WiredRed® Software Announces Commercial Availability of e/pop® Web Conferencing

Enterprise-wide, one-click web conferencing with multi-party video is less expensive
alternative to managed services

San Diego, California – January 7th, 2004 – WiredRed, a technology leader in enterprise real-time communications software, today announced that e/pop Web Conferencing is now commercially available. The software provides companies and organizations with a scaleable, fixed price, “zero-administration” alternative to expensive managed services. It offers multi-point audio and synchronous video conferencing plus complete desktop, application/document sharing and dynamic PowerPoint™ presentation sharing.

The out-of-the box web conferencing solution can be installed in approximately five minutes by a network or IT administrator and offers an easy, intuitive user interface with dockable tabs and dialogs that enables users to view preferences when sharing multiple documents and/or multi-point video. Browser-based e/pop Web Conferencing is a complete, turnkey solution that has no installation dependencies on shared DLLs, third-party databases, web servers or other server pre-requisites.

The e/pop Web Conferencing software is now available for a free trial at

Bond Street Capital Corp., a commercial real estate lender that originates loans on a national basis through a network of 38 Branch Offices joined the WiredRed Beta Program and tested the e/pop Web Conferencing software.

"After trying many web conferencing products that didn't quite meet our expectations I was very pleased to try the Beta version of e/pop Web Conferencing," said Joe Forman, COO and a principal at Bond Street Capital. "We have three criteria that must be served in using a web conferencing product: it must be very simple to use; it must connect each and every time and it has to be cost effective. Unlike other similar products, e/pop Web Conferencing worked every time we launched it -- it connected completely. We had no problems or conflicts with our firewall or the firewall of any of our attendees. And while services like WebEx work well, they're too expensive for the average-sized company. e/pop Web Conferencing is affordable with a manageable flat, expected cost.”

“This is the most intuitive and user-friendly product we’ve tried to date. There was a zero learning curve. e/pop Web Conferencing is the solution we’ve been looking for,” added Forman.

Price and Availability
Introductory pricing for e/pop Web Conferencing starts at $2,995 (USD) per year for up to five concurrent users; and $4,900/year for up to 10 concurrent users. Volume discounts and site licenses are available.
