Avacast Corporation develops the world’s best webcasting software for distance learning, business-to-business communication, and internal training. With over 40 years of internet broadcasting experience between its founders, Avacast’s first employees have been veterans of educational webcasting, drawn from pioneering companies such as Rotor Communications, Digital Planet, iXL, Bent Media, and Keane Consulting.
The Avacaster Webcasting Platform is truly unique: no other webcasting system works in both Netscape and Internet Explorer, on both Windows and Macintosh computers. As such, it’s perfect for mixed-use environments, and especially well suited for colleges and K-12 institutions where cross-platform considerations are a daily reality. And since it runs inside the web browser, it seamlessly integrates with your existing web site.
Avacaster has delivered quick company meetings, day-long investor relations conferences, and semester-long college courses. It scales from a handful to many thousands of users. And unlike many competitors who make similar claims, Avacaster has actually been used for large live events. In fact, Avacaster is the technology behind some of the largest webcasting events ever held. And more than once Avacaster has come to the rescue when a competitor’s product has failed in the field.
Drawing on years of experience in both webcasting and video production, the Avacast team designed a simple yet powerful administration system that allows total control of a live webcast with minimal headaches and fuss. Frustrated by other companies’ products? So were we. That’s why we spent a year designing, developing, and user testing our software: to ensure that Avacaster would be a generation ahead of its competition.
Need more help behind the scenes? Avacaster scales to any number of moderators, who can be located anywhere in the world, without any configuration or preparation. Need to support more end users? Avacaster is available in a variety of configurations to support anything from a small classroom to a 10,000 user event – and multiple Avacasters can be linked to support even more. Want to archive your event? Avacaster automatically produces event archive files, so your webcast is available as video-on-demand immediately after your live event ends.
