Is a digital or hybrid event the same as watching a video on YouTube?
There are two big differences between the videos you watch on the internet and the live digital events you can watch remotely. One is that streaming videos (such as those of kittens, to be clear) are designed to download portions of footage in advance (buffering), offsetting network instability during playback. The other is that you will never send a complaint to IT support because the YouTube video you’re watching took a few seconds too long to upload.
Live digital events, on the other hand, are based on data packets sent and received constantly in real time, to ensure that everything is transmitted clearly and that every intonation, gesture or word is transferred correctly.
Technological choices are especially important and can condition and enhance some aspects of the meeting, but they can also be the source of trouble: if it goes wrong this adversely condition an event. Careful planning and the choice of appropriate systems and services is essential.
Live events are irreplaceable: networking, emotional presence and physical contact cannot be replaced by modern technologies. But the hybrid event enables you to reach people who would not otherwise have participated by giving them the maximum possible experience through the solutions offered by technology and good meeting design.
“Expert interventions”: creation of an appointment on a defined topic, in which one or more opinion leaders present data and answer users’ questions “Talk Show”: Production of a studio living room setting in which topics are discussed by experts in their fields. “Training courses”: Reproduction of a residential meeting in digital format It is possible to create web sessions with speakers able to transmit their presentations from home. Our software will allow the acquisition of the material in a simple way and in complete autonomy. However, our IT staff will always be present to support the presenters whilst carrying out direction of both remote and onsite contents.
There are two ways of to implement and control on-demand content:– Access code: Creation of a group of unique access codes to distribute to participants so that content can be restricted and controlled.– Pay per View: Offers the possibility to manage viewers payment directly thus controlling access to content.
The interactivity of the product is guaranteed by two modes: – Web messaging: During the live broadcast, participants can send questions or comments to speakers who can air them and possibly discuss them. – Survey: access to a satisfaction or evaluation questionnaire. At the end of the live broadcast the contents can be made available on demand, with the possibility of creating online learning courses.
We have also thought of giving maximum visibility to those who support events through the creation of an area dedicated to sponsors. In fact, it will be possible to access a dedicated menu with the list of companies and a description of their business. The visitor will be able to download promotional material, access data collection forms and even access 3D virtual models where the participant can attain an experience very similar to the one attained on site. In fact, you can visit a stand reconstructed in detail,” stop and talk” with the Company through chat or instant message systems, browse brochures and receive “virtual gadgets.”
Virtual poster areas can be added to company web pages or an event specific web site can be created to host the posters among other services such as online registration speaker BIO’s, meeting agenda and sponsor areas. An audio file can be added with a voice over presentation for each poster recorded by the poster creator.
