A Newport Beach-based company that facilitates the issuance of events tickets has partnered with a cloud-based network to offer registration and tickets for online broadcast of live events.
TicketSocket connected with Mountain View-based BlueJeans Network, a video communications service connecting people across a wide range of devices and conferencing platforms. Events planners, through BlueJeans’ integration with Facebook Live, can stream live, interactive broadcasts and augement them with TicketSocket’s marketing tools.
TicketSocket said it wants to help events organizers create a new revenue system by enticing viewers who might not be able to attend a live event to buy tickets for live streaming, with the goal of increasing virtual attendance, co-founder and President Mark Miller said.
Examples of events are Tony Robbins Live and League of Legends gaming tournaments.
