Traditional broadcasting is what you're used to seeing on TV - an overview of the event. Livestreaming is engaging with the audience, bringing them into the event. A successful livestream production actively engages with the online viewers in the same way that vendors and hosts at the physical event interact with attendees.
CKE not only provides professional-quality HD and 4K broadcasts and recordings, but has years of experience creating engaging livestreams that keep viewers entertained, and more importantly, keeps them engaged with the event on social media.
Chat is key in a livestream. If viewers come into a livestream that has an active chat, they are much more likely to stay and interact.
CKE provides experienced chat moderators for your event who not only set and enforce rules in chat to ensure an enjoyable experience for all, but also are extremely skilled at keeping the conversation going in chat by commenting on the show, asking viewers for their opinions on what is happening on screen, creating engaging polls, and more.
Not only do our moderators work to keep the livestream audience engaged, but each show for each event is built from the ground up to support audience interaction.

While attendees at the physical event enjoy a break between main stage events to visit vendors, get a snack, etc., downtime on the livestream leads to viewers leaving.
To counter this, CKE provides a dedicated livestream host who engages with the livestream audience while there is downtime at the venue. The livestream host works closely with the event organizers to ensure that the content of the livestream during hosted segments perfectly meshes with and properly represents the event
There are multiple reasons why livestream engagement matters to the overall event. The 2 most important are:
