The efficiency of setting up online events is critical, especially as events get larger. Uploading the event assets, whether on-demand videos, resource files or speakers’ photos can take time, especially as contents get changed last minute by exhibitors and presenters. Having a centralized library for these assets where all admins have visibility on uploaded assets and can re-use them would provide a major productivity gain. Furthermore, organizations use different storage solutions, e.g. Google Drive or DropBox, as their central repository where they collect the event assets before uploading them into the venue. Ability to connect into these repositories, and directly upload the assets, instead of copying them first to a local machine, would be a huge time and sanity saver!
To address these needs, we have enabled each venue with its own Media Library, a central repository for all uploaded images, videos and files within that venue. Admins can now collaborate on uploading assets and reusing them when needed. Furthermore, the storage has been moved to Amazon S3 for fastest attendee run-time experience. The Media Library can directly be accessed through the Administer menu, or within the appropriate editors. Each item in the library is assigned a permanent URL. This gives admin further flexibility in using the asset anywhere via simply using its URL.
Click on the Upload button and access your assets locally, using links, or from Google Drive, Dropbox and Box. You can upload up to 5 assets at once, and can edit images within the editor before uploading to the venue.
