Blue Jeans Network has unveiled Primetime, an interactive online events service designed to connect thousands of participants through large-scale video conferencing.
“When we met with our customers, we saw so many situations where executives, educators, media companies, and so many others wanted to interact with their audiences in an easy, organized, and controlled fashion, but were frustrated with the one-way nature of traditional streaming technology,” said Stu Aaron, CCO at Blue Jeans Network. “We saw an opportunity to redefine a market and provide the easy, open, interactive experience that Blue Jeans is known for, in a service designed for large-scale events.”
Blue Jeans says Primetime is the only video collaboration platform of its type that gives multiple presenters the power to engage with thousands of viewers, and promote any of these viewers to active participants in real time. The service has been in trials with customers in the business, education, technology sectors and more, since September. It will be generally available in the first quarter of 2015.
