Collect Video Presentations From Invited Speakers
Use our Video Capture & Recording Tool to collect session videos from your accepted speakers. There’s no need to download additional software—the tool works right in your browser.
Videos are recorded, submitted, and reviewed all within one system.
Communicate with submitters with our built-in messaging tool, share videos submissions with stakeholders, and create peer or committee review rounds for quality control.
Manage Your Entire Call for Speakers
Our Video Capture & Recording Tool is a built-in feature of our CATALYST abstract management software, which means you can also use CATALYST to streamline your complete call for abstracts, posters, and speakers.
Collect, review, and manage all session content, including videos, papers, presentations, speaker bios, photos, and more.
Publish Video Content to Your Event Website
Once your speakers’ pre-recorded video presentations have been approved, publish them to your event website with our Virtual Conference & Event Platform.
Our platform features responsive design for viewing on all devices and provides virtual attendees a user-friendly way to search on-demand event content by topic/session, track, speaker/author, or content keyword.
Link to live-streamed content, turn on commenting to increase engagement and networking, and track event performance with analytics.
Video Recording Tool Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between the Video Recording Tool and your CATALYST abstract management software?
Our Video Capture & Recording Tool is a built-in feature of our CATALYST abstract management software. It can be used to collect video-only submissions from invited speakers. Or, use the full power of CATALYST to manage your complete call for abstracts, papers, posters and video presentations.
Absolutely! Except for some hard-coded text and buttons (such as Submit, Edit, and Withdraw), your video submission site starts essentially as a blank slate. You determine the instruction you want to provide and the questions you want to ask submitters, the limitations and requirements for those questions, and the order that information is provided, and your Omnipress project manager will set up your site accordingly.
There is no minimum or maximum number of video submissions. Because we are hosting the video recording tool on one of the top cloud-based services, we can easily flex its capacity to handle collections of all sizes, from large to small.
If speakers upload and submit a video that was created using another tool, the maximum file size is 2 gigabytes (GB). If submitters use our Video Capture & Recording Tool, the maximum file size is 6 GB.
Yes! The tool has a built-in video player, so the submitter can view their video recording from the video tab prior to hitting submit.
Absolutely. You can direct all your speakers to the Video Capture & Recording Tool to either record a new video or upload and submit an existing file. The only requirement is that the file must be in MP4 format and use the H.264 encoder.
Not only can reviewers see the videos, we strongly recommend including review round to check the quality of the recordings before they are made available to attendees.
In addition to videos, can I use the Video Capture & Recording Tool to collect other speaker or sponsor materials?
Because our tool is a built-in feature of our CATALYST abstract management software, you can use the tool to collect just about anything you need for your conference, including papers, poster files, presentations, speaker photos and bios, session handouts, sponsor and exhibitor materials and logos. The CATALYST platform supports many file types, from Word documents and PowerPoint files to PDFs, videos, images, and audio files.
Not at this time. Presenters and sponsors would be submitting their videos as recorded.
We offer a Virtual Conference and Event Platform that provides virtual attendees on-demand access to videos and other session content. Your Omnipress project manager takes care of platform configuration, set-up, and the publishing of all event content for you.
