Business Users

NetMeeting provides powerful conferencing and collaboration functions in a complete, integrated package for the Internet or corporate intranet.

The following standards-based capabilities are integrated into NetMeeting:

  • Multipoint Data Conferencing.
    With NetMeeting's comprehensive suite of data conferencing tools, you can collaborate and share information with two or more meeting participants in real-time. You can share information from one or more applications on your computer, exchange graphics or draw diagrams with the electronic whiteboard, send messages, or record meeting notes and action items with the text-based chat program, and send files to other meeting participants using the binary file transfer capability.

     

  • Internet Telephony/Audio and Video Conferencing.
    With a sound card, microphone, and speakers, NetMeeting lets you talk to business associates over the Internet or corporate intranet in real-time. With a video capture card and video camera, you can send and receive video images over the Internet or corporate intranet for face-to-face communication during a meeting. You can receive video even if you do not have a camera connected to your computer. You can also use the video conferencing capability to take a snapshot with your video camera and place the image on the whiteboard for discussion or markup.
