Live streaming is probably the hottest thing in the online video world next to virtual reality. Today, leading cloud services provider Brightcove stepped forward to service the trending marketplace sector with Brightcove Gallery Live Event, a “live-event-in-a-box” solution that enables companies to promote and publish live streamed events without dedicated IT or other technical support.
Brightcove Gallery Live Event is designed for public brand events and internal events such as CEO town halls. For the pre-event stage, it offers features such as a countdown clock, a calendar event download, lead capture forms, and social sharing widgets to help companies to promote live events before they air. During the event, the destination page caries the live video, while supporting social widgets and chat features foster engagement and create a sense of community. It also has post-event tools enable organizations to create video-on-demand sites for the event content and implement calls-to-action (CTAs) for follow up. It also has an option for site visitors to submit email addresses to subscribe to future events or notifications from the event host.
Brightcove Gallery Live Event is available through the Brightcove Video Marketing Suite (VMS), and is available automatically to all VMS customers.
