hosting zoom meetings for at least 60 participants through the same wifi...


dear people,


we are a group of artist that is working on an event that would like to combine zoom experience with a live physical co-presence of a larger group of people. In other words we would need that a group of 60 people/audience is able to access zoom session while sitting together in a same room. Problem that we are encountering is that we are imagining large group of participants hooking up to zoom through the same router/wifi connection. The connection should be strong and stableenough to host 60 people in a same zoom session from one location, through the same wifi connection and allow hosts to share screen and stream audio and video with everybody. Is that possible and do you have any advice how to go about it. It is an urgent question and we would really appreciate some feedback about it. Thank you in advance!
