Zoom is a video conferencing service that allows you to create conversations between different speakers, change and configure the screen layout or choose the broadcast quality of these talks.
In addition, Zoom has the capacity to send these video to your Event in Watchity (Production or Live Broadcast type), in the form of a video contribution (using the RTMP protocol).
You'll be able to capture your video conference in Zoom as a video stream to use in Watchity.
*Please note that this option is only available for Zoom: Pro, Bussiness or Enterprise pricing plans. The costs of this external tool are unrelated to the costs of Watchity.
