Different Types of Webinar Tools for Business Presentations

You have many choices when it comes to webinar tools, but not all are built alike. In fact, they take several forms. Make your choice easier by learning about the different types and narrowing the field accordingly.

Server-Client Webinar Software

As the name implies, server-client webinar software involves installing software on a server and client computers. This type of software is often used internally by businesses who want to create a private enterprise YouTube / webinar experience.

Web-based Webinar Tools

Web-based webinar tools are far more common than server-client software as webinars by their nature are Web-based. That said, some Web-based webinar tools do require participants to download and install webinar viewing software (Source: webinar tools from MediaPlatform). Others are completely browser based.

Screen-sharing Tools

Many screen-sharing tools exist. They allow users to share their computer screens remotely. These tools are ideal for demonstrating software or showing PowerPoint presentations. However, they tend to be fairly limited in that sharing is one-way and video isn’t necessarily supported. You may not be able to record your screen-sharing sessions, either.

Social Videoconferencing Tools

You may be familiar with Skype, FaceTime, Facebook, and Google Hangouts. Each of these tools offers basic video conferencing, but with limits. For example, only 10 people can participate in video calls on Google Hangouts. Skype supports up to 25 participants. FaceTime is limited only to those with Apple devices.

Enterprise Video and Webinar Solutions

Whether you want to hold internal webinars, public webinars, create interactive webcasts, or create an enterprise YouTube channel, webinar tools exist specifically for corporate use. These tend to be robust solutions that support desktop and application sharing, file sharing, audio and video, text-based chats, and recording and replaying. Enterprise webinar tools are offered as either client-server software or as Web-based solutions.

Logo Design Process

I was planning to start a new job consultancy after a couple of months and I was on the verge of doing all the necessary ground work required to make it happen. I rented out an office space, made one of my best friends as my business partner and also hired a couple of experienced and fresh executives. There was still two more thing that were the most important left out undone and it was the logo designing and a caption or mission statement of my company. The name of my company sounded energetic and vibrant and hence I wanted the logo to reflect the same. I checked out online for some logos and came across an excellent logo designing website which even had a video to take a tour on their logo designing process. It showed that they the logo design process of theirs were very professional
and neat and for one logo name they designed and gave a range of options atleast a minimum of ten alternatives to choose from. I was impressed with their solutions so I contact through online and got in touch with one of their logo designing experts and got around ten excellent designs and finally chose one from it.

Logo Design Samples

We did not hesitate even for a moment and we both immediately started to work on it in order to materialize it. We chose the name of our company and also chose our business models that would suit our business. But one essential thing was missing and we found it when we planned to print a letter pad for our company and it was the logo for our company. We checked out the internet and found a best site with a plenty of fantastic logo design samples. We could pick one that best reflected our business products and services.
