Exhibitors Module, Ticket List Trigger & Permission Indicator

Hello and welcome! We’re back again with great news for your live events and virtual events. You now have new strategies to implement for your upcoming events. Pin them down and get ready to explore. It’s time to take a deep dive into the solutions; shall we?


Exhibitors Module

You can now promote your brand and your partners with a premium event management technology—the Exhibitors Module. If you’ve set up booths for your sponsors for previous events held on the platform, you already have an idea of how the Exhibitors Module works. Just like the Sponsors Booth, Exhibitors Module has its designated location in the Virtual Lobby.

You can have a dedicated Exhibitor page, Exhibitor Virtual Lobby section and menu, Exhibitor Website Section, and an Exhibitor Profile Page on My Account; If you’re using the mobile App, the Exhibitors will show alongside Sponsors.


Ticket List Trigger

 

This Ticket List Trigger allows you to categorize users that purchased multiple tickets, associated with multiple lists. Of course, this occurs only when users own these tickets. They would be removed from the list if they’ve given away their tickets. You can as well sell tickets per activity, which is a great way to expand your monetization gateway. With the Ticket List Trigger, you can create tickets, assign them to lists that are linked with certain activities, and enable this new option — users will now be able to buy tickets for all the sessions, not just for a single event.


Permission Indicator Tool


It is important for attendees to easily differentiate themselves; especially if they need to direct complaints or questions to the organizers of the events. The Permission Indicator Tool performs the task of identifying the speakers, sponsors, or admins in the platform, using icons and written indicators.

Are you excited to test these features? We can wait to see how you use these solutions for your forthcoming events. We are rooting for a successful event experience! Hope you’ve learned enough strategies to implement for your events throughout the year. Be on the lookout! We’ll be flooding this page with more features soon. Ensure you use these features and share a comment on your below. Enjoy the rest of your week!

Activity Settings, Add On-demand Chapters to Videos & Live Studio Status Bar

Hey there! We’ve launched some cool features for your live events, virtual events and webinars, and we’re happy to share them with you. Get ready to take notes because these event strategies will transform your next event. Check them out!


General Settings and Tab Visibility 

You can easily ascertain the categories that your event agenda tools fall under. By categorizing the general settings and Tab visibility into sections, you know the best ways to customize your streaming experience. The General Settings include all the features that are enable the functionality of every activity and the Tab Visibility highlights all the tools that can be displayed on the session menu. By checking any of the tools beneath this section, you activate it. This is a great way to keep you organized and well-informed on the tools needed for your streams.


Live Studio Streaming Status Bar

Every meeting or event host needs a status bar that provides information regarding their live stream and social stream status. It’s a good way to easily identify technical issues, if any, and address them immediately, instead of discovering them after the end of the stream. We want to help you avert issues that could interrupt your sessions, increase your traffic churn rate, and weaken the quality of your production. Hence the purpose of the Status Bar! Also be on the lookout, as this is the first version, we will add more status information in the future. We’re open to your suggestions! If you have any, please comment down below.


Insert Chapters to Your On-demand Videos

Imagine giving your video content that episodic effect that takes your viewers through a journey, as though you were telling a story; it’s a value add to your attendees’ streaming experience. We know that you need your attendees to always show up for all the events you have throughout the year, and that’s why we are committed to delivering new solutions that create this result for you. The chapters you create, appear on the progress bar and also in a button on the video player. This is a great way to insert breaks so that attendees don’t experience fatigue during long-lasting sessions. The best part is that It’s available on all plans!

Did you enjoy reading about our latest technologies? Stay tuned! We’ll be releasing more features soon. But for now, try out these solutions and let us know what your experience was like. Enjoy the rest of your week!





Virtual Lobby Neo Dark Mode, Notification Center & Authorize.Net Payment Integration

You must be always updated on our latest technologies for your live events and webinars. We commend your zeal to host many more successful events using our technology and welcome you to another edition of our product release announcements. Here, you can discover more technologies to leverage. With that stated, we’ve got some exciting news to share with you today! Let’s explore them.


Virtual Lobby Neo Dark Mode

One of the ways to enhance your attendees’ experience at your events is to allow them the stream your content in line with their preference. Colors affect the people feel and relate to things around them; to some, certain colors are relaxing and put them in the best position to interpret information. We know that switching your streaming environment from light to dark and vice versa, can give this appeal. There’s a new switch in the Virtual Lobby that allows you to choose between Normal and Dark Modes. With the ability to enable the Dark Mode variation for the Neo Layout on Virtual Lobby, attendees who prefer to stream in a darker mode would enjoy their streaming experience better. Stay tuned for more updates because we will be releasing the Light Mode soon!


