- Easy access and search – The video wall organizes and presents content visually, making search faster, easier and more intuitive. Related information can be stored together in a content group such as a channel, where it is visible and easily retrieved. In addition, the information kiosk provides a clean display of content along with easy access, helping users quickly find exactly what they want.

A redesigned conference hall makes navigation more intuitive, while a visual communication indicator and new embedded webcast player improve overall performance. The new attendee bar makes it easier to search for and locate attendees anywhere within the virtual environment. A larger window and easier-to-read fonts improve the attendee experience.
- New administrative tools – Enhanced Q&A, moderated chat, webcast announcements, background templates and more make Version 10 more flexible and easier to use.
