GlowPoint Inc. and Pixion on Thursday made the Web collaboration service
GlowPoint Video Meeting Companion
available exclusively to customers of Glowpoint’s existing IP-based video conferencing services. Video Meeting Companion enables users to share and collaborate on documents, presentations, images or other types of files over the Web in real-time. It also offers such tools as polls and quizzes as well as a “capture frame” utility that allows presenters to control what attendees see.
New and current GlowPoint subscribers can obtain a two-week trial of Video Meeting Companion, which offers an “All You Can Share” plan that allows unlimited video conferencing and document collaboration for as little as US$2 per day, per user. The native client requires Mac OS X v10.1, a 100MHz processor, 32MB RAM (more if presenting on large displays), a 28.8Kbps Internet connection, Sun Java Runtime Environment 1.4 and Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.x or Netscape Navigator 6.x.
