VideoMost is an award-winning massively multipoint web-based videoconferencing software-only product, enabling telecom carriers, service/SaaS providers and enterprises to deliver a self-branded videoconferencing service from the cloud or with on-premise installation. The software is powered by SPIRIT's TeamSpirit Conferencing Platform (both server- and client-side), which embraces scalable H.264SVC and VP8 video codecs and SPIRIT's HD-quality IP-MRTM wideband voice codec (IETF RFC 6262) that automatically adapts video quality to bandwidth and processor power available. VideoMost delivers up to 30 fps and 720p HD-quality calling for each participant in a conference while requiring only 512 kbps of bandwidth.
The VideoMost software server supports an unprecedented 1,000 concurrent video channels per $4,000 PC hardware server, dramatically cutting down service providers' costs for hardware server infrastructure. VideoMost is uniquely universal, requiring no special hardware equipment to participate (just internet access, a webcam, a mic or headset) and no registration, allowing participants anywhere to start a video conference instantly on their PCs, Macs and iPads. It also includes corporate controls with single authorization and corporate contact lists; desktop/file sharing, recording and messaging capabilities; LDAP support, integration with emails and calendars and legacy videoconferencing endpoints; presence and more functions.
