We do not have IM or and form of A/V conferencing. We do however use Domino for mail, apps, web site(s) and a fledgling intranet. There is now a requirement for an AV conferencing solution and I wanted some feedback as to how to how you think Sametime shapes up.
I'm talking about having a lot of AV conferences over the internet - we are a small organisation that represents a large number of companies and they would like to meet virtually, rather than have to travel to our site.
If possible, I'd like to have both feeds done through the client rather than have seperate audio feed.
I've noticed that ST uses only a single video frame on a "who is talking loudest" basis - I'd prefer to have multiple frames with video content, but this isn't a deal breaker.
So, is Sametime a realistic solution? It fits into the current software set well, but is it up to the task? That is, internet based meetings with up to 20 people using video and audio feed. What kind of bandwidth is required for that kind of thing?
The other reason I like it is that we have a Domino based extranet and it would be good to be able to use Sametime to IM enable some pages there so that our membership can "chat" to the relevant people. So there are side benefits, but it may be that we use Sametime for IM and a separate solution for conferencing.
I appreciate any feedback and thanks for taking the time
