EventsAIR releases AV technology management for hybrid events
Hybrid events management platform, EventsAIR, has announced a new addition to its technology suite.
With this new capability, the EventsAIR Hybrid Event Solution Suite now aims to help event organisers to control cameras, projectors and audio tools from any location in the world.
Using the EventsAIR suite, event organisers can arrive onsite and set up equipment such as PTZ (pan/tilt/zoom) cameras, projectors, LCD panels and more to create accessible and professional productions viewable both by in-person and virtual attendees.
Once set up and connected to EventsAIR, the cameras are controlled by the AIRCast Studio allowing event hosts and producers to control and use this equipment for scheduled sessions.
The EventsAIR Hybrid Event Solution Suite includes a mobile attendee app where in-person attendees can communicate, engage, socialise, network, and connect with their virtual counterparts.
The EventsAIR platform also includes accessibility tools that aim to bridge the divide between in- person and virtual attendees. The company recently added real-time simultaneous translation, which aims to enable language translators to access the platform from anywhere in the world to deliver live interpretations, as well as closed captioning and sign language options.
Joe Ciliberto, global sales and marketing director, EventsAIR, said “The new AV management technology allows event planners to organise and produce professional hybrid events of all sizes on smaller, more affordable budgets. 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.”
“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.”
Trevor Gardiner, CEO, EventsAIR, added: “Our team has been working round-the-clock to design and deliver innovative and creative 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.”
Renee Elliott, global director of customer success, EventsAIR, commented: “For the first time, event managers producing hybrid events can now offer the same level of professional broadcasts that until now were the exclusive province of professional AV production houses."
The company made the announcement at IMEX America 2021.
