A hybrid event takes place face-to-face as well as remotely. One part of the orators and of the public take part in the event in a classical onsite way, meanwhile another part follow and/or participates remotely (from his residence or any other venue).
To ensure the interactions between these different sites we use a virtual platform (video conference, webinar, livestream).
In addition to the traditional technical means of broadcasting, a hybrid configuration requires the implementation of capture equipment and a control room for interfacing with the virtual platform. A hybrid setup can therefore be set up in any event location as long as there is a sufficient internet connection.
In order to ensure professional video capture, suitable lighting is necessary. Most often, several robot cameras are used, controlled by a single operator from the control room.
The remote part not being directly under our control, a good preparation upstream (tests of remote interventions, detailed script and backup of presentations) and permanent monitoring by the technical team are even more crucial for the success of the event.
