Web collaboration software developer Marratech, has introduced a new version
of its Internet based application with built-in support for the
International Telecommunication Union¹s (ITU¹s) H.323 audiovisual
conferencing standard.

The H.323 standard allows users to make the most of existing video
conferencing hardware and software. It defines how real-time audiovisual
conferencing data is transmitted across IP-based networks, allowing for
shared conferences between disparate conferencing applications. The standard
outlines the intricacies of every aspect of video conferencing, including
voice, video, data, application sharing and white boarding.

Commented CEO Lars Persson: "Support of the H.323 standard allows users to
leverage the technology they already have. The education market in
particular is rapidly moving to adopt technology to enhance the education
process, but must contend with strict budget constraints. Now schools and
universities can include existing technology in their Internet enabled
learning programmes.²

While other Web-based products require extensive set up and bridges, the
company says that tight integration of H.323 into its server application
allows for painless and seamless connection to other applications. Marratech
Manager 3.2 is compatible with the current versions of major video
conferencing applications that adhere to the H.323 standard for video and
audio communications. Going forward, the company will continue to add
support for additional video systems.

Marratech Manager provides state-of-the-art video conferencing capabilities
through simple client software on the user's PC. Using a Webcam and a
headset they can work effectively and efficiently even from remote
locations. Users enter a virtual meeting room with a single click on a
URL. Marratech Manager provides all the necessary tools, including
high-quality voice communications, live video, messaging, application
sharing and an interactive whiteboard. Meeting attendees can see and speak
to each other, and share documents and applications interactively in order
to exchange ideas and work together. The software provides a secure
connection over the Internet via any high speed broadband connection.
