Webex Events Production Studio benefits

Brand everything in the Studio

With Webex Events Production Studio, fully customize your live stream with your own branding, including colors, logos, and backgrounds.

You can upload videos, GIFs, and images and add them to your stream, which means that there are plenty of opportunities to showcase sponsors — even with sponsor videos!

Connect with your audience

Engage with your audience in real time by displaying viewer chats, Q&A questions, and polls in your live stream. Not only is this an exciting way to connect with your audience and highlight their participation, it's also a great way to encourage people to chat and ask more questions. Webex Events Production Studio even lets you "star" chats and questions, which keeps them in a separate list and helps you show them in your stream when the time is right.

Connect with more people by adding Closed Caption support, including our very own Webex Events Closed Captions & Translations, which is included at no additional cost!

Simple and reliable

We built Webex Events Production Studio to ensure that anyone can create professional live streams. You'll be amazed at how fun and simple it is to put on a high-production-value event!

Drive participation

Webex Events Production Studio comes with so many tools that facilitate attendee action and engagement. Adding a call-to-action or other important message with banners and tickers is simple and effective, and you can do it ad-hoc based on what's happening in the chat or the live stream. You can also use a Custom Tab to embed content in your live stream, like a session survey!

Share pre-recorded content

If you have a pre-event teaser video, a custom countdown, or a sponsor reel to play before your live stream, we have you covered! Want to play a longer video for your audience? You can do that, too.

Want your entire stream to be pre-recorded and played at a scheduled time as if it were live? Webex Events Simulive may be for you!

No software downloads

Webex Events Production Studio is a complete live streaming solution built in the cloud. You don’t need anything other than a computer with a mic, a camera, headphones, and decent internet to get started. To grant speakers access to the Studio, you simply share a link with them, and they can join your Studio on a computer or mobile device — no login required. 🙌

💡 Keep in mind, hosts must always join the Studio from a computer.

Is Webex Events Production Studio a good fit for my event?

Webex Events Production Studio is a powerful tool for creating professional streams with ease. However, it may not be a good fit for every event. Here are a few considerations when deciding if Webex Events Production Studio is right for you.

💡 Keep in mind, Webex Events Production Studio and the Webex Events RTMP player are included with all paid plans, so you can mix and match depending on your needs for each live stream!

Not a video hosting tool

Webex Events Production Studio doesn't host your stream recordings directly for people to come back and watch. However, recordings from the Studio automatically upload to the Video Center. It's easy to add recordings to Sessions, Live Stream features, speaker profiles, and more so attendees can access those recordings in the Event App. Read our article about adding recordings to your Event App for more information.

Check with your AV team

If you're working with an AV company, let them know about Webex Events Production Studio and the RTMP Player so they can provide input on which solution is best for them and your event. Some events may need advanced broadcasting software. For more on the RTMP Player, read our Introduction to the Webex Events RTMP Player article!
