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.

Video Conferencing and Speed Networking Updates, Latest Fixes, and Additions!

Hello and welcome to another edition of InEvent News. We have exciting things to share with you today. Check out our latest updates:


Video Conferencing Recording Changes

Video calls are one of the most effective ways to stay connected with each other, especially because you can always record the content and use it for multiple purposes. Although, they are best enjoyed when the end-to-end communication is seamless and void of interruptions. Poor internet connectivity alongside other technical issues can lead to a host dropping from the video call, ultimately impacting the entire recording process of a session. In order to avoid such occurrence, InEvent has configured the video conferencing room mode to enable recording regardless of the host’s presence.



The Layout of the recording is dependent on the activity being performed. If only cameras are active, it’ll be a Gallery View type of recording. If you're sharing your screen, PDF or a video, the Focus Mixed type will be used. Note that this layout is not the same as that of the Control Room. In this layout, cameras are positioned on the left corner as a vertical grid.


Speed Networking Layout

InEvent is committed to provide you with the latest video technologies, so you can let go of outdated video conferencing solutions and embrace an all-in-one streaming software. The new Speed Networking layout promotes a more immersive environment to ease the random meetups you can promote in your virtual and hybrid events. The new animations, for example, display various personalities which signify togetherness in networking regardless of occupation and background. This thought-provoking message is reinforced by the sole purpose of events which is to bond and interact. The intent behind this upgrade is to make attendees feel relaxed and motivated to connect with each other.

Enough said…head over to the speed networking to see for yourself and relish the moment.


We have also dedicated time to deploy some fixes:


  • Fixed issue that the Email background color wouldn’t save correctly.
  • Fixed image distortion on Virtual Backgrounds for Virtual Lobby.
  • Fixed Virtual Backgrounds tool that was not disabling the feature when needed.
  • Fixed playback token on Audio Transcription Console.
  • Fixed issue with the Copy Event when Live Studio was enabled.
  • Fixed Form disclaimer widget on Registration Form. It was breaking if you had activities on form option enabled.
  • Fixed Form disclaimer widget on Purchase Form.
  • Fixed Polls settings buttons on Virtual Lobby.
  • Fixed issue on Live Studio that certain speakers couldn’t hear their co-hosts in certain situations.
  • Fixed Firebase Websocket chat quick connection with new splash loading for Virtual Lobby;


Here are some cool additions to the platform:


  • Added filter for Pending Submissions on Event Booking.
  • Added toll-free number for Dial-in option.
  • Added option to download your own certificate directly on My Account;
  • Added Salesforce duplication rule check in case it triggers while creating a new Lead or Contact.
  • Added option to open links on a new page when using Markdown for Headings. To use it, add {target=_blank} at the end of the Markdown link entry.
  • Now using native HLS library for static background videos on Virtual Lobby to reduce CPU usage.
  • Added automatic layout restore on Live Studio if the host has to refresh their page.
  • Added speakers stage status restore on Live Studio if the host has to refresh their page. Previously, all speakers were sent backstage once the host returned to the live stream.

That is all for today! I hope you keep achieving your goals for events and webinars this year and count on us to keep helping you to broadcast the best streaming content!
