FAIRFIELD, N.J., Nov. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Inception Company, a technology-driven engagement products and services company, is pleased to announce several enhancements to their Pando platform. Pando integrates an in-studio moderator or moderators, remote participants, a full studio production, and seamless onboarding support by live helpdesk staff to deliver superior engagement and the impact of an in-person meeting. The platform supports up to 60 participants or locations displayed on the 40-foot Pandorama video wall and up to 5,000 off-wall users worldwide.
Enhancements to the platform include:
Additional browsersupport including Microsoft Edge (when released by Microsoft, expected January 15, 2020) and Firefox. After adding these browsers Pando will support the default browsers on Microsoft Windows (Edge), Mac OSX (Safari), and iOS on iPad (Safari), as well as Firefox, and of course the world's most popular browser, Google Chrome.
Enhanced onboarding success using new pre-event screening tools that allow users and the Pando Event Support Team to identify issues easily, automatically, and to collaborate even more effectively to resolve any problems in the lead up to the Pando event.
Ability to transition participants between on-wall and off-wall roles. This new capability allows off-wall participants to become on-wall participants (and vice-versa) at any time during the event, allowing any of the up to 5000 off-wall participants to become fully interactive participants in the program using their camera and microphone.
Breakout rooms. Pando will support up to 10 fully integrated breakout rooms of up to six participants per room. Per-room moderators will be able to screen share to present slides and videos as well as control the room's presentation. Additional event facilitators can join individual rooms to observe and provide input.
Matt Giegerich, CEO of The Inception Company, commented on the plans for Pando, "From the beginning, we set out to create a platform that would fill the gap between traditional virtual meetings and live meetings. Our clients have responded with overwhelming support, finding that Pando gives them options never before available and they have been using Pando for a growing number of diverse meetings. We are committed to continuing excellence and are looking forward to offering several enhancements in the coming year."
"We are focused on elevating the easy-to-use engagement features of Pando," added Shaun Urban, President of The Inception Company. "As our clients continue to use Pando creatively, they have provided suggestions and recommendations of the additions they would like to see. Our roadmap includes both proactive product enhancements, as well as new features that address our clients' requests."
The above group of enhancements will be fully implemented by February 2020.
