1. Overview

Airmeet's "Persistence Backstage" is a feature that enhances the virtual event experience by ensuring continuity and seamless transitions during live sessions. Here’s an overview of how it works and its benefits:

Overview of Persistence Backstage

1. Continuity for Speakers and Hosts:

Persistence Backstage allows speakers and hosts to remain in a dedicated virtual space even when they are not actively presenting. This backstage area provides a consistent environment where they can communicate, coordinate, and prepare without disrupting the main event.

2. Seamless Transitions:

The feature supports smooth transitions between sessions or segments. Speakers can enter and exit the main stage without losing connection or experiencing delays, ensuring that the event runs without interruptions.

3.Real-Time Coordination:

Event organizers, speakers, and technical support staff can use the backstage area for real-time discussions, troubleshooting, and coordination. This helps in managing unexpected issues quickly and effectively.

Benefits of Persistence Backstage

1. Improved Speaker Experience:

Speakers can feel more at ease knowing they have a private space to prepare and communicate with organizers. This reduces anxiety and helps in delivering better presentations.

2. Enhanced Event Flow:

With uninterrupted transitions, attendees experience a more professional and polished event. The continuous presence backstage ensures that all participants are ready and informed about the upcoming segments.

3. Efficient Troubleshooting:

Any technical issues or last-minute changes can be addressed backstage without affecting the live audience. This reduces downtime and maintains the quality of the event.

4. Better Coordination and Communication:

The backstage area fosters better collaboration among event staff, speakers, and moderators, leading to a more organized and cohesive event management process.

In summary, Airmeet’s Persistence Backstage feature is designed to enhance the virtual event experience by providing a stable, continuous space for behind-the-scenes coordination, ensuring smooth transitions, and improving the overall quality and professionalism of the event.

2. Manage Backstage

As soon as a speaker or session host/co-host joins the session, they will land into the backstage area, where they can interact with each other and prepare to go live once the session starts.

Let's see how you can reach backstage

Step 1: As soon as you land at the event, click on Schedule section.

Step 2: Click on the "Go Backstage" button beside your session.

Step 3: You will land into the backstage area, where you can interact with other participants of the session (speakers, hosts, co-hosts and organizers)

3. Push Speaker to Stage

Once the speaker has joined the session backstage, the session host and co-host can push them to the stage either before starting the session or after starting the session.

Step 1:  Click and open the manage tray

Step 2: As a host or co-host, hover over a particular speaker tile or select multiple tiles together and click on the "move to stage" button.

Step 3: The Speaker will be pushed towards the stage and will be visible to audience (incase session is live)

4. Pull the speaker backstage

Once the speaker joins the stage, the session host and co-host can pull them backstage during the live session.

Step 1:  Click and open the manage tray. 

Step 2: As a host or co-host, hover over a particular speaker tile or select multiple tiles together and click on the "move to backstage" button.

Step 3: The speaker will be pulled towards the backstage area and will be visible to participants present in the backstage area.

5. Things to keep in mind

  • The organizer can watch the live session as an attendee. They can join the backstage group anytime during a live session by clicking the "Join Backstage" button.

  • Any backstage user can share their screen on backstage. This screenshare can be moved to stage by the host (without moving the person sharing the screen)

  • Closed captions are only available for live session. They are not available backstage.

  • Raise hand attendees will directly join the stage. They do not have access to the backstage.

  • When a session ends (or is paused), everyone on stage is sent to the backstage
