I have been pretty busy lately, preparing for the release of Microsoft Office Live Meeting 2007. I am finalizing my content to ensure that my group is properly prepared to work with the upcoming release.
Video is one of features new to Office Live Meeting 2007. There are two types of video available for use in OLM 2007.
- Active Presenter Video
- Multimedia Content
Active Presenter Video
Broadcasting the webcam of a presenter during the online meeting. A presenter starts their webcam, and attendees will be able to see the streaming live video. This live video can be added to the recording of the event and viewed during playback. This allows one more method of interaction between presenters and attendees.
Multimedia as content
Multimedia can now be viewed in the client as any other content. The media files are uploaded like typical content, and then can be viewed by all participants. Playback can be controlled by the presenter, or attendees can be given control of their own playback. Adding multimedia to the presentation can add another dimension to the event.
The screen shot for multimedia is a video from Laura Foy of Channel 10 Microsoft’s 360 degree camera creates panoramic views, a post about Roundtable, a panoramic video system that also works with OLM 2007.
I did a quick overview of the other features in my post Microsoft Office Live Meeting 2007 – Quick Preview. If your company does any type of meetings over the web, or is looking into the, you should definitely download the client and check out Office Life Meeting 2007.
