SAN FRANCISCO, CA – October 22, 2009 – ON24, Inc., the global leader in webcasting and virtual event solutions, announced today that it will be providing full support for webcasts and virtual shows on Windows 7. The launch of Microsoft’s Windows 7 operating system has been one of the most anticipated technology introductions of the year.
In addition, ON24 is announcing a beta program for select customers to execute online webcasts using Silverlight, Microsoft’s plug-in for creating rich interactive Web applications. “ON24 already offers Flash webcasts,” explained ON24 Chief Technology Officer Jayesh Sahasi. “With the introduction of Silverlight, we will be able to supplement the use of proprietary media players like RealPlayer and Windows Media Player with next-generation technology—for even greater reach and functionality.”
