Video conference platform Zoom announced a new feature called Zoom events. The company is promoting an all-in-one platform with interactive and engaging virtual experiences.
Zoom should be available later this year. According to Zoom Events, organizers can host “live ticket events for internal or external target groups of all sizes”.
Through this platform, users can create an event hub to manage and share live events such as all-hands and sales summits or conferences and launches.
This allows organizers to create custom ticket and registration processes and control access and billing information from one portal.
With Zoom Events, hosts can not only offer free, paired, one-time, or serial events, but also track stats like attendance, registration, sales, and more.
Further details about the platform will become clear after its introduction.
Recently, Zoom announced a feature called Immersive View that allows the host to set a custom background theme – like a classroom or courtroom – for their meetings. These layouts show participant videos in a scene that everyone shares.
Both meeting and webinar hosts can choose the immersive view of Zoom as well as the speaker or gallery view. Zoom’s immersive view can accommodate a maximum of 25 participants in a scene. If there are more than 25 participants, they will be displayed in a thumbnail strip at the top of the scene.
