CHICAGO, February 21, 2012 –InterCall, a subsidiary of West Corporation and the world’s largest conferencing and collaboration services provider, today announced a new release of its webcasting platform, InterCall Webcast Studio. The platform has improved self–service, micro–site, mobile and multicasting capabilities, and gives companies multiple ways to connect with their targeted audiences for greater impact and business results.
Event planners, corporate communications teams, trainers, marketers and other users can now create and manage their own webcasts with much greater flexibility, control and speed than ever before. The new platform has a simple, easy–to–use reservation process and tight integration with InterCall Virtual Environments for cross–utilization.
"InterCall Webcast Studio is built to handle thousands of participants at once," said Mike Nessler, Executive Vice President of Event Services at InterCall. "It gives organizations a powerful platform for communicating with their stakeholders."
InterCall’s technology makes it easy for mid–size to large enterprises to create and broadcast impactful, rich media presentations on the web and connect with more people around the globe. The platform is an ideal solution for organizations that need to broadcast their messages to the widest audience possible for events such as investor relations calls, press conferences and other high–impact events. Webcasts can be broadcast live or archived for later playback, and can include basic desktop or high–end video.
"We have used InterCall Webcast Studio services to communicate to our members, industry stakeholders and the media, and the experiences have been impactful," said Liz Kay, Board Member, Healthcare Business women’s Association. "InterCall provides leading–edge capabilities, and we look forward to our continued relationship."
InterCall Webcast Studio automatically detects available bandwidth and switches to audio–only streams if video runs too slowly. Participants enjoy a better experience as a result. In addition, content can easily be reused in a Virtual Event with a single click.
