Ticket Alternative Announces Pick-A-Seat Interactive Seat Maps For Venues And Clients With Reserved Seating

Atlanta, GA, Nov 12, 2012 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- Ticket Alternative, a boutique ticketing partner, announced the launch of Pick-A-Seat Interactive Seat Maps. In 3 simple steps, customers purchasing tickets can select a section, click on desired seats, select a preferred price type and quickly add tickets to their shopping carts. Pick-A-Seat Interactive Seat Maps are a key feature for venues with reserved seating, varied or dynamic pricing, unique sections, and ADA seating.

Ticket Alternative's HTML5- based Interactive Seat Map includes the ability to hover-over individual seats and sections to view seat availability and prices. The interactive map can be moved around for optimal viewing (drag and drop). Users have the ability to pan left and right and zoom in and out on a map. Sections can be color coded to quickly show availability or high demand seating.

While most venues choose to activate Pick-A-Seat after a busy on sale has passed, venues can easily turn on or turn off the Pick-A-Seat functionality at any time. This capability allows venues to control their seat inventory and make swift changes if needed.

"We are pleased to make the Pick-A-Seat feature available to clients with reserved seating and we feel that their customers will enjoy having control in the seat selection process," said Ticket Alternative President Iain Bluett. "When patrons have the opportunity to select their own seats they feel like they are getting a more personalized experience, especially if they are already familiar with the venue. " The Pick-A-Seat feature has always been attractive to a variety of venues, but the technology is very important to theatrical productions. Customers are typically sitting for longer periods of time and they may have different seat preferences in regards to visibility and location to the lobby.    "For an intimate 200-seat theater like Theatrical Outfit, Pick-A-Seat allows even more accessibility for our patrons, customizing their night out here at the Balzer Theater, said Hally Joseph, Director of Marketing for Theatrical Outfit. Whether our patrons love the front row or the back row, enjoy an aisle seat or dead center, Pick-A-Seat easily accommodates their needs while personalizing their experience."

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
