Automated signal acquisition and no required hardware allow users to broadcast audio and video presentations in the cloud with ease
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
TalkPoint, the leader in global communications technology, specializing in browser-based audio and video webcasting, today announced Convey, the first SaaS-based, self-service webcasting tool at the 2012 Streaming Media conference. Convey is a 100% browser-based webcasting product that helps businesses deliver enterprise-level webcasting presentations with the use of an automated signal acquisition from a VCU, encoder, webcam or telephone line.
With 14% of companies already utilizing a SaaS solution as their primary platform for online video implementation (IMS Enterprise Web Communications Survey, First Quarter, 2011, 1002 respondents), the growing webcasting market requires a platform for producing professional quality, scalable and cost-effective webcasts with no training required.
“The roll-out of Convey represents a significant expansion in TalkPoint’s offerings for the business webcasting market,” said Steve Vonder Haar, senior analyst with Wainhouse Research. “With this hosted solution, TalkPoint moves beyond its traditional role of managing online event services and arms its customers with a technology platform that weaves online audio and video more thoroughly into the fabric of day-to-day business.”
Convey allows users to:
•Produce do-it-yourself, enterprise-quality webcasts in five easy steps
•Use automated signal acquisition from a VCU, encoder, webcam or telephone line
•Broadcast audio or video presentations to both live and on-demand audiences of up to 10,000 viewers
•Utilize a mobile delivery option for connectivity on-the-go
•Deliver a webcast to PC, Mac, smartphone or tablet via a single URL
•Customize event content with a robust self-service editing studio
“Convey was designed to leverage the most popular features of our webcasts from a vast set of functionality developed over the last decade,” said Nick Balletta, CEO of TalkPoint. “With direct feedback from our clients, we’re proud to offer the first SaaS-based self-service webcasting product that’s not only simple to use, but doesn’t forgo the interactivity and scale businesses require.”
