Citrix Debuts New Large Scale Web Event Service

Santa Barbara-based Citrix said this morning that it has launched a new, multimedia webcasting service aimed at large scale web events. Citrix said its new GoToWebinar Premier Event offering can handle up to 20,000 attnedees. The company said it is looking to target the movie, music, and entertainment market, schools and universities, community town halls, and more with the new product. Citrix already provided similar webcasting services, albeit on a much smaller scale. The firm's GoToWebinar product could handle up to 1000 attendees, so the new service significantly expands the scalability of the company's offerings. Pricing on the new service was not announced.
