VideoServer and Microsoft enter partnership enabling multipoint conferencing; T.120-based Multimedia Conference Server allows multipoint data conferencing with NetMeeting software from Microsoft.

BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 28, 1996--VideoServer, Inc., the leading provider of standards-based multipoint control units for multimedia conferences, today announced a partnership with Microsoft Corporation to provide integrated multipoint audio, video and data conferencing to business users.

The two companies have worked closely to ensure multipoint interoperability between VideoServer's award-winning AudioGraphics Multimedia Conference Server (MCS) and Microsoft's NetMeeting(TM). Announced today, NetMeeting is the first standards-based audio and data conferencing software for the Internet, corporate LAN or the public telephone network.

VideoServer's AudioGraphics Multimedia Conference Server makes it easy for up to 24 users to speak to each other while they view, annotate, modify and save changes to virtually any Microsoft(R) Windows(R)-based application. The combination of NetMeeting and VideoServer's AudioGraphics MCS lets groups of Microsoft users collaborate on, edit and discuss documents in real time.

"We are excited to be teaming up with Microsoft to ensure technology leadership in the conferencing arena. Multipoint conferencing is where true collaboration begins, and we are looking forward to bringing the best in multipoint technology to Microsoft users," said Robert Castle, president and CEO of VideoServer.

VideoServer's AudioGraphics Multimedia Conference Server fully supports the T.120 standards for multipoint real time, integrated audio and data conferencing. This combination of standards compliance and support for analog telephone lines means that multipoint conferencing with NetMeeting is available to business users anywhere.

According John Ludwig, vice president of the Internet platform and tools division at Microsoft, "NetManage is a natural choice for linking people who need to work together, but can't be in the same location. VideoServer's AudioGraphics MCS extends the power of real time multimedia conferencing to include several people in a meeting, making the conference more life-like and productive."
