New In-Room Mode Hybrid Event Webcast Feature Allows In-Person Attendees to Enjoy the Same Level of Participation as the Virtual Audience During a Live Broadcast.
Bethesda, MD — May 23, 2016— Communique Conferencing, Inc, the global leader in conferencing and virtual events, has announced enhancements to its award-winning Webcasting Service that include both in-person and remote audience attendees.
Coded in responsive HTML5, In-Room Mode complements the Webcast Pro experience for in-person attendees to events that have both online and in-person components (hybrid events). Now in-person attendees can enjoy the same level of participation as the virtual audience via their mobile device with no app or plug-in required.
In-Room mode empowers every attendee with all the interactive features traditionally available only to online attendees. In-person attendees can ask questions, answer polls, and view and save content. Attendees simply type any questions into the Q&A panel without the need to move the microphone. With In Room Mode, everyone has a front-row seat to view presentations.
In Room Mode supports many useful features to make engaging with in-person audiences easy and convenient. If enabled or included in the webcast, the features below will be available.
- Q&A: The ability for In Room Mode attendees to send text-based questions to webcast presenters.
- Enhanced Q&A Roll: The ability for In Room Mode attendees to view and send text-based questions that are moderated by webcast presenters.
- Forum: Subject-based forum for attendees to initiate and participate in threaded text discussions on various topics posted.
- Files: All files uploaded as Downloadable Assets for the webcast will be available for download within In Room Mode. External URLs uploaded as files will link out to the designated URLs in a new browser tab.
