Video Conferencing for Asterisk

Monday, 06 November 2006
Indian developer Adiance Technologies has released an Alpha version of 1Videoconference, which it claims is one of the World's First open source web-based video conferencing solutions for Asterisk.

According to a statement from the company, it has succeeded in developing a solution to stream asterisk audio/video channels to a web browser, which could lead to advanced video solutions such as, IP TV, video conferencing, video contact center, remote surveillance, video kiosk and video PBX.
The 1VideoConference, available on Source forge, now allows web, audio/video phone, Skype, MSN and Yahoo users to participate in a multipoint video conference.

But it could also be used as a platform for video services like TV shows, photography shows, marketing events, network games, social community sites, video wiki, blogs and forums, video tutorials, video library and more, says the company.

Hardik Sanghvi President and CEO of Adiance said: "1videoConference is [a] true enabler of video/voice and data interactions among the web and phone users.

"Being open source, web-based and foot print free, video enabled and cost effective, 1videoConference, as I envision, will change the way people and businesses collaborate on day to day basis."
The solution relies on .NET 3.0 and Asterisk and has some advanced features such as the ability to switch from a fixed line internet connection to a voice only mobile connection mid-conference if the line goes down.

Some of the in-conference features include; audience poll, destop-sharing, co-browsing, whiteboard, weblink, remote monitoring and co-authoring, according to Adiance.
