Frequently asked questions

Webinar basics

Zoom Webinars allow you to connect with large audiences and share video, audio, and content from any location and device for better engagement. The simple interface allows you to plan and present professional webinars at an affordable price. Zoom’s high-quality experience scales to up to 50,000 attendees and supports 1,000 interactive video panelists for a more engaging and interactive experience.

Zoom Webinars are easy-to-use, reliable, and built to help you present your best self while making it super simple for your audience to join.
With “touch up my appearance” filters and studio effects, virtual backgrounds, and background noise suppression capabilities, speakers can share their video and present with confidence from anywhere (like your bedroom or basement) with Zoom’s high standards for quality, reliability and security.
One of the key benefits is that you can broaden your reach without complication and scale up to 50,000 attendees.

Setting up aZoom wWebinars is simple. It only takes minutes to set up through the Zoom web portal (just sign into zoom.us and click on the webinar tab on the left). You can add your brand to the registration, and customize your emails for each webinar, and immediately begin scheduling and hosting webinars.

Webinar features & functionality

Immersive virtual backgrounds (images, videos, presentation slides)
Session Branding
Webinar Reactions
Touch up appearance filters and studio effects
Light and noise controls
One-1 click HD video sharing
Q&A moderation controls and audience comments and up-votes

Zoom Webinars offer various roles with different permissions:
The host owns the webinar license and has the most control over the webinar in how it is scheduled, how it is set up, who can share video and audio, who is invited to listen and learn and what features are available. The webinar host can also assign alternative hosts who will have the same host controls.
The host can add a co-host as backup to help run and monitor the webinar session. The co-host has the same permissions as the host except scheduling and setting up the webinar.
The host can invite panelists who are able to share video, audio and screen during the webinar.
Attendees can share audio if allowed by the host to ask questions directly in the webinar.

No, concurrent live webinars are not supported by a single user license.

There are registration and attendee reports to help you track leads and segment for follow- up communications. Performance reports display engagement statistics on registration, attendance, and feedback. Reports capture the wWebinar’s Q&A, polling, and post-webinar survey results. All reports are exportable as CSV files.

When to use Zoom Webinars

Webinars are built for presenting polished content to a large audience, whereas Meetings are built for small to large team discussion and collaboration.
Large Meetings is an optional add-on for Meetings plans to scale up to 1,000 live interactive participants. In large meetings, all participants can share their audio, video and screen.
Webinars are used to host virtual presentations and broadcast them to a view and listen-only audience. This reduces the risk of disruptions and is a safer choice for large audiences who join mostly to listen and learn.

Zoom Webinars are great for single-session, one-to-many presentations. Zoom Events offers the capability to connect multiple webinar sessions and even combine with Zoom Meetings for longer, more interactive virtual experiences. Zoom Events includes complete event management with features like branded events hubs, event lobby for attendee networking, registration and ticketing, and enhanced reporting. Check out the Zoom Events FAQ here.

If you are hosting an event with multiple sessions and you would like to provide attendees a singular destination to register and attend that event. Zoom Events also allows for networking and sponsor integrations.

Registration & attendance

Zoom Webinars offer a lot of flexibility for handling registrations. There are three options for managing registrations:

Select registration not required, your invitees will be given a URL to join the webinar.
Select to automatically approve anyone who has registered for the webinar and Zoom provides them a confirmation email.
Manually approve attendees before Zoom sends out a confirmation email.

When setting up your event’s registration, you can add your brand logo to the registration page and the emails that get sent out. Zoom also makes it easy to add demographic fields and customized open ended or multiple-choice questions to the registration page.

Zoom Webinars integrate with many leading CRM systems allowing you to generate leads from participants that joined a webinar, or push contacts from your CRM system to a webinar registration page.

Yes, you can have unlimited registrations or you can set a registration limit but the total number of attendees who can join a webinar concurrently is based on your Zoom Webinars plan (100, 500, 1,000,etc.). Unlimited registrations is not available if you are using the PayPal integration to charge for tickets.

Participants of a Zoom Webinar include the host, alternative hosts, co-hosts, panelists and attendees. These roles are defined in detail in this Help article. The max capacity for the number of concurrent live attendees is defined by the Zoom Webinars license held by the host. Concurrent live attendees join the webinar in listen and view-only mode and cannot see other attendees. The number of concurrent panelists a Zoom Webinar can support is determined by the host’s Zoom Meetings license. If a host has a Large Meetings license, then they can host a webinar with up to 500 or 1000 panelists.

Attending Zoom Webinars is as straightforward as clicking on a link. Webinar attendees do not need their own Zoom account to join a Webinar. You can join through a browser or the Zoom client from any desktop, laptop, mobile device, or Zoom Room.

Webinar security

Zoom has a robust set of security features to meet the requirements for safe and secure collaboration. The Zoom Cloud is a proprietary global network that has been built from the ground up to provide quality communication experiences. Zoom incorporates security features, such as AES 256-bit encryption to ensure that login information and webinar data is secure. Customers in security-conscious industries, such as healthcare can use Zoom as it can enable Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act compliance (HIPAA). A Zoom Webinar host may choose to manually approve or decline anyone who registers as well as remove an attendee or lock a webinar to prevent additional attendees from joining once the webinar has started. For more detailed information about Zoom security, visit https://zoom.us/docs/en-us/privacy-and- security.html

Yes, you can use Zoom’s hybrid cloud service – known as the Zoom Meeting Connector – to deploy meeting communication servers within your company’s internal network. User and meeting metadata are managed in the public cloud while the Webinar is hosted in your private cloud. All webinar traffic including video, voice, and content sharing goes through the on-premise Zoom Meeting Connector. Zoom Meeting Controller can be deployed onto any virtualization platform. Contact sales to learn more.

Zoom Webinars plans are defined based on the number of people joining concurrently. Zoom Webinars start at $40 per license per month for 500 people (requiring a Zoom Meetings license).
