Watchitoo, a provider of embeddable, live multistreaming platforms, announced a series of enhancements
to its online meeting and collaboration platform.
Watchitoo’s collaboration platform allows up to 25 meeting participants to collaborate in a virtual video conference environment, around nearly any form of rich media (like PDFs, PowerPoint presentations, documents, photos and HD video clips), from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection. The platform allows this rich media and video collaboration to be viewed by audiences of thousands of people.
With the newly released enhancements, the platform has new customization features and it is even easier to integrate multiple HQ video streams to any online event.
The company said that with its platform one can get the in-the-same-room feeling by engaging in a truly interactive video experience with multiple colleagues — no matter their latitude and longitude — and no downloads of any kind. While other platforms allow users to simply broadcast one message or one video to a large audience, no one else lets a community interact and collaborate around rich media like Watchitoo’s platform, according to company officials.
Some of the enhancements released by company are the Layout Manager, software that has the ability to automatically adjust size and position of streaming content so that additional feeds can be added to the session; custom embed sizes which allow organizers to dictate and preview the size of the Watchitoo player, and 2G file size that accommodates the industry’s largest uploadable video size.
Officials with the company said that by adding video, collaboration and multistreaming, Watchitoo has changed the character of the online event – from a one-way communication, to a collaborative means to engage communities. With this new functionality, event organizers have a the industry’s most powerful set of tools at their disposal that allow them to deliver a visual experience of their online events that rivals broadcast television.
