1. Hubilo Broadcast Studio

The cat’s finally out of the bag. Yes, you heard that right! Introducing you to our in-house broadcasting studio, that lets you stream directly through Hubilo. Keep your speakers and host within the virtual event platform and avoid the hassle of connecting with an external vendor for streaming sessions. Also, give full control to the host to manage speakers and session streaming. Additionally, allow your speakers to rehearse and privately interact with each other and the host, in an online waiting room.[caption id="attachment_8496" align="aligncenter" width="640"]

3. Single Sign-on (SSO) Integration

Greater security and compliance is something that all organizations hosting virtual events strive for.To address this need, we have developed a functionality that will allow you to choose the level of authentication required on an event-by-event basis. Apart from the option of social and email logins, we have now incorporated SSO as well.This means that you can enable SSO for login authentication, to centralize and simplify the user experience, while controlling the access to your events.In fact, you can use Google SSO, SAML, ADFS, Azure, SAML, onelogin, okta, vmware, or OpenID based SSO authentication to make sure that only people from your organization can join the virtual meeting or event.The set-up process is seamless and just involves 4 steps:

  1. Visit the Integrations Tab in the Organizer Dashboard and select Single Sign-on (SSO).
  2. Mention your organization and domain Hubilo-SSO Integration name.
  3. Select your identity provider, such as Google, SAML or ADFS, and enable the integration.
  4. Configure SSO by turning on the SSO toggle in the Event section of the dashboard. (You also have the option to turn off the attendee SSO for a specific event.)
