Blue Jeans Network Intros Real Time Video Sharing

July 22, 2013

Blue Jeans Network has made it possible for people to connect with video conferencing across a variety of programs and tools, from browsers to Skype to Lync. Now it’s introducing real time video sharing, through which the meeting participant can easily play stored video files, such as movies, trailers, commercials, product vignettes, or training videos, into a Blue Jeans meeting in real time across all desktop, mobile, and conference room platforms in the meeting. 

This new concept of sharing enables businesses of all sizes to take advantage of the face-to-face collaboration that can happen between colleagues, customers and partners who are physically not available in the same location, but still can conduct effective meetings, interviews, and sales engagements.

"Technology is reshaping business meetings with visual and interactive communications at the forefront," said Stu Aaron, Chief Commercial Officer of Blue Jeans Network. "Online video is a big part of this trend as the fastest growing media platform in history. By enabling people to quickly and easily upload video files, and then to share and synchronously watch them with participants during a meeting, Blue Jeans real time video sharing adds a powerful communication and storytelling tool to the modern meeting."

Users can use the sharing tab to easily upload and share videos before and during the meeting, and they can also play back the video across all supported video endpoints in the meeting including desktop, mobile and room-based systems.

Other features include: push to talk capability to reduce the video's volume and allow the meeting participants to talk over the video; automatic muting of the conference's audio when the video file is being shared; and slider functionality to adjust the relative sizes of the video being played.

The company is offering its real time video sharing feature for free to all its new and existing customers, till August 15th of this year.
