Calling all race fans: Don’t miss the live chat, “Andretti Live & Global” on Ortsbo, powered by Windows Azure, with three generations of the legendary Andretti racing family – Mario, Michael and Marco – Saturday, August 27, 2011 at 9:00 am PT. During the live chat, fueled by Ortsbo’s Live & Global platform, the Andretti racing family will chat live with racing fans and media around the world in up to 53 languages.
A division of Intertainment Media, Ortsbo allows users around the world to communicate with family, friends and colleagues by enabling them to break down language and cultural barriers through an easy to use, language-centric interface.
Ortsbo’s new HTML alpha platform offers users the ability to connect to Facebook, MSN and Google Talk; other social networks will be added quickly. The HTML version of Ortsbo, combined with the power of Windows Azure, allows both commercial and consumer use of Ortsbo without the need to download a plug-in, facilitating real time translated chat for virtually all worldwide browser-enabled devices.
Presented by Andretti Autosport, together with INDYCAR and Ortsbo, the chat will be broadcast live to fans around the world from Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, Calif., which was the site of Marco Andretti's first win.
