Free Web Conference Solutions

In 2008, We might see more revolution in conferencing space than what we have seen in last couple of years, for 2 reasons. More companies trying to get into this space and more businesses exploring it as a viable solution to cut down cost in the wake of US recession.

There have been some leaders in Web conferencing solutions, mainly speaking WebEx.WebEx gives a Free trial and its a must try. However lately, we have seen some strong competition coming up in the Free Conference Calling space.

One such open source web conferencing solution is 1videoConference (a.k.a VMukti). So how is it different from other conferencing solution in the market? VMukti is totally FREE. It allows its Web, Audio/ Video phone, Skype, Msn and Yahoo users to instantly participate in live web conferences without the need for lengthy downloads or complicated installations. You don't need to download anything in order to use VMukti conference solution. It's like once you are connected, you can show presentations, share applications or users' desktops, hold live webinars, discuss new strategies face to face with business partners. Above all it's FREE unlike other paid solutions in the market. However It's probably FREE only for limited time, I can see that they are eyeing Enterprise market to buy a commercial license to use this product. Those details ain't out yet since its limited beta.

Lets quickly Look at what Conferencing Features does VMukti allows:

1) Audio and Video Conferencing: Low latency, multi-party video and audio sharing brings back the intimacy of a meeting.
2) Presentation and Document Sharing: Share your ideas on a presentation or help your partner edit a document in real time collaboration.
3) Chat: Not a featured speaker but still want to get your ideas heard? Do this with the multi-user Instant Messaging feature.
4) Allows audio/ video phone, MSN and Skype users to participate in the same conference. Of course use VOIP at large.
