Web videoconferencing software supports 50 simultaneous interactive participants

February 28, 2013 // By Julien Happich
Spirit DSP has released a new version of its multipoint web videoconferencing software, VideoMost 2.5, that allows 50 simultaneous interactive participants in one virtual conference room, and additional broadcasting of the conference to up to 500 people who can view and listen to the discussion in real-time or recorded.

VideoMost 2.5 enables telcos and service providers to launch SaaS multipoint videoconferencing under their own brand and billing in a matter of days, allowing them to quickly build new revenue streams and customer loyalty against OTT videoconferencing providers such as Microsoft and Webex. The tool can be used for collaboration engagements, such as interactive virtual sales meetings or product training for up to 50 professionals that can also be viewed by 500 additional remote employees or partners. The number of conference rooms is limited only by the service providers' hardware server farm capacity.

The software is powered by SPIRIT's TeamSpirit Conferencing (both server- and client-side), which embraces scalable H.264SVC and VP8 video codecs and SPIRIT's HD-quality IP-MRTM wideband voice codec (IETF RFC 6262) that automatically adapts video quality to bandwidth and processor power available. VideoMost delivers up to 30 fps and 720p HD-quality calling for each participant in a conference while requiring only 512 kbps of bandwidth.
