Video Broadcast Presenter Role

Video Broadcast Presenter Overview

As a Video Broadcast Presenter, you are mainly responsible for presenting during the live broadcast. The assigned Host is responsible for starting, recording and ending the broadcast. 

Video Broadcast Presenters and the Host all have the ability to:

  • Interact privately with one another via webcam starting 60 mins prior to the event
  • Broadcast live to event attendees via your webcam & microphone or microphone only
  • Share your screen with event attendees during the live broadcast
    • Only 1 screen can be shared at a time

Check out this article for some best practices to keep in mind while broadcasting.

Required Steps to Get Started

Perform the service checks below using the network and the device (laptop, desktop, etc.) that you will use for Hosting the live Video Broadcast:

If you see errors on any of these checks the first steps to troubleshoot are to:  

  • Enable your camera, microphone and screen share
  • Allow your browser to access your camera and microphone
    • Chrome
      • NOTE: Using Chrome on a Windows device is not currently supported because of a known bug in Chrome. Google has stated the bug will be fixed in their next version of Chrome due out in May 2020.
    • Safari 
    • Firefox
    • Edge
      • NOTE: Older, non-Chromium versions of Microsoft Edge (versions less than 79) do not support screen sharing capabilities

After performing the steps above, run both service checks again. If you still see errors please send the following information to support@brazen.com

  • The orange Rebrandly link displayed at the top of the Brazen Service Check page
  • The results from the TokBox Service Check by:
    1. Clicking “Run Test”
    2. Waiting to complete
    3. Scrolling to bottom and click “Save this data as simple text”
    4. Copying-pasting results in email 

If Brazen is unable to resolve the issue directly, you’ll need to work with your IT department to resolve by referencing the Technical Requirements article.  

 

Before the Live Broadcast

  1. Ensure you have a strong network connection 
  2. Log in to the event and look for the “Your booth” icon on your assigned video broadcast booth
    • You will automatically be placed in the booth in an event with only a single booth
  3. Enter your video broadcast booth and click the button to enable your camera
    • You can enable your camera & microphone beginning 60 mins prior to the event start time
    • Until the Host starts the broadcast, you will be communicating privately with fellow Presenter(s) via webcam 
  4.  Keep an eye on the number of viewers in your booth so you and the Host can decide when it’s an appropriate time to begin the live broadcast
    • A broadcast schedule is displayed in the event lobby and attendees will automatically be notified when the broadcast is about to begin
  5.  Once the event begins your screen will automatically refresh and you’ll need to re-enter your assigned video broadcast booth and re-enable your camera

 

During the Live Broadcast

  • Once the Host starts the live broadcast, viewers will see your broadcast on a 15 second delay
    • Host & Presenters see and hear each other in real time without any delay
  • You have the controls available to:
    • Share your screen
    • Disable your camera 
    • Mute your microphone
    • Stop your camera, mic and screen share
      • Doing so would completely remove you from the stream and the attendees would only see and hear the Host and other Presenter(s)

 

After the Live Broadcast

  • Once the Host ends the broadcast, viewers will no longer see or hear the Host or other Presenters
  • You can still communicate privately with the Host and other Presenter(s) via webcam until the event ends
  • Once you’re done, simply leave the booth or log out of the event 
  • Your Brazen Account Admin will have access to download an mp4 file of the recorded broadcast shortly after it ends
