Cinchcast has thrown its hat into the conference calling and virtual events space arena, and is off to a good start with the introduction of the Cinchcast Connect. This cloud-based platform lets companies host and share live-streamed webcasts, conference calls and events to thousands of participants, and boasts the potential to cut costs in half.

Cinchcast Connect streamlines and simplifies the process for making events, meetings and conference calls, facilitating an affordable method of setting up and streaming them.

It provides the option to host phone-based Q&A sessions without third-party operators, and can launch events with the click of the mouse.

Participants can join in over the phone or Internet, with no downloads or plug-ins required. The calls are kept secure with universal PIN code access, while still remaining scalable for thousands of viewers.

It’s a single solution that integrates host-controlled audio conferencing, streaming, slide-sharing and more. Also included are robust event management, reporting and publishing tools, allowing for complete control over one’s own event.

"Cinchcast Connect gives enterprise customers more control over their event experience and event-related expenses,” said Cinchcast CEO, Alan Levy. “With the click of a button, clients are up and running with everything they need for their live or recorded event. The conference bridge, Q&A management console, slides and online event stream; it's all integrated into one robust, browser-based solution.”

“In an environment where companies are looking to increase efficiencies and cut costs anywhere they can,” he added, “Cinchcast enables them to save time and improve the user experience, while reducing their event and conferencing expenses by up to 50 percent. Cinchcast is where innovation meets with significant cost savings."

Cinchcast Connect does seem to be very useful for videoconferences and event streaming at an affordable price. There are several options for conference calling and virtual events out there, but Cinchcast Connect’s scalability and features make it a worthwhile contender.

Definitely worth a look for live-streams and large events.

How often have you had a teleconference where—because of audio-related issues—you had difficulty in conducting an important meeting? Or in some cases, not even being able to make a clear connection at all? Curtiss Singleton, Director of Sales for the Americas at Revolabs, Inc., discusses conferencing solutions that not only provide unmatched audio quality, but ones that also “cut the cord”—giving you the freedom to move around the workspace. Doug Green, Publisher of Telecom Reseller, speaks with JP Carney, President and CEO of Revolabs, about the company, the importance of audio quality in UC, the compatibility of their products with various UC platforms, and their acquisition by Yamaha after one year. They discuss how clear audio for teleconferencing is the core element of true collaboration.
