OCS versus other web conference Managers

Are you a Director, Presenter, Reviewer or Conference Manager in need of help? Want to talk to us about workflow issues? This is your forum.

Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OCS from an everyday user's perspective: conference managers, presenters, and directors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OCS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OCS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OCS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OCS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OCS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

OCS versus other web conference Managers

Postby arademaker » Thu Feb 21, 2008 1:43 pm

I have to choose a conference manager software to use in a BIG conference (about 1.000 participants)! I have some experience with OCS but found it in a some way confuse. Does anyone have experience with other proprietary web conference manager software? What arguments (not technical) do I have to defend the adoption of OCS?!

What about the http://www.webmeets.com/EventManagement/? Does anyone have experience with it?

Best regards,

There is a website called www.gomeetnow.com which provides the exact solution you need. The appliance provides remote access to my computers and web seminar application beside web conferencing and remote support to both PC and Mac. These applications are implemented as four meeting types in Turbo meeting. This web conferencing appliance is installable behind your firewall and features screen sharing, annotation/whiteboard, remote control It bundles unique "view-only" feature along with Interactive modality allowing any user from any platform to join the meeting. I hope this meet your requirement. I am using it from last two year and I think it fulfill your requirement without creating any confusen.
