SAN DIEGO, Oct. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Online services innovator Nefsis® announced today the addition of advanced, multi-layer whiteboard capabilities to its business video conferencing collaboration tools. The advanced features let multiple online meeting participants add text, graphics, and hand-drawn objects to the whiteboard, and edit them in real-time. These features are beyond basic whiteboards included in most web conferencing products, and far beyond H.239 one-user-at-a-time screen sharing limits found in most hardware-based video conferencing systems. The improved whiteboarding features deliver more interactivity and a better, seamlessly integrated web and video conferencing experience – an advantage made possible by Nefsis cloud computing which can easily integrate new software-based features.
Online meeting whiteboards are typically simple "paint" utilities rendering all mouse-drawn inputs on a single, raster-image layer. The Nefsis advanced whiteboard supports multiple layers and several 'objects' such as text, graphics, and shape and drawing tool inputs. The various objects can be moved, stretched, and deleted by the presenter and any participant given whiteboard privileges. These additional capabilities are useful for distributed project teams, brainstorming, and inter-office chalk talks where basic whiteboards fall short.
"You can do more than simple painting. Nefsis includes a full multiple layer model, with various objects and tools that can be moved, stretched, deleted and modified, providing a lot more utility for savvy online meeting users," said Allen Drennan, Nefsis Chief Technology Officer. "Cloud computing seamlessly integrates HD multiparty video and collaboration tools for our users, without the complexity and IT maintenance burden required by 'platform' infrastructure solution suites, video routers, and other pre-Internet video conferencing architectures."
The multilayer whiteboard and all Nefsis web collaboration tools are available now to all Nefsis Professional customers and trial users via worldwide cloud delivery. For a free trial, visit Nefsis.com.
