ACT Conferencing, a global leader in integrated conferencing solutions, is proud to announce the launch of Forum, a revolutionary video conferencing offering. Through Forum, ACT can now connect conference participants on any video-enabled device and standards-based video platform.
Thanks to Forum, for the first time virtually any web and video-enabled device can be conferenced in from anywhere in the world. This leap forward means fast and convenient global video conferencing between smartphones, laptops, desktop computers and tablets. ACT’s Forum fulfills the need for high-quality, easy-to-use, flexible conferencing that is compatible with a number of existing popular video software applications, including Skype, Google Talk and ClearSea. ACT plans to introduce a WebRTC component later this year, which will enable browser-based real time communication.
“We’re very proud once again to be a pioneer within the conferencing industry,” said Gary Iles, vice president of sales and marketing for ACT Conferencing. “ACT introduced the first globally-meshed, low-cost audio routing platform, and now we’re essentially doing the same thing for video. Regardless of whether you use a hand-held device, laptop or desktop, ACT can now connect anyone, anywhere over video with its convenient and affordable service.”
With a number of sophisticated channel partners, ACT’s Forum offers an ideal conferencing solution that end-users have been seeking. “ACT is leading the way by responding to increased demand for greater flexibility and usability in video conferencing services. The new any-to-any cloud service, tying together H.323, SIP, Skype, Google Talk and WebRTC support, in one virtual meeting room, makes innovative high-quality video conferencing a reality for business customers,” Iles said, adding, “Forum is already in high demand and our partners have enthusiastically added this new service to their bag. We’ve been surprised by the rapid uptake, and are excited that this video solution enhances our partners’ competitiveness and ability to offer more innovative conferencing solutions.”
