A webcast or webinar is a broadcast over the internet that is often used for presentations and similar programs in a one-to-many (one speaker to many attendees) or few-to-many (few speakers to many attendees) format. A webcast/webinar can incorporate audio only or audio with slides, video and slides, or video.
A webcast is designed to broadcast presentations (a one-to-many or few-to many format). Webcast platforms have robust features that support an event, such as registration microsite, branded screen, social media integrations, tracking and analytics, and polls and Q&A.
Web conferencing is built for online meetings. As though you’re sitting around a table, everyone present in the meeting can speak to all the other participants and be promoted to presenter. Web conference platforms lack the features mentioned earlier that are found in a webcast platform.
A virtual conference center, virtual environment and/or CorporateTube video portal are solutions offered by West that keep your webcast visible, productive and returning ROI. Other storage options are available.
West’s webcast software is designed to make presenting intuitive and user-friendly. As you get ready for your webcast, our event managers can provide tips and best practice guides to help you prepare.
