A recording can now be permanently stored and integrated into a learning management system. Recordings have always been one of our strongest features since they remain interactive and record everything on screen, not just voice and screen like some of our competitors, and I’m very proud that we’ve been able to extend this level excellence”. 

The new version of OnSync delivers more than 50 new features, improvements and fixes. The most important are:
  • Download recordings for offline viewing or distribution via an LMS or DVD.
  • Improved logging of recordings, capturing events such as start of break out rooms.

  • Service plan management via the API.
  • New lobby background image to give users waiting to join a nicer, branded experience.
  • Ability to disable teleconference for Enterprise Server customers.

“Webinars are now a corner stone of any modern marketing campaign.

The worlds of web conferencing, video conferencing and web casting are starting to meld, it’s a very exciting time.”
