InXpo Labs Cooks up Real World Testing Ground for Virtual Products

CHICAGO, IL and SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - February 22, 2010) - InXpo, the leading provider of virtual events and virtual business environments, today announced InXpo Labs, a testing and development center for customers, partners and InXpo to collaborate in the creation of new, highly interactive and engaging virtual environments.

InXpo Labs will provide a testing and development environment for integrating new technologies, proofs of concept for existing and prospective customers, and a hub where participants can interact with the technology and as a result, provide input for future improvements. Technology development and integrations from InXpo Labs will be on display at the Virtual Edge conference (February 22-23, 2010, 8 am - 5 pm PT) held in the Santa Clara Convention Center, Room 201. InXpo Labs creations can also be viewed virtually at InXpoLive@VirtualEdge.

"The InXpo Labs is an extension of InXpo's commitment to being a leader in technology," said Rich Hawkinson, Executive Vice President and co-founder of InXpo. "This cutting-edge think tank will foster creativity and the development of new tools to provide customers and partners with transformative virtual experiences that connect, engage and educate audiences, while delivering real business results."

InXpo will provide Virtual Edge attendees with a sneak peek of the next generation of virtual event interaction that will include fully immersive game environments and an improved user engagement with a virtual environment. Additional InXpo Labs developments that will be on display at Virtual Edge are the following:

  • Ustream Integration: Broadcasting from InXpo's room at the Santa Clara Convention Center, InXpo's "Virtual Guru," John Leahy, will stream live footage from the show floor via his Ustream channel.
  • Live Video Feed: Streaming live video from InXpo's demo room, virtual attendees will have the opportunity to join a group chat that provides virtual attendees the option of participating via video or text chat. Virtual attendees can engage with each other or an InXpo representative located on the show floor.
