Broadcasting to the Stage
This article will explain the Backstage and how to Broadcast from the Backstage to the Main stage in a Bevy Virtual Conference.
The Backstage is where Speakers and Presenters will remain during their presentations, and from where they will broadcast to the Main Stage. The backstage is essentially the place that you push live to the Stage when you're ready.
Accessing the Backstage
In order to enter the Backstage, Speakers/Presenters will be given a special URL generated by one of the Hosts of the event. They can always use this link to get back to the Backstage if they leave for any reason.
Hosts can find this URL in the Agenda tab of the event creation.
As a Backstage participant, you will see a tab in between the General chat and your DMs called Backstage. This is essentially a group chat for those in the Backstage, and can be used throughout the event.
Broadcasting to the Main Stage
From the Backstage, any Presenter is able to broadcast to the Main Stage. This could be the Speaker, Emcee, or any other Presenter role in your event.
Click on the Broadcast icon in the bottom menu bar.
If you wish to livestream to the Main Stage, see this section below
In order to gain audio/video and screenshare capabilities, please ensure you have Presenter Mode enabled. If you don’t see the option to use Presenter Mode, ask a Host in the Backstage chat!
Leaving the Backstage
If you click away from the Backstage into any other session, you will need the direct link to the Backstage in order to re-enter.
The stage itself is auto-recorded however as a backup you may record the backstage so that you have a duplicate file of the Stage content.
Live Streaming to the Main Stage
You are able to livestream to the mainstage from 3rd Party software.
