A Zoom webinar is a digital event or larger meeting where a smaller panel should interact or present to a larger audience.
A webinar or so-called. Zoom webinars usually take place by inviting participants with a calendar invitation or link. The size of the webinar is usually between 25 and 300 people, but often larger webinars also take the place of a Zoom webinar. In the larger webinars, however, it is important to think about the format to ensure that all participants feel engaged, involved and focused.
These major types of events and happenings have also placed new demands on the choice of meeting tools. Thus, new solutions such as Univid has evolved to meet these new needs, with features such as reactions, polls and quizzes where participants can be involved without everyone necessarily having to participate in video.
Below is a list of the features and concepts used when it comes to Zoom and webinars, and where these features are located in Univid:
I Zoom has different licenses based on whether you should only hold so-called Zoom meetings or webinars - where only one host (& quot; webinar host & quot;) and a selected panel of speakers are shown in video. In the Zoom webinar, regular participants do not have the camera on, but only participate through chat, show of hands or Q & amp; A. For Zoom webinars, you can have many more participants than at Zoom for meetings. Zoom contains simple polls, but for more powerful and graphically beautiful graphs and polls, a third-party app must be used, such as Mentimeter - this allows participants to jump to a new link, use another tab or even an additional device.
Zoom webinar is thus used for larger presentations where the focus is on a speaker or a panel of speakers who share, lecture, share a screen or answer questions from the audience.
In Univid, participants can answer polls and quizzes, chat with each other and the speakers, they can also ask questions and react with different emojis and smileys in a beautiful flow that all other participants can enjoy. Everything is fully integrated with the broadcast, so participants can stay on one and the same link, throughout the broadcast! Univid is created for powerful webinars, where you can broadcast from the studio or your webcam in high video quality. The host can share screen in peace, with a click send out their pre-created polls and answer the most liked questions in the chat!
Zooms waiting room means that the participants who navigate to the webinar link, before the webinar has been started by the host, end up in a so-called waiting room. The host can choose to admit participants in any order.
In Univid there is also a waiting room that is graphically appealing with your theme, background image, log and title of the event. Here, participants can in peace and quiet choose whether they want to create an account, or log in with a nickname, and take the opportunity to network while you as a host in peace and quiet prepare the last things before your webinar goes live!
Zoom share screen means that the host can share a screen with the webinar's participants - so the participants will see the same thing as you see on your screen if you share a screen. As a host, you can choose to share both a window, a tab in the browser or your entire screen. The host can also choose to share audio or not. At a Zoom webinar, however, it is often a problem to screen share a video from e.g. Youtube. In Univid, it is possible to share a screen and optimize for either video or still image. This way you can get perfectly streamed video sharing, without it hacking like Zoom. So Univid is a great option for you who often want to share video via screen sharing at your Zoom webinars.
Zoom has a feature to call attention, without need to turn on their camera or disrupt the flow of the webinar. This hand-raising function is available to all meeting participants, and is visible in the form of a small static symbol next to the participant's name in the participant list.
In Univid, participants can instead react with emojis and reactions, which all other participants and the hosts views like a continuous stream of reactions. This is instead a lively and dynamic flow of reactions that quickly gives the host a sense of what the participants think. Afterwards, you can analyze graphs of how the participants have generally reacted to different parts of the lecture or meeting, which is helpful in improving the content in the future. The basic reactions to Univid involve thumbs up, happy smiley, heart and impressed / surprised smiley - but you will soon also be able to choose your own for your video meeting!
