Nefsis Introduces New Document & Live Data
to its Video Conferencing Cloud
SAN DIEGO — March 4, 2011 — Online video conferencing
services innovator Nefsis® today announced the introduction of new
document and live data sharing technology in its global video
conferencing cloud. Many video conferencing and online meeting
products use a single methodology for all sharing features. Nefsis
applies a variety of techniques which results in better image
quality and faster response times for online meeting participants.
The new technology is available now to all Nefsis customers and
“Video conferencing brings an important human touch to online meetings, but
working meetings require interactive collaboration tools for
brainstorming, problem solving and more interactivity. That's where
these seamlessly integrated collaboration tools come in,” said Tom
Toperczer, Nefsis Vice President of Marketing.
Most video conferencing systems use H.239 offering only screen
sharing for all data. Nefsis uses one codec for document sharing
— such as Microsoft® PowerPoint® and Word files —
and another codec for application, desktop and region sharing. When
using Nefsis, shared documents are presented to online meeting
participants in rich text and clear vector graphic displays, not
grainy screen grabs. Document data is sent only once, saving bandwidth
and improving response time. While bitmap and raster image data from
live desktops is displayed in best-possible, compressed image
quality based on real-time bandwidth conditions for each
In addition to image quality and speed, these specialized codecs
allow online meeting hosts to grant annotation, keyboard and mouse
inputs, and other interactive
to any meeting participant, a capability not possible with one-way
H.239 screen sharing.
The cloud computing architecture behind
Nefsis is a natural framework for managing a variety of codecs.
In addition to the codecs just updated, the Nefsis cloud also
manages voice over IP (VoIP) audio, traditional teleconference
signaling, HD video and specialized codecs such as rich media
sharing for playing movie files in a conference.
Headquartered in San Diego,
California, Nefsis is a technology specialist in video conferencing
software and cloud computing online services. The Company’s global

business, government and educational customers in more than 45

automatically maintained, and easier to expand.
