I’m happy to announce the official beginning of the Palbee Webcording Contest! I hope that this brings us interesting and valuable content, and I am eager to give away these cool gadgets. Here’s the text of the official press release:
Win MP3 Players in Palbee’s Monthly Webcording Contest
Seoul, South Korea, June 27 – Palbee.com, a free online video meeting service, has announced a Webcording Contest with monthly and quarterly prizes on its web site. Winners can receive the latest in South Korean mp3 players. Entries are accepted from any Palbee user around the world.
To participate in the contest, visitors must register at the Palbee.com web site and record a presentation in the English language using Palbee’s online presentation recording service. Then, using the same email address that they used to register, users must submit the URL of the recorded presentation to the contest email. Notable entries will be posted on the Palbee blog throughout each contest month. First, second, and third place winner will be chosen at the end of each month from all of the entries received during the contest period. For more information about the contest, check out the Palbee web site and the Palbee blog.
“Creative, interesting content is at least as important as high quality service,” said Matthew Weigand, Project Manager at Palbee.com. “In today’s Internet, interesting and original content is the one and only true resource.” He hopes that Palbee.com will become a treasure trove of presentations on a large number of topics; a kind of audiovisual Wikipedia. This contest is designed to stimulate the development of a large body of audiovisual knowledge and entertainment.
Palbee.com is a kind of cross between a conference room and YouTube. It allows its users to record multimedia presentations with audio, video, graphics and PowerPoint slides. Its video area can record audio and video directly from a webcam or other video feed. The whiteboard area allows users to import and display pictures and PowerPoint slides, write text notes, draw, highlight, and resize them as well. It is an ideal way to present formalized information.
