The Webcasting Software Feature Engineers Should Not Live Without

As live event professionals ourselves, we build control and safety features into our webcasting software to meet the demands of the Live Event Industry to help Engineers be successful on-site when streaming live events.

One such feature in CEO StagePro, our proprietary webcasting portal, is the Doorman Page. I use this feature all the time on shows.

Let’s take a quick look at the Doorman Page feature to see how it benefits the event profession when streaming live events, using screenshots from a test event I created in our demo portal...

1. When an attendee views a live event that hasn't been opened, they will land on a Doorman Page until the event is opened, in the software, by the Encoding Engineer.

The Doorman Page for the viewer will look like this...


2. But the Encoding Engineer with Admin Access, will see the same Doorman Page with a hyperlink below the test video window that says, "Bypass Doorman."

It looks like this...


This feature allows Encoding Engineers to monitor a feed in the actual viewing environment of the event, without opening it, so nobody else can see it.

This give you the opportunity, in rehearsal, to test things like...

 - Video Quality
 - Audio Levels
 - Audio Sync
 - Bandwidth Utilization

I also use this feature with Corporate IT and/or Viewing Site Captains, by granting them temporary Admin Access, so they can see a test feed prior to opening the event.

This is especially useful if they haven't been able to participate in a scheduled test prior to being on-site.
