Everyone is self-quarantined and working remotely. Now what? Well, now you have to take your conference online. But how?
The basic structure of your setup is going to be a live conversation that is broadcast to a larger group of live viewers. The live conversation could be something like one person presenting with a screen share, or one person interviewing someone else, or a panel discussion among a group of experts.
A really simple way to do this live conversation is to use Zoom. Adding Mux in the middle is how you can broadcast your Zoom call to an audience of thousands on your own website. The live audience does not have to download Zoom, they do not interact with Zoom at all. All they do is see a video player that you make on your website.
