SPIRIT Announces Java-Version Of TeamSpirit Conferencing Tool

Lets Many Users Speak Without Loss Of Clarity

SPIRIT has announced the availability of a Java-version of TeamSpirit, its voice engine for multi-point IP conferencing. The new software enables guests to access conferences with no compromise to speech quality. TeamSpirit Java is a Java library for creating Java applets, enabling a host of innovative features.

The main feature distinguishing TeamSpirit from other alternatives on the market is the multi-point mode that enables dozens of users to participate in a conference simultaneously. Speech quality is not degraded when more speakers enter into a conversation, their speech still remains clear and easy to understand even during simultaneous talk.

Any user can join an IP conference from any remote location with limited network access, such as public Internet access points with download restrictions. Users can connect to voice mail or another voice stream server (including RTSP and other media broadcast servers) from a remote location with limited network access. All features are accessible from the Web and provide maximum Web privacy.

To join a conference user simply clicks on the conference URL in the invitation e-mail (if any) or just types it in the browser address toolbar. The Java-applet will be downloaded to cache and the user can instantly listen to the real-time conference without installing any client-side software. Even if user is unable to take an active part in the conference he still has the opportunity to listen in and keep informed of the content, or review the conference recorded and stored at conferencing server. No special codecs or players are downloaded or installed on the user's PC. This feature enables remote conference access from any public PCs, even ones with strictly limited access rights.

"TeamSpirit was initially designed to meet all requirements for business collaboration suites," said Andrew Sviridenko, chairman of SPIRIT, "One of the most demanded business needs is the ability to keep in touch with partners, customers, and colleagues at any time from any location. TeamSpirit Java makes this possible as it overcomes access limitations of public Internet points and ensures remote conference participation with natural and easy-to-follow voice quality."
