CeBIT 2008: VidSoft presents Videocommunication in Business quality starting at 5 Euro

(PresseBox) (Cambridge/Dresden, ) Distributed teams, constantly changing project assignments and the need for worldwide presence as a result of globalization, are enormously increasing the demand for efficient real-time collaboration solutions that support faster decision making and smarter problem solving. Many small and mid-sized companies as well as large corporations are struggling to properly scope their need for a collaboration solution including the need for departmental and project-based solutions. Having to invest in a new IT application and the resources to support implementation, service and maintenance, often forms a large barrier to entry for companies. With the latest Hosted Services VidSoft presents now a low priced solution in business quality for everyone at CeBIT 2008 in Hanover/Germany at Hall 7, both A38.

Starting at 5 Euro per month per user, now the implementation of a professional Videocommunication solution becomes easily affordable with the Basic Hosted Service. Now for their daily communication needs, even small and midsized companies, freelancers and self-employees can afford to use Video-, Audio-, and Webconferencing. Already with the Basic version, up to 10 users can participate in an interactive multipoint conference. Part of the alternative Premium Service is the option to invite up to 10 guests, not having an own VidSoft account, into a virtual meeting without any time or volume restrictions. This solution is especially interesting for users having the need to communicate with permanently changing partners like customers, vendors, consultants, journalists, lawyers, analysts etc..

VidSoft Hosted Services will be available to the market beginning of April in 3 new versions as a "Software as a Service (SaaS)" solution. Starting at 5 Euro per month and user, the Basic version includes Videocommunication and Multipoint meetings. VidSoft Hosted Service Standard includes for 25 Euro per month and user Videocommunication, Multipoint meetings and Data Collaboration (Application sharing, Desktop sharing, Document sharing and File transfer). For only 60 Euro per month and user, the Premium version of the Service includes the addition of 10 guests and the possibility for an unlimited number of users joining a meeting by telephone. Independent of having only access to a telephone, a web browser or a VidSoft Client, all users can participate in a virtual meeting and enjoy unlimited communication.

The already last year announced Corporate version of VidSoft Hosted Services now also has received some valuable additions. This version now includes not only Videocommunication, Multipoint meetings, Data Collaboration and a dedicated domain, but also the access for 5 guests, unlimited access by telephone into meetings and the connection to H.323 systems. VidSoft Hosted Service Corporate starts at 200 Euro per month and user, including already 8 users and must be signed for a 6 month period minimum. Additional users will cost 25 Euro per month and user (all prices without tax).

Sascha Kuemmel, CTO and Managing director of VidSoft GmbH stated: "with VidSoft Hosted Services, we offer very low priced, internet-based Rich Media Conferencing solutions in business quality for all kinds of company sizes and communication requirements. As for the proven In-house solutions from VidSoft, the Hosted Services offer the same high security standard through strong end-to-end encryption, easiness to use as well as the automatic adaptation to the individual PC or the network connection.
