What platforms are you using to produce virtual events and what different kinds of events are you doing?

  • Hey  Jeff Sturgis !   Great question, thanks for posting.

    Considering our new Studio tool can stream into pretty much any virtual event solution, we're very interested to hear from everyone on which platform(s) are your go-to's.

    If we were to integrate with a virtual event platform, which would you love to see?

  • For internal events its a mix of MediaPlatform, MS Teams and Sharepoint. Client facing we use Hubb with Brightcove and MS Teams for broadcasts or collaborations and VOD. Events range from internal facing town halls (15,000+) and corporate meetings to our 15,000+ client user conference.

  • Hey Brian Mauger   This is kind of what my question is intended to inform.  I'm trying to learn from the community to find what works well and doesn't work well.

  • Here's a video of what one our proprietary virtual communities look like: https://vimeo.com/505865866 - they're intended to be more 24/7/365 content and networking vs. a "virtual event".

    I vetted probably 25 different platforms, all had their own unique benefits (or, more often, downsides). We used BigMarker to produce/record/stream sessions for quite awhile, and we still do for some of our content, but I ended up running into some nasty issues when I needed to make edits. 99% of the content I produce now is pre-recorded vs live, and for that I've returned to trusty old Zoom. The recording quality is better than Teams, GTM, etc and you can optimize for third party video editor, you can also record individual audio streams from each participant which has been a lifesaver more than once. Not to mention presenters feel comfortable with Zoom and know how to at least solve some basic problems on their own. Switching over to Zoom has saved me countless hours I was spending trying to make the other platforms work. If we did more live streaming I would 100% use ShoFlo Studio, I really think it's a fantastic product.

  • Little biased here, but I went to work for Pathable after I was a client.    We can integrate any streaming CDN per meeting and have existing integrated Zoom architecture if clients don't want to spend the $$ on AV support.  1:1 meetings, tradeshow booths, exhibitor pages, gamification, etc.  We have it.
