INFO: Skype Meeting Broadcast & Integrating Viewer Interactivity

At Microsoft, we have executive broadcasts regularly, including “Employee Q&A/Fireside chat” meetings led by our CEO Satya Nadella that are broadcast to all our employees worldwide.

The video/audio broadcast is powered using our highly scalable Skype Meetings Broadcast technology – a service that Office 365 E3/E5 customers have access to. 

The service, by default, scales to 10,000 people simultaneously & works worldwide.  It also provides:

  • imageCLOSED CAPTIONING: Provides automatic closed captioning for the broadcast directly within the video
  • ATTENDANCE: Generates a report of attendees post broadcast
  • RECORDING: Records the meeting & makes it available for post-broadcast viewing
  • ANY CLIENT: Supported on IE 11, Edge, Chrome, Firefox, Mac OS Safari, iOS, Android
  • …and more.

Your Skype Meeting Broadcasts can gather real time sentiment from your audience through “Microsoft Pulse”. 

  • How do they feel about the topic being discussed? 
  • Do they strongly agree?  Somewhat disagree?

Users can click their sentiment throughout the broadcast so that broadcasters can get a sense of the audience’s opinions.  And you can get correlation reports of this feedback.

Skype Meeting Broadcasts can also have a running discussion displayed on the same page as the video.  This discussion can enable people to ask questions or have conversations about the topic being discussed in real time, driven by Yammer.

Per haps you’d like to empower viewers to ask questions during the broadcast privately.  Q&A capabilities can be added that allow users to submit their questions and wait for answers either via a meeting coordinator or answered during the broadcast.
