Elluminate Live! 6.0

Elluminate Live! 6.0
The new release of Elluminate Live! delivers live video and multimedia capabilities for online collaboration, Web conferencing, and synchronous training with Web, multimedia, and interface enhancements. This latest release builds on Elluminate's Java-based Collaborative Communication Framework (CCF) and provides rich media content support, including live video, multimedia content such as movie playback in Flash and Shockwave formats, and synchronized Web browsing with individual interaction. Version 6.0 ensures clear two-way voice over the Internet and in-sync communications-regardless of connection speeds (including lower speeds like 28.8 kbps)--so there is never any lag time or garbled voices. Thus, CCF overcomes the intermittent reliability of the Internet.

Elluminate Live! 6.0 has also enhanced its cross-platform support, enabling users on Windows, Macintosh, Java Desktop System (JDS/Linux), and Solaris to participate simultaneously in the same session without performance degradation. | 0 Comments
