Live@Expo embodies Expo 2020 Dubai’s theme of “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future.” Hovercast’s proprietary interactive platform brings a global audience to the Expo site through a live stream hosted by an onsite Guide. This Guide moves across the Expo, broadcasting their adventures to a live audience using a small camera and backpack-based streaming hardware. The audience communicates directly with the Guide by typing comments into a chat window, creating a feedback loop that leads to exciting quests, captivating interviews, and access to the global community of Expo participants. Take a guided tour across the Dubai World Expo site, featuring real-time interactions such as polling and comments between guides and guests.
