Digitale Hauptversammlung mit Abstimmungen und Fragen.

Virtual general meetings – easy with the IMS event platform & app

The new law for the introduction of virtual general meetings of the Federal Ministry of Justice makes it possible to conduct annual votes digitally even after the pandemic.
With the modules of the IMS event & streaming platform and especially with our comprehensive polling tool, you can build and design your virtual general meetings individually and according to the specifications of your CI. The security standards of our registration and login tool thus enable GDPR compliant votings in addition to the AGM broadcast in livestream, if required also with anonymous personal requests to speak in our RealTime video conferencing tool and via the IMS Event app optionally for mobile devices.

For a non-binding and free test, we have set up a demo project (german version) for you, which you can also download as a template for setup on the IMS event & streaming platform. More information here.

IMS modules for live streaming with simultaneous interpretation | 03/2023

Livestreaming with simultaneous translations/ language versions

Through our cooperation with LiveVoice, our event & streaming platform offers two options to provide additional audio or language versions for live video streaming: with an on-site produced audio signal of the simultaneous translation that is streamed together with the video signal, or via the server-side integration of LiveVoice translations via IMS iframe module.

With the LiveVoice service, you can either use your own interpreters or book interpreters from the service provider.

In addition to translating live streams via our video player, our video conferencing tool RealTime offers the same functionality. Once integrated, the LiveVoice module controls and mutes the audio signal of the video conference and replaces it with the selected language version.

For more information and detailed instructions, please visit our FAQ section and our LiveVoice page.

Function overview - incoming messages, moderated mode and private messages | 02/2023

New agenda function - extended module tabs, agenda & bookings | 10/2022

Adding Tabs, Agenda & Bookings

In addition to a simple video agenda, this module gives you the option of adding an extended agenda function.

With the help of categories, event slots and separators, a detailed agenda can thus be clearly structured and individually designed, even for large events.

In conjunction with a login or registration function, you can use a selection function to set up a personal agenda for all participants – when bookings are made via this, these are listed individually for each person in chronological order in a new tab.

To do this, set up the “Tabs, Agenda & Bookings” module in the project manager, build your agenda and design it individually using the module functions and additional CSS if required. Decide whether and which slots should be restricted by a booking function and how many visitors can participate at most.

IMS CO2 calculator - calculating savings potential for online events | 03/2022

Klima und CO2-rechner, berechnen Sie Ihre Emissionen für eine Veranstaltung oder Event

Green Events with the IMS Event & Streaming Platform

InterMedia Solutions is climate neutral. Our employees mainly work from home and online, our office space has been significantly reduced and we use renewable energy sources wherever possible. When working with our system partners, we also pay attention to their environmental and climate strategy and only work with companies whose services are also climate-neutral.

Consider the environment when planning your future events. With an online offer for your participants, their travel and accommodation costs can also be minimized and you can thus significantly reduce your CO2 emissions. With our CO2 calculator, you can estimate the CO2 emissions of your event with just a few entries and evaluate the greatest savings potential through an (additional) virtual event offer.

You can compensate for unavoidable CO2 emissions by supporting climate protection projects and labeling your events accordingly. We recommend that you work with a professional partner, such as Climate Partner, who have also accompanied us on our way to becoming a climate-neutral company.

Event partner article - event series "AOK Plus im Dialog" now digital | 03/2022

Live streaming in practice

As a provider of live streaming and virtual events, we support AOK Plus with our event platform, many additional tools and CO2 calculators in digitizing the “AOK Plus im Dialog” event series in the long term.

The event series aims to network medium-sized companies in Saxony and Thuringia with the help of innovation impulses – with a focus on social trends and economic topics.
The following functionalities were used in the project:

  • IMS event & video streaming platform
    As a landing page including participant administration and login
  • IMS RealTime video conference
    Integrated into the platform as a breakout room concept with transfer of participant data (single sign-on)

For more on the case study, see “No webcam monotony thanks to Intermedia Solutions”, a publication by Event Partner.

