Houston, TX (PRWEB) April 7, 2009
omNovia Technologies Inc., the industry leader in web conferencing technology, has been selected to webcast the 2009 Digital Energy Conference organized by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), to be held on April 7 and 8, 2009 at the Marriott Westchase in Houston, Texas. Faculty members and students from 26 top universities around the nation will remotely participate in presentations and panel discussions via omNovia Live. omNovia Live is an advanced web-casting technology that allows remote groups to communicate via high quality voice, video, desktop sharing and other interactive features in a simple and user-friendly browser based interface.
Bart Stafford, Global Digital Oilfield Practice Leader at SAIC and Chairman of the Conference Organizing Committee, said that "The Digital Energy Conference organized by SPE has always been a forum for exchange of ideas between petroleum and technology professionals and this year the focus is on the importance of effective collaboration. This concept will be demonstrated during the conference by using the omNovia web conferencing technology to reach an extended university audience in an interactive environment with live audio and video."
Remote web-based collaboration and presentations can bring significant cost savings to the oil and gas industry and can improve the quality of communication leading to substantial productivity increase. However, few conferencing solutions meet the industry's demanding business requirements when it comes to speed, reliability and security. "In the current economic climate, companies from a broad range of industries continue to rely on omNovia's cost effective, cutting edge solution for their daily communication needs. Our user-friendly platform resolves many business and technical issues and is the only web conferencing system that can host from two to 5,000 simultaneous online participants," said Shawn Shadfar, Founder and CEO of omNovia Technologies and former information security expert at Schlumberger.
By utilizing web conferencing, university faculties and students can develop and maintain a stronger on-going relationship with oil and gas professionals and avoid the cost of travel.
