Zoom Test Kitchen - open invitation


Hello everyone,


I will be hosting the "Zoom Test Kitchen" today, Friday, October 29, at 2PM CST / 7PM UTC. I will be standing-in for regular host, and show founder, Jeff Widgren.


The Zoom Test Kitchen in another external Zoom-related Community. It is a "resource dedicated to Zoom Admins, Zoom Users, and Zoom Producers from around the world", "providing a test bed, for real-world Zoom results".


The Zoom Test Kitchen is held on Zoom, every week, on Friday.


You can post questions, provide answers, and network with others.


You are welcome to join - to watch or participate.


Register to attend the Zoom meeting here:


You can watch past episodes at


If you plan to participate, please familiarize yourself with the format of the show by watching some snippets on YouTube.


The Zoom Test Kitchen often features guest presenters from Zoom. There have been past presentations from, for example, the Global Strategy Lead for Zoom Events, and the Manager of Event Specialists at Zoom, . Both of those presentations can be found on the YouTube Channel above.


The Zoom Test Kitchen has also worked closely with ZoomOSC and ZoomISO - products from Liminal Entertainment Technologies, for integration with Zoom. This may be of intertest to anyone using Zoom for Production pipelines or Virtual Event Production. & and;


Here in the Zoom Community, I have also previously mentioned another external Zoom-related community called "Office Hours":


A number Office Hours members also collaborate with, and participate in, the Zoom Test Kitchen - and vice versa. The two together provide great coverage into the wider world of Zoom Virtual Production, Hybrid and Digital-First Events, and just simply producing great results with Zoom.


I, personally, try to cross-pollinate ideas and solutions between communities.


In today's Zoom Test Kitchen, we will be discussing the new features in Zoom 5.8.3, and the release of "Conference" in Zoom Events - which allows for multi-day and multi-session conferences in the new Zoom Events.


We will also cover other general Zoom-related discussion and cover the questions of the day!


Again - feel free to join - today Friday, October 29, at 2PM CST. Or any Friday.


Drop any questions into the Meeting or post back here with any comments.
