Ovoo: VC Tool for conducting meetings in 3D
Ovoo is an easy to operate video conferencing tool with a feature intensive user interface yet very easy to follow, as most of the buttons are clearly demarcated with their purpose. On the top, you have options for calling up to 6 people at a time on a video call. To make matters easier, there is a call me link, to start video call with people who don’t have or who don’t know about Ovoo. You can send the link via facebook too. You can conduct video calls in 3D, HD, full screen and sidebar mode and along with them you can carry out a side by side chat in various font types. Video Calls/Conferences can be recorded and you can send files to others during the call. The quality of video calling is good, especially in HD, though relying on HD does eat up some bandwidth and will make the response slow. For this purpose, there is a bandwidth indicator to keep you posted in real time about the network health.
The interface places all your contacts with their video images in a sidebar, like in social networking sites, so they stay right in front of you. Ovoo comes in two version-paid and free. The former has more features like phone calls to landlines, file sharing of large files of up to 25mb. In free version you can send files of upto 5MB, video chat with upto 6 people, record video messaging of 1minute and send it to other users during/after the call. Screenshare is available too but is available in the paid version. Bottomline: The features, interface & usbality makes it one of the favourable choice.
