Live Streaming: What's the point?
The event industry is constantly evolving and leveraging technology to achieve new heights and meet new needs. This is why we challenged ourselves to find different, improved ways that allow teams, employees, and participants to come together despite social distancing. The Live Streaming launched by Eventdrive is an alternative response to these new challenges. Allowing people to come together virtually, to continue to provide strong experiences.
Settings: Define the visibility of your Live Streaming
Go to LIVE STREAMING > Settings
Here you can define whether your event is public or private.
Public: any person with the link can access the live stream. This link can be communicated via Eventdrive or by your preferred means: internal mailing tools, social networks.
Private: the link to your live stream is private and a participant code is required to access, i.e. a password to access your event.
Now to access the advanced options of your live stream go to LIVE STREAMING - Live stream.
At the bottom of the page, you will see "advanced options".
Just click on it and it will appear.
In these advanced options there are two types of codes: the presenter code and the moderator code.
Presenter code : this code must be given to the presenters of your event. It allows them to access the participant's presentation window.
Moderator code : this code is only visible if your virtual event is private. It must then be communicated to all your guests so that they can access the live event on the day.
We advise you to send a personalized link in the body of your email for your moderator and presenter.
In addition to these codes you will also find a URL for the live event, a phone number for the speakers if there is a last minute problem and finally two boxes that can be checked to :
- Disable moderation permissions for speakers.
- Activate watermarking to avoid the reuse of your live by people outside your organization (to activate this option you can make a request to your CSM)
On the settings page, it is also possible to create a short URL. This is constructed as follows: https://evdr.co/xxxx
You can add the name of your event, for example, or simply its initials with the year.
For example: the event "Inbound Marketing Day 2021" can become https://evdr.co/IMD2021.
You can also add the URL of your Live to your ICS files. ICS files are the "Calendar" type files that allow you to add an event to your calendar. This way, your participants will more easily find the link to your virtual event.
Don't forget to save your changes.
⚠️ We strongly advise you to test your connection via the available option before connecting to live.
Design: Choose your Live window design
This time, go to LIVE STREAMING > Design.
Here you can download the background image and header logo of your choice. These will be visible in your event live window.
If you leave this section blank, the live show will use the default settings you have defined in your website under INVITE > Website > Design.
Recordings : Find the recording of your Live event
Go to LIVE STREAMING > Recordings.
Once your event is over, find all the downloadable recordings in this section. You will be able to download these files in mp4 format in order to reuse them as communication supports or for your next posts on social networks for example!
