As a customer-driven company, Altadyn has constantly been listening to users demands and Voice over Internet Protocol commonly called VOIP, was on top of the list since a while. To satisfy our customers, we evaluated several VOIP technologies on the market, but noticed that they all require that the end-users download a client software. We believe that 3D web conferencing and virtual events markets will become mainstream only if they are easy to use, and accessible to all. That’s why we developed our own java based VOIP technology which works seamlessly in the browser. With what we have come up with, in order to attend a meeting, a user just presses on the invitation link received by e-mail and enters the space; he/she immediately hears the attendees voice; nothing to install, no other action required.
The VOIP enabled version is available to all users as of this week, under “Test”. To use it, login to your account, then open your 3D space settings page, under tab “Version” you usually see “LastRelease”. Change it to “Test”. As soon as you do this change, any visitor entering this space will be using the test release, which has Voice enabled.
When a new user walks into your voice-enabled space, he/she will hear whatever is going on in the room, but he/she is not heard, until the “Voice” button is activated. This button appears on the upper left corner of the screen.
A voice icon appears over the head of the avatar who talks, so that everyone can notice who’s talking.
Moderators can cut voice by pressing the “Mute Audience” button at any time.
Beside the cutting edge VOIP feature, new functionalities have been released:
– 2 weeks free trial for all 3DXplorer products,
– New meeting planner with invitation text supporting 8 different languages for 3DX/Online Meeting and 3DX/Conferencing
– Customized invitation templates for 3DX/Online Meeting and 3DX/Conferencing
– Drastically enhanced features for software developers using 3DX/API
