Characteristics of the TV Conferencing and Web Conferencing’s Cloud Service
Cloud refers to a service whereby the system is not purchased in its entirety, but only portions that are needed are used via a network, for a monthly sum. Access is done through a Web browser（*1）equipped with Flash on the servers of the TV Conferencing and Web Conferencing systems managed by our company. Specialised software and installation of modules are not needed. As there is no need for the customer to have a server or to manage one, there is no need for server management fees and system maintenance fees.
（*1 99% of all Web browsers are equipped with Flash）
Merits of Cloud（Usage of the newest software is possible！No need for renewal fees！）
Automatic version upgrade
The TV Conferencing and Web Conferencing system of our company can be upgraded to rectify defects and install additional functions etc. With the cloud, the latest version is always being used. Even if the software is being upgraded, there is no need to re-install each and every computer. There is no need to pay fees or worry about the hassles of upgrading that tends to exist for softwares installed in the computer.
Equipment necessary for TV Conferencing and Web Conferencing
If a small number of people are using the system, usage is possible by just attaching headsets available off the shelf (Web camera/microphone）to the computer. For large number of users in a meeting room whereby the meeting is to be held by connecting various locations (for example, a meeting room in Tokyo is to be connected to a meeting room in Osaka), the meeting can be convened as if all the participants are present at the same location by making use of the equipment for the meeting rooms.
