Optimizing your internal communications strategy: How to boost employee engagement through live video

Optimizing your internal communications strategy is a crucial to-do for any HR or corporate communications team. According to the Dale Carnegie Institute, because 71% of employees are not fully engaged with their company’s mission or goals, increasing engagement is a critical focus for many internal communications professionals. Organizations with engaged employees report 31% higher productivity and 37% higher sales, according to the Harvard Business Review. But how can you establish those strong lines of communication, especially as more companies employ a global workforce?

We spoke with Audrey Plaskacz, Global Director of Internal Communications & Engagement at lululemon, to learn how one of the biggest retail and lifestyle brands in the world scaled their live video internal communications strategy to include all company-wide, speaker series, and leadership meetings. “Connection is one of our core values, so it was important for us to embody that in these meetings,” said Audrey. “There’s no primary audience or secondary audience — there’s one, and we’re all there together.”

What’s new in Studio 6 live streaming software

Make your colors POP.

Color correction lets you dial in your settings and apply them across multiple cameras. Adjust your camera’s color settings to get the best quality possible, and unify the look for multi-camera productions, by dialing in the RGB, brightness, saturation, contrast, and more.

Mix sound on the fly.

Edit sound on the fly with a range of filters on our audio mixer. Live streamers will have access to an equalizer, limiter, compressor, and more, all easily accessible right inside Studio 6.

Transition seamlessly.

Bump up your production value with dip-to-color fades and slick stinger animations. In addition to the SMPTE transitions currently available in Studio 5, Studio 6 users can use these new transitions to make stream-switching seem more natural than ever.

  • Stinger: Stinger transitions allow switching from one video source to another through short and effective video animation.
  • Dip-to-Color: Dip-to-Color transition allows switching from one video source to another through gradual fade into a specific color, and fade out of it to a new source.

Integrate with Mevo.

Full Mevo integration lets you operate one or multiple Mevos directly from the Studio platform. Almost anything that is possible from the Mevo mobile app, you can now do from Studio — live editing, changing resolution, frame rate, speaker volume, and much more. Studio is the only software that allows you to control and switch between multiple Mevos, making your multi-camera productions easier than ever.

Simplify your workflow.

Updated input settings make it even more intuitive to get Studio up and running for your next event. Users can now drag and drop inputs, add or remove inputs on the fly, customize input details, and organize your input list. Managing a multi-camera setup has never been so easy.
