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, 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 at the perfect times.
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!
There are so many tools in Webex Events Production Studio that empower you to encourage and influence viewers to take the actions you want.
Adding a call-to-action or other important message with banners and tickers is simple and effective, and you can do it on-the-fly 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 stream 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. 🙌
No volume-based pricing
No matter how many live streams your event has, you only need one Webex Events streaming credit to host an unlimited number of live streams. You can even go live multiple times in a single live stream.
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.
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. Advanced broadcasting software may be needed for some events. For more on the RTMP Player, refer to our Introduction to the Webex Events RTMP Player article!
