Webcast is a web-based and powerful communication tool using streaming video and rich media internet technology. With webcasting, the presenter, the teacher is introduced to the e-learner, presentations and videos are used for visual subjects. They allow presenters to reuse proven classroom live presentations and are useful in providing instructions for complex online activities.

Can be done through webcasts :

  • Launching of products, Interviews, meetings, research conferences, job training

A Webcast is a powerful multimedia experience - traditional video combined with slide layouts. Your audience watches presentations on demand or direct, with their favorite browser from any PC or Mac. And they control playback, choosing views that focus on the content most important to them.

We capture, encode and synchronize content from any video, audio and DVI/VGA devices your presenters choose to use. From laptops and tablet PCs to whiteboards and document cameras.
