Astute Launches New iPad® Application for Mobile Conference Viewing

RESTON, VA, December 23, 2010 – Astute Technology has jumped into 2011 full force by launching a new iPad® Application for a large medical association. Leveraging Astute's patented Conference.CAST® and Encore technologies, the app provides users with an experience similar to our state-of-the-art Silverlight media player. Apple officially accepted the app into its e-commerce framework on December 23, 2010 and it has since been widely downloaded. This app makes viewing of conference content both more convenient and portable than ever before with the ability to view on a variety of mobile devices.

This application includes the ability to browse conferences, sessions and presentations and watch content at the touch of a button, including a full-size view of presentations. In addition to providing free meeting content to users, the app communicates with the client for login to verify user access to various restricted or purchase-only conferences, as determined by the client's e-commerce system.

Additional iPad® app capabilities will be added over the coming months including search, recent content, top content, bookmarking and more, and Astute is excited to increase our mobile capabilities by anticipating the launch of a corresponding iPhone application in February 2011.
