Interactive Video Technologies (IVT), an ecommunications software company, has announced the availability of MediaPlatform TeleCaster, an integrated component within IVT's enterprise software solution, MediaPlatform 3.0. By leveraging streaming services from Akamai Technologies, Inc., MediaPlatform TeleCaster enables business users to create and distribute live and on-demand audio webcasts for both small and large events.
IVT's self-service software is designed to allow companies to easily and frequently deliver interactive online presentations to their employees, customers, suppliers, and investors in order to increase productivity while reducing operational expenditures. Accessed from MediaPlatform's Dashboard, TeleCaster enables non-technical users to create, schedule, and deliver custom presentations that synchronize the encoded audio from a telephone call with nearly any medium, including PowerPoint slides, graphics, and interactive applications such as chatting, polling, and Q&A. With MediaPlatform TeleCaster, the audience listens through their computer speakers, not through an audio conference bridge.
