Delivering an engaging town hall meeting to 1,700+ people

In 2021, the Portuguese national postal service faced a unique digital challenge: Streaming their first virtual event to more than 1,700 employees joining digitally.

The client didn’t want to execute a standard town hall meeting, but wished for people to engage with the speakers. Therefore, they asked VOQIN’ for the event’s organization, as VOQIN’ – a popular Portuguese global experience agency – is well known for bringing emotions to virtual events.

The client

  • Founded: 1520
  • Employees: 12,000+
  • Revenue: € 745.24 M
  • Industry: Logistics & Postal
  • Headquarter: Lisbon, Portugal

The event in numbers

1,700+ participants

More than 1,700+ employees joined the virtual event to get to know the strategies and KPIs of the year ahead.

4 hours

The company event has been streamed for 4 hours, in best video quality and with high engagement rates.

70% traffic savings

Bandwidth savings with Strivecast's eCDN went up to 70%, which was important as the ingress bandwidth was limited.

VOQIN’ Emex for digital experience in the front end

VOQIN’ used emex, their digital events platform with enhanced engagement functions, to deliver emotions on this unique online experience and to generate engagement and reach a large audience.

Being an expert in digital events, VOQIN’ quickly realized that organizing the event itself and bringing people virtually together was not the only challenge. They recognized that bandwidth was limited. And as the same network deals with the client’s business, it was crucial to keep it working during the virtual town hall meeting.

StriveCast helped us to deliver an amazing event in a very short time. Every team member we spoke to was very on point with clear communication and a very high level of technical skills.

The solution: StriveCast eCDN for the back end

The technical challenge for this project was to ensure the constant technical stability of the live stream without jeopardizing bandwidth from other business-critical processes. Therefore, VOQIN’ got StriveCast on board: With our P2P enterprise Content Delivery (eCDN) solution, the event could be seamlessly digitally delivered without any problems in the network – saving 70% bandwidth.

Thanks to StriveCast’s eCDN more than 1,700 real-time viewers enjoyed the digital event in best quality.

StriveCast’s P2P eCDN optimizes video content delivery within the corporate network so that you can focus on delivering your messaging instead of worrying about your stream’s delivery. With its innovative P2P approach, StriveCast’s eCDN saves up to 95%bandwidth. Thereby, streaming high-quality live video content within corporate networks is possible and no longer limited by the number of viewers.

Bandwidth savings provided by StriveCast's eCDN went up to 70%, which was really important for the end-users as the ingress bandwidth was limited and distributed across the entire country - and it is the same network that deals with the client's business, so keeping that working was also a big challenge. Having the simple solution from StriveCast dramatically enhanced the entire experience.