Virtual event offers are very trendy | 03/2022

High demand for virtual or hybrid events

A study by the trade journal for event marketing “Event Partner” on the form of implementation of future LiveCom events confirms the continuing high demand for online formats.

Technical service provider becomes the most important value-added partner

With the increasing demands on an attractive and interactive online implementation, the importance of the technical partner increases. This not only applies to the now complex on-site media technology, which is often similar to professional TV productions, but also to the implementation of the online publication to the same extent.

With more than 1,000 successfully published video and webcast projects, we were able to further expand our leading position as a German provider of individual “event and video platforms”.

While it was hardly conceivable before Corona to hold events purely virtually, the events industry has changed massively in this regard in the last two years. Digital formats have developed and consolidated so that, according to trend research, not everything will start again after Corona and virtual events will be a thing of the past. Hybrid events are the future, the boundaries are blurring and formats that were previously used separately are being combined into a holistic communication platform.

New menu function - set up the menu bar once for all project pages | 08/2021

Add menu

With the new “menu” module – created as a freely positionable window (left-aligned or right-aligned) – you can add a menu bar with any number of menu items. Once set up, you can set on which pages of your project the menu should be displayed.

The individual menu items (text and / or icon, left-aligned or right-aligned) can be linked to project pages or individually designed windows that are opened by link in the sidebar on the right. The content of these windows can be freely formatted with the well-known editor and HTML source code. Additionally, images, links, and much more can also be used.

A virtual event can thus be expanded to include many other functionalities, such as:

  • simple navigation within any number of project pages,
  • agenda,
  • speaker information,
  • trade fair directory / list of exhibitors,
  • choice of RealTime “break-out rooms” or workshops,
  • any other event information, and much more.

The mobile view and “full width” are already preprogrammed – the menu items are automatically displayed as a fold-out burger menu up to a window width of 600px.

Further information and detailed instructions can be found in our FAQ area.

Exporting and importing projects | 04/2021

The export function

With this function, you can create a backup of your project, migrate projects from one account to another or archive projects that are no longer required.

Older or no longer required projects can be deleted after export to ensure a better overview in the projects of an account.

The import function

With this function, you can export or import archived projects into your account beforehand or migrate them to a second account.

The programming only allows importing projects previously exported from our system – other files and file types are therefore not accepted.

Further information and detailed instructions can be found in our FAQs.

New message box functions - tabs in the admin area and associated message boxes | 02/2021

The message box – admin with tab function

This option is useful if you have not set up a message box – viewer window in your project, but want to have incoming questions answered by various speakers.

To do this, use the mouse to drag and drop incoming questions into the tab of the relevant speaker, who can then answer the question.

Further information and detailed instructions can be found in our FAQs.

Associating message boxes – summarizing messages

With this function, a common database is generated for different windows of a project so that all incoming messages are collected in a common message box and can be displayed all in one.

In the case of events or live streams that are transmitted in several languages, all associated pages can now access a message box or be “served” by a message box. The incoming messages can therefore also be called up in a shared admin area.

Even in real-time meetings, in which, for example, a live stream is shown on a second page, message boxes can be integrated on both sides and the messages can be routed to a shared database.

Further information and detailed instructions can be found in our FAQs.

New function for live streams: cinema mode in the video player with video selection | 11/2020

The participants can choose between different video versions during live streaming events.

With this option within the “video window” module, you can set up a selection of different video streams and / or VoDs in the video player on the website for your participants. For example, you can offer your live stream in different languages.

Alternatively, e. g. videos on different topics or with different camera perspectives are available, so that the participants can choose which video they want to watch.

Further information and detailed instructions can be found in our FAQs.

IMS presents its own WebRTC for video communication | 09/2020

With the increasing relocation of face-to-face events to the internet, the demands on the virtual implementation of such online events are also growing. Multifunctional “play out” pages replace the simple video player, individually designed event platforms replace the event location and interactive web applications replace the usual highlights on site.

