funeral of a friend or loved one, funeral webcasting could not be more convenient. Likewise for the funeral professional who offers this service. With software, a computer, a camera, and tripod, funeral services can be broadcast globally to anyone with a high-speed connection, which these days is practically everyone. Cameras placed strategically to capture the view that physical attendees have, the far-away friend or relative can share in the service in real time, or later due to delayed streaming capabilities.


Other software features — such as the ability to edit the beginning and end of the funeral webcast — serve to create an elegant, tasteful experience that is invaluable to those who can’t be there in person. With the option of adding titles and descriptions to the webcast, funeral professionals can offer a very important and needed technology tool to client families.


Funeral software comes with full technical support. No matter where or what time the service is being held, technical support is available at all times. Security is of high importance; with a password-protected site, you confidently assure your client families that their webcasts will not end up on public video sites.


Not only convenient, funeral webcasting is affordable and doesn’t require long-term contracts, additional equipment to purchase, or retaining fees. And since the services are taped, they can be combined with a Tribute Video resulting in an enduring remembrance keepsake for loved ones.


Perhaps you already offer funeral webcasting services. Or maybe you’ve been asked about it by client families. In order to provide unrivaled service, funeral software for webcasting and Tribute Videos is the best bet for the future of your business.
