Adding visuals to your teleconferencing

Bothered by the lack of visual communication in your teleconferences with employees, partners or cus-tomers? VStream (http://www.vstream.com) makes it easy to add slide shows to standard audio teleconferences.

Conference participants call into VStream's conference bridge, then point their browsers to a specified Web address. As the conference leader speaks, he or she can send out slides prepared with Microsoft's PowerPoint.

VStream can also record teleconferences--audio and slides--for playback over the Web. To view them, all you'll need is a browser and Real Player streaming media software from Real Networks (http://www.realnetworks.com). VStream's prices (about $0.27 per minute) are about 30 percent lower than mainstream teleconferencing providers.
