reducing environment-damaging air-and-road trips via conferencing. At the same time they are also seeking ways to bolster productivity through these solutions.
ILinc, which provides Web and video conferencing software and services, has launched the iLinc 10 Fall Release aimed at achieving both needs. These include:
- Seamless Recording Process. ILinc users can now configure any session to be recorded automatically, eliminating the need to set up separate systems and any worry about forgetting to capture the session content. With the new audio connection tool, session leaders can also be confident that the iLinc recorder is successfully connected to the audio portion of the event.
- Streamlined Editing and Distribution. With access to the easiest-to-use online editing tools on the market, session organizers are able to maximize the value of recorded sessions, replaying them as asynchronous learning content or making them available to potential customers. And anyone who wants to view an iLinc recording is not forced to install a proprietary player.
- Robust Media Sharing. Event moderators and instructors can keep their virtual audience engaged by displaying and controlling such as pausing and forwarding Flash files, Flash Video and YouTube videos through iLinc's Media Link functionality.
- Relevant Integrations. With iLinc 10, companies can tie their web conferencing initiatives to other key systems for greater revenue potential. The brand-new Social Networks Integration allows session organizers to quickly promote their online events, as well as their cost savings as measured by the patented iLinc Green Meter, to existing Twitter and Facebook networks.
“The iLinc 10 Fall Release reflects how the web conferencing industry has grown in recent years,” said Frank Gartland, iLinc’s vice president of products, in a statement. “Even though the demand for real-time, Web-based communication and collaboration increased with the economic downturn, many organizations are finding that meeting and training online is more than just a way to cut operating expenses. In fact, it has become clear that the right web conferencing solution increases organizational productivity and maximizes revenue potential. With this new release, iLinc users have access to a host of new features that empower them to actually solve business problems.”
Roopam Jain, principal analyst for Conferencing and Collaboration at Frost & Sullivan, believes that this release continues iLinc’s tradition of innovative user experience improvements.
“ILinc’s solutions reduce the technical complexities that leaders face when preparing for and delivering formal virtual sessions,” Jain said. “By removing the barriers to hosting high-impact online events and training sessions, iLinc ensures that organizations will leverage their full web conferencing investment and drive revenue as a result.”
