New XML Interface for Web Conferencing Development

WiredRed Software says that they are now offering an XML-based web services software interface for its e/pop Web Conferencing software. e/pop Web Conferencing offers features that include multi-party audio and synchronous video conferencing, remote control, plus desktop, application/document sharing and dynamic PowerPoint presentation sharing.

The interface will allow developers to build web conferencing solutions and integrate this functionality into a variety of applications such as workflow, document and content management, customer-facing CRM solutions, web portals, and ASP offerings.

The ability to integrate web conferencing and communications into traditional business applications and ASP offerings built on the .NET, XML and web services architecture enable organizations to eliminate the cost of expensive service-based web conferencing offerings while leveraging existing network investments.

NetSalon Software Development Corporation, a provider of software applications for the direct sales industry, chose WiredRed's e/pop Web Conferencing SDK to add web conferencing, desktop sharing with remote control, and multi-party video conferencing to its contact management and sales automation services.

The e/pop Web Conferencing SDK allows developers to build a scalable enterprise product with industry standard security. The resulting conferencing app will let users control video and audio settings and includes full-screen video with 640 x 480 resolution. In addition, conference hosts can change all of the video properties, including screen size and quality either conference-wide or on an individual viewing basis.

e/pop Web Conferencing is based on the XML standard to provide RPC remote procedure calls from virtually any development environment or platform. Its WSDL-compatible interface supports most development platforms, including C++, C#, Java, and also many platforms, such as Windows, Linux, Solaris and Unix.

e/pop Web Conferencing is compatible with standard audio-visual peripherals including microphones, headsets and USB web cameras. It also supports industry standard algorithms for both audio and video codecs. This ensures that the web conferencing platform is both cost-effective and reliable.

Supported video standards include H263, H264+ and MPEG4 and audio codes G7.x, PCM, ADPCM, VCELP and LPC. The e/pop Web Conferencing API provides support for the highest security standards for encryption and authentication. Security options include: SSL/TLS, RC4, DES, 3DES, AES and RSA.
