Take control of your virtual events like never before.
Simulated Live is a streaming option where event organizers create a pre-recorded video file and set it to play at a specific time as if it were live. This is different from an on-demand video where a viewer can click on the video and play it whenever they like. A simulated live stream presents the same way as a live stream where content is shared in real-time.
Why is Jomablue Simulated Live a smart option for event professionals?
Every event planner has encountered challenging scenarios that come hand-in-hand with hosting live-streamed events. For example technical audio/video malfunctions or speakers being unavailable at the last minute.
Simulated Live is a better way to host live activity without facing these risks.
Pre-recorded content is created and edited prior to the live event. Event managers can solve any technical issues that come up in the lead-up to the event or during the presentation. Once the recording is completed organizers can edit as required or enhance the best parts. Best of all, multi-speaker talks come together with ease.
Speakers also benefit from the flexibility of this session format, now able to record from any location at a time that suits their schedule.
Viewers will experience the session as if they are viewing a live talk. You can build anticipation just like a live stream – if they are late to the session then they will miss out on the content. This experience can be enhanced by having live chat and Q&A available during the session.
How does it work?
Step 1: Once a session video file is created, event planners simply upload the file to Jomablue. We recommend 10-15 minutes of pre-roll content before the session starts to allow viewers to arrive and settle into the session.
Step 2: Set your Simulated Live video to play using Jomalbue’s built-in Live Stream feature. It includes a live preview so you can see how your stream will appear to viewers on event day.
Step 3: Explore Jomablue’s Experience Ratings. This feature provides an experience score and presents alerts if something isn’t quite right. When a file or setting needs attention the alert is accompanied by tips on how to improve the Simulated Live Stream experience.
What does it look like?
To a viewer, a simulated live talk looks exactly like a live stream. Event professionals love it because the content is actually pre-recorded so organizers are in control of all the variables around speakers, scripts, production, and technical elements. Jomablue’s unique features such as Experience Ratings and Simulated Live Stream Previews further safeguard the professionalism of delivery.
