Why Clevercast ?

More than just webinars !

Clevercast Webinar is flexible and extensible. It is used for various purposes ranging from conferences and presentations to e-learning, press conferences, corporate communication, town hall meetings… The appearance and behavior of the application can be adapted to the kind of event.

Different flows for participant access and interaction

You decide how participants can access a webinar and how they can interact. Participants can access a webinar in different ways (one- and two-step registration, invitation, redirect, API). Clevercast provides a complete overview of your participants behavior: registration, viewing time, interaction data including all questions and answers …

Optimal user experience on every device and platform

Our intuitive interfaces are designed for both desktop and all types of mobile devices. Clevercast transcodes your live stream in realtime for adaptive streaming, allowing the player to automatically ensure smooth streaming for everyone (based on the internet connection, screen size and available GPU and CPU).

Wide range of advanced features

Among others, Clevercast supports pseudo-live streaming, multilingual webinars through remote simultaneous interpretation, a dual-canvas player for presentations, breakout sessions, simulcasting, video chapters with navigation through thumbnail images, API integration… You name it, we’ve got it.

Customizable Multi-Purpose Webinars

You can fully brand your webinar front-end by selecting a logo or banner, color scheme, custom font, poster images in the player, social media icons… You can even create your own custom CSS file for further customization.

You determine the tabs/panels available on the webinar page. They depend on the options you activate in the backend for participant interaction (ask a question, private/public chat, survey) and information. You can also add third party solutions by embedding iFrames (social media wall, audience voting).

Clevercast allows you to import and invite participants, or set up a fully branded registration page for them. You can choose between one-step registration for marketing purposes or secure two-step registration in which registrants require approval before getting access to the webinar.

Below is an example of a branded webinar page (on desktop and mobile) and registration page. See our administrator manual for more info.

Multilingual Webinars

Multilingual webinars let you stream video with multiple audio tracks, both live and on-demand. The webinar player allows your participants to switch to their preferred language at any time.

The audio streams can be broadcasted along with the video. If this isn’t possible, you can do remote simultaneous interpretation through Clevercast Translate@Home.

Translate@Home makes it easy for interpreters to translate the incoming floor audio to any number of languages.

Pseudo-Live Webinars

Pseudo-live or simulated live streams allow you to stream an uploaded video as if it were a live stream. Viewers will not see any difference between a pseudo-live webinar and a real live webinar.

Just upload a video file to Clevercast and schedule the webinar at a given time. Clevercast automatically starts your live webinar when the time comes. See our pseudo-live webinar guide for more info.

Pseudo-live streaming is also available for multilingual video.

Webinars with dual canvas

Clevercast has the ability to display the presenter and presentation on two separate canvases. This way, participants decide themselves whether they see both images side by side, one in a cut-out (PiP), or one in full screen. They can switch views dynamically, for example to watch a Powerpoint slide with lots of text in full screen. This works in all browsers and on mobile devices. The second canvas may also contain videos.

When a live stream is afterwards published to Video on-Demand, Clevercast extracts the unique frames from the presentation and set them as thumbnails. Participants can use these thumbnails to jump to the corresponding section in the Video on-Demand webinar.

Optimal User Experience

Mobile friendly

Clevercast Webinar is built to work on iPad, iPhone, Android and other mobile devices. Our interfaces provide an unparalleled user experience on every platform. Adaptive streaming ensures smooth video streaming on mobile devices with fluctuating bandwidth.

Multilingual & intuitive interface

New users can start right away, without instructions, thanks to our intuitive UI that is available in multiple languages (let us know if you need an additional language). Our user interface will guide them through the process of registering, watching and participating.

Dual canvas for presentations

Both live and on-demand viewers can toggle the way video and slides are presented on any device, from side-by-side or PiP to full screen. For on-demand a slide carousel is automatically generated, making it easy to navigate to specific parts of the webinar.

Enterprise Ready

Secure registration

Clevercast Webinar lets you choose and customize the registration flow (public, marketing, manual approval, invitation-only). You can schedule reminder and follow-up emails that let you target different viewer segments with personalized calls-to-action.

Rich feature set for participant interaction

Clevercast has many options for interaction with viewers like live audience polls (in the video player), private and public chat,  Q&A, surveys, embedded Twitter feeds, interactive video elements, calls-to-action… You determine which features get used for each webinar.

Customize theme and branding

Landing and registration pages can be styled to reflect your brand identity. Add your logo, corporate colors and personalized messages. Tailor the system in depth to fit your precise needs, including email templates.

Easy to manage

Live dashboard

The live dashboard shows you exactly what is happening during any phase of the webinar. It lets you preview the video, start and stop the broadcast, see the number of participants, react to questions, launch polls, send private or public messages…

Publish to on-demand

Clevercast comes with DVR and automatic conversion to on-demand, offering those who missed the live event an almost identical catch-up experience. Webinars can be pauzed and automatically divided into multiple sessions (per topic or speaker). Recorded webinars can be trimmed and edited.

Extensive support

At Clevercast we believe in working together with our clients. We are gladly available if you need help integrating or deploying your webinar solution or even producing your webinars.

Batteries Included

Always available in the Cloud

Both the application and video processing live in the cloud. This makes the solution perfectly scalable. Extra storage space and processing power are readily available.

Detailed analytics and heatmaps

For every participant you know exactly which parts of the webinar have been watched, which fragments were re-watched. You can follow-up with an email or call-to-action based on the behaviour of the user.

Custom features and integration

Integration with your own environment or third-party solutions is important, so we offer customizable workflows, hooks and an API for performing integrations. If you need custom features, we can extend our application to fit your needs.

Fully branded landing pages

Landing and registration pages can be styled to reflect your brand identity. Add your logo, corporate colors and personalized messages. Customize by adding widgets such as Q&A, Twitter timeline and handouts.

Broadcast any way you want

You can use the WebRTC capabilities of your browser or any other broadcasting software. Or you can broadcast with dedicated hardware solutions for advanced productional requirements.

Manage registrations

Clevercast Webinars comes with a fully integrated registration module. Setting up a registration form takes less than five minutes, including a fully branded landing page for registrants. Choose between a simple one-step workflow for marketing purposes or a secure two-step workflow in which registrants require approval before getting access to the webinar.

You can schedule reminder and follow-up emails that let you target different viewer segments with personalized call-to-actions in order to gather feedback, send invitations and communicate next steps.

Record and replay

The record and replay functionality is what makes Clevercast stand out from the competition. Where most webinar platforms feature very limited support for on-demand viewing, Clevercast comes with a full-fledged VOD management solution, offering those who missed the live event an almost identical catch-up experience.

Features include multi-session DVR (allowing you to make separate recordings per topic or speaker) and automatic slide detection with a thumbnail carousel that allows you to navigate quickly in long video fragments.

Get to know your audience

Clevercast video heatmaps are tightly integrated with the webinar registration module, resulting in extremely detailed personal user analytics. For every registered webinar visitor you know exactly which portions of the video have been watched and how many times fragments have been re-watched, down to the second.

Detailed knowledge about which parts of the video are skipped or not viewed regularly, gives you the opportunity to improve future webcasts or follow up with a personalized call-to-action.
