Challenges

InEvent Challenges

Sony Electronics' Tech Tuesday is a weekly webinar series created in mid-2020 to maintain their relationship with the A/V community. The pandemic outbreak prompted them to pivot really quickly to virtual interactions. Once they got off to a successful start and helped interactively facilitate an engaging dialogue with the industry, they began to scale up the production value of the webinar.

The live broadcast ranges from product launches, demonstrations, and user interfaces to panel discussions with industry leaders. Sony Electronics' expectations for their recurrent webinars require a platform with state-of-the-art broadcast technology and the tenacity to sustain the series long-term. And so, they started with an A/V webinar platform that gave short-term satisfaction; but when they discovered InEvent, their user experience changed for the better.

Sony case study

"I feel like we scratched the surface of what the InEvent platform is capable of, and I know that it's constantly growing and that's another thing that we're really fortunate to have. We've had a lot of collaboration with the development team. A lot of the things that we pitched have come to pass, implemented, and built right into the platform. It's been helpful to see that a company like InEvent listens to their clients and uses that collaboration to help grow the platform for everybody."

    Sony Electronics chose to deviate from the traditional webinar style and pursue unconventional broadcasts on a grand scale.

    "In moving to InEvent, we started to embrace more of a broadcast look for the Tech Tuesdays, and it's really allowed us to expand what we can offer to the attendees as opposed to just slides and webcams. We're now able to incorporate live demonstrations of graphic user interfaces, dynamic panels, and product launches."

    Sony case study

    InEvent continues to offer Sony Electronics a blank slate to build their broadcasts instead of the traditional slides over a voice-over webinar style. They can embed RTMP streams into their attendee rooms so that they interact and have Q&A as if it was happening in person. It's crystal clear that Sony Electronics isn't only scaling up its production value, but its engagement as well.

    "We follow up with our attendees through the Feedback Feed. We, of course, capture all their questions and follow up with the feedback feature. Then we send them relevant links via the Push Messaging system."

    Sony Electronics utilized the Sponsor Rooms to store all their past webinars for on-demand streaming. They also leveraged the Marketo Integration to manage their attendee registration and their marketing analytics.

    "The Marketo Integration feature is a great fit that gives our returning attendees a familiar registration portal experience that leads them into these broadcasts staged on InEvent."

    On the back end, Sony utilized web conferencing rooms to feed their production systems for many of the shows they've produced so far. On the back end, Sony utilized our RTMP technologies to feed their production systems for many of the shows they have produced so far. They were also able to reproduce their panelists' audio channels into the InEvent streaming room, switching it up smoothly without distracting the speakers.

    "If they are having conversation, it's supposed to feel organic. They're essentially in a web conference room, and we're switching broadcasts on the other end of it. So I found that to be a beneficial tool."

  • InEvent Case Testimonial
    The platform we used before InEvent met the need for the moment...There came a stern point where it was a combination of licenses running out for the platform, in conjunction with the urgent need to scale our production value. We wanted the series to appear in live broadcasts instead of just a PowerPoint presentation our viewers watched while listening to a voice in the background.
