iBEAM Introduces Activecast Webcasting Platform
iBEAM (http://www.ibeam.com) introduced Activecast, an interactive webcasting platform featuring audio/video and slide presentations and graphics.
The Activecast bundles interactive webcasts for live and on-demand webcasts that lets businesses quickly offer broadcasts on the fly. It offers chat, streaming audio, graphics, slides, event management, archiving, audience measurement and distribution over iBEAM's network.
"We believe the Activecast platform represents an exciting, innovative way to combine the real-time interactivity of the Internet with the high-fidelity streaming capabilities of the iBEAM Network," said Peter Desnoes, CEO iBEAM Broadcasting. "These solution bundles are unique within the industry and represent an effective, easy-to-implement solution for businesses to take advantage of the power of interactive webcasting."
Lotus, an IBM subsidiary, is already a customer of Activecast. It used it to produce a webcast of Lotusphere 2000, its trade show.
Activecast came from development in its acquisition of webcasts.com.
