Netmeetings[edit | edit source]

  • Applications sharing and data conferencing- Unlike most conferencing products, which enable only audio phone calls, NetMeeting allows users to have a much richer experience by sharing information on their PC with the people they are talking to, allowing to connect with multiple users.
  • Allows sharing of one's desktop with multiple users with a choice of letting the other users edit it.
  • The other users in the conference do not have to have the same application to view it.
  • Netmeeting also allows users to share a whiteboard, where they sketch their ideas, as well as live chat with the rest of the conference.
  • NetMeeting will change the way people communicate and collaborate on the Internet and corporate intra-nets by expanding the situations in which the PC can be used. Possible scenarios include these:

-Virtual meetings, allowing users to be remote or in different locations and conduct meetings as if everyone were in the same room.

-Document collaboration, allowing users to work together and collaborate on documents or information in real time.

-Customer service, allowing users to communicate directly with customer service from a Web site, or be able to see graphic information as part of a telephone call.

-Telecommuting, allowing users to extend their reach while on the road or other locations beyond file sharing or e-mail, by taking advantage of data conferencing capabilities.

-Distance learning, allowing presentations or information to be presented to numerous people at the same time over the Internet or intra-nets for education purposes.
