Software Description:

Appear.in is a video conferencing platform that allows users to invite up to 8 participants for free, without login and software installation. They just need to create a room, copy & share the link, and appear together for the conversation.

This solution makes video conferencing smooth and easy, without unnecessary friction. It is HTML5-based only, with no flash or plugins required. People can connect with experts around the world, take part in discussions, produce music together, work collaboratively, set up teaching sessions, and other similar stuff. It also features screen sharing and locking the room to other participants.

Appear.in uses WebRTC, the recently published function, which uses JavaScript APIs and HTML5 to stream content. Can be used in Firefox, Opera, Safari, and Chrome, with IE yet to come.

Using cloud-based video conferencing software, you can seamlessly connect devices you already have, are familiar with and have invested in – including Skype for Business, Cisco, Polycom and Lifesize – to EVERY other device or platform, without the need for additional hardware or downloads.

With no need for additional hardware, the ability to connect all your current solutions together with those of other internal and external platforms, you can drive down costs by up to 90%. Being able to seamlessly connect all your teams together further reduces costs by eliminating unnecessary travel and studio costs.

The complete interoperability of Virtual Meeting Spaces reduces costs as no new, expensive hardware is necessary. It allows one-click connectivity between all members of your teams, wherever they are and whatever device they have access to, increasing productivity and communication and saving time.
