Webcast Elite is ON24’s fastest growing product to date and is rapidly becoming a significant part of ON24’s overall product mix. Compared to the same quarter last year, the Webcast Elite event count is 336% higher. More than 300 of ON24’s customers, including SAP, Lithium Technologies and are using Webcast Elite globally.
The latest Webcast Elite release includes:
Localization. Facilitating the communications process for global teams, Webcast Elite now supports by default 11 languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Dutch, Portuguese, Chinese (simplified), Japanese and Korean. In addition, with a single selection, the audience-facing pages, including the registration page, lobby and even reminder emails, can be automatically set up in the language of choice.
Simu-live capability. The new simu-live (simulated live) capability enables webcast producers to run a pre-recorded online presentation as a live webcast, with presenters interacting live with audiences using chat and ON24’s Q&A widget. Customers value the simu-live capability because it increases flexibility, combining the benefits of a live webcast with the end-result certainty of pre-recording.
Certification widget. Also included in the current release is Webcast Elite’s new certification widget, designed for use in virtual Continuing Education (CE) applications. This new functionality makes it easy for learning professionals to check attendance and automatically score exams to ensure that certification requirements have been met.
