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 & record meetings
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.
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.
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.
Rich viewer experience
Live Hybrid meetings are streamed to a Live Stream website that can be fully customised with a council’s logo, branding and language. Members of the public can watch a meeting on any device, and access vote results, slides and documents alongside the video.
Digital signage support
Live Hybrid can display a wide range of content on in-room display screens. The meeting operator can choose to show live video of a remote speaker, a list of meeting participants, a summary of vote results or a countdown timer with Live Control.
”We has been using Live Conference since May 2020, which has allowed for the continuation of County Council meetings, via an easy to use virtual platform. The support we have received from the start has been fantastic and continues to be, as we navigate through the pandemic to provide meetings that possess openness and transparency.Susan SandersPembrokeshire Democratic & Scrutiny Services Manager
Normal working procedures would not have been possible if it wasn’t for LocalGov Live.
”The speed at which the LocalGov Live team turn things around is one of the real positives of why local autorities should go with LIVE Conference for virtual live streaming.Craig TylerBarnsley Head of Governance
