With the news this week of Microsoft’s purchase of Skype, the conversation around video conferencing and its business applications is now focused on what’s next. How is the space evolving and changing to meet an increasing demand of online collaboration? How are companies maximizing opportunities to further their enterprise objectives? How far is the socialization of our professional networks going to take us?
The increased functionality of video conferencing and the continual integration of social sharing within the professional space is the foundation of iMeet. Developed with the insights of their parent company, PGi, a global conference technology provider, iMeet understands the needs of collaborative, efficient and productive meetings. Poised to continue to carve out their unique space within this new virtual meeting space that is part cloud-based meeting room, iMeet is part conference call, live streaming, and social networking rolled into one platform.
iMeet’s desktop-based system that allows you to host conference calls from your own virtual video meeting room. The meeting room has several personalization features, such as selecting the creative background for your meeting, and additional options that will be rolled out in the coming months.
In addition to personalizing the meeting iMeet room, each of the call participants has the opportunity to create an iMeet profile for themselves. Personal profiles include an avatar, a bio, and links to social networks. The ability to personalize bios is additionally meaningful as each of the call participants can see the live video stream of the others in the room throughout the call.
Each meeting allows for instant messaging to all, or a select number of participants, as well as the sharing of files through the platform – so not only can you host a video conference, but your attendees can follow along the information you are presenting.
iMeet has been able to bridge an increasing gap in business meetings as we continue to be geographically dispersed but be digitally connected – no matter how technologically advanced we get, we feel closer as a team when we can see each other.
