Nefsis Video Conferencing Introduces
Whiteboard — Further Expanding its Collaboration
Toolset for Productive Online Meeting
SAN DIEGO — October 14, 2011 — Online services innovator
Nefsis® announced today the addition of advanced, multi-layer
whiteboard capabilities to its business video conferencing
collaboration tools. The advanced features let multiple online
meeting participants add text, graphics, and hand-drawn objects to
the whiteboard, and edit them in real-time. These features are
beyond basic whiteboards included in most web conferencing products,
and far beyond H.239 one-user-at-a-time screen sharing limits found
in most hardware-based video conferencing systems.
The improved whiteboarding features deliver more interactivity
and a better, seamlessly integrated web and video conferencing
experience — an advantage made possible by Nefsis cloud
computing which can easily integrate new software-based features.
Online meeting whiteboards are typically simple “paint”
utilities rendering all mouse-drawn inputs on a single, raster-image
layer. The Nefsis advanced whiteboard supports multiple layers and
several ‘objects’ such as text, graphics, and shape and
drawing tool inputs. The various objects can be moved, stretched,
and deleted by the presenter and any participant given whiteboard
privileges. These additional capabilities are useful for distributed
project teams, brainstorming, and inter-office chalk talks where
basic whiteboards fall short.
can do more than simple painting. Nefsis includes a full
multiple layer model, with various objects and tools that can be
moved, stretched, deleted and modified, providing a lot more utility
for savvy online meeting users,” said Allen Drennan, Nefsis
Chief Technology Officer.
“Cloud computing seamlessly
integrates HD multiparty video and collaboration tools for our users,
without the complexity and IT maintenance burden required by
‘platform’ infrastructure solution suites, video routers,
and other pre-Internet video conferencing architectures.”
The multilayer whiteboard and all Nefsis
collaboration tools are available now to all Nefsis Professional
customers and trial users via worldwide cloud delivery. For a free
