ON24 Webcast Elite Continues to Gain Momentum

September 3rd, 2013

Enhanced Localization Accelerates Worldwide Growth

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – Sept. 3, 2013ON24, Inc., the global leader in webcasting and virtual communication solutions, today announced that Webcast Elite, do-it-yourself webcasting for the business user, remains its fastest-growing product ever, with global adoption driven by new features that include localization enhancements to Presentation Manager XD, ON24’s next-generation presentation interface.

Compared to the same quarter last year, the event count for Webcast Elite is 228% higher, and Webcast Elite has rapidly become a significant part of ON24’s overall product mix. More than 350 customers, including SAP, Google, Amazon, Rosetta Stone and are now using Webcast Elite worldwide.

Facilitating the communications process for global teams, Webcast Elite now supports by default 12 languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Turkish, Dutch, Portuguese, Chinese (simplified), Japanese and Korean. With the latest release, Presentation Manager XD is also now localized in 12 languages. When logging into Presentation Manager XD, the presenter simply chooses the desired language for all messaging and menu labels from the language drop-down menu.

Enhanced Screen Share Functionality
In addition to expanded localization support, Webcast Elite now has major enhancements in screen share functionality, for both the presenter and audience. Viewers now have a seamless experience—they can view a screen share feed in the slides window of the webcast console, not as a separate browser window. In addition, the screen share enhancements also make it easier for Webcast Elite presenters to set up and run screen share within Presentation Manager XD.

“ON24’s localization efforts fit perfectly with our long-held belief that we need to put control in the hands of the user,” commented Jayesh Sahasi, Chief Product Officer and CTO for ON24. “We believe that our user deserves tools so well developed that they in effect become invisible, removing the barrier between the presenter and the audience and enabling both to focus on the message and content. This mantra is what underlies everything we offer, from our industry-leading Webcasting Platform 10 console to our recently launched performance benchmarking tools.”
