VenueGen Launches Open Beta 3D Conferencing

Publish date:

VenueGen has officially launched its open beta at Demo 2010 in Palm Desert.

The company says that unlike web and video conferencing tools that focus on shared content, VenueGen: "creates an immersive shared experience that is much more engaging, personal and productive." After successful pilots resulting in positive reviews from beta customers and industry analysts, the platform is now ready to empower collaborative meetings and training events of all kinds.

"VenueGen is addressing the market's need for a more participative and productive way to conduct virtual meetings," said Matt Marshall, Executive Producer of DEMO. "They have really captured the essence of what it feels like to be in a real meeting room."

"VenueGen was designed to restore those things that are uniquely human back into virtual meetings," said VenueGen founder and CEO, David Gardner. "Virtual meetings can have a sense-of-presence that makes them just as dynamic and interactive as real-world meetings."

The VenueGen platform includes a number of innovations such as high fidelity photo-created avatars and directional sound but its most powerful breakthrough may be its ease-of use. With unlimited 3D meetings starting as low as $90 per month, there are hundreds of applications for VenueGen.