In the field of audiovisual presentation, the requirements that are known from web meeting functionalities are often mixed with the technical possibilities of a live stream.

With the new IMS WebRTC module, we want to remove the limitation of the previously offered, closed web meeting systems and thus enable the use of web meeting functionalities in the event area.

The module offers the following core functions:

  • All server locations are within Europe and all services are provided in accordance with the GDPR
  • The module will offer all standard web meeting functionalities
  • Additional functionalities are being developed to support various event scenarios and to simplify the production effort
  • Access is barrier-free, no installation or app required
  • Free integration into any (event) platforms and websites, also as a single solution, is possible

Digital voting, live surveys and online tests | 04/2020

The new CMS module “Polls / Surveys / Tests” enables you to create and manage any number of questions and answer options. With many other functionalities, it is possible to design and moderate the display of results or other calls for action.

With the “Test” extension, each survey can be expanded by a result (right / wrong) and a rating, and evaluated accordingly.

Evaluate voting results based on participants

Together with the “Login / Registration” CMS module, extensive coordination processes or performance records can be carried out and evaluated and documented on a personal basis.
A weighting of individual votes (voting rights or voting rights) can be defined in the participant administration.

Participants’ consent to vote digitally can be requested via a function within the registration and registration process.

Show questions at the right moment

With the “Live Sync” function, the activation of questions is synchronized with the video stream on the server side. For the viewer, this means that all questions, regardless of individual buffer times and latencies, are also shown synchronous to the video history. The request for a vote also goes hand in hand with the possibility of voting.

As an alternative to the live display of questions controlled by the operator, the participant can also be enabled to navigate from question to question.

Surveys / tests – now also for spectators on site

The new function “Generate QR Code” enables the audience on site to take part in a survey during an event. To do this, they can use their own cell phones to scan a QR code (displayed e.g. as part of the presentation or on the invitation) and take part in the survey. Try it yourself.

New Message Box Window | 3/2020

Select, prioritize and display incoming messages

With the modules “Message Box and Message Box Window” you can enable your viewers to enter messages.

You can optionally specify whether the messages are sent anonymously, with voluntary participant data or with selected login data (e.g. first and last name, company, etc.).

In principle, incoming messages can only be seen in the admin area. With the “Message Box Window” module you can also make messages visible to all participants.

In the “Message Box Admin” interface (password = test), which you open in a browser (e.g. with a smartphone or tablet), all incoming messages are displayed in real time.

“Important” messages from your participants can be moved to the blue column on the right using drag & drop and stored there in the desired order. In his view, by hiding the left column (Show important messages only), the speaker can focus exclusively on the right column and thus the “relevant” messages.

Integration of Skype calls into a Live Stream | 2/2020

Integrate participants in a video conference (e.g. Skype) into a webcast – regardless of where you are

For your internal communication, many companies use web meeting platforms, video conference systems or other solutions that support video calls or conferences as well as the sharing of screen contents.

But what about external communication? How can participants be reached who are not part of a Skype contact folder or who are unable or prohibited from installing program files to participate in web- or video meetings.

How to capture e.g. Skype Audio / Video signals as a participant of a Skype call, using the NDI function:

  • Use encoder solutions that allow external signals (audio / video and presentation / screen content) to be importated and thus encoded as a live stream (e.g. NDI plugin for OBS)
  • Mix different video sources and their presentations into one live video signal,
  • As soon as the live signal is encoded and sent to your IMS streaming account, it is also available within the player window of your webcast project.

As part of the player module, you can now control the publication as required between different live and on-demand video sources.

Here you will find important information on the topic of remote speaker / video calls and many important information and tips for implementation.

Video Calls/Webmeeting vs. Webcast/Livestreaming | 1/2020

With many project inquiries, the requirements and ideas regarding online video communication and live streaming become blurred. We want to give an overview of available “one to many” video communication formats.

