(Too Long, Didn’t Watch)
Here’s a summary of what was discussed in the announcement video:
The New WebinarJam is on its way. The first new technology deployment is close.
We’re rolling out the new features step-by-step.
We’ll start with “The JamSession Engine”. This Technology replaces Google Hangouts.
I’ll say again:
We are replacing the Google Hangout Meeting Room with our own tech.
The JamSession Engine will be WebinarJam’s NEW Virtual Meeting Room. This is where the presenters will gather, and where you’ll perform your Webinar Presentation.
During the Beta Phase, when you configure a Webinar, you can choose the JamSession Engine as an optional meeting place. Once Beta is complete, we will phase out Hangouts Completely.
There is no upgrade cost to current customers to use The JamSession Engine, either now, or when Beta is complete.
After the JamSession Engine is released, we’ll begin to roll out tons of new features. Here’s a list of what we talked about briefly in the video:
- The New Page Builder
- Password Protected Webinars
- Cloud-Based Slide Show Presentations
- Express Jam
- Smart Preferences
- Webinar Email Automations
- In-Webinar File Sharing
- More 3rd Party Integrations
- Inline Help
- Broadcast room layout control
- And much more
Andy slipped and said “JamCast”, which is actually another optional technology that lets you broadcast to your audience using our JamCast Engine, instead of YouTubeLive.
We hope to start rolling out The Jam Session Engine in about 2 weeks. Obviously, this is an estimate, but we’re working hard to make it a reality.
