Conferencing Zone Week in Review: RSupport, Tywi, FreeConferenceCall.com
Welcome back to the week in review, where we take a look at all the top stories making headlines in the Conferencing Zone this week.
The week started off with the news that RSupport has officially launched its new video conferencing solution, RemoteMeeting. One of the key elements that makes RemoteMeeting so popular is its simplicity. As TMC’s Andrew Bindelglass points out, “Because all of the software is hosted in the cloud, there are no additional programs or applications that users need to install in order to use the service. It is all hosted through standard Web browsers.” Find out everything you need to know about this convenient solution HERE.
Speaking of convenience, Translate Your World (Tywi) has just announced the availability of Web conferencing software that automatically translates voice into whatever language is needed. The software can also create instant captions for the hearing impaired and Braille for the blind. As if that isn’t impressive enough, it also provides channels for real time simultaneous translation. With video conferencing becoming increasingly popular for both business and personal reasons, it’s important for everyone to be able to participate fully. Find out more about this innovative new service HERE.
FreeConferenceCall.com also believes in giving everyone an equal opportunity. The company has just brought its video conferencing service to Tanzania, where many people have trouble getting to school or work because they live in remote areas with poor travel conditions. FreeConferenceCall.com firmly believes that location shouldn’t stop someone from receiving an education or doing their job, which is why it’s expanded its offering to so many countries in Africa.

Along the same note, the week rounded out with the news that video conferencing technology has been used for the first time during a Maharashtra Control of Organized Crime Act (MCOCA) case. MCOCA was put in place in India to stop organized crime and violence. It’s a great idea, but unfortunately the judicial process is slow because India is such a large country and it can be difficult to get all the necessary people into a courtroom at the same time. If justice isn’t being served in a timely manner, then the Act can’t do much to prevent violence. However, with the use of video conferencing, witnesses and police officers can appear in the courtroom to testify, without actually being here. Find out more about video conferencing’s debut in the courtroom HERE.
That’s all for this week. Come back next week to read all the latest news in the Conferencing space.
