Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) February 24, 2012
VSee, the leading provider of secure group video chat and application sharing service for both Mac® and PC, is moving to a freemium pricing model. The free VSee client is available for download at http://www.vsee.com.
All features of the VSee software will be free for both personal and commercial use, including
● Group video chat (no restrictions on group size)
● Application sharing and file transfer
● HD telepresence video
● Military-grade encryption (FIPS 140-2 256 bit AES)
At the high end, VSee provides an immersive multi-screen HD experience comparable to a $250K Cisco Telepresence experience, but at zero the cost. At the low end, VSee provides a Skype-like group video chat that is free for an unlimited number of users. VSee also allows for common WebEx or GotoMeeting use cases at no cost.
Dr. Milton Chen, CEO of VSee says, “We believe it’s important to give everyone access to free HD video collaboration service in order to push us into a future where video collaboration is the norm and people are unconstrained by long commutes and geospatial boundaries.”
Dr. Richard Chuang, Academy Award Winner and CEO of Cloudpic says, "VSee HD group video chat cuts to the chase for content creators and artists. Pulling a team together from around the globe to do an impromptu secured session is immediate. Instant desktop collaboration is perfect for artists helping each other out. With the new freemium pricing this will be a hit with the content creation industry."
VSee will charge for administrative, integration, and support services such as embedding a one-click call button with live presence indicator on a webpage or social network, pre-populating address books with all employee accounts in a company
managing the use of certain features such as recording, file transfer or application sharing.
VSee aims to create a commute-free world by making remote work as simple and satisfying as being there in person. VSee provides secure group video calling, application sharing, and file transferring. Its network-sensing technology is optimized for wireless 3G networks and allows for high quality video in developing countries such as Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. VSee’s intuitive design is based on the human factors research of former Stanford University scientists and Professors Terry Winograd (PhD advisor to Google founder Larry Page) and Pat Hanrahan (two time Academy Award winner from Pixar). VSee customers include IBM, Intel, Shell, the United Nations, NASA, and the Navy SEALs. Users include Hillary Clinton, Angelina Jolie, Mandy Moore, and the rock band Linkin Park.
