Tech advances in 2011
MONROEVILLE, Pa., Dec. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Concert-oh, Chorus Call's answer to social networking, hit many milestones in 2011. The web conferencing site added desktop sharing features, Facebook and Twitter integration and entertained users during two town hall meetings hosted by a National Football League star.
While unwavering sound quality continues to set the Concert-oh apart from the competition, it's the streamlined user interface that also garners many accolades.
In September, a political candidate used the site for a press conference.
In November, Pittsburgh Steelers Defensive End Brett Keisel hosted two town hall meetings, taking questions from fans using a virtual hand-raising tool on the Web site.
Fans asked Keisel, who was visible with a Web camera, about issues ranging from hunting deer and quarterbacks to his beard-grooming habits and family atmosphere in the Steelers' locker room.
Concert-oh also made technical advancements by adding a desktop sharing feature to go along with photo and document sharing.
"More groups of individuals want to share more data had have more collaboration in this automated age," said Chorus Call Technical Director Joe Heuler. "It makes for a more productive environment you can share data at the same time you share audio."
With Chorus Call's world-class conferencing capabilities, callers can enjoy unparalleled audio quality at Concert-oh. Currently, the site can simultaneously service web cameras, audio conversations, document sharing, text chatting and more from separate locations. Users of the site can experience web-based virtual meetings, with multiple attendees, from any computer.
"Concert-oh helped bring the employees we had in our remote offices to our daily news meeting without them having to leave their office. It helped them feel more connected to the rest of their work group," said Barbara Elliott, technical director for the Virginian Pilot newspaper and Web site, www.pilotonline.com.
