Los Gatos, CA (PRWEB) October 23, 2008
Persony, Inc., the leading provider of fully branded private label web and video conferencing solutions, today announced the addition of a cross-platform and no download desktop sharing feature to its Web Conferencing 2.0 product. The new feature allows a presenter to share the entire desktop with all meeting participants in real time from a Windows®, Macintosh®, or Linux® computer without installing any proprietary or special software. The new feature works with most web browsers, including but not limited to Microsoft Internet Explorer®, Mozilla Firefox®, Apple Safari® and Google Crome®.
Most other web conferencing solutions require all meeting participants to download and install a browser plug-in for desktop sharing. The plug-in is a hinderer for widespread adoption of web conferencing as it usually works only on Window computers and many corporate users are not permitted to install such plug-ins.
Persony Web Conferencing 2.0 (WC2) is a Flash® based integrated audio, video, and web conference solution. Most features in WC2, such as presentation sharing, whiteboard, and streaming videos are already browser-based and do not require software download. Prior to this addition, a WC2 presenter must install a small program in order to share the desktop with other meeting participants. With the addition, a WC2 presenter has a choice of using a cross-platform Java® client for desktop sharing. Other meeting participants do not need to have Java installed. In addition to real time desktop sharing, a presenter can also share a snapshot of the desktop and allow others to annotate the snapshot. The entire desktop sharing session can be recorded and automatically synchronized with an audio conference recording using Persony's integrated audio and web conference recording feature. The recorded session can be played back immediately using a web browser.
"Persony Web Conferencing 2.0 product was cross platform capable before this software advancement but presenters using Windows, Linux, or Mac OS X had to download a small program if they wanted to share their desktop," said Herb Levitin, president of Persony. "Now we have eliminated all software downloads and installations, we believe the improved feature will speed up the adoption and reduce support costs of Persony's solution by our service provider partners and their end users."
Persony Web Conferencing 2.0 is currently being offered by many conferencing or application service providers to thousands of end users or companies. The key to rapid adoption of Persony WC2 is its patent pending technology which turns any commodity web server into a full feature web conferencing server thereby lowering web conferencing hosting costs. Persony WC2 can also be hosted on virtual servers such as those from Amazon Web Services at extremely low cost.