Webmeeting Tools – intensive exchange of small groups:

  • Web meetings, video calls or conference systems are ideally suited for intensive exchange in smaller groups.
  • All individual participants are visible with there video signals and can also use their microphone to make a verbal contribution. The intensive exchange of information can be supported by sharing the respective screen contents and presentations.
  • The change of speakers, topics or entire meeting (rooms) is accompanied by interruptions in which organizer or moderator rights are redistributed or the participant has to register for a new meeting.
  • Open microphones, strange video settings or backgrounds that allow insights into the private environment of a participant underline the overall impression of a rather casual meeting off a mostly homogeneous and small group.
  • In order to gain access to a web meeting, it is usually necessary to install a program or an app.

Webcast / livestream – professional “one to many” communication:

  • Webcast comes from broadcast and means nothing else than Web TV. Content is professionally prepared and access is easy and barrier-free. The number of participants can be almost any size.
  • The webcast project keeps the participants on a platform, enables the desired level of interaction (news, surveys, etc.) and guides the participant through the different options, such as: live stream, meeting rooms, video archive and much more.
  • The livestream produced can be composed entirely or in part of remote speakers – i.e. speakers who are not personally present – with their audio / video signals and presentations. In this case, input signals from video calls or web meeting functionalities can also be used to produce the webcast.
  • However, the viewer does not take part in these meetings himself. The change of speakers, discussion groups, presentations, scenes or anything else is edited in the video mixer and the viewer experiences all of this as just part of his live stream.
  • Access to the webcast can be completely free, limited or protected. No installations are required.
  • For the participant, a professional event takes place without his intervention, similar to participation in a live event.

New Message Box functionalities | 11/2019

Sort and prioritize incoming messages.

With the “Message Box“, you can easily add a feature to your webcast that allows your viewers to send messages to you. These messages can be sent anonymously or, if you use our “Login / Registration”, also with selected credentials.

In the “Message Box Admin” (password = test) interface, which you open password-protected in a browser (for example, with a tablet), all incoming messages are displayed in real time.

With “Drag & Drop” you can drag “important” messages of your participants into the right column and place them in the desired order. The left column can optionally be hidden, which in turn allows the focus on the “relevant” questions shown in the right column.

IMS Media Server with Live Transcoding / Adaptive Bitrate Streaming | 10/2019

Server side encoding now available for live streaming.

In order to provide the best possible video quality to all participants in a live webcast, webcast producers have had to encode several live streams locally and send them to the streaming server. This is not only an increased technical effort, but also a correspondingly strong upload connection at the event location.

With the new function it is now possible to send one (1x) encoded live signal, in the best possible quality to the IMS Media Server network. There, the streaming server is encoding,in real time (Transcoding) the single live feed into further bandwidths. The IMS Player checks the quality of the Internet connection and, depending on this, receives the best possible video quality and size from the streaming server.

Use your own webcast domain | 08/2019

Publish your webcast project under your desired domain.

Under your own domain and the matching favicon, you can publish as many Webcast and / or Videoportal projects as you wish for a one-time fee.

As part of the invitation management, your domain will automatically be displayed when sending e-mails.

New functionalities: Timeshift / Video List / Audio Mix | 05/2019

With the latest updates of our webcast services, the following new functionalities are now available:

  • TimeShift
    Allows you to jump back to any part of the live video stream.
  • Video Menu
    Easy way to display any number of video lists (news from 03/2019) within a single menu structure.
  • Audio-Upstream-Mix
    With live streaming, we can now create and deliver individual audio / video stream versions on the server side from a single video signal and any number of audio signals (eg language versions). The encoding can thus be “on-location” limitied to the individual video signal and the audio signals only, which in turn saves upload bandwidth, computation and encoding performance as well as menpower.

The new IMS Webcast CMS - available now | 04/2019

With our new cloud service, we bundle and expand the functionalities of the well-known IMS webcast modules:

  • IMS Media Server

Video List - any number of videos in one window | 03/2019

Often it makes sense to display a selction of videos within a webcast project.

