Review: Onstream Media Webcasting Service

This review is up on the Streaming Media website. Here’s the introduction.

Onstream Media’s webcasting service provides a soup-to-nuts system for broadcasting PowerPoint slides and talking-head video to a computer-based or mobile audience, with interactive elements such as Q&A, polling, and surveys, with registration facilities at the front end and analytics at the back end. The system can automatically transcode incoming Flash video for HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) delivery and exclusively uses the Akamai content delivery network (CDN) for public media delivery. To test the system, I ran two public webinars; both of them were technically flawless from Onstream Media’s perspective. If you’re considering a rich media broadcast, Onstream Media should definitely make your short list.
