Applied Media Resources, Inc. has tracked how companies use their web conference software. Typically, organizations use web conference applications for one-to-few communications or when there is a need to share desktops. In addition to usage we noticed that when a web conference exceeds 300 plus participants the cost can get expensive. Our customers were looking for a way to increase the number of participants without having to pay more for additional user minutes for both the conference bridge and their web conference software.
We took a look at our product suite to see if we could provide a live audio presentation with synchronized slides without increasing the base cost due to additional participants. The answer was simple. We removed the live video aspect of the webcast and deliver audio only. With Applied Media Resources' live audio webcasts organizations can reach out to many thousands of global participants for one flat fee.
Live audio webcasting is an audio stream that is delivered directly to your audience's desktop. A synchronized PowerPoint accompanies the audio presentation. When the speaker changes the slide, it changes for the live audio webcast audience as well. Participants can also engage the speaker through our question and answer module. The only individuals that need to be on the conference bridge are the presenters. We dial into the bridge, pick up the feed in our broadcast center, and broadcast it out via the Internet to your audience. Our live audio webcasts are best suited for audio presentations in which large audience participation is expected. Typically our customers realize a cost saving when their audience base exceed 300 participants and a significant cost saving when their audience base exceed 1,500 participants.
