ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Endavo Media and Communications, Inc., a global OTT video distribution platform for innovative creators and communities, announces its recent investment to bolster its live event and channel offerings. With in-person events continuing to be sidelined beyond 2020, the company is producing a robust streaming schedule that includes film festivals, concerts and performing arts.
Endavo’s new turnkey Virtual Live Event Platform, released this month, allows clients to easily program scheduled livestream events directly on its platform with pre-recorded content, live slots, marketing and promotional slates and advertising. Users can also monetize their live programming with PPV paywall, donations, series subscriptions and sponsors. In addition, Endavo launched its Interactive Live Event Experience to increase viewer engagement during events. The newly integrated features include live chat, live polls and trivia, social walls, Zoom panels and meetings, Shopify storefronts and donation collections.
“On the heels of our work streaming the Democratic National Convention this summer, we have seen a tremendous uptick in demand for live virtual events,” says Paul Hamm, founder and CEO of Endavo. “In the ‘new normal’ of 2020, we need streaming innovation more than ever, and it was evident that the industry standard wasn’t cutting it for many entertainers, live event producers and at-home viewers. Our new product releases result in the most robust platform in the industry for programming and streaming live events instantly.”