Notification Center Now Available on Virtual Lobby

We know that being on top of your event management process as an event planner is key. Part of this requires a consistent communication process and staying abreast with your attendee information, budgeting, flight management, and accommodation, amongst other necessities. Typically, you’ll be busy 24/7 and that’s why you need a system that will communicate important information with precision. The Notification Center has been created to update you on all your event management workflow. We also decided to compact the Language Selector into a smaller menu right next to the notification center, so you can customize the notifications to be relayed in your native language


Explore the Authorize.net Payment Gateway!

Live Events are back to normal and what a great to hope on the trend with a strategized cash inflow system. Monetizing your events just got easier with a click. With the Autorize.Net payment integration gateway, you can synchronize with your credit card just like Stripe. You can keep track of all your ticket sales, as payments from Authorize.Net will be flagged accordingly on the Payments dashboard.

That’s all the updates for today. Don’t hesitate to try out these solutions for your events and stay tuned for more updates coming soon!


Email Builder, Sponsors Profile, Menu Re-organization, and Captions on Pre-recorded Videos

You’re welcome to another edition of our product release announcements. We have exciting news to share with your today! These solutions were generated to offer you and your attendees premium event experiences. So dive into this post to see what they are about.


Drag & Drop on Email Builder

You can now attach your sponsors’ logo icons to any email you want to be delivered to your attendees. As the name suggests, all you need to do is to drag and drop the section containing all your sponsors, to appear where you want them placed. And with that, you can promote your sponsors and give them more visibility. This is important because sponsors always want to connect with their target audience and promote their offerings to them. 

Attaching your sponsor logo to the email makes attendees anticipate meeting your sponsors at the event. If you have heavyweight sponsors, you don't want to undermine the value that this strategy has on your website traffic. You can locate the sponsors section underneath the Media menu. Then you can check the boxes of sponsors you want to appear on the email.


Display Sponsors in the Virtual Lobby for Meetings

Promoting your sponsors just got even better! Every session sponsored by a company can have the identity of its representatives displayed at the bottom of the stream. This personable display enables attendees to attach a human identity to your sponsors and encourages human-to-human interactions. 

Because you need attendees to interact with your sponsors, we thought it best to enable the option to insert images and profiles of the sponsor representatives to your sessions. This way, attendees can easily schedule meetings with them in the virtual lobby

However, you should know that the names and company designation can only be displayed if you have 1-2 representatives. If you have up to 4 people listed, you can only change the “Representatives” label on Headings. To make this feature operational, ensure that you have all of the information on your sponsors contained in the People section.


Menu Reorganization for Mobile and Classic Virtual Lobbies

As an event manager, being organized is a priority. You don’t want your workspace looking messy, and you certainly do not want your attendees to have an even messier experience navigating through your video streaming platform. 

There are many tools you need to utilize during live sessions but they can’t all be on full display. What we've built for you is the solution to group other tools into the ‘More’ section on the menu bar. Now when you have a lot of menus, some of them will be automatically added to the “More” section like regular mobile apps.


Upload Captions & Subtitles on Pre-recorded Videos

This is a great way to scale up accessibility. Attendees who prefer to read your content or stream in their native language can enjoy their streaming experience better with this inclusion. You can enable this option to pre-recorded videos and simulated lives, as well as upload as many captions as you want—one for each language. Once uploaded, a CC button will show up in the video player with the option to select the caption you want. Select the caption of your choice and GO LIVE.

That’s it for today! I hope you had a good read, and more importantly, eager to try out these features for all your events throughout the year. Stay tuned for more updates. There’s fresh news coming soon!






InEvent Live Quiz, Stream to Tik Tok and Troubleshoot List Page for Event Planners

 Hello and welcome to another edition of InEvent News. We’re back again with new features so you can hop on them immediately and create sensation streams with them! Let’s get into this post. Shall we?


Introducing, Live quiz!

We have just released the Live Quiz feature, so you can scale up your engagement and encourage active participation. Create quizzes with multiple questions with multiple options with explanations for the correct option. To make the activity even more interesting, you can fix a timer for attendees from answering questions when the time runs out. Keep attendees on the edge of their seats, like they're writing a timed SAT. The Quiz feature is automatically enabled with the poll feature, so you don’t need to bother setting it up in the Settings or Event. If you want to have a quiz for each activity, you must enable it manually. Afterward, forthcoming quizzes will be enabled by default.


