InterCall Upgrades Virtual Events iPad App

Free Application Now Provides Full Access and Interactivity to Mobile Attendees of Webcasts and Virtual Environments

CHICAGO, September 24, 2012 – InterCall, a subsidiary of West Corporation and the world's largest conferencing and collaboration services provider, today announced the release of upgrades to its mobile application portfolio, Virtual Events, for the Apple iPad.

Virtual Events for Apple® iPad®, available through the Apple App Store, provides attendees with multi-content views that have become the standard in world-class webcasts, enabling viewers to see video, slides, and interactive features on a single screen. Key to this capability is the way the new InterCall mobile app was designed not simply to stream content, but to fully support the interactive features in webcasts and virtual environments. It also will take advantage of the native navigation features of the iPad, such as scrolling and pinch zooming.

"IDC is predicting that mobile workers will make up 37 percent of the global workforce by 2015," said Mike Nessler, Executive Vice President of Event Services at InterCall. "That means products have to evolve to meet the growing demand. Virtual Events for iPad offers all the functionality of our desktop webcasting and virtual environment products, and even retains the branding and customization, so mobile users achieve the same experience they would expect on a wired connection in the office. InterCall is the only provider that offers this level of sophistication and utility in a mobile app."

With InterCall Virtual Events for iPad, webcasting users receive:

  • Secure login
  • Automatic bandwidth detection and adjustment
  • The ability to participate in polls and view results in real time
  • Full access to live text Q&A sessions
  • The ability to chat with event administrators or other users
  • The same high-quality user experience they receive on a desktop for live and on-demand webcasts

With InterCall Virtual Events for iPad, virtual environment users can:

  • Navigate fully and easily through the environment
  • View live and on-demand webcasts
  • Interact with other visitors in the Networking Lounge
  • Chat with booth reps
  • Participate in discussion forums
  • Access all on-demand content

Virtual Events for iPad works on all versions of the iPad running iOS 4.3 and above. It is compatible with WiFi, 3G and 4G connections. For a complete list of features and to download the application, visit
