Santa Clara, CA (March 21, 2008) – RHUB Communications Inc., a premier provider of Web conferencing solutions, announced the release of TurboMeeting Version 3.3. This new release represents a milestone for the award winning TurboMeeting software with the launch of international language support and recording. TurboMeeting 3.3 now supports five languages for user convenience: English, Spanish, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese and Japanese. RHUB’s advanced record capability makes it easy for the user to record both computer screen and audio during a meeting.
All RHUB appliances will automatically update with this release. No IT support is required for the update.
The key new features of 3.3 include:
International language support – A user who has their PC set to any of the five languages supported will automatically see all the TurboMeeting user interface in his native language.
* Traditional Chinese
* Simplified Chinese
Record with built-in player – Each PC user can record the meeting session on their computer. Audio picked up by the computer microphone is also recorded and synchronized with the screen update. RHUB proprietary recording format yields much greater compression efficiency than standard recording formats. Unlike other competitors using standard recording formats that sometimes can record only part of the meeting presenter screens thus miss some critical information, the RHUB player can view the whole or any part of the meeting presenter screen during playing and all information is captured. RHUB’s recorder only records the meeting presenter screen without any insertion of attendees’ local screens thus eliminating confusion. The voice quality is crystal clear.
The single executable record file includes the embedded player. A user just needs to click on the file and the player starts. It does not rely on any third-party players.
Hosting online registration for resellers – Selected resellers can now conduct online campaigns and invite their potential customers to register at their TurboMeeting appliance for evaluation. Resellers can retrieve online registration anytime to generate sales leads.
Macintosh OS 10.5 support – The TurboMeeting client software is now compatible with the newest Macintosh operating system.
Publish meeting calendar – Meeting hosts can now indicate which meeting is to be published for public access. The TurboMeeting appliance provides a URL for the appliance owner to display those publishable meetings in either HTML or XML format. An attendee can simply click on a meeting link on a public meeting calendar and join.
Hide attendee list – The host of a meeting can choose to have attendee lists display or not on attendees’ meeting control panel.
Administrator control enhanced – The system administrator can now terminate any on-going meeting when it is desired.
Enhanced branding – In addition to the ability to brand the meeting homepage with company logo and name, the appliance owner can set a promotional URL of his marketing web page, which will be viewed by meeting attendees when a meeting ends.
New TurboMeeting 200 Review – CRNTV recently reviewed the TurboMeeting 200 Web conferencing appliance and rated five stars for TurboMeeting 200.
