6Connex, a Wholly Owned Subsidiary of Design Reactor Releases Virtual Experience Platform v3.0
- A More Robust and Feature-Rich Technology Platform -
CAMPBELL, Calif., Feb. 24 -- 6Connex, a wholly owned subsidiary of Design Reactor, announced the major release of version 3.0 of the Virtual Experience Platform. The Virtual Experience Platform enables businesses and individuals to connect and engage anytime and anywhere using a dimensional environment-like architecture that can be utilized for virtual tradeshows, events or conferences, and beyond.
The release of version 3.0 of the Virtual Experience Platform offers additional robust features that set a new industry standard for virtual event and tradeshow applications:
o Industry-Leading Social Engagement Live Chat System: 6Connex Live Chat System increases the average attendee interaction by almost 2000% in comparison to that of other virtual event technology providers. The Virtual Experience Chat System provides attendees unlimited ability to chat universally throughout any part of the virtual event, and increases user interactions whether it is with a one-to-one chat, group chat, moderated chat or chat with a booth representative. This advanced social engagement system lets event managers or subject matter experts control the chat environment by reaching out to additional attendees, determining who can participate, and transitioning administrative rights to another user. It allows event managers to view chat participant profiles, sort profile information by company and job title, and exchange vCards. Also, with one touch of a button, transcriptions of a chat conversation can be generated for output.
o Up to 30 Languages for UI Localization
To meet the growing demand for interactive global solutions, the Virtual Experience Platform v3.0 accommodates thirty international languages, including some languages not commonly required but in certain instances needed, such as Korean, Russian and Brazilian Portuguese. In addition to accommodating single and double-byte characters, its comprehensive Content Management System (CMS) allows visitors to find, organize, and consume localized content that is relevant to their interests. Any event administrator can select another language, once the first language is established, and generate localized templates on the fly. The CMS is fully capable of accepting any localized character set that then can be redisplayed online without any readjustment in order to create a seamless localized experience.
o Continuous, Modular Metrics Reporting System: The Virtual Experience Platform v3.0 offers continuous metrics reporting functionality that allows event managers the ability to drill down and track event activity down to the individual attendee level. In addition, the Metrics Reporting System has over 35 standard reports to choose from, and data can be easily exported into other CRM and sales force automation tools to assist in tracking marketing ROI for the virtual event.
o Manage the Virtual Event From Your Mobile Device
With the Virtual Experience Platform v3.0, event managers now can manage and edit the event conveniently from their mobile device. This allows an event manager to make changes on the fly from any location.
o User Preference-Based Content Recommendation System: Users have the ability to receive customized content tailored to the specific individual and their needs by self-selecting keywords that are associated to theme-based content uploaded in the Content Management System. This feature provides relevant content and information to the user in order to establish a unique event experience.
o Dynamic, On-the-Fly Configurable Exhibit Halls: Most virtual event technology providers offer the ability to dynamically configure booths, but the Virtual Experience Platform v3.0 has the ability to dynamically configure the entire Exhibit Hall and the booths. Because event managers are often challenged with last minute sponsor or exhibitor participation, the ability to instantly modify the Exhibit Hall to accommodate more participants is critical for event managers.
o Automatic Video Compression Conversion
The Virtual Experience Platform v3.0 CMS can take all common video formats and automatically convert the files into one format for use in the virtual event. A built-in compression engine automatically converts each video to the approved format for viewing without additional plug-in downloads. As part of the compression process, the compression engine automatically sets the audio level, data rate and pixel size for video content.
o Easy-to-Use Event Management Time Bracketing System: Understanding that event managers are faced with drop off levels of interest towards the last few days of an event, the Virtual Experience Platform v3.0 includes an easy to use Time Bracketing System that allows event managers the ability control the start and end times for when to introduce and end content at any point throughout the event. It provides the event manager more options to manage content promotions, event show flow and behaviors of the attendees.
o Universal Search
The 6Connex Virtual Experience Platform comes equipped with powerful search tools to quickly locate, view and download virtually any type of media--videos, podcasts, Webinars, PDF's and more. The search functionality allows users to find all materials in the system and sort by different content types on a specific subject.
o Integrated Webinars and Webcasts
For webinars and webcasts, whether on demand or live, the Virtual Experience Platform v3.0 features an integrated and seamless experience for event attendees so they stay longer within the event.
o Entitlement and Security Access
The Virtual Experience Platform enables security levels and permission access to key areas and locations in the event based on event role and responsibility. By setting up different levels of entitlement to specific areas throughout an event, event managers are able to control access to confidential and privileged information or create separate experiences for certain attendees at the event.
o e-Commerce Transactions
The Virtual Experience Platform has the ability for sponsors and attendees to cover the cost of their event by taking registrations online through any online payment transaction service provider. Having the flexibility to integrate with any online payment transaction service provider, the Platform has the ability to create either a subscription-based or shopping cart e-commerce experience for registrants.
o Flexible Platform for Custom Developed Add-on Features
6Connex is a scalable platform that can be easily customized with additional add-on features.
