Japanese platform Eventos adds Tencent Cloud livestreaming technology

Japanese event platform Eventos has enhanced its offering through livestreaming technology from Tencent Cloud.

A brand-new feature called Easy Live has been added to the Bravesoft-owned platform through the technology provided by Tencent Cloud, allowing event planners to facilitate livestreaming within the platform and without the necessity of deploying external tools.

Now supported by Tencent Cloud’s Live Video Broadcasting (LVB) and Tencent Real-Time Communication (TRTC) solutions, Eventos has built upon its existing ticketing, business matching chat, and data analysis functions.

Kiyota Koichiro, board member and general director of event technology at Bravesoft, said: “The pandemic has shaken up the event management industry, where livestreaming and online events have become the new norm. Addressing the demand growth in livestreaming services, Eventos has now given its users the ability to easily host live events online, as well as foster business communication within this event platform through the support of Tencent Cloud.

“Our collaboration with Tencent Cloud enabled us to install a function that helps prevent broadcasting challenges and hurdles and also highlight the value of Eventos for our users. We look forward to further strengthening our collaboration in the future.”

LVB supports live shows, competitions, presentations and panel discussions, competition and live shows, and offers customised functions such as blacklist/ whitelist for open/close-door viewing, and interactions that allow comments with backend control.

TRTC is a low-latency interactive live streaming solution providing HD audio with high-fidelity processing algorithms to minimise ambient noise and anti-packet loss disruptions.

Poshu Yeung, senior vice president at Tencent Cloud International, said: “With the demand for digital transformation growing, aimed at improving the efficiency of businesses and allowing them to thrive in these challenging times, Tencent is helping businesses in Japan transform and elevate user experience.

“Through our innovative technologies and well-established platforms, Tencent has been a strong player in delivering high-quality LVB and TRTC solutions like no other and offering reliable solutions for more flexibility that allows businesses to sustain development, as well as keep up with the ever-changing customer needs.”
