Netpodium Announces Broadcast Service Provider Program To Give Service Providers Tools to Expand Their Business and Stay Competitive

Netpodium, Inc. today announced a new program called the Broadcast Service Provider (BSP) Program. The aim of the program is to establish a national network of service providers who deliver a range of value-added services for live interactive events on the Internet or intranets. Current program members include companies who provide interactive broadcast planning, design, production, and technical services for their clients. Live Internet communications can eliminate geographic barriers and allow communicators to conduct successful sales training, product launches, press conferences, or partner briefings.

While this new medium can save clients time and money, it also has some unique requirements. "Using a broadcast service provider is the best way to conduct a successful virtual event," says John O'Halloran, Netpodium CEO. "Our Netpodium BSPs have all the creative and technical know-how to handle the issues you might face when delivering your message on the Web."

Broadcast Service Providers can add new premium services to their current offerings by adding a range of services around conducting live Netpodium events. They can offer services such as content design and creation, network planning, streaming media encoding, server hosting, technical support, hosting or moderating services, or archiving. Netpodium Inc. provides the software, training, and a network of partners to help program members deliver these valuable services.

Netpodium is looking for Internet service providers, creative agencies, meeting planners, consultants, and service bureaus in several regions across the country who might be interested in becoming a Netpodium Broadcast Service Provider.
