SplashCast today announced a new partnership with Columbia Records and three major new features to make the SplashCast experience more interactive. New Yorkâ€™s Coheed and Cambria is the first Columbia band to have an artist channel built by SplashCast.
Coheed and Cambriaâ€™s channel will also be the first to deploy two exciting new SplashCast features. FanCast, a new mobile publishing feature, will allow the bandâ€™s fans to upload photos, audio files and video from their mobile phones to the Coheed and Cambria channel. The second feature that will be deployed first on Columbia Records artist channels is live chat. Fans will be able to discuss whatever is on their minds in real time with the new in-player chat functionality.
Finally, SplashCast also announced today its immediate availability on all channels. SplashCast now offers the only media player online that allows quick, inline messaging to Twitter.
