Live, But Not Live: How Simulated Live Videos Can Help Virtual Events

The global pandemic continues to halt in-person events. It’s making businesses take a serious look at their long term plans and switch to a compelling alternative i.e. going virtual.

So, how do you engage your audience without the energetic atmosphere of in-person events? It all comes to the content and how it’s being delivered. Live streaming is far more engaging while pre-recorded videos assure the event goes off without a hitch. Enters Simulated Live-streaming.

With Simulated Live on e2m OnAir, the virtual event platform, you can publish a pre-recorded video that appears as though it’s being telecasted LIVE. But, why choose pre-recorded content over live, on-camera presentations?

We’ll explain the myriad benefits of Simulated Live and how it works.

More Flexibility, More Freedom

It’s easy for your attendees to tune out behind their laptops. That’s why interaction is all the more important during a virtual event. Telecasting a pre-recorded video gives you time to interact and engage with your viewers and attendees rather than focusing on the technical requirements of a live stream.

Ease of Use

With a few clicks, you can schedule and stream any video as if it’s Live. All you have to do is:

1. Upload any pre-recorded content from a computer or cloud storage.

2. Select your streaming destinations.

3. Set a preferred date and time and schedule it.

Reach Attendees at Prime Time

Unlike in-person events where everyone is in the same venue at the same time, virtual event attendees can be anywhere in the world. With Simulated Live Videos you can schedule your pre-recorded content for your audiences across different time zones.

Better Control of What You Present

Live events are unpredictable. From speakers cancelling at the last minute to technical audio/video malfunctions, there’s always a chance for something to go wrong. Simulated Live Videos lets you avoid unwanted interruptions and stream edited videos without any buffer. If you make a mistake, you can always edit.

Better Time Management

With Simulated Live Videos you can not only telecast the best content but also ensure you are within the time limit. This means you don’t have to shorten or miss out on other valuable sessions.

Multi-channel Streaming

You can telecast simultaneously on multiple platforms like event apps, websites and also on YouTube and Facebook Live. Your pre-recorded content will appear as though they are being telecasted LIVE.

More Engagement Opportunities

On social media, live videos are more engaging than recorded ones. Facebook algorithms favor live videos and they are watched three times longer than their pre-recorded counterparts. (Source: Go-Globe)

Streaming a pre-recorded video as LIVE has caught on. More and more music artists and businesses are leveraging Simulated Live Videos to engage with their audience. Chances are, you’ve already viewed pre-recorded content posing as a live stream without even realizing it.

Re-use Existing Content as LIVE

You can repurpose pre-recorded interviews, keynote sessions, and other engaging videos from your earlier events. This way, you don’t have to produce fresh content all over again. It saves your time, effort, and money while you can attend to other important aspects of your business.
