REMOTE INTERPRETATION FILLS THE MISSING PIECE TO CORONAVIRUS CANCELLATIONS

With COVID-19 looming large, everyone is thinking about alternatives to live, face-to-face events. Many have already shifted to using online solutions to reach their international delegates. Ranging from online streams for large talks and presentations, to video conferencing for meetings requiring delegate interaction, these solutions are a great alternative to live events in the face of the global pandemic. However, these solutions become less viable for events requiring multi-language support.


How would interpretation fit into a video conferencing or ​online streaming event without feeling like an afterthought?


Congress Rental can now support any video conference platform and provide multi-language functionality using our remote interpretation solutions. Our solutions fully integrate with platforms to provide a seamless, high quality listening experience for international delegates. These solutions include:

  • Congress Remote Seminar: For one speaker talking to many listeners in a one-way video stream, such as with online events, lectures, seminars. Listeners can use live chat for either public or private interaction with other listeners and the speaker.

  • Congress Remote Meeting: For small meetings with up to 6 delegates speaking, such as online workshops or professional meetings. Speakers can freely speak, mute, or unmute their audio and video broadcasts and can speak freely into the platform for interpretation. Unlimited number of listeners

  • Congress Remote Classroom: For mid-sized meetings that require audience interaction with up to 100 participants, with Q&A sessions or larger workshops. Just as the name implies, the event is controlled by a "teacher" or chairperson who manages the people able to broadcast, can mute, or unmute speakers and even log them out. ​.
