Create and schedule a Live event

To schedule a Live event, in the Webcast Admin portal, at the top of the page, click + Create New Event. On the Event Settings tab, next to Event Type, select Live with Archive. Enter the event name, and select the event date and time, duration, and time zone.

Note: The event can be from 30 minutes to 8 hours long and can be scheduled at any 5-minute interval on the hour (9:00, 9:05, 9:10, etc.).

Then, select how presenters will broadcast their audio or video on the day of the event. If you're broadcasting audio only, select Telephone as the Live Acquisition Source. If you plan to broadcast live video, select another broadcast type. Once you've selected a broadcast source, select the location you'll be broadcasting from on the day of the event.

For the Max. Audience Size, select the number of people you expect to attend the event. Access to your event will be limited to this specified number of simultaneous live viewers.
