The Digital Performance Archive, developed by Nottingham Trent University and the University of Salford, is a fantastic resource that describes many performance that have used digital technology over the past decade:

Webcasting is the last stage, but the aesthetics of the monitor are different from the screen and therefore shooting and editing is different.

Beginner Article: "What To Look For in a Streaming Media Host"
You may have great audio-video, but if your audience can't see it, the quality of your content doesn't really matter. Since most webmasters rely on a specialist to host their streaming media, they must be sure the host is knowledgeable, experienced and reliable. Here's a quick checklist of what to look for when shopping around for a streaming media host:
Customer Support: This is particularly important if you're doing a live Webcast. You want to test the connection an hour prior to the event. You also may want a representative from the host to be on site to handle any problems. You should be sure the company offers on-site support and equipment, including lighting, camera, and computer for on-site encoding.
Audience Tracking: Once you have streamed your content, whether a live event or an on-demand file- you want to know who viewed it. Expect your host to offer event monitoring and reporting, including detailed audience statistics. From where did viewers access their content? At what time? Were they tuned in until the end? This information is enormously valuable as you plan future streaming media ventures. It also lets you gauge the hot spots on your Website. Stats tell you which video clips are most popular. And you'll know when it's time to replace or add new clips because you'll see when a clip's popularity declines.
Reliability: Consistency and reliability is crucial. You don't want your live feed going down half way through your event, and you need to have your on-demand files accessible at all times. Hosts open for less than one year may experience more frequent outages and may not have the experienced staff in-house to get your site up and running again quickly. Check which fiber-optic carriers the host has agreements with. Are there redundant lines, so if one goes down they can quickly switch to another?
Tech Support: Insist on tech support. It may be difficult to get some companies on the phone, but a few established companies offer 24/7 tech support.
Quotable: "About one-third of the 1,000 largest companies in the U.S. are using streaming Web-based media significantly, and half of them will be by 2003." --Market Analyst Gartner, Inc.
