SPIRIT DSP Launches VideoMost.com for Mass Market Multi-point Web Video Conferencing.
Software-only HD Video Conferencing Product Available for Immediate Licensing and Re-branding to Help Internet Service Providers and Hosting & Cloud Providers Compete with Skype, WebEx and Google.
LOS ANGELES, Calif. (IT EXPO West) – October 4, 2010 – SPIRIT DSP, the world’s leading provider of innovative, carrier-grade voice and video over IP software, has announced today a spin-off company, VideoMost.com. VideoMost is an HD quality, massively multi-point web video conferencing software-only product for licensing to Internet service providers (ISPs, cable and telco operators) and hosting and cloud providers, enabling them to launch video conferencing services under their own brands. VideoMost is powered by SPIRIT’s TeamSpirit® video server software, delivering unprecedented scalability of up to 1,000 concurrent video channels on a single standard $4000 PC server.
VideoMost delivers a complete, market-disruptive software-only, massively multi-point web-based video conferencing product immediately available for licensing and re-labeling to service providers. Unlike other video conferencing solutions, VideoMost allows service providers to offer their customers HD quality, high-performance, secure and scalable multi-party video conferencing, document sharing, IM and collaboration.
Today, service providers are faced with evolving bandwidth and scalability requirements as residential, business and mobile consumers continue to demonstrate a healthy appetite for advanced video services across a variety of networks and devices. Service providers seeking high-margin ‘sticky’ services to attract and retain subscribers and new business customers will enjoy the ROI from VideoMost.
According to recent forecasts, business video conferencing is projected to grow 10-fold at a 57 percent CAGR from 2009 to 2014 — nearly three times faster than the projected rate for overall business IP traffic. Web-based video conferencing is the fastest growing subcategory, with a projected CAGR of 183 percent from 2009 to 2014.
“VideoMost is ideal for service providers because the license enables them to quickly and easily launch their own high gross margin HD quality video conferencing services with unmatched low infrastructure costs and the right to private-label the offering under their own brand name,» said VideoMost’s CEO Slava Borilin. «VideoMost enables service providers to compete immediately with Skype, Google and WebEx, and answer the growing demand from their customers for information-rich video services, while reducing churn.»
VideoMost makes it easy for service provider customers — businesses and consumers — to conduct corporate sales and training meetings, manage on-the-fly web meetings with remote staff workers and instantly conduct real-time, «out-of-the-room» video calls and desktop/document sharing with multiple parties, regardless of their geographic location. The solution is open, requiring no registration for end-users, no expensive equipment (only a microphone, speakers or headphones, a web camera and a simple browser plug-in) and no client software installation. End users can invite a record-setting number of people to the conference without concern for quality degradation, regardless of their geographic location or varying bandwidths. Moderators can easily engage the audience through real-time, online discussions, letting them easily ask questions on the air either through text chat or directly through a virtual studio. VideoMost also supports 3D video from SPIRIT’s subsidiary SeeStorm.com.
Unlike Skype’s P2P architecture that loads the processing onto the user’s PC or Internet device, which creates a security problem in an enterprise as it forces passing other people’s information through the corporate network (not acceptable for most IT and system administrators), VideoMost uses a central server, allowing service providers to offer a controllable, secure and reliable solution to their corporate customers. VideoMost’s highly scalable software can process up to 1,000 simultaneous HD video channels on a standard $4000 PC server, enabling a 10,000-person organization to use just one PC server for all its video conferencing needs. SPIRIT’s innovative TeamSpirit video server software and a scalable H.264SVC video codec standard makes this possible. VideoMost runs on PCs (both Windows and Mac OSX), and will soon be available on Apple iOS4 and Android smartphones. VideoMost server software runs on both Windows and Linux.
