What is “Webinar” and what is our new webinar service “Live Webinar PACKAGE”.
In this article, we explain what a webinar is, what you can benefit from webinars, and how you can get the most out of it.
【 1. What is a webinar? 】
The word 'webinar' is a blend of 'web' and 'seminar'. It is a lecture, seminar, workshop, or a presentation held via the Internet.
【 2. Difference between a real event and a webinar 】
What is the difference between a real event and a webinar?
You should consider from the perspective of cost, a venue, customer attraction, and preparation.
The audience gets the benefit of participating without leaving the comfort of their home. The webinar can be more effective in attracting customers.
The audiences get to participate in the seminars without going to specific venues. They can watch it from their home, office, or even while they are in transportation.
In addition to this benefit, a webinar is less expensive to rent a venue, operate, and prepare the event.
【 3. About live streaming and streaming pre-recorded video 】
The webinars have two ways of streaming. One is a real-time webinar, and the other is to stream pre-recorded video. Let’s consider which is better for your webinar.
The audience can communicate with the speakers by using the chat function, sending direct messages, or actually speaking.
Live streaming makes the audience feel realistic even when they are at home.
◆Streaming pre-recorded video
For the pre-recorded webinars, you stream the video which has already been recorded.
The host can use the pre-recorded video to provide the webinar over and over again.
The advantage of this type is that the audience can participate at any time they want to.
The host can edit the video afterward, to add productive information and improve the contents.
