The Running Order

The Running Order is the beating heart of the live stream. It is a shared document that contains all of the information required to run a successful live stream.

The key columns are "Running Order"  and "Stream Scene Order". Attached is a PDF (Live Stream Scenes) that will show you how a scene will be displayed on the live stream. Use this document to determine the "Stream Scene Order" in the Running Order Template

Here is an example of a Running Order translated into a Stream Scene Order.

Running Order

Gary will introduce the session (5 mins) then he will present a PowerPoint presentation. he starts the presentation with a video (Introduction.mp4) and there are live poll questions at slide 8 and 14. Then moves to a panel session with Mark and Stuart, chaired by Gary. Gary starts the panel session with a polling question, then starts the panel session and ends the session with another polling question.

Parallel sessions: Bear in mind that if you are having, or intend to have, streamed sessions running at the same time you will need to have a live stream technician for each of those streams. Please make your Eventboost support member aware of any parallel sessions as early as possible to make sure resources are available.


Any video files must be shared in advance with your Eventboost support member. All videos will be played locally by the live stream technician.

Audio for the Stating and Closing live stream scene

Select a suitable audio track to play at the start and end of the live stream. Ensure that it is either royalty-free or that you have paid to use the audio track if it is not royalty-free.
