Via LiveUitvaart.nl, Company Webcast provides the RoyalCast webcast platform that Crematorium Hofwijk uses independently to broadcast all its funeral services.
Crematorium Hofwijk was looking for supplementary services which, among other things, would enable people to follow a funeral service remotely. The crematorium was well aware that people find it important to pay their respects as a final goodbye. A webcast gives people the opportunity to do so, even if they are unable to attend the funeral service in person.
Company Webcast has been providing the RoyalCast self-service webcast platform for the crematorium since mid-2010. That solution enables Crematorium Hofwijk to broadcast an unlimited number of webcasts based on a licence. Since then, Hofwijk has successfully broadcast more than 10,000 funeral services.
The use of the RoyalCast platform has been a success for the crematorium, and countless family members and friends have expressed their appreciation of the service. More than 65% of all family and friends utilise the opportunity to watch the funeral service online, live and/or on demand. The advantage of the RoyalCast self-service webcasting solution is that Crematorium Hofwijk is now capable of organising webcasts entirely independently.
