JABC 65th Anniversary


JABC shared their plan for a special evening with Proshow and asked for help to bring it to fruition. The evening would be presented by a host and a selection of remote panelists. Serving as the MC, the host would present the virtual event from a studio and would need to be able to interact with the panelists. On the audience side of the event, JABC wanted to broadcast to two separate platforms. The first would be an interactive VIP experience, the second one, for the majority of the audience, would be a view-only event. Regardless of which platform the attendees were using, they needed access to real-time polling functionality.


Proshow hosted the MC at their own studio in Burnaby, BC. From here, we were able not only to produce the show but also handle all the content, including video assets, graphics and audio files. We used vcalls to connect the remote speakers to the studio so the remote speakers and studio presenter, were able to see and hear each other.

For the 100 VIPs, we leveraged our preferred two-way, highly customizable virtual event platform “Connexion.tv”. Ahead of the event, Proshow worked with JABC to create graphics to customize the platform to JABC’s style. Once graphics were created, Proshow fully handled the platform’s implementation and configuration.

The Connexion platform worked with virtual tables of 8 guests. Each table consisted of nine video tiles set in a “Brady bunch” configuration, with the centre tile showing the main stage at Proshow’s Burnaby studio. Everyone at the table was able to speak with, and see, their peers until the program started, at which point a Proshow operator made the centre tile go full screen. At the end of the program, attendees were given the ability to see each other again and share their experiences. In the footer banner of the virtual tables, we embedded a hyperlinked Sli.do logo (the polling platform selected by the client) which allowed the guests to interact with the polling tool in the same window.

The rest of the audience enjoyed the evening via the one-way (view-only) platform.

They were provided with a link to a landing page from which they were able to attend the broadcast. Slightly different from the VIP experience, the Sli.do polls were embedded on the landing page, so viewers did not have to open a second window on their screen nor use a separate device to answer the polls This configuration created an engaging experience by adding an interactive dynamic to the one-way stream.
