What is a Simulated Live event?

If enabled on your account, you may see Simulated Live listed as an Event Type. Simulated Live allows for previously recorded or uploaded content to be broadcast to viewers at a selected date and time, appearing as if the content is live. This allows you to pre-record and edit your content in advance but still give viewers the experience of a live presentation.

When creating a new event as Simulated Live, you'll need to choose to Record Media or Upload Media Files as your SimLive Source.  Record Media requires you to schedule a date and time for the Simulated Live content to be recorded.  Like a Live event, you'll use the Live Studio to record the content that will be rebroadcast to viewers.  Upload Media Files requires previously recorded content to be uploaded and assembled.  Like an On-Demand event, you'll use the SimLive Studio to upload, assemble and publish content that will be rebroadcast to viewers.

Once content is recorded or published, use the Event Settings and Schedule page to schedule the Simulated Live broadcast.  Click Schedule a New Broadcast and select the date and time for the broadcast.  Previous Simulated Live broadcasts will be listed here.  After a scheduled broadcast takes place, the event will be accessible (as an Archived or On-Demand event) until a new Simulated Live broadcast is scheduled.

To re-purpose existing Archived or On-Demand events, visit the Event Settings and Schedule page and click Convert to SimLive next to the Event Type. Then, click Schedule a New Broadcast and select the date and time for the broadcast. After a scheduled broadcast takes place, the event will be accessible (as an Archived or On-Demand event) until a new Simulated Live broadcast is scheduled.
