Citrix Launches GoToWebcast and Beta GoToWebinar in North America

Posted by Techvibes NewsDesk

Citrix announced this week the launch of GoToWebcast in North America and Europe.

GoToWebcast provides users with a low-cost, self-service webcasting tool for up to 5,000 attendees, which allows organizations of any size save money and extend their communications globally, Citrix says. A subscription-based webcasting tool, GoToWebcast allows users to broadcast unlimited audio and video presentations to live and on-demand audiences of up to 5,000 viewers, including mobile devices, according to the company.

“Audiences are becoming increasingly dispersed as a result of mobile workstyles. It’s becoming ever more important for organizations to find new and engaging ways to connect with a geographically distributed audiences,” says Bernardo de Albergaria, VP of SaaS Products and Markets for Citrix. “Video is proven to make meetings more productive and attendees more involved and attentive."

The company also released a beta version of GoToWebinar with HDFaces supporting their 500- and 1,000-attendee plans, which at least one Canadian startup is impressed with.

“As a global survey company based in Ottawa, we sell to customers in 50 different countries around the world. Organizations we serve vary in size, making the tools we use to connect with our customers extremely important,” explains said Aydin Mirzaee, cofounder of the recently rebranded FluidSurveys. “GoToWebinar offers an end-to-end solution that makes the experience easy for the user and attendees. We’ve started to use the GoToWebinar HDFaces video feature for our weekly webinars with customers and it’s a key element to the webinars we run. When customers see the webinar host live and engaged, it delivers a much more impactful experience.”

HDFaces for GoToWebinar and GoToTraining deliver the same high-definition video capabilities already found in GoToMeeting, according to Citrix. "The entire Citrix portfolio of high-quality, video-enabled, collaboration tools creates a richer, more personalized experience to online attendees by bringing face-to-face video to their small, intimate team meetings, group training sessions and larger web-based events," the company says.
