EMERYVILLE, Calif.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--ConnectSolutions LLC, a leading provider of web
collaboration solutions, today announced Podium 2, a breakthrough webcasting solution that enables organizations to
actively engage audiences online with high definition experiences - without the technical barriers usually associated
Podium 2 has a number of compelling new features including:
l Announcements: Event producers can curate broadcast-quality, targeted messaging to an audience, helping
engage them in the presentation. Event producers can reinforce the presenter’s message, show graphics,
charts, and provide links and document downloads in the flow of the presentation.
l Scratchpad: This feature enables viewers to take individualized notes within Podium, save them as a PDF or
distribute them via email. Instead of having to tab away from the webcast to take notes in a separate
application or on paper, viewers remain focused on the event and message. Notes are time-stamped, so
viewers can easily return to noteworthy parts of presentations.
l Video Responses: Participants can record feedback about an event to convey thoughts and ideas like never
before in webcasts. Video responses provide rich, multimedia feedback about the event content, while
promoting a sense of community among event audiences.
l Podium Events Guide: Customers can combine the power of interactive live events with a web-based
Events Portal to view live and on-demand broadcasts. Viewers download information and submit questions
before the event begins, and leave comments when it ends, extending the relevance and reach of webcasts.
Upcoming or in-progress events can be promoted to encourage repeat viewership and attract new audiences.
