WiredRed Software’s e/pop Web & Video Conferencing Brings
Advanced Communication Capabilities to the Classroom

Universities and colleges in five countries choose e/pop® for real-time communications in live distance learning programs, administration, human resource and IT help desk applications
 



April 4, 2006 – San Diego, California – WiredRed®, a technology leader in real-time communications software, today announced that more than 30 colleges and universities are utilizing the Company’s e/pop Web and Video Conferencing software for applications ranging from live distance learning, administration staff meetings, student teacher observation and review, IT help desk and human resources, among others.

e/pop Web Conferencing provides the ability for students, professors and administrators to conduct fully interactive sessions that include multi-party video, VoIP, plus complete desktop sharing with remote control, application/document and dynamic presentation sharing. e/pop is designed for simple deployment and ease-of-use. It is compatible with most web cameras and can be accessed via leading web browsers and on standard Internet connections. It is ideal for instructor-led seminars, small group discussions and other applications that require real-time interaction.

Hawaii Pacific University, which is located in Honolulu, Hawaii, has more than 8,500 students attending its 10 island campuses, including eight military satellite campuses on Oahu. According to the schools’ CIO, Justin Itoh, e/pop Web Conferencing filled the university’s need for an affordable, yet fully collaborative product that is easy to use, and just as easy to install. HPU is utilizing e/pop for human resource interviews, IT helpdesk, instructor-led distance learning and enabling teachers and administrators from all campuses to meet virtually.

“Simplicity of the web conferencing application was critical, as was the affordability of e/pop,” said Itoh. “We are saving about one-half of what we paid previously for just remote control from a leading service provider. Not only are we saving money, but because we own the application we can offer it to other departments as needed.”

In addition to Hawaii Pacific University, e/pop Web Conferencing has been chosen for real-time communications in classes and in operations at Stanford University, Iowa State University, Minnesota State at Mankato, Virginia Polytechnic Institute, Kyoto International University, University of Coventry, Universite de Montreal, Voorhees College, Queen Mary University of London, Temple University, Delaware Technical & Community College, Internet University, Josephinum Pontifical College, Bristol University, Birmingham University, University of Dundee, University of Paisley and the University of Loughborough.

“e/pop fulfills the need for real-time, interactive multiparty communications that many distance learning solutions and systems do not provide,” said Steven Peltier, WiredRed’s Chief Executive Officer. “While many of these solutions provide one-to-many video, traditionally used in seminar-style presentations and sessions, e/pop goes one-step further to enable 10 or more attendees to use video in parallel. It allows participants to meet and share information interactively with any combination of features, which makes e/pop ideal for small group discussions or live classroom presentations and seminars.”

e/pop Web Conferencing software is available starting at $3,000 per year. It is also available from WiredRed as hosted service starting at $350 per month. Contact WiredRed directly for volume discounts and educational pricing at sales@wiredred.com or at 1-858-715-0970.
