What is an Event Video?
An Event Video is a video with its visibility based on a set date and time. This feature is most popularly used to advertise and launch pre-recorded Webinars.
The Event Video Block generates multiple Blocks displayed at set schedules leading up to, during, and after the Video Event.
Customizing your Event Video Block will display all four Blocks to allow you, the administrator, to view the sequence as you edit. However, your page visitors will only see one Block at the appropriate time.

The Event Offset feature will delay the start of the Event by whatever amount of time you specify in the settings.
For instance, if you set the Event Offset for 3 minutes on an Event that starts at 10:00am, the Countdown Timer will be set to end at 10:03am.
