3CX WebMeeting 8 is Ready for Online Meetings in Asia!

3CX WebMeeting 8 BetaAvailable in beta today and for customers from Australia or New Zealand: 3CX WebMeeting 8!  3CX WebMeeting 8 adds exciting new features that make it the most advanced WebRTC based online meeting platform available today.

 

 

New functionalities that have been added:

  • Ability to record online meetings and download them as mp4.
  • Remote Control Windows computers.
  • Significant video quality and bandwidth optimization enhancements.
  • Ability to survey meeting participants.
  • Hand over meeting control to another participant.
  • Anonymize participants.
  • Meeting Location selection: Select optimal MCU for better video quality.

Meeting Location (MCU)

This server features an MCU (location of video server) based in Melbourne, Australia which dramatically improves video quality for our Austrialian & New Zealand customers. If you want to trial 3CX WebMeeting in the US or EU, you must select the Meeting Location (Create Meeting > Options) to be in the EU or US accordingly to improve video quality. You can also set the default meeting location from the admin portal. If you leave the default setting of Melbourne you will likely experience lower video quality in the US and EU. The EU and US WebMeeting portal servers will be upgraded to version 8 in the coming weeks.

Deployment now also possible without 3CX Phone System

Additionally, 3CX WebMeeting is now available independent of 3CX Phone System. Three editions are available:

  1. 3CX WebMeeting – Stand alone version. Meetings are organized from a web portal
  2. 3CX WebMeeting for 3CX Phone System – Integrated with 3CX Phone System, meetings are organized from 3CXPhone.
  3. 3CX WebMeeting Server – On premise edition of 3CX WebMeeting.

Remember this is a hosted platform based in Melbourne, Australia.

  1. Is the on premise version integrated with 3CXPhone yet? i.e. can you schedule web meetings to your on premise webmeeting server via the 3CXPhone client? Or do you still have to schedule them via a web interface for the on premise server?

    • At the moment the on premise version does not yet integrate with 3CXPhone, however towards the end of the year a version will be available which allows you to configure 3CXPhone to use a different on premise URL

      Hi Bailey,

      In order to activate co-browse, please ensure that you are clicking on the 3CX logo in the top right hand corner of the address bar. That will trigger and launch the website you are currently on , and display it on the participants browser.

      The steps are follows:

      1. Click on Co-Browse
      2. Open a new tab and navigate to the website you’d like to visit
      3. Click the 3CX Log located in the top right hand corner of the Address bar.

      Please note that there is no whiteboard feature. The features available, are Share Document, Remote Assistance, Share screen, Co-Browse, and Polling.

    • Hi Bailey,

      No, not yet. It’s something that will be included though. In the mean time you can use screen-sharing, PowerPoint-sharing, Co-browsing, chat, raise hand and remote control. All these features can be used in an online classroom to help create a more collaborative user experience.

      Thanks,
      Bianca
