In its bid to enhance its events offerings, video-conferencing platform Zoom has acquired certain assets from Liminal. Liminal is a startup company that offers event production solutions built largely on Zoom’s SDK.
With virtual and hybrid events here to stay, users will need best-in-class tools to professionally produce their programs and performances online from anywhere in the world.
Two of Liminal’s co-founders, Andy Carluccio and Jonathan Kokotajlo, will also join Zoom.
Liminal’s solutions, including their ZoomOSC and ZoomISO apps, will help bridge Zoom with traditional and emerging event control applications and hardware to help theaters, broadcast studios, and other creative organizations address complex technical production needs, and collaborate and create online effectively.
“Like the future of work, we believe that the future of events will include a combination of virtual and in-person formats,” Zoom said in a statement to tech site CNET.
In July, Zoom had unveiled ‘Zoom Events Services that helps organizations to build, host, and manage virtual or hybrid events. In the same month the company also announced Zoom Event Services to help customers plan, support, and produce virtual, live, and hybrid events on its platform.
