Live Coverage of Techweek Los Angeles to Be Streamed via BigMarker Platform Leveraging Advanced WebRTC Technology

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - November 11, 2014) - BigMarker (http://www.bigmarker.com), the platform for learning and sharing through cloud-based innovative web conferences, today announced a partnership with Techweek offering free, live coverage of Techweek Los Angeles to a global audience. This event will be the first ever to be hosted using WebRTC, a browser-based technology that has been built out using a proprietary methodology and can be accessed directly from the BigMarker site.

BigMarker has simplified how its video conferencing technology is accessed using WebRTC, allowing users to quickly and seamlessly login and view real-time video of Techweek LA's incredible lineup of panels, summits, and keynote sessions. In this new partnership with Techweek, BigMarker will bring the conference and its speakers directly to those who are unable to physically attend, regardless of their geographic location.

"This partnership presents an exciting opportunity for us," said ZhuSong Mei, BigMarker Founder and CEO. "Just as it is Techweek's mission to enable innovation ecosystems, BigMarker aims to provide tools that facilitate both collaboration and conversation that drives innovation. We support Techweek in its mission and are proud to introduce this initiative to bring a global audience access to the incredible content that will take the stage at Techweek LA 2014."

BigMarker will broadcast all Techweek Los Angeles content free of charge during the conference on November 20-21, 2014 at bigmarker.com/techweek. Virtual attendees can tune in for conversations led by influential leaders, entrepreneurs, and innovators such as Adam Goldenberg (Founder & CEO, JustFab), Jane Poynter (CEO, World View Enterprises), Scott Painter (CEO, TrueCar), Elliot Kotek (Co-founder, Not Impossible Labs), and Laura Goldberg (CMO, LegalZoom).

Select sessions from Techweek LA 2014 will also be available following the conference as recorded, shareable content. A continued partnership will allow a global audience to take a front row seat to Techweek's unique, impactful programming at its other events in Chicago, Detroit, Miami, and New York.
