Reston, VA – March 16, 2009 – When companies are hosting an audio, Web or video event, webcasting or streaming gives them an easy, cost-effective way to reach anyone around the world with Internet access. This is why Communiqué, the World Leader in Conferencing, has launched a new partnership to enhance its offering of streaming services to their customers.
Through a strategic partnership with ON24, Inc., a global leader in webcasting and virtual events solutions, companies will now be able to stream their marketing events, training sessions or company announcements. The agreement also enables Communiqué to become a one-stop shop for all types of streaming services, with on-site support and broadcast quality production services for live events.
“Streaming allows companies to reach a wider audience.

Added Sharat Sharan, President and CEO of ON24, “When it comes to large group communication, webcasting is the best solution to reach this audience size. Streaming extends the advantages of conferencing to anyone who has an Internet connection. Customers who need to reach a large and geographically-dispersed audience will benefit the most.”
