New Skype Certified products in July
In July there have been certified the following new software products:
Vapps High Speed Conferencing
An application that enables users to have conference calls with up to 500 participants. There is a +99 number for every registered user. To start a conference, user must send one’s +99 number to the other participants, either other Skype users or regular telephone users, and the others must dial in. During a call participants can ask the number of all participants, mute and unmute themselves and change their volume level by DTMF tones. Host can also mute and unmute all the other participants and lock and unlock the conference, both by DTMF tones and from application window. Technically the conference is hosted not from host’s PC but from server, therefore it doesn’t apply much pressure on local computer.
Vapps High Speed Conferencing needs Microsoft .NET installed.
CrazyTalk is not a new product, first time it was certified in the beginning of 2006 already but their latest version contains new features like media and Desktop sharing. It means that if previously user had options to show the other party either one’s actual video picture or animation, then now one can show also movies, photos, documents, system settings or just some areas from the Desktop. On media and Desktop sharing user can set resolution and frame rate, to find suitable combination of movement speed and picture quality.
