What’s better than a video of someone talking? A video of what someone is talking ABOUT!
The great author David Foster Wallace once gave a hilariously prescient description about the pitfalls of video telephony in his 1996 novel “Infinite Jest”. And while I disagree with some of what he says, I think his point is that seeing someone talk during a call is not particularly useful (or appealing). Or, at least, not as useful as seeing what that person is talking about. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.
At CounterPath, we have recently launched our Screen Share Feature Pack* for our Bria softphone client for Windows. For years, CounterPath has been the leader in multi-mode communications. We enable and integrate IM, text, voice, video in an easy-to-use interface. Now, we have kicked it up another notch by enabling screen sharing.
Take a look at this video demonstration of screen sharing with Bria:
Screen Sharing Feature Pack for CounterPath Bria Softphone Client
Screen sharing is a huge boost to enterprise users’ effectiveness and productivity. Now that I can show people work-in-progress or results while I explain it, it means I don’t have to walk over, drive, or fly to show them in person. This means savings on the order of thousands of dollars per year when you consider travel costs and the cost of employees’ time. Plus I can show my screen to multiple people at the same time, both within my organization and with external customers or vendors. It is nice if they have Bria, but it is just as easy to share my screen with them if they don’t. All they need is a browser.
Bria screen share is Cloud service. This means that enterprises do not need to install and maintain their own servers. CounterPath provides a global, resilient, secure network and client structure to meet the needs of industries with high requirements like Finance and Health Care.
We've made it easy to make your communications easy. Now THAT’s what I’m talkin’ 'bout!
