Hangouts on Air

Google Hangouts offer an online environment where a group of up to 10 locations can connect and interact with video, audio, shared content and fun special effects.

Google Hangouts On Air extend the power of Hangouts by letting the producer connect the session to a designated YouTube channel where the presentation is  both broadcast and archived.

On Air meetings that are topical, well thought through, planned, prepared for, and executed can deliver premium content and provide a TV-like effect at a fraction of the cost.

Sessions are both broadcast to and archived on your YouTube channel, building a rich record of your work over time.

Why Hangouts on Air

The infrastructure, Google’s On Air platform, is reliable and free. Your audience is virtually unlimited, anyone who can connect to YouTube can join.  The audience can see and hear the discussion and any content that is shared; and you can supplement the experience with chat, Twitter, even a dial in number where questions can be taken and relayed to the participants.

Broadcasting On Air provides a live, interactive experience for your audience. This allows you to open a vivid, engaging, affordable channel that helps tells the story of your work, and its impact. It’s a great way to get your story out and your community involved.

Over time your channel becomes a rich archive of your work, and the history of your organization.

Google Hangouts is a flexible platform that can be deployed in a variety of formats that can include:

  • The in-depth discussion / presentation, where a work group reports back at milestones in their project, or to discuss breaking events
  • The branded online magazine with your host, reporters and guests from around the world
  • Live broadcast that can be branded as “Hangout with Us @…” – for example, @ at the SXSW Conference
  • The performance, presentation, reading, discussion – you name it

We can make this work for you.
