Livening up Live Events with Video Playout

Nothing drives home a point more effectively than video. It has the uncanny ability to hold people’s attention, make emotional connections and clearly inform people, all while generating visual stimulation and excitement.

In our previous blog, we looked at how presenting open and closed captioning during live events, presentations, and seminars can deliver important messaging to everyone, including the deaf and hard of hearing. But these same events can also benefit from automated playout of video and audio as part of the presentation. And, together they’re a powerful combination that boosts the overall value of a live experience.

In the same way that ENCO’s enCaption enables near real-time, automated captioning of the spoken word for stage, screen, or stream, ENCO’s ClipFire is equally at home playing out video clips to stage monitors as well as streams to web and social media sites.

This playout can be triggered on cue by an operator, or automated to play a scheduled playlist of video items to one or more channels simultaneously. ClipFire is especially useful for playing out live video for the following kinds of applications:

• Displaying live video captured by cameras during an event to IMAG screens in the venue

• Feeding a continuous loop of video and other media assets at museum exhibits

• Streaming video assets to online platforms for events like webinars and virtual concerts  

• Sending video, photos, and announcements to digital signage displays around a facility

• Playing out video and other media to large displays to support a live speaker’s talk

If your audience is bi-lingual, the spoken word in a video or speech can also be automatically translated in near real-time to any popular foreign language using another ENCO product, called enTranslate. Learn more about how complementary ENCO products can work together to enhance live events.
