International Avaya Users Group Global Conference 2011 Goes Virtual With TalkPoint and Avaya web.alive

Live Video Streaming of Executive Keynotes and Immersive Web Collaboration Help Bring the Conference to More Members and Guests

NEW YORK, NY and BASKING RIDGE, NJ--(Marketwire - May 24, 2011) - TalkPoint, the global leader in audio and video webcasting, and Avaya, a leading global provider of business communications and collaboration solutions, today announced that the two companies have collaborated to bring portions of the International Avaya Users Group Global Conference 2011 to members and guests unable to travel to the event in Las Vegas.

TalkPoint's live webcasting solution and Avaya web.alive enabled International Avaya User Group (IAUG) members and other guests to view the IAUG Global Conference Opening General Session keynotes given by Avaya President and CEO, Kevin J. Kennedy, and Senior Vice President and President of Global Communications Solutions, Dr. Alan Baratz, from the comfort of their home or office desktop PCs.

"For the first time, Avaya's latest collaboration tools enabled more members to attend the International Avaya Users Group Global Conference," said Nic Sauriol, director, Avaya web.alive. "By collaborating with TalkPoint to offer members premier access to the opening keynote session of the Global Conference by streaming live video into Avaya web.alive, members were able to enjoy a more social, lifelike atmosphere that wouldn't have been possible without attending the actual event in Las Vegas. Talkpoint really delivered on quality and on seamlessly accommodating the requirements of video streaming into an immersive web collaboration environment."

"TalkPoint is happy to enhance the IAUG Global Conference by delivering live and on-demand webcasting presentations of the opening general session," said Nick Balletta, CEO of TalkPoint.