Tik Tok is now available for social streaming!

Tik Tok says the clock. It’s Tik Tok time! We’re pleased to announce that TikTok is now supported on the InEvent for third-party streaming. This is great for your broadcasting your content to a whole new audience so you can generate leads and explore more opportunities. So get those dance moves and skits rolling in because we’re transforming those boring streams into relishable moments.

Access the troubleshoot reports!

As announced in the previous post, the troubleshoot button is now available for you to resolve technical issues. As an event planner, this is important for you because problems are inevitable in the event planning process but we've designed the technology to help tackle them and track them. By tracking, we mean you view and manage all your troubleshooting reports. How do you make this happen? The Virtual Lobby settings page now has the “Troubleshoot” tab, so be rest assured that all reports will be stored there excluding old reports prior to this update. Henceforth, new reports will not show up in #issue-report anymore and will not trigger an Intercom action if sent from Company Admins. Take note of this and explore this tool!


That is all for today! I hope you're nailing all your event and webinar goals with our video strategies! We're rooting for your success. Stay tuned for more updates. There'll be fresh news coming soon.



Boost Your Engagement with Live Reactions, Custom Video Layouts and Real-time Replies

Hello and welcome to another edition of InEvent News! We’ve got exciting updates to share with you today. There are new dynamic interface features that will certainly help you go beyond your goals. Check it out:


Live Reactions on screen

InEvent is an all-time high-end engagement solutions provider and it keeps getting better. Introducing the Live Reactions feature on the Live Studio

In your Virtual Lobby settings page, there is a tab that enables you to toggle on Live Reactions selecting up to a maximum of 7 emojis. The moment the stream starts, attendees can click on any of the available emojis to react to the live content. The screen will be momentarily flooded by reactions that are visible to all participants, including the speakers. The sender remains anonymous. 

The Live Reactions feature is available on the Live Studio, Pre-recorded (Simulated Live Streaming) and RTMP streaming. You can find it with an active subscription to any of the V&H events or webinars plans. 


Custom Screen Layout 

Easily customize your streams by simply dragging and dropping the screen layouts straight from the video player. You just need to select the design you want and have fun playing with the disposition. This nice touch will surely increase the production value of your broadcasts and webinars. You can only enjoy this feature on the Live Studio and it's available on all plans with an active subscription.


Answer Questions in Real-time

Write and edit responses to questions in real-time to boost your performance and manage your attendees with ease. As a staff member, speaker or admin, you have access to the ‘reply questions’ button, in the questions tabs. All you need to do is select a question, type your reply on the text bar, hit send, and the question will be automatically checked as answered. 


All these features are created to be set from the front end, without the need to leave your Virtual Lobby to configure anything. All of the improvements we make come from you and are made for you. Stay tuned for some more fresh news soon and follow our social media to stay up to date with our next broadcasts. See you soon. 

Breakout Rooms, Live Studio Native Videos and new Integration

Hello and welcome to another edition of InEvent News! We have exciting news to share with you. Check out the new updates in our products:

Breakout Rooms

Why settle for less when you can have more? Exactly! We thought about this too. That’s why we came up with a solution. With one virtual or hybrid event session, you can create multiple breakout rooms with various topics. Allow your attendees the pleasure of easy navigation through the breakout rooms.

And there’s more! You can set timers, capacity, and enable and disable rooms with the click of a button, in real-time. If you set a time frame for the rooms, a message will pop up when the timer is running out and they will be automatically moved back to the main session. 

You can access these features with an active subscription on the advanced and full V&H plans


Live Studio Native Videos

If you are an admin or the host of a live broadcast, you can upload your videos during your sessions, in the live studio. This video playback feature runs natively on the InEvent servers with a high frame rate, so you don’t have to worry about having the most sophisticated computers available.

You can add multiple videos at the same time, and play them simultaneously. You can also change the layout of the videos. Once the video is over, it will go backstage automatically, so it’s perfect for a countdown timer before the session starts, for example. The moment the countdown stops, you can immediately switch to the presenter’s screen. And your session is live! 

Watch out as there will be an option to loop the videos in order to stream as the idle video mode before the presenter goes live. Also, there is an option to pre-upload videos directly on the platform's back end before the session begins.

The live studio feature is only available on the advanced and full plans for both V&H events and webinars. This is another call for you to subscribe to these plans so you don’t miss out on the fun!


Sync Event Data with CVent Integration

Optimize time and make the most out of your client list by automatically pulling invitees and attendees from your Cvent platform, using standard fields and/or custom fields. It’s now available on the InEvent V&H full plan. 

