Nefsis Advanced Collaboration Features
Raising the Bar in Video Conferencing


Nefsis customer surveys indicate increasing use of its web collaboration features
such as application sharing and playing movie files during business-to-business
video conferencing sessions

SAN DIEGO, Calif. — October 26, 2010 — Online video conferencing innovator Nefsis® reports an increasing percentage of its new customers use document, application and rich media sharing features in its online services. Company officials believe the motivators for the increasing figures among new customers are straight-forward: increasing familiarity with web conferencing creates expectations for built-in collaboration features in related products. Nefsis’ lead commercial product, Nefsis Professional, is a cloud-based video conferencing online service for business, which includes a full-suite of advanced collaboration features. Taken together, online services are raising the bar in the video conferencing industry.

Video conferencing is an evolving market once limited to stand-alone systems in large corporate and government installations. Today, there are products and online services for consumers, small and medium-sized businesses, too. For example, Citrix GotoMeeting announced support for video features, called ‘HD Faces,’ in their online service earlier this month; and Skype has offerings in consumer and business markets.

As web conferencing and cloud-based online services such as Nefsis enter the video conferencing market, they bring with them fully-integrated web collaboration suites. In particular, Nefsis lets conference hosts share presentations, documents, desktops and applications with highlighting and annotation tools, play movie files and distribute electronic handouts during a conference. This exceeds the collaboration capabilities of many web conferencing vendors and virtually all stand-alone video conferencing hardware products.

“We’re seeing a richer combination of high-quality video conferencing with web collaboration in our core business markets,” said Tom Toperczer, Nefsis vice president of marketing. “And live media sharing, the feature name for sharing a movie file during a conference, has grown four-fold just since last spring,” he added.

Another driver behind the increasing use of integrated web and video conferencing may be attributed to online services reaching line employees and a wider variety of applications that require substantial work during online meetings. Distributed project teams looking at AutoCAD® drawings, user interface mock-ups, draft advertising campaigns, telemedicine and PACS images, or inter-office meetings that need graphics or visual images to hold attention, just to name a few. These types of applications are beyond the scope of consumer products and stand-alone video conferencing hardware.

Nefsis offers an entry-level service, Nefsis Basic, for small business and home office applications, for free. The company’s flagship offering, Nefsis Professional, is designed for corporate customers with support for desktops, conference rooms and training facilities, including webcam and HD video inputs. These products are available now at Nefsis.com.
