SAN DIEGO, July 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Online services innovator Nefsis® announced today that its cloud-based HD video conferencing sessions now support live sharing of portable document format (PDF) files. At the click of a mouse, videoconference participants can share, annotate, and save multipage PDF documents on-the-fly, just as easily as sharing any other document type including PowerPoint® presentations and Word documents. As video conferencing adoption grows beyond the boardroom, seamlessly integrated collaboration features become more important. Nefsis helps its business customers by eliminating the cost and complexity of managing on-premise multichannel channel units (MCUs), desktop gateways, and collaboration servers by delivering all of these software-based capabilities via its global video conferencing cloud.
"Talking heads alone don't cut it anymore, the demands of inter-office meetings, training and sales presentations require secure, high-quality video, and advanced collaboration features such as PowerPoint, PDF, and media file sharing," said Tom Toperczer, Nefsis Vice President of Marketing. "Video conferencing without advanced collaboration falls short. Nefsis provides a complete business solution via lower-cost, cloud-based delivery."
The Nefsis PDF codec uploads a shared PDF on-the-fly, no preprocessing required. The document and any page changes are displayed to all conference participants simultaneously. The codec preserves the vector graphic display providing a high-quality presentation, allowing zoom-in, zoom-out, various display options, and thumbnail views. This is in marked contrast to H.239 and other screen capture methods that do not preserve rich text and vector graphics.
The new PDF codec is available now as a seamlessly integrated, advanced collaboration feature to all Nefsis Professional subscribers and trial users. For a free 14-day trial of Nefsis Professional, visit www.Nefsis.com.
