-- New capabilities enable presenters to participate from any location, to any audience
LAKEWOOD, Colorado, June 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ACT Conferencing, a global leader in integrated conferencing solutions, today announced ForumCast, a new feature in its ConferenceCast managed video webcasting platform that integrates with many of the multi-device presenter capabilities of ACT's Forum conferencing solution. ForumCast allows different presenters to present webinars and webcasts from a variety of different devices -- including laptops and tablets -- using any combination of H.323, SIP, Skype or Google Talk. The integration of these capabilities with the feature-rich ConferenceCast platform creates a high-quality, easy-to-use and highly customizable conferencing solution with unprecedented flexibility for presenters to host high-quality webcasts from any location.
"By removing the limitations of where and how webcast presenters can participate in a webcast, ForumCast is changing the game in video webcasting," said Gary Iles, Vice President of Product, Marketing and Sales for ACT Conferencing. "ForumCast brings a whole new level of flexibility to presenters, allowing different presenters to connect via different devices and protocols, yet provides the same level of customization and branding in an easy-to-use, affordable platform. ForumCast is making innovative, high-quality video webcasting a reality for business customers connecting from the office or wherever they are on the road."
ForumCast provides incredible flexibility for presenters to lead webcasts from many video-enabled devices, while ensuring a high level of quality for webcast participants over the feature-rich ConferenceCast platform. ForumCast is available as a new feature in ACT's feature-rich ConferenceCast service, which provides significant customization and branding for businesses as they conduct webinars and webcasts. ACT's other solutions include reservationless audio and video conferencing, the Teem Unified Communication solution, event audio conferencing and webcasting, making it the industry's leading full-service conferencing provider.
"The Forum video service has proven to be very valuable internally and strategic in how we conduct business with our customers," said Sam Reese, CEO, Miller Heiman. "It has solved some technical and ease of use issues for our internal operations between offices and, more importantly, has allowed us to leverage geographically dispersed Miller Heiman resources to meet and communicate with our customers. Forum is a key factor in our process of transforming the sales behaviors and sales best practices of organizations globally, and we look forward to testing the ForumCast capabilities as part of the high-quality ConferenceCast video conferencing solution."
