Perhaps no job better exemplifies the global reach of webcasting than our recent event with UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund.
On Wednesday, September 26, 2018, during the United Nations General Assembly week, Total Webcasting was present at UNICEF’s office in New York City (adjacent to the United Nations headquarters) to webcast their high level meeting on Action for Refugee Education.
Viewers tuned in to the live webcast from nearly 200 different cities across the globe, including locations on every continent except Antarctica. To date, the video has been viewed in over 500 cities on thousands of devices, from places as disparate as Al Hudaydah, Yemen, to Jagodina, Serbia, to Reykjavik, Iceland. It is pretty amazing to consider that our webcast was being viewed by people in Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia, and both North and South America—all at the same time.
According to their website, UNICEF “works in 190 countries and territories to save children’s lives, to defend their rights, and to help them fulfil their potential, from early childhood through adolescence.” Given the organization’s global mission, their expansive audience is unsurprising, and Total Webcasting is proud to have helped them deliver their message.
