Citrix Online Unveils First All-in-One Screen Recording Service ‘GoView’ at DEMO

Innovative next-generation content-sharing service disrupts category with easy 3-step recording, editing and sharing capabilities

Palm Desert, Calif. (March 02, 2009) – Today on stage at DEMO, Citrix Online, a division of Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CTXS), introduced an easy to use screen recording, editing and sharing service. With GoView(TM) business professionals can create and widely share recorded content online, significantly extending their presentation capabilities and impact beyond time and location. GoView is the first product available that enables recording, editing and content sharing in one simple to use service.

“Our customers told us they wanted an easy way to create, edit and distribute screen recordings of their content with audio,” said Brett Caine, general manager, Citrix Online. “GoView empowers everyone-from solo entrepreneurs to executives at large multi-nationals-to create, edit and stream presentations, webcasts, tutorials and other dynamic material to their audiences, anywhere at any time. With our trademark ‘simpler is better’ approach, we’re confident that GoView will have broad acceptance, and that it will ultimately transform the way businesses develop ideas and share content.”

“Screen casting is becoming a much needed tool in the business environment for sales, training or marketing professionals that want to capture, edit and share a presentation,” said Aimee Roberts, Industry Analyst with Frost & Sullivan’s Digital Media Group. “Services such as GoView that offer easy functionality can enhance the presentation experience over the long term while also lowering costs by providing the ability to repurpose business critical communications in an on-demand environment.”

“Because GoView is so simple to use, anyone will be able to easily create, record and share their screen content,” said Chris Shipley, executive producer of DEMO. “A good example is the classic PowerPoint, which is challenging for most people to present without verbal commentary. GoView’s all-in-one model makes it extremely simple to add and edit audio and then widely share content, without complications or complexities.”

Users can ‘clone’ themselves for greater reach and effectiveness
GoView is ideal for people who wish they could clone themselves as they spend an enormous amount of time meeting with customers, colleagues and prospects. GoView allows them to get more done and extend their reach through the distribution of screen recordings of their content. The simplicity and intuitive interface built into GoView makes it easy to use for a broad range of business functions, such as creating how-to tutorials to customized sales, marketing, and training presentations. GoView can also be used by IT support staff for archiving ‘help’ recordings or support sessions.
