Soft Clients - Video Conferencing Collaboration Tools which Interoperate with Industry Standard Video Conferencing

Time 10/06/09 04:30PM-05:30PM

Session Abstract

There are now hundreds of PC-based collaboration tools which include video conferencing capabilities. For the most part, they are all incompatible with each other, and with industry standard H.323 video conferencing. However, recently a number of products have emerged that provide the best of both worlds: fully featured PC-based collaboration tools which are interoperable with standard video conferencing (and hence with each other). Four of these products from Internet2 member corporations will be described and demonstrated in this session. This includes products from LifeSize, Polycom, RADVision and Vidyo. Most of these have already have servers installed at the Internet2 Commons, and are available to Commons members today.
