Add a New Event and Live Stream in Console

In the new Event Manager, an Event refers to an occurrence that happens at a certain date, time, place and includes certain participants.  An Event can include different elements including Live StreamsVODs, and Datacasts.  Think of it as a container that can hold multiple broadcasting "items."  If multiple Publishers (the school/affiliate that is broadcasting the event), plan to broadcast the same Event, there can be multiple Live Streams, VODs, and Datacasts.  

 

Here is a brief instructional video.  Step-by-step instructions can be found below.
