Global meetings, events and hospitality technology provider Cvent announced, 2 August, the launch of Cvent Studio, a new video capture and production solution built for virtual and hybrid events. Cvent Studio is intended to enable event planners to create professional-quality video content for their webinars, virtual events, and hybrid events, and help them more deeply engage their online audiences.
The new solution is currently initially available through Cvent Professional Services and will also be available later in 2021 as an integrated component of the Cvent Attendee Hub.
McNeel Keenan, vice-president of product management at Cvent, said: “To maximise live engagement with audiences and drive ROI, event planners and marketers need to reimagine the production levels of their events, especially when it comes to video content and delivery. With the release of Cvent Studio, organisations will have access to a suite of easy-to-use production tools that can up-level their content and are available as part of our robust Cvent event marketing and management platform.”
Key features in Cvent Studio include:
- Director View: Allowing planners to mix quickly presenters, media, and screen shares; engage in multi-user and multi-presenter collaboration (with up to 10 presenters at a time); pre-record sessions; edit backgrounds, overlays, and lower thirds; and stream video through the Cvent Attendee Hub.
- Simple Scene Editing: By pre-building what each segment of the show should look like before going live, Cvent aims to give planners the ability to execute high-quality, fully branded video transitions with a single click.
- Presenter View: Presenters can be invited via web link to a separate virtual preparation space, allowing them to chat with the director and other communicators, edit their settings, view the programme, and share their screen in real-time.
- Branding tools: Users can customise their event with JPG, PNG, and GIF uploads, control icon and logo placements, and gain full access to the Cvent library of assets.
Cvent Studio was unveiled during the Event Cloud Product Roadmap session at the company’s annual user conference, Cvent CONNECT®, which is taking place 2-4 August.
