Live Display is a great way to boost engagement and inform attendees about what's happening at your event in real-time. Live Display works with devices that have web browsing capabilities and a stable internet connection. This article outlines device and network requirements and gives instructions for connecting Live Display to your venue's screens. 📺

Device requirements

To show Live Display at your venue, you must open the Live Display link in a web browser on a computer or other device that's connected to a monitor, TV, or projector. Here are some important items to keep in mind:

  • The computer or device running the browser should have 2GB or more of RAM and AC power.

  • We highly recommend showing Live Display on Chrome. However, Safari and Firefox also work well with Live Display.

  • Make sure the device isn't running other unnecessary software or programs.

  • Deactivate the screen saver, energy saver, and automatic sleep settings on the device to make sure it doesn't automatically turn off or go to sleep.

Internet connection

We recommend running a hardwired or LAN connection directly into the computer or device that's connected to each display. This ensures a stable and uninterrupted connection. The Wi-Fi connection at the venue may be enough, though we recommend having a mobile hotspot as a backup option in case of connection interruptions.

Configure Live Display

Before you can show all of your awesome event content at the venue, you need to activate, enable, and configure Live Display in the Webex Events platform. If you haven't configured Live Display yet, follow the instructions in our Live Display Setup Basics article to set it up.
