ReadyTalk, a provider of audio, web conferencing and webinar services, announced the availability of a new feature – video clip playback, enabling customers to play short pre-recorded video clips during live webinars.
Incorporating video clips into webinars increases engagement and makes communication with the audience more effective. It allows companies to highlight previously developed videos, such as product demos and customer testimonials, during a webinar or training session.
“We often use video segments for employee training, but our previous solutions were not ideal. In the past one of our options was to mail DVDs to all of our remote employees, which was costly and slow. Additionally, other conferencing services required participants to join our meetings up to an hour early in order to completely download the video and presentation for playback, which wasn’t efficient for presenters or employees,” said Marcos Morales, Regional Trainer for PSAV. “With ReadyTalk we can maintain a continuous presentation flow and present slides and video clips without changing interfaces or tabs. It’s not only seamless, but effortless for presenters as well as an extremely effective way for us to communicate and deliver content.”
ReadyTalk’s video clip playback feature includes:
A one-step upload process that takes the headache out of sharing video clips
Ability to upload many standard audio and video file types
Media management library for storing up to 10 files
Smooth and reliable video playback for attendees on any platform
Insert videos alongside slides and polls for seamless content flow
Participants experience the video in real-time with no downloads
When recording the session, video is captured just as it is presented during the webinar including any pauses and voice-overs from the presenter
“The upload-and-convert strategy ReadyTalk uses ensures smooth, uniform and reliable playback on all supported platforms with minimal buffering, which maintains the viewing experience,” said Paul Carollo, product marketing manager, ReadyTalk. “The ability to repurpose existing video assets, such as a commercial or customer testimonial, improves the ROI on that content while providing an engaging audience experience.”
Video clip playback is free and available for all ReadyTalk web conferencing or webinar customers.
