Technology is in the way
Complicated software installation, cryptic configuration, no access from mobile devices... Web event starts 10 minutes late if you are lucky. With 6 participants that's a whole hour wasted!
Technology shouldn't be in the way in web events
One minute you are an expert in your field and the next you are pixelated into a Picasso painting. The most Frequently Asked Questions during a web event are can you see me? can you hear me? do you see my slides? Often quality is so bad that you have to connect with your phone even just to hear well.
How can you convince your audience this way?
In most web events, you get the screen shared by the presenter with a postage stamp sized video on top of it.
Do you really want to be seen inside a tiny box?
Even over an expensive room systems with multiple monitors you never know where to focus. It gets even worse when you have 20 tiny videos, all going at once! Just imagine yourself presenting to a huge audience of important people.
