Professional Live Events Producer Usage
I have a number of small ideas around the practical use of the producer end of live events.
1 Offer more options with regards to split screens eg two face images at the same time. 50/50 split and smaller/larger would be good. don't just restrict to a presenter and a document.
2 Add in the ability to share from two devices at the same time and switch between them. At least one presenter and the producer. If you need a backup, one will bump the other off the shared screen. It also automatically goes live if you do this bump off (not a good ideas and very risky)
3 Captioning is a very nice feature but there is some confusion in how to turn it on in the player window (subtitle or caption?)
4 Sometimes it is useful to have a live event with two types of audience eg on Teams and the other on Streams. Can you offer a way to push a live event with captions to Streams? This would give the ability to broadcast 'a conversation' out to a stream.
5 A live time clock (with seconds) on screen would be helpful.
6 Is there a way for the producer to have more control over mic switching (not just mute all)
7 Is there a way to get back into the live event if the producer closes it accidentally? Or is it just finished for good?
That is all for now!

Multiple people on screen is a must, how can run a panel debate or a fire side chat without it?
If you want to be competitive with Zoom, the ability to show two presenters at once, or a presenter and their PPT, and the ability to auto-switch between speakers without someone needing to click go-live, is a necessity.

I'd like to be able to see the two people talking e.g. like an interview or a quiz, both on the screen at the same time.
