What is Simulated Live?
Take control of your virtual events like never before.
Simulated Live is a presentation 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 presentation performs the same as a live stream where content is shared in real-time.
Why is Simulated Live a smart option for virtual events?
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.
What if there was a better way to conduct live presentations without facing these risks?
Simulated live presentations allow for pre-recorded content to be created and edited prior to the live event. This allows for the ability to 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 presentations come together with ease after some simple editing.
Speakers also benefit from the flexibility of this presentation format, now able to record their presentation from any location at a time that suits their schedule.
Viewers will experience the session as if they are attending a live presentation. 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 perception can be enhanced by having a live chat during the presentation and Q&A after the stream. Think about including some video content before the presentation (called pre-roll) and after it ends to maintain authenticity.
How does it work?
Once a session video file is created, event planners simply upload the file to Jomablue. The presentation is then scheduled to play at the start of the session. We recommend 10-15 minutes of pre-roll content before the presentation starts to allow viewers to arrive and settle into the session.
What does it look like?
To a viewer, a simulated live presentation looks exactly like a live stream. The difference is the presentation is actually pre-recorded so producers are in control of all the variables around speakers, scripts, production, and technical elements.
