TORONTO, April 3 /CNW/ - mDialog(TM), the leader in portable social video
technology, will once again partner with mesh, North America's premiere Web
conference in Toronto held this year on April 7th and 8th, to produce meshTV.
MeshTV's interactive hi-res web video coverage gives both attendees and fans
everywhere the ability to not just view, but to fully engage with mesh's full
lineup of internationally renowned keynote speakers, workshops and behind the
Attendees can tune-in to meshTV online virtually anywhere - whether it's
on the mesh website, on iTunes and - for the first time ever - on their
iPhones using the new mesh iPhone app developed by mDialog.
"meshTV is a great example of how we can transform any event, no matter
the size, scale or location to a online hub of connectivity," says Greg
Philpott, founder and president of mDialog. "As one of North America's leading
Web forums, mesh offers the perfect opportunity to demonstrate how our
technology so naturally supports events and conferences in order to take
audience engagement to a whole new level."
New mesh iPhone app available free for download:
For mesh 2009, mDialog has released a new mesh iPhone app - available
free for download from the iPhone app store as of Tuesday, April 7th. This
engaging new iPhone app will feature:
- Interactive video coverage: iPhone users can watch full videos and
provide feedback on all mesh keynote discussions, panels, meshU
workshops, and behind-the-scene action.
- Schedule updates: During the conference, attendees can stay current on
what's happening when - including any up-to-the-minute updates.
- Search: Simply by entering the speaker's name and/or topic, attendees
can immediately find a list of relevant video highlights.
- Places: mesh videos are geo-targeted so attendees know exactly where
the discussion is taking place.
- Favorites: Attendees can pull together their own 'best of mesh'
playlist for easy reference.
"Having our own mesh iPhone app is an ideal way for us to give attendees
access to all the behind-the-scenes interaction that makes mesh the
'unconference' it's become known for," says Rob Hyndman, mesh co-founder.
"Frankly, I'm not sure what amazed me more - the fact that mDialog was able to
build in such great interactivity into our mesh iPhone app - or that they
could roll it out in a matter of days."
