Webcasting

What is it?

Put simply, Webcasting is broadcasting an event via the internet. When looking to broadcast your online events, webcasting provides a perfect solution. Whether you are looking to present your content to a larger audience or provide event access to those less accessible, streaming your event via a private secure network or public platforms such as YouTube or Facebook is a great way to broaden the scope of your event.

Benefits of using Webcasting:

  1. Reaching a wider audience, geographical and travel restrictions are not a problem with this virtual solution as streaming your event on the internet makes it accessible for audiences all over the world.
  2. Creating content urgency, with Webcasting streaming live content is only for a limited time therefore you can create excitement around your event before streaming as users will feel the need to access the content urgently with the knowledge that time is limited.
  3. Accessibility and convenience, Webcasting allows delegates and/or your audience to access the event from anywhere which alleviates the stress of having to find a space to tune in.

When may I want to use this?

Webcasting offers an effective solution when:

  • Delegate demand outweighs venue capacity.
  • You require a more intimate event setting, however you still need to reach a large audience.
  • Delegates are unable to travel to an event or you’re looking to reduce the environmental impact and costs associated with typical event attendance.

When might Webcasting be the most effective option for you to utilise:

  • Launching a product, results or policy from your company site.
  • Sending out plenary sessions into breakout rooms to allow for overflow capacity.
  • Hosting a ‘fireside’ chat with a new CEO to reach the whole company.

Virtual conferencing

Video Conferencing

What is it?

Video conferencing does exactly what is says on the tin, it is a technology that will allow users in a wide range of locations to hold face-to-face meetings without actually having to be in the same location. This is an effective way of employing presenters and speakers at your event where two-way communication is required but not physically feasible. This also allows your presenter and/or speaker to appear on screen with a view of your host and/or delegates, digitally facilitating their participation and inclusion in your event programme.

When may I want to use this?

This technology can be applied when your event host or speaker is unable to physically attend your event.

The advantages of using video conferencing include:

  1. Supporting the digital workforce, this technology can help to create a more co-operative meeting ethos within your organisation as it allows teams to sustain human connections and productivity despite not actually being in the same physical location. During a time when meeting face-to-face has been restricted this virtual solution can improve decision making and maintain relationships between staff.
  2. You can simplify usability; your delegates need to be able access your content and by choosing one platform to host your event this reduces problems with usability and troubleshooting difficulties.
  3. Fast and secure communication, a video conference is a quick and safe way for delegates to communicate and discuss your virtual event.

Examples of when you may wish to utilise a video conference include:

  • A speaker giving a plenary lecture after restrictions impacted travel and consequential event attendance.
  • A politician giving an after-dinner speech after being recalled for an evening vote in parliament.
  • A company founder participating in a live Q&A session while business commitments restrict travel.

Eclipse HUB

 

Hub Conferencing

What is it?

Essentially this is a hybrid of the above mentioned formats. Hub Conferencing provides an effective solution when multiple audiences need to be brought together. The format enables presenters and speakers to deliver from any site, all while delegates engage with one another. This structure is often utilised when delegates are unable or willing to travel, as it eliminates the need to employ just one dedicated event venue.

When may I want to use this?

Retaining all the benefits of Webcasting and Video Conferencing, Hub Conferencing maintains the facilitation of face-to-face networking like any physical event.

Examples of when you may wish to utilise Hub Conferencing include:

  • Delivering a company-wide kick-off meeting where employees attend their own sites to eliminate the need for travel and accommodation.
  • Hosting an academic conference with speakers presenting from their domestic institutions to an international audience, with the elimination of travel and accommodation supporting delegate participation.
