What is OVEE?

  • OVEE is a shared media viewing experience – a powerful way to reach, connect and engage with audiences. OVEE stands for Online Viewing and Engagement Experience.
  • Created by ITVS and funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), OVEE combines quality HD media and livestream content with the community-building conversation of social media in a single-screen experience.
  • Through OVEE, WCNY and the Foundation have created an online screening Virtual Watch Party for our breakfast that bring together sponsors, teachers, students, presenters, award winners, and special guests to watch streaming media and chat live in a virtual theater.
  • The entire Recognition Breakfast, complete with presentations, introductions, award winners, and steaming videos and images of grant projects and more will be included in this online event using OVEE.
