360° event concept "Hybrid Circle" at the Austria Center Vienna
Multiple cameras, eight screens and a circular set-up - that's what's behind the convention center's new format. In order to dissolve the separation of physical and virtual participants, which is often noticeable at hybrid meetings, and to enable real discussions, the participants sit in a circle around a round discussion center. The surrounding screens show the discussants in the room as well as the people in the extended circle and the virtually connected participants. Thus, all persons can see each other.
The "Hybrid Circle" is scalable and suitable for meetings from 20 to several hundred people. It can therefore be used for smaller discussion groups as well as for large congresses. The format was developed at the Austria Center Vienna together with the concept and production studio "Media Apparat", the event provider "Flave" and the video technology partner "AV-Professional".
