Web conferencing a breeze

MACROMEDIA is hoping to change the face of online presentations and web conferencing with the Asian-Pacific release of Breeze 5.

Real-time meetings and seminars are accessed through any web browser using the company’s Flash Player.

With 98% of internet users already owning Flash, operation of Breeze is simple, as no additional downloads are required - you simply enter an online meeting or access an on-demand presentation.

Leesa Lee, Macromedia senior product manager, says people are getting used to the idea of communicating online.

“This region has the opportunity to be the leader in web conferencing and Macromedia is leading the next generation of online meeting,” she says.

Lee describes Breeze as a broad tool that can be used in almost any organisation.

“It’s highly flexible and unique in that it supports different types of media. Breeze can be used for anything from online education and training through to commercial uses.”

Breeze also has a telephone gateway allowing VoIP technology to be used as another way of cutting costs.

Lee says that with the increasing cost of airfares the product provides an inexpensive alternative.

John Biviano, Macromedia mana-ging director Australia and New Zealand, says the product is extremely modular.

“Customers can purchase it through their reseller and install it on their own server or purchase it as a service where Macromedia hosts the account,” he says.

The hosted service is available now but the product won’t be available in the country until next month.

Breeze will be distributed to the commercial and education markets through Express Data, and Renaissance will deal with the education version.

Biviano is planning an Auckland roadshow to promote the product and says there has already been positive feedback from local customers, including the Ministry of Education.

The product pricing starts at $10,000 for the Breeze presenter component.
