LAS VEGAS, Aug. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today at ITEXPO West, UberConference announced the launch of HD audio in its award-winning teleconferencing service. UberConference is the first teleconferencing service to offer High Definition audio to those dialing in through WebRTC on Google Chrome.
By using the HD audio codec OPUS, which dynamically adapts to changes in available network bandwidth, UberConference offers the best possible sound quality for each call. With OPUS, UberConference can transmit much more of the audio spectrum and produce calls that are lifelike and realistic, often making participants feel like they are in the same room.
"Until today, conference calls couldn't deliver the rich audio of in-person meetings," explains UberConference CEO and Co-Founder, Craig Walker. "Now, with OPUS and UberConference, the quality of your conference calls is truly amazing."
Walker will be speaking and judging at ITEXPO West, which takes place August 26-29 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, NV.
He will speak on two IT keynote panels:
- "Service Providers: Smart Ecosystem Facilitators or Dumb Pipes?" on Wednesday at 3:00 p.m.
- "Five Technologies Critical to the Future of Business" on Thursday at 9:00 a.m.
He was also selected to judge the ITEXPO Startup Camp 8. Startup Camp, a pitch event focused on the communications sector, ran on August 27 and allowed privately funded startups to present their ideas to industry leaders and ITEXPO attendees.
UberConference fixes all the broken and outdated aspects of traditional conference calling, making it a more productive business tool, and transforming an industry that hasn't seen real innovation in decades. UberConference's elegant UI for web and mobile makes features easy-to-use with the click of a button. Built by the teams that brought Google Voice and Yahoo! Voice to tens of millions of users, UberConference launched in 2012 and is funded by Andreessen Horowitz and Google Ventures. Learn more.
