White House Rolls Out 'Enhanced' Video Stream For Speech

People who viewed Tuesday's State of the Union on the White House website were treated to a multimedia presentation.

The site featured a live video feed of President Obama's speech to Congress, complemented by graphs, statistics, and photos displayed in a sidebar.

"As the President outlines his plans for 2012, you'll see key facts and figures," White House senior adviser David Plouffe said in an e-mail announcing the new features. "We'll present charts and infographics so that everyone can get a better understanding of the opportunities and challenges ahead of us."

The graphics corresponded to Obama's statements on such issues as jobs and immigration.

Obama used Tuesday's speech to outline proposals that he says will help the economy, including the tech industry, recover.