Watch out for updates on this integration because there will be an option to sync back all of the sessions the attendees are enrolled to, in the near future. And if you want to transfer CVent’s registration forms to the InEvent platform, we can make that happen! So be on the lookout!


That is it for today. I hope you take advantage of these new features and keep producing amazing events and webinars to your clients. Come back soon for more fresh news!

Global Fields for Registration Forms, Video Quality Indicator, Fixes and Additions!


Hello and welcome to another edition of InEvent announcements. We have exciting news to share with you. Check out the new additions to our features.


Global Fields for Registration Forms have Been Enabled!

You can now create global fields that will automatically appear on every event and/or webinar you create. Easily locate these fields in your event/webinar’s registration form and/or purchase form. With this, you can extract statistical data for all of the events with matching fields in one report.

Disclaimer: since this is a global field, you should note that the information inserted on one event will also be available for admins from another event.


Video Quality Indicator

You may have noticed that when you hover over your frame as a speaker, you will see a window that displays information about packets sent, packets lost, bytes sent and frame rate. Without delving deep into the technical terms, this data helps you ascertain the quality of your net work connection. Packets sent is the amount delivered to the participants viewing the video during the session. Packets lost and bytes sent is the amount lost on the internet, which is always on an up trend when the network connection is unstable. Frame rate is the speed at which the video streams per second. Note that Mux is the only video provider that enables the video quality indicator to appear real-time on the speaker’s frame, without having to leave the platform.

Why is this important? You may ask. Remember that your goal is to have high-end videos at your events and webinars to impress your attendees and sponsors with your production quality. And, of course, you know what that does to your overall business objectives right? With the aid of the video quality indicators, you can easily determine if an unstable network is the cause of poor quality images. With that information in hand, you can immediately switch to a more stable service provider that meets all the parameters on the indicator. 


With that said, try out these additions and thank yourself later for making the best decision to leverage the InEvent platform for events and webinars.

Live Studio PDF Sharing, Additions and Updates!

Hello and welcome to another edition of InEvent News. We have exciting news to share with you. Check out the latest releases and a very important update in the end:


Share Your PDFs on Live Studio!

Are you tired of using platforms that do not offer the solutions you need to deliver your data-driven presentations professionally? You’ve got better virtual events and webinars when you opt for InEvent’s dynamic engagement strategies. You not only have the pleasure of scaling up your engagement with the live studio, but you can also as well share PDF files during live sessions in the live studio. 

You may ask, what makes this better than sharing your screen for your audience to view PFDs? The difference is clear. The Live Studio PDF sharing feature is faster and more reliable because it does not consume a lot of CPU on your computer due to the PDFs being hosted on our server; the image quality of the PDF will be crisp and clear because the images are rendered on the server and not on the computer. This will give your live sessions the high-quality production value that you desire. Want to know what the best part is? You can share the controls on the PDF with all the speakers and preload the PDF on the platform for attendees to view before the session.


We have also deployed some amazing additions to the platform:

  • Added brand-new quality indicator & info for streams on Live Studio backstage;
  • Adjusted Sponsor Ad rotation timer (increased the frequency).
  • Added Cancel Meeting with email on Virtual Lobby meeting booking form.
  • Added extensions icon on File Manager attendee page.
  • Added preview for videos on File Manager attendee page.
  • Added UTM passthrough on Registration Form Share embed code.
  • Added UTM passthrough on Custom Form Share embeds code.
  • Added option filter for Event and Webinar.
  • Added PDF Library when sharing a PDF on Live Studio. Organizers can now pre-upload PDFs and use them later on in sessions.
  • When sharing a PDF on the Live Studio, it will be added on stage automatically.
  • Added tool to block library for Content Share on Live Studio.
  • Added Browser and OS information on People > Attendees dashboard page for Event Admins.
  • Added Browser details on excel export for Attendees.
  • Added dynamic content for Push Notifications on Virtual Lobby (like {{first-name}}).


Furthermore, check out some of the latest fixes:


Finally, an important update:

Starting from April 1st, we will be updating every session to the new default mode: Live Studio. It is the most recent technology we have released and it offers higher performance and more stability. The Control Room is still available for those who would like to remain using the previous set up, but we highly recommend trying out the new Live Studio. The level of interaction and customization you can achieve with it is just incredible.


That is all for today. I hope you keep reaching your goals with the help of our technologies. Stay tuned and come back for more fresh updates soon.
