IVT Launches Newest Version Of MediaPlatform

Jan 23, 2004

Interactive Video Technologies, Inc. (IVT), a provider of ecommunications software, has announced the launch of MediaPlatform 3.0, its integrated Web-based software solution for creating, managing, distributing, and measuring live and on demand ecommunication presentations. The latest version of MediaPlatform is intended to facilitate the creation of ecommunication presentations, including a wizard-driven interface, which provides for improved workflow and navigation when creating and managing presentations. For traditional webcasting, MediaPlatform 3.0 is designed to offer improved archiving, asset management, survey components as well as enhanced MediaPlatform Studio (for use with a USB webcam) and synchronization components, which simplify the recording and synchronization of audio and video files when combined with PowerPoint slides and interactive components such as polling, surveys, and question and answer.

Two new significant features also announced as part of the MediaPlatform 3.0 release are the MediaPlatform SlideCaster, which gives users the ability to create live, ad-hoc presentations with the use of a PowerPoint file as well as to invite remote viewers to the event via email and MediaPlatform TeleCaster, which offers users the ability to access Akamai's telephony integration for the streaming audio source when creating live audio webcasts.
