What’s Live Hybrid?

Live Hybrid is a powerful, easy-to-use solution for hosting hybrid meetings, where some participants are in a meeting room and others are joining remotely. It is tailored to the needs of regional and city councils, increasing engagement and improving transparency and accessibility.
Live Hybrid is designed to integrate quickly and easily with existing AV systems*. It requires minimal installation and training.  It is multilingual, the users can configure and use the system in their preferred language.

How it works

Live Hybrid is composed of three modules:
Live Stream resposive microsite fully customisable and accessible
Live Stream

Live Stream is a cloud-based system that enables an operator to book a meeting, invite participants, upload agenda points, slides and documents, and manage their live streaming website.

Live Control Speakers tab

Features

Simple speaker management

Live Hybrid has a single speaker queue for in-room and remote participants, so the operator can quickly and easily manage who is speaking. In-room participants ask to speak using their Bosch or Televic conference system*, while remote participants click on a ‘hand up’ button. The speaker queue is visible throughout the meeting on a screen in the meeting room and in the Live Conference software.

Integrated voting

With Live Hybrid, all participants can vote at the same time using the same system. In-room participants vote using their conference device, while remote participants vote using the Live Conference software. Vote results are automatically tallied, and can then be shared instantly with meeting participants and members of the public watching the webcast on Live Stream.

Multi-platform remote access

Remote participants can join a Live Hybrid meeting on their laptop, tablet or smartphone. Laptop participants can use Google Chrome, with no additional software or plug-ins required. Tablet and smartphone participants can download the Live Conference app or simply dial in.

Great participant experience

Whether attending in person or remotely, Live Hybrid ensures that all participants get the same experience and are not disadvantaged by being remote.

Our products are multilingual and can be configured and used in your preferred language.

Live streaming & recording included

Live streaming and recording meetings is easy with Live Hybrid. Simple controls allow the operator to stream a meeting in real time or record it to share later. The live stream or recording can be paused, stopped or restarted at any time during the meeting.
