Webinars & Meetings with the Magnet Event Platform

Introduction to Zoom Webinars & Meetings
These different forms of digital events offer similar features, but there are some important differences regarding how to share audio and video and control them.
Meetings are designed for collaboration, in which all attendees can share their screen, turn on their webcam and microphone and see who is present. Everyone can turn their own sound on and off, but the meeting host can also turn the other attendees’ sound on and off.
Webinars are designed so that hosts and any designated panelists can share their webcam, microphone, and screen. Other attendees can listen and have the opportunity to interact through questions and answers, chat, answering voting questions, and even shareing their screen. The host of the meeting can choose to activate the microphone for an attendee so they can talk. Webinar attendees cannot change their names. Hosts can also disable attendees.
Should You Choose Meetings or Webinars?
Zoom meetings are like meeting rooms, perfect when you want to host more interactive gatherings in which you want audience participation, or gatherings in smaller groups. The form is best suited for meetings with small to large groups, customer-oriented meetings, sales meetings, training sessions and so on.
Zoom webinars are more like virtual lecture halls or auditoriums. Webinars are perfect for a large audience or for larger events that are open to the public. This form is better suited for large events and public presentations where there are more than 50 people attending. Whether you are giving a lecture, a performance or so on.
The maximum number of attendees and for what amount of time you can hold your events depends on which Zoom license you signed up for. There are four different licenses: BASIC, PRO, BUSINESS and ZOOM UNITED BUSINESS. The higher up you go, the more features and higher limits.
With Meetings, you can have 1,000–100,000 participants depending on the license.
With Webinars, you can have 10,000-100,000 participants depending on the license.
