The following is a complete listing of our webcast features, which are available with any of our service plans.

Custom Webcast Player
Customer-branded browser window containing the interactive enhancements that the customer has ordered. If the webcast has been sponsored, Capital Reach will customize the interface to properly display the sponsorship branding and additional information. The Capital Reach webcast player supports Microsoft Windows Media Player and RealPlayer.

Custom Webcast Registration
Capital Reach offers customized registration with up to 30 questions. This open registration system allows any viewer to register and view the session. We also offer password-based registration that limits viewership to a customer-determined list. Our password protection also supports subscription and pay-per-view modes.

The collected registration information is made available from a password-protected website and is linked to viewing data.

A confirmation e-mail is sent to registrants along with system requirements. Other forms of e-mail messages such as "Thank You for Attending" are also available.

Custom Webcast Navigation
Customer-branded navigation page to organize access to a large number of sessions or speakers. This page, or set of pages, can be customized to the unique needs of integrating into the customer's public web site or learning system.

Sponsorship and Promotion Tab
A critical part to the success of any conference webcast is sponsorship. Sponsorship provides a valuable source of funding to allow organizations to make more sessions available to their constituency. In addition, it can allow webcasts to become another source of revenue for organizations by allowing on-site conference sponsors to extend brand awareness beyond the physical meeting site.

Indexing allows a viewer to seek to a specific point within a presentation without leaving the webcast player.

Synchronized PowerPoint Slide Presentations
Synchronized slides simulate the experience of an in-person PowerPoint Presentation placing an image of each slide in the webcast player and automatically changing the slide based on the audio/video presentation. Users may also be allowed to navigate slides manually. There is also a button to display a larger version of the image, which is useful for viewing detailed slides.

PowerPoint Slide Thumbnail Indexing
Thumbnail indexing provides a scrollable list of slide thumbnail images that a viewer clicks to advance to the point in the presentation when that slide is used.

Speaker Introductory PowerPoint Slides
Our introductory slides option uses a customer-branded slide as the first slide of each speaker presentation. This provides consistency across speakers when the PowerPoint presentations designed by the speakers carry differing designs and layout of introductory information.

Synchronized Speaker Photos-Audio
For audio webcasts, a speaker photo replaces the video image and changes with each presentation in a multi-speaker session.

Speaker Info
This feature displays additional information about the speakers in the session which may include presentation title, speaker title, and affiliation.

Note Taking
A user can send a note to themselves or a friend while watching a webcast without leaving the webcast player.

System Tester
An automatic system tester utility checks a viewer's system to ensure they have the required technology installed on their computer.

CD-ROM Publishing
To reach those viewers where the online delivery of a webcast is not optimal, the sessions can be published to a CD-ROM.

Testing and Dynamic Certificates
The Capital Reach testing feature provides online test taking, immediate feedback for incorrect (or all) responses, automatic grading, and the ability to generate a continuing-education certificate for passing scores. Test reporting provides aggregate and specific user details from a password-protected website. Customers can also purchase this feature as a stand-alone testing application without a webcast.

Question Submission
The "Ask a Question" features allow viewers to submit questions while watching a webcast. Questions are stored in the centralized database and can be forwarded to an email address. This is a popular feature in certain continuing education and training implementations where an expert resource is available to respond to viewers. A web-based tool is also available for customers who need to prioritize, filter, and respond to a high-traffic webcast session with a large number of questions.

Synchronized Transcripts (Captions)
An easy to read text transcript of the audio is synchronized with the presentation. This feature is especially popular where English is a second language of the viewer or presenter, in either case making the audio presentation more difficult to follow. Multi-language transcription is also available.

Keyword Search
Seeks to points in the webcast where specific keywords are mentioned. Search is a no-cost upgrade for all webcasts with synchronized transcripts.

Audience Surveys
Customer-branded viewer surveys collect feedback from viewers and report both aggregate and detailed results on a password-protected website.

Usage Reporting
Capital Reach offers detailed reports on public usage of the webcasts. Aggregate and monthly data is provided as well as data on each unique webcast view. The data is available through a secure password protected extranet website and is viewable as HTML or downloadable as Microsoft Excel.
