Is Live Streaming The Future Of Funeral Services?
Today's communication technology is quite advanced, and people use it for various purposes. Professionals work from home while students take lessons online. We contact relatives and friends spread across the globe, bringing them closer to us over the miles.
While the COVID-19 epidemic has caused chaos worldwide, it has also demonstrated how contemporary communication methods, including live-streaming, can be beneficial in different situations, including burial ceremonies. George Darte Funeral Chapel, Inc. now offers the use of this technology to enable people from anywhere in the world to attend their loved one's funerals.
Why Would You Stream A Funeral Service Live?
Because of the epidemic, lockdowns have been imposed across the country, restricting mobility to essential purchases and emergencies. Additionally, this means that individuals could not attend their loved ones' funerals, which had a profound effect on them.
It's where live streaming technology comes into play. While it will never be a perfect substitute for being personally present at the service, it is acceptable when no other choice exists. Among the advantages of this technique are the following:
- Families are sometimes forced to postpone services until all immediate family members arrive, which is no longer required when you live-stream a funeral. Many people now choose to avoid traveling during these periods, making live streaming the best option.
- People from all around the world can attend the funeral. This was not feasible previously, and family and friends had to frequently cancel attending funerals due to their inability to drive or fly vast distances.
- It's cost-effective because you can save funeral expenditures by opting for a modest and inexpensive ceremony. Many people prefer not to spend excessive amounts during this time and live-streaming is a good option for them.
