One-to-Many, Many-to-Many, Few-to-Many Livestream - What's the difference?


Wondering what a many-to-many meeting or a one-to-many as well as few-to-many livestream is? In this article, we'll be happy to familiarise you with the different types and show you what the difference is.



This audio and video meeting can accommodate up to 50 people per standard room can participate. All participants can talk to each other directly or via group chat with each other. In addition, there is the option of sharing content such as such as a presentation via screensharing or a YouTube video via the integrated YouTube function function, as well as with the help of evenitos live polls or external tools (e.g. Miro) to collaborate. 

The provider Jisti is integrated in evenito connect. Other well-known many-to-many providers are for example Zoom, Teams or Webex.

Please note: These external tools can not be integrated into evenito integrated. An access is however for example with the help of the depositing links in the description text.



In this format, also called a webcast or livestream, content is delivered by person or group of persons by means of video and audio to many viewers. With the help of a (Q&A) chat or live poll presenters and speakers can interact with attendees. The participants themselves have no audio or video rights in this variant. 

In this setup, the presenters and speakers are together at one location (e.g., in a studio). The setup and implementation is often more complex in this case.

You want to set up and run the one-to-many stream without an external producer? without an external producer? At this point we would like to introduce the tools Vimeo and Youtube lead. 

Please note that evenito cannot assist you with the setup of the livestream. cannot support you, as these are external tools.

This type basically combines the previously mentioned formats. As shown in the graphic, the participants dial into an audio and video meeting and this many-to-many is then streamed to a larger group of people (few-to-many).  While the actors can thus actively see and hear each other, the participants themselves do not have audio and video rights. Communication takes place via (Q&A) chat, for example.

The individual participants (moderator(s), speaker(s)) are connected as standard within evenito via the many-to-many meeting "Jitsi". This meeting is then transmitted using the streaming provider MUX.

Alternatively, this can also be done with the help of an external many-to-many meeting or, in the case of an event with an external production partner, via the director.

It is important to note that not every many-to-many tool has the function to stream from a meeting. 

In the second option, i.e., implementation via an external producer, the actors (moderators and speakers) each receive a separate access link for an external tool from the producer.

This moderator/speaker access should not be confused with the login link for evenito connect, which you send to your participants shortly before the event.
