Watch our 2 minute video. 

Strategic Charity Auctions has Live Broadcast Technology to simulcast Professional Live Auctioneers and/or an Emcee as well as  live onsite or remote guest speakers with the ability to cut to pre-recorded videos and different live feeds all streaming on one website URL without requiring remote attendees to navigate to a different platform and utilize multiple logins.  Our primary cloud driven auction platform and live feed are proprietary and feature a real auction bid applet with record locking technology to accept bids in 200 milliseconds and never results in a tie bid. The Virtual “Paddle Raise” for remote attendees A.K.A “Fund-A Need” or cash donation appeal has its own applet where the donor selects the level of donation or specifies a custom amount. This component is run concurrently with the actual paddle raise of onsite, “in person” attendees at the location while all donations are acknowledged as they are offered whether from “the floor” or online.   Our chat feature is available to remote attendees to answer any question but never to negotiate bids or donations. Online attendees will always be aware of their position at all times in real time upon their devices. There are many different viewing options available for remote attendees. Online attendees can view and participate on only one device or enjoy a more robust experience if they wish to watch the live stream on a PC while bidding on their phone, or they can watch on a second monitor or browser while bidding on a pc. We even have a live stream URL available to be viewed on a smart TV while bidding can occur on any other device, it’s all about choices. Sound like fun? It is!
