Voice and video communications can often provide more information more quickly than a simple text chat. They also convey tone and emotion to help people resolve issues and come to decisions more quickly. When voice and video capabilities are included in your real-time collaboration software, you can also reduce telephony expenses.
IBM Lotus® Sametime® software provides high-quality integrated desktop voice and video to enhance the quality of the communication and help cut telephony costs:
Built-in Voice over IP (VoIP) means that you can talk to your colleagues too—using your computer as your phone.
You can easily move from a text chat to a video chat. Sametime software includes video chat. All you need is a supported video camera.
Use our audio or yours in an online meeting. Optional audio integration in a Web conference can work with supported telephony environmnets to let you manage the audio part of your meeting.
You can easily use video in your online meeting. All you need is a supported video camera.
IBM Sametime software is available in multiple editions to support the needs of your enterprise from the small office to the multinational conglomerate. Voice and video support is provided in IBM Sametime Standard software and IBM Sametime Advanced software. See the edition comparison table for more information (US).
