INNOVATION DISTRICT, BOSTON, MA & 2014 NFDA International Convention, Nashville, TN ­– October 13, 2014 -, the online resource for local and national obituary news, today announced the launch of a broadening of its relationship with Tukios to incorporate support for Tukios’ funeral webcasting product directly within Tributes’ obituary management platform. 

Funeral homes that have equipped their facilities with the proper Tukios video equipment will now be able to configure and display live and recorded webcasts directly within Tributes’ Eternal Tribute multi-media online memorial.  With a focus on simplifying operations, the integration allows funeral home personnel to manage webcasts right from within the Tributes Funeral Home Central dashboard, eliminating the need to learn and use a 2nd piece of software.

Providing webcasting services for families ensures that every family member can participate in the live funeral event – no matter their location – while increasing revenue per call.  Funeral homes enjoy revenue shares associated with purchases by extended family and friends of DVDs of the funeral service broadcast after the live event.
