North Dallas Funeral Home Offers Live Webcasts of Services

October 8, 2008

The live webcasts provide friends and family who are unable to attend the service an opportunity to say their final farewell to their loved one.

Dallas, TX (PRnine – October 8, 2008) – Friends and family can be kept from attending a loved one’s service for a variety of reasons beyond their control.  The current economic downturn and rising travel costs unfortunately adds to this list of reasons, which traditionally consisted of health conditions or difficulty in securing travel arrangements.  Because of this, Brooks’ Family Funeral Homes’ live webcasts of services held in its Dallas location are increasingly utilized by patrons.

Out of respect for their families, the Brooks Family keeps its livestream service a private affair viewable only by invitees, who are sent a password protected link to the webcast.  Using the latest technology, five cameras placed at different angles along with a live audio feed, provide family or friends with an immersive experience.  To ensure the quality of the webcasts, the Brooks Family maintains its own private internet server so the livestream will not compete with other internet traffic.

The webcast service has helped many of the Brooks Family’s patrons in their grieving process by allowing friends and relatives who could not otherwise attend with a means of partaking in their loved one’s last rites.  Following the services, families have written to the Brooks’ Family expressing their appreciation for the streaming service, which allowed them to accommodate friends and family members living far away, and for the Brooks’ Family compassionate handling of a deeply personal matter.

The Brooks Family has been serving families in the Dallas and Fort Worth area for over 35 years. The funeral home is at the forefront of using the internet to better serve its families, as evidenced by its livestreaming service and its online cremation service.  More information about the Brooks Family at North Dallas Funeral Home may be found online at, or by contacting the Brooks Family at 1(972) 241-9100.
