 ON24, a webcasting and virtual-event company, has launched ON24 MOVE (Mobile Virtual Environments), an expansion of its mobile product that optimizes viewing on mobile devices such as iPads and smartphones. Users watching events on tablets will see an HTML5-based 3-D virtual environment; smartphone users will see a content-focused compact view. "ON24's solutions are truly optimized for tablets and mobile phones; they aren't just a ‚Äòre-display' of the desktop version," said Jayesh Sahasi, ON24's chief product officer and CTO. The move to upgrade the mobile experience for virtual audiences was driven by the rapid rise of mobile usage on ON24's webcasting platform, which grew 300 percent in the last year.
