LIVVE, an end-to-end virtual events technology platform, founded by former Crystal Interactive managing director Chris Elmitt will launch on 28 September.
LIVVE is uniquely 100% cloud-based and boasts a plethora of innovative features, designed to streamline event production and bring everything into one web browser.
Elmitt said: “Since 2020, I have regularly worked on shows using Google Sheets for running order, WhatsApp for team comms, Box for assets and content, PowerPoint for graphics, After Effects for motion graphics, vMix for video switching, Unity for speaker comms, OBS for recording, plus the virtual platform itself. In fact, we conservatively estimate that producers use 10 or more different software packages to produce each and every show. That’s a lot to learn, a lot to manage on the day and, frankly, a lot that could go wrong.
“By putting all of the virtual event production tools in one place, we’ve hugely reduced the complexity and cost of running virtual events – in fact, anyone can now run studio-grade, virtual events from their desktop browser.”
Some of LIVVE’s key features include:
HD streaming – unrestricted video streams via the cloud with no third-party system required
Agenda Builder – structure and plan events by dropping blocks into an intuitive timeline. Trigger instances automatically as the event runs.
Media Pool – store all event-related assets natively to trigger in full quality at their predetermined times.
Presenter Live View – presenters access a monitor to the stage, as well as a preview of upcoming media and auto-cues.
Unlimited Events – run an unlimited number of events for one subscription.
Elmitt continued: “‘We have been at the forefront of the interactive event technology field for 20 years. The virtual event explosion is not going to stop and we are in the best position to provide event-grade, next generation digital meetings and events and make them accessible to all through our SaaS platform. All our experience has conspired to create this opportunity to do it better and simpler than the rest.’
