New month, new promo! PheedLoop’s April Promotion provides 5x Exhibitor Lead Retrieval & Marketplace Credits for FREE to clients who sign an agreement by 4:59 PM EST on Friday, April 28th, 2023.
Lead Retrieval allows exhibitors to scan attendees on-site through the event app to save them as a lead. Exhibitor representatives can grade the attendee and leave notes on their conversation, which will be visible in the exhibitor’s exportable leads report.
The Exhibitor Marketplace allows exhibitors to sell products and services to attendees through the event app. This is an excellent opportunity to open up a new revenue stream for you and your exhibitors by selling attendees tokens which they can then redeem for products and services on-site!
Meet & Stream has been a go-to feature for event organizers all over the world when it comes to streaming events online. If you're an event organizer, you know how important it is to make your events accessible to all attendees. With the COVID-19 pandemic accelerating the transition to virtual events, the need for more accessible and inclusive virtual events has increased in importance over the past few years.
One way for event planners to offer more accessible events is by providing captioning for your virtual event sessions. This is why we're excited to announce that PheedLoop's Meet & Stream now offers Automated Captioning! In this blog post, we'll go over the new captioning feature and how it can help make your virtual events more accessible going forward.
If you didn’t already know, Meet & Stream is PheedLoop's native streaming solution that is seamlessly integrated into PheedLoop.
It’s the only streaming solution that is built right inside of PheedLoop. This means that you don't have to go anywhere else for additional services and can rely on one simple, streamlined platform to manage everything for you right from your Virtual Event Portal's backstage!
The Backstage is a special tab in the Virtual Portal that is only viewable to speakers and Event Admins. This is where you can manage your Meet & Stream sessions, answer Q&A, and create and enable Live Polls. It's all in one place, making it easy to manage your virtual event!
Meet & Stream is pay-as-you-go, so you don't have to make a massive upfront commitment. Recordings are automatic with every Meet & Stream session, making it easy for you to upload content back into the platform for on-demand viewing.
Meet & Stream is a perfect match and meshes seamlessly with our Audience Interaction power-up feature which enables Live Polls and Q&A. This entire live streaming ecosystem is seamlessly integrated into PheedLoop, making it easy to engage with your audience and keep them engaged throughout your virtual event!
Overall, using PheedLoop’s Meet and Stream offers many benefits, including:
Automated Captioning is a new feature in PheedLoop that allows any Meet & Stream session to have Automated Captioning conveniently within the video itself.
The captions are instantly available and provided in real-time, relying on AI technology to produce accurate captioning. This allows attendees to easily follow along with the streaming, even if they have hearing impairments or if they’re in a noisy environment where they can’t follow along with the audio.
This feature improvement helps Meet & Stream become even more accessible to people! And the best part? It's FREE to Meet & Stream users and will only work within Meet & Stream. This means that you don't have to pay extra for this amazing feature.
When you create a Meet & Stream session in PheedLoop, you'll see an option to turn ON Automated Captioning. Once you turn it on, captions will be automatically generated and displayed in the video for attendees to see.
As an attendee, you are able to turn the captions ON and OFF, as well as change the sizing and look of the captions. This gives attendees more control over their viewing experience and allows them to customize the captions to their preference.
Currently, the Caption feature is offered in English only. In the future, we may consider adding other languages to further improve accessibility for all attendees. In the interim, if you need to run captions and SI in different languages, you can choose from one of our many other multi-language streaming options!
The new Automated Captioning feature is a significant improvement for Meet & Stream. With this new feature, you can provide captions for your virtual event sessions without any extra effort. And with Meet & Stream being the best native streaming solution for your events, you can manage everything in one place and engage with your audience like never before.
So, if you're looking for a way to make your virtual events more accessible and engaging, give Meet & Stream a try with the new Automated Captioning feature. We're excited to see how it will help you make your virtual events even better!
