The new AV management technology allows event planners to organise and produce professional hybrid events of all sizes on more affordable budgets, from anywhere in the world.
Eliminating the need for high AV production costs, the equipment within the EventsAir suite can easily be set up onsite to create accessible and professional productions that can be viewed by both in-person and virtual event attendees.
EventsAIR global sales and marketing director Joe Ciliberto said the ability to remotely manage equipment is a huge step forward for the events industry.
“It represents a step forward in terms of giving both virtual and in-person attendees the ability to connect, engage, and participate in one seamless hybrid event experience, with all the buzz of the real-world experience,” Ciliberto said.
The EventsAIR Hybrid Event Solution Suite includes an innovative mobile attendee app where in-person attendees can communicate, engage, network, and connect with their virtual counterparts.
“For the first time, both in-person and virtual attendees share a common session experience, asking questions and polls, networking with each other, and earning points with the included gamification platform.
“Exhibitors can also connect at the same time with in-person and virtual attendees, engaging in activities, conversations and meetings.”
The EventsAIR platform includes a suite of Accessibility tools that bridge the divide between in-person and virtual attendees. The company recently added real-time simultaneous translation, enabling language translators to access the platform from anywhere in the world to deliver live interpretations, as well as closed captioning and sign language options.
“These accessibility options are available to both in-person and virtual attendees using either the OnAIR portal or the mobile attendee app,” Ciliberto said.
EventsAIR chief executive officer Trevor Gardiner said the team had been working round-the-clock to design and deliver the solutions to help event planners produce in-person, virtual and hybrid events.
“Now we can add cutting-edge remote AV management to our existing built-in and affordable streaming solution and our powerful production environment, AIRCast Studio.”
