Otter.ai Launches Virtual Events Collaboration Service
Otter.ai announced the launch of Otter for Events – a new collaboration service that completely changes the virtual and offline events experience for organizers and audiences alike. With Otter Live Notes’ AI technology fully capturing event conversations and turning them into highly accurate interactive, collaborative transcripts in real-time, this offering provides a wealth of previously untapped benefits and value. It is targeted at any organization hosting a virtual, live, or in-person event – no matter the audience size.
“The relationship with Otter.ai evolved from the success of using it at our in-person Disrupt events to now using the new Otter for Events for all of our virtual events”
A new experience benefiting organizers and attendees
Organizers and hosts can now create a new hub of rich, shareable content, from every type of event including Zoom Video Webinars, as well as simultaneous sessions in multi-track virtual or in-person events.
Using the public and private groups feature of Otter for Events, organizers can share highlighted summaries and full speaker transcripts with their audiences, extending the overall reach and longevity of an event. Critically, this feature also boosts audience engagement to include those unable to attend – an attractive selling point for event sponsors. Overall, event organizers gain a distinctive technology proposition to differentiate their events, at a time when there has never been as many.
Meanwhile, time-pressed audiences, especially those juggling their everyday distractions while working from home, no longer need to worry about missing an important part of any event or feeling left out. Attendees can engage with events, on their terms, thanks to the ability to highlight and comment in real-time, as well as “rewind” or keyword search. With these functions, attendees can easily find the sections of conversations and information that interests them the most.
