Shindig is a NYC based start-up committed to unleashing the unrealized potential of video chat. Shindig’s patented technology enables artists, DJs, speakers, and authors to create video chat events with all the dynamics of physical events at Internet scale. Shindig events can host thousands of simultaneous participants who can all see and be seen by one another. Participants can freely engage in private video chat conversations with each other while enjoying a talk, interview, or any other from of presentation. Hosts can also select audience members to come up and “share the stage” and interact directly with presenters “face-to-face” in front of the entire gathering. The platform supports multimedia presentations such as Powerpoint presentations and audio/video files. This highly customizable VIP access offers substantial new opportunities for monetization while also producing a low-cost video archive with significant follow value. It also seques naturally to paid events, webinars and panels.
