ON24 Virtual Show for Mac
ON24 recently announced support for the Mac and Safari for its ON24 Virtual Show software service, an application designed to provide a virtual conference center for businesses to use as an alternative or compliment to a live exhibition. Through the Virtual Show, users are able to have ON24 custom-design a complete show floor for their projects, or are able to supply their own background images and artwork. Pricing for the ON24 Virtual Show is dependant on the services required.
Users can have the show created in a number of styles, such as a virtual entry plaza hosting the different venues of the conference, with the option for an informative "jumbotron" or key advertisers visible.
ON24 Virtual Shows can also have social aspects, with chat windows present at the various booths, press rooms, and virtual discussion lounges, among others. Company representatives can also actively discuss with their potential customers, or configure their status to be seen but not reachable without specific privileges.
Booths and other floor venues can be designed to contain virtual documentation, such as press releases, product imagery, flyers, PDFs, and more.
ON24 Virtual Shows are completely cross-platform, available for viewing on Mac, Linux, Windows XP, and Windows Vista.
