HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 19, 2013) - Today from the Streaming Media West conference, Watchitoo released the latest version of StreamingPro, a cloud-based video collaboration platform that powers some of the world's leading live events, webinars and broadcast experiences. The enhanced StreamingPro offering is ideal for businesses and brands seeking deep interaction with a global online audience in real-time.

StreamingPro is an embeddable video platform that allows the audience to become part of the show through interactive features, such as multi-streaming video chat, live polling, and Twitter, Facebook and text chat. The latest version features a new, intuitive design that makes it easy for presenters and participants alike to watch and engage in live discussions through high-definition video and shareable content. In addition, new multi-language capabilities and high-definition recording brings an enhanced event experience to viewers around the world.

"StreamingPro allows anyone from small businesses and start-ups to large enterprise companies and networks to produce professional webinars, live events and interactive online programming," said Rony Zarom, founder and CEO of Watchitoo. "As we see at Streaming Media West, brands aspire to reach audiences in unique ways. We are thrilled to provide a platform that helps businesses better engage with their audiences, extend their reach and provide new revenue streams while maintaining their branding."

StreamingPro's new powerful production tools drive meaningful, effective events for brands. Presenters are able to manage audience video feeds, drawing engaged questions and discussion from up to 25 participants simultaneously. Some of the key features include:

  • Cloud-Based Content Channels - Hosts auxiliary materials for live, on-screen annotations or post-show reference. As a result, presenters and participants have easy access to documents that enrich the live event experience.
  • Clickable Layers - Provides brandable on-screen calls-to-action via live links and buttons. These give hosts and sponsors customized in-event opportunities to re-market to event attendees.
  • Branding Customization - Enables clients to customize the design and implementation of a brand-specific video interface so that the brand experience is seamless to the end user.
  • Enhanced Polling - Allows previously-designed questions to be administered to an audience with downloadable results for post-event analysis. This provides hosts with current information on viewer engagement, comprehension and attitudes.

StreamingPro powers some of the world's leading online events, including live after-shows for Bravo TV's Watch What Happens Live and Lifetime's Project Runway as well as live streaming of the 1776dc Challenge Cup and TEDx Lower East Side.
