This article explains how to use the pre-recorded media file in your webcasts if you have the Elite Studio Recording Interface.

Recording Offline and Uploading into ON24
As an alternative to recording in the Elite Studio Recording Interface, you can record your presentation offline and upload it into the system. You can upload either one presenter video .mp4 file or use .wav audio files. After the presenter media has been uploaded, match the recordings to your slides to create a complete presentation.
Note: Simu-live webcasts MUST be recorded AND published at least TWO HOURS before the scheduled start time. Elite Presentations will switch to live mode two hours before the set time, so NO CHANGES can be made to your webcast, including changing the start date/time, recording elements, choosing Rollover to Live audio, etc.
Using Video Files

Uploading Presenter Video
- Only one Presenter Video file is allowed per webcast. The file can be deleted or replaced as necessary.
- The Presenter Video file serves as the entire presentation, so you will not be able to use Presenter Video AND record in ESRI.
- Note: Downloading a Presenter Video file from the Elite Studio Recording Interface is not currently available.
Launch Elite Presentations and log in as Producer.
The Elite Studio Recording Interface may ask for permission to use your camera and microphone - click Allow.
Open the Setup window from the Menu and click on the Presenter Video icon then click to choose the file from your network, or drag the file into the Elite Studio Recording Interface.
While your Presenter Video file is uploading, finish setting up your Storyboard. Once the Presenter Video file is uploaded, click the toggle on to use the uploaded file for the presenter. Use the Replace button if you need to upload a different file.
Using Audio Files
You can import .wav audio files into your presentation. You can upload as many audio files as you need. You can also mix pre-recorded audio files with audio recorded directly in the Elite Studio Recording Interface.
Click on the Import button in the Clip Bin and find the file on your network. The .wav file will be placed into the Clip Bin and can be dragged onto the timeline and edited like an audio file that was recorded. The label of the imported file will be the same as the file name.
Note: If a stereo .wav is uploaded, it will be transcoded to mono.
Setting Marker Timings
Markers on the Timeline show you where your individual Storyboard elements (including slide animations) will be displayed during the event. The markers are automatically numbered based on their place in the Storyboard and will be equally spaced every 30 seconds by default. For example, if the marker is set at 01m30s, the element will show to the audience 1 minute and 30 seconds into the presentation
Once the presenter video file is uploaded or the audio files have been added to the Timeline, adjust the timings for all of your markers as needed. You can set the timings manually or capture them in real time.
Note: At least one slide must be uploaded for the webcast to begin streaming to your audience. This element should be at the 00:00:00 spot on the Timeline. Find more information on video-only webcasts here.
Option 1 - Click and Drag the Markers
Option 2 - Capture Timings in Real-Time
Publishing the Presentation
Although the presentation file will save automatically once the timings are set, the presentation needs to be published once every element has the correct spot on the Timeline.
Click on the first element in your storyboard/marker in the timeline (so the system knows to start your presentation there) and click Publish. A message will appear to confirm you want to publish.
Once the publishing process is complete, wait approximately 10 minutes, then use the Preview button in theElite Studio Recording Interface or the Preview URL to watch your entire presentation.
You can make changes to your presentation and re-publish as many times as necessary. Once the changes have been made, click Publish again. A message will pop-up asking if you want to publish over the existing presentation. Click Continue to publish.
