Interactive Video Technologies Releases Free, Do-It-Yourself Application for Video Webcasting, Podcasting


Thursday, January 18, 2007; 05:01 AM

Interactive Video Technologies (IVT), a leader in the production, management and distribution of live and on-demand webcasting, announced today the general availability of IVT Studio, a free, simple do-it-yourself video webcasting application that enables users to rapidly create, distribute and archive professional video podcasts and webcasts from their desktop. By easily combining and synchronizing video, audio, PowerPoint and screen captures with one-click publishing, anyone can use IVT Studio to create their own professional webcasts and podcasts with extensive tracking of viewer statistics. No training is necessary. Global organizations including IBM, NEC, several Fortune 100 companies and two large professional services firms have already successfully begun company-wide trials.

IVT Studio is ideal for both individuals and organizations of all sizes who are seeking to utilize web-video as a medium for creating clips for product launches and demos, business pitches, training, video résumés, technical demos and informational presentations to key internal and external audiences including customers, partners, employees and prospects.

“Companies are becoming aware of a culture changing paradigm shift in how employees expect to receive and send certain types of information,” said Greg Pulier, co-founder and CEO of IVT. “IVT Studio enables business users to create video content in a much more sophisticated way and put it out on the Web. The market for online video tools has grown tremendously in recent months—but what we are doing for video-creation and publishing is raising the bar for both organizations and individuals to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of their communications. No other webcasting tool allows users with very little media or technical skill to instantly create and immediately publish video presentations and podcasts that are engaging and professional. Simply put, Studio is a better way to present information.”

By automating the entire webcasting process, IVT Studio powers the creation of web-video at the desktop and instantly deploys clips and presentations to both select, targeted audiences as well as to the general public for viewing, all according to users’ preferences. IVT Studio includes advanced reporting capabilities that act as “Nielsen’s ratings-inspired” testimony, detailing specific information on who watched what clip, the duration of each view and how actively each user participated in the webcast. Additionally IVT Studio provides IT departments with general oversight capabilities.

“We have noted exceptional growth in the webcasting and streaming market in the past year,” reports Ira Weinstein, Senior Analyst and Partner at Wainhouse Research. “Self-service webcasting tools, like IVT Studio, will accelerate that growth by bringing video content creation within the reach of any PC-user; a move which could usher in a new wave of content creators among those previously intimidated by the thought of adding video to their presentations. With this release, webcasting veteran IVT has made it that much easier to video-enable business communications.”