The new webcast module makes it now quite simple: Define window size, select the desired video directory on your IMS Media Server, adjust the order and name, publish project – done!

IMS introduces streaming platform for 24x live stream from 21 countries | 06/2018

The Eurovision Townhall of Daimler Financial Services was made available as a live stream for the first time, across Europe in 23 locations.
In addition, each location sent a live audio / video signal, enabling Internet-based live communication. The local teams of the individual locations became part of the overall event with their live video feed, presentations and questions.

  • 21 countries
  • 23 locations
  • 24 live streams
  •   1 platfrom

In order to minimize the latencies between the locations, dedicated IMS low latency services were used and the streams were published via the IMS player with optimized buffer times.

The successful technical and conceptual implementation of the entire event, including audio / video production and much more. was carried out by the team of the Orgeldinger Media Group.

IMS Re-Stream to Youtube, Facebook, Twitter & Co. - Increase your reach | 05/2018

With the IMS Re-Stream, we offer the option of forwarding a live stream to any video server or social media platform, thus enabling additional distribution of your webcast.

For this purpose, a live stream sent to our IMS Media Server will be transmitted server side – directly from the IMS data center – to any other live streaming server or video- and social media platforms.

Once a live stream has been produced, it can be published on any other platforms and networks without additional production-, encoding- and uploading effort.

IMS Media Server with VOD Encoding / Adaptive Bitrate Streaming | 03/2018

Users often have a limited internet connection for a variety of reasons.

Our goal is to provide every video in the best possible quality. You can now upload a video to your IMS VOD Services account. On the IMS servers, the video is then encoded into additional bandwidths (with individual profiles on request). The IMS Player constantly checks the available Internet bandwidth of the viewer and delivers the best possible video quality and size, depending on their needs.

More than 100 international government representatives discussed the opportunities and risks of climate change and biodiversity.

The worldwide available live stream was viewed by participants from 36 countries in Europe, Asia, the Americas and the Pacific.

Using Video Conferencing Technology to stream to the Internet/Intranet | 03/2017

IMS provides VCW (Video Conference Webcast) services for publishing video conferencing signals on the Internet and Intranet.

Many companies already have a professionally equipped media or conference room, including audio/video equipment, presentation technology and a video conferencing system.

However, the distribution of the video or the video+powerpoint presentation is usually limited to a small number of connected subscribers, who can only view the feed through equipment which is technically compatible with the video conferencing system.

Using the IMS solution, a video conferencing signal can be made available to an unlimited number of users – worldwide, in top HD quality and, above all, without requiring special software or hardware equipment. The stream can be accessed directly, or with password protection, from any PC or mobile device connected to the Internet.

Turn your video conference a webinar, or take advantage of many interactive webcast features by adding live chat, surveys, links, or download options to the video stream.

Technically, the video signal can be sent to our server system or fetched from it and made available on the Internet. The video can also be linked to any dynamic or interactive web elements in a microsite created with the IMS-Webcast Manager.

In addition to video streaming servers and webcast software solutions, IMS also offers full support, right up to the Full Services Management of your video conferencing webcast projects.

IP/RTSP Signals Published as HLS/Flash Stream | 01/2017

A new functionality of IMS-Streaming & Webcast Services allows RTSP signals, e.g. from monitoring and IP cameras, to be processed during the Push or Pull procedure, and to make them available as an HLS or Flash stream.

Publishing a video signal from a monitoring or IP camera via our streaming servers offers the following advantages:

  • Publishing as an IMS Webcast Manager project allows the simultaneous representation of several signals and the unrestricted integration (via link or copy&paste code) of these in any web pages.
  • Unlimited access: By default, an IP video signal is called directly from the camera and thus at the expense of the Internet connection at the camera location. Each call burdens this connection and thereby inhibits all other applications which are also dependent on that connection. Calls to our streaming server network, on the other hand, are possible worldwide and unlimited.
  • Interactivity and many other functions such as login, registration, chat, messaging, surveys, polls, download options or links.
