This article covers importing media if you have the Elite Studio Recording Interface. Importing media allows you to re-purpose the Storyboard and Presenter Media from a previously run webcast and use the webcast again in a newly created Simu-live, Sim-2-Live, or On-Demand webinar.

Things to Know
- Simu-live webcasts MUST be recorded AND published at least TWO HOURS before the scheduled start time. ALL CHANGES must be made prior to this, including changing the start date/time, recording elements, choosing Rollover to Live audio, etc.
The Elite Studio Recording Interface DOES NOT HAVE backwards compatibility with PMXD/Elite Presentations.
- This means if a Simu-live event is created in Elite Presentations/PMXD but has not gone live BEFORE you enable the Elite Studio Recording Interface, you will need to recreate the event in the Elite Studio Recording Interface. Media from PMXD will not properly convert and play in the Elite Studio Recording Interface.
Reusing a Previously Run Webcast
This feature allows you to take a webcast that has already gone live or has been previously recorded and re-run it as a brand-new event.
You cannot import media into a fully LIVE webcast (Live Video or Broadcast Video present types). This option is only for pre-recorded present types.
Note: Previously run events may show in the import list before they are fully available. To ensure all files carry over properly, review the original webcast in full using the Preview URL before using it as an import source. Once you see the event play completely and properly in the preview, it is ready to be imported.
Login to Elite Presentations as a Producer.
The Elite Studio Recording Interface may ask for permission to use your camera and microphone - click Allow.
Open the Setup window from the Toolbar.
Click on Import Media.
Select the event you want to use and click Import Media. The entire presentation of the original webcast will copy into the new event.
If the media is audio, it will be placed into the Clip Bin and Timeline.
If the media is video, it will be placed in the Media Player and in the Timeline.
Once the presentation has been imported, click Publish. Wait approximately 10 minutes, then use the Preview URL to review the webinar in its entirety. Your new webcast is now ready for an audience.
