Fuze Launches Managed Webcasting for Global, Web-based Media Presentations
Advanced technology makes it easy for organizers to create and broadcast rich interactive presentations to thousands of attendees
Fuze, the leading UCaaS solution for the modern global enterprise, announced today the general availability of Fuze Managed Webcasting, a solution for organizing and broadcasting interactive presentations. With Fuze Managed Webcasting, today’s modern, global enterprises can reach wider audiences, lower production and broadcast costs, shorten time-to-market, and increase engagement among attendees. With Fuze Managed Webcasting, a dedicated event manager will lead all pre-event logistics and post-production follow-up, taking all the complexity out of large-scale IT productions, broadcasts, or meetings.
The solution delivers crystal-clear audio, video, and slides for a convenient and user-friendly attendee experience. From a desktop webcam to a professional production studio, Fuze Managed Webcasting can handle video feeds for live streaming, recording, or even international satellite broadcasting for 25,000+ participants at a time.
“Fuze Managed Webcasting gives customers simple but powerful customization capabilities and an intuitive user interface for an exceptional webcasting experience,” said Derek Yoo, CTO, Fuze. “The solution is perfect for situations with tens of thousands of participants such as marketing events, training and development, and product launches, where global reach and scale are needed. Additionally, we provide experienced event managers, technical support, and customer service, so organizers can focus on the content without fear of anything going wrong.”
According to AMX Harman, 20 percent of meetings start late due to meeting room technology issues. Furthermore, a Bain & Company study found that a meeting that starts just five minutes late costs a company eight percent of that meeting. Fuze Managed Webcasting makes it easy for participants to join from virtually anywhere, without the need to download and install additional software. The solution’s Engagement Index also allows organizers to define parameters and criteria to measure lead scoring, attendee engagement, content, and overall success of their event. Detailed analytics can track attendance, demographics, and behavior inside the presentation.
