Olsy last week launched what it claims is the first platform independent video conferencing system, allowing users to break free of the hardware/software tie-ins inherent in previous systems.
PCC Turbo is Olsy UK's third-generation Personal Communications Computer software and incorporates Microsoft NetMeeting 2.0 which conducts the information exchange.
Including Net-Meeting in PCC Turbo means that Olsy has extended the capabilities of its product to embrace the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) T.120 standard. Users can now share data in a multipoint conference over ISDN, LAN or the Internet with other T.120-compliant systems.
Martin Gregory, Internet product manager at Microsoft, said: "Among its many features, NetMeeting 2.0 includes file transfer chat, document/applications sharing and whiteboard facilities, and has rapidly growing industry support as part of Microsoft's Internet Explorer Browser. Major companies like Olsy are integrating NetMeeting 2.0 into their products, allowing their customers to solve business problems and communicate more effectively."
PCC Turbo also facilitates ISDN Internet access, utilising Olsy's existing video conferencing card and ISDN line.
Olsy has also retained a similar look and feel to the graphical user interface on its previous version, allowing users to upgrade with the minimum of disruption.
David Catchpole, business solutions manager at Olsy UK, said: "Some companies have been reluctant to invest in desktop conferencing to date, principally due to the lack of recognised international standards and the fear of software/hardware tie-ins. PCC Turbo breaks this stranglehold giving customers the freedom to choose the system which best meets their needs, while allowing them to upgrade as their needs evolve."
