New video solutions in Eventory
We have seen enormous growth in online meeting and event solutions. Nobody doubts the importance of Zoom, MS Teams, Skype in today’s business. Numerous team meetings, conferences, company gatherings are organized with these platforms. Eventory goes one step further making it even smoother and faster to set up an online event.
To the wide offer of features included in the Eventory platform, we have just added some exciting video solutions that give the organizers even more flexibility and independence when it comes to hosting events and meetings. From now on you don’t even need any external solutions to e.g. host a webinar with Eventory. Within a few clicks you open the presenter window and have all necessary features in one place.
Online events now
In order to create a successful online event you need great content, speakers, the right audience and a virtual venue. Instead of a conference room, we use online platforms such as Zoom, Webex or a professional studio (offline). The chosen form depends on the concept of the event and its size. For bigger events with several speakers, it might be a better idea to hire a professional studio that will take care of all technical aspects and impressive visuals. However, for regular events that don’t require “special visual effects” organizers usually decide to go with one of the popular online meeting and webinar platforms.
For better attendee experience and event analytics, organizers choose Eventory to provide participants with more than just a video streaming and properly measure the event. They host their events on Eventory using our integrated solutions being completely independent from any extra tools.
BTW, as you are organizing a virtual event you may want to check this online meeting etiquette and communicate it to the participants in order to ensure the smooth flow of the meeting.
