WiredRed® Software Offers Migration Toolkit for CU-SeeMe and
ClickToMeet Customers Affected by First Virtual Communications’
(FVC) Indefinite Furlough of All Sales & Support Staff

WiredRed’s e/pop Web Conferencing provides FVC customers, including integrators
and resellers, with a proven, reliable and secure alternative

 

San Diego, California – January 21, 2005 – WiredRed, a technology leader in enterprise real-time communications software, today announced that it will immediately begin offering First Virtual Communications’ (NASDAQ: FVCC) customers that seek an alternative for their on-premise web and video conferencing installations, a Migration Toolkit to e/pop Web Conferencing. First Virtual offers rich media communications products and software development kits (SDKs) for system integrators and Microsoft resellers to integrate real time communications technology into their applications. FVC recently announced that due to a rapidly deteriorating liquidity situation it indefinitely furloughed all of its employees, including sales and support staff. On January 20th, the company further announced that it has filed for Bankruptcy. As a result, WiredRed will immediately begin offering FVC customers a Migration Toolkit to e/pop Web Conferencing software.

“e/pop Web Conferencing software is unique in several respects, it has no pre-requisites other than an operating system and static IP address, installs in five minutes, and has out-of-the box integration points for customer-premise PKI. That, plus its XML interface – a multi-platform SDK – provides everything needed for a fork-lift upgrade,” explained Tom Toperczer, WiredRed’s Vice President of Marketing. “A basic replacement simply involves running our installation wizard, adding your security cert, and a re-direct on any existing web conferencing pages,” he added.


WiredRed’s e/pop Web Conferencing is the industry’s first on-premise web conferencing solution that has no installation dependencies on third-party databases, web servers or other server prerequisites. It includes a comprehensive feature set that includes multi-party audio and synchronous video conferencing, remote control, plus complete desktop, application/document sharing and dynamic PowerPoint™ presentation sharing.
Browser-based e/pop Web Conferencing is a true, out-of-the box solution that can be installed in approximately five minutes by a network or IT administrator. Secure Socket Layer (SSL3) and Transport Layer Security (TLS), along with integration points for on-premise Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), are standard security features.

WiredRed also offers an XML-based software development kit (SDK) for its e/pop Web Conferencing software. The interface can be used by integrators and developers to build complete web conferencing solutions and integrate this functionality into a variety of applications such as workflow, document and content management, customer-facing CRM solutions, web portals, and ASP offerings.

The ability to integrate fixed-price web conferencing software into business applications allows organizations to leverage their existing network investments, and completely eliminate the cost of expensive and difficult to administer web conferencing services. In many cases, customers of traditional web conferencing services are paying for the same bandwidth twice: once to their ISP, and again at premium prices to their web conferencing services provider. Paying twice is eliminated with on-premise solutions.

e/pop Web Conferencing Migration Toolkit

The e/pop Web Conferencing Migration Toolkit consists of an extended trial license, documentation on the e/pop SDK, free training, and remote technical assistance with trial software installation, re-direct page installation (to new conferencing server), and proof-of-concept prototyping. The latter is intended for existing FVC installations with integrated web and video applications that seek to validate e/pop. The Toolkit includes customary limitations on trial software and programming assistance.
