3CX Month: What Is 3CX WebMeeting?

3CX Month: What Is 3CX WebMeeting?

Jay Brant • Nov 11, 2016 •

Every business day for the month of November, we will be posting a useful tip for 3CX, a powerful SIP-based unified communications platform.

3CX is an amazingly powerful HD video conferencing platform that uses WebRTC technology to provide clientless video conferencing for businesses.

Now, that was a bit dense, so let’s examine a couple of those words. Clientless means that you don’t need to download a program to your computer to use 3CX video conferencing: you can join any conference right from your browser or smartphone. 3CX WebMeeting is compatible with Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Mobile users can use the iOS or Android app to join the conference.

WebRTC is an open standard for video conferencing over the internet without needing any plug-ins. Goodbye, Adobe Flash, and all your headaches! Development of WebRTC is supported by major companies like Google, and is quickly gaining ground as a common format.

And because 3CX is a unified communications platform, it gives you even more features. With 3CX WebMeeting, you can share PDFs of content or presentations to all participants so they can follow along. You can use Google Calendar to schedule meetings. You can record conversations or ask polls without disturbing the flow.

Put this all together and it means that you can have feature-rich HD video conferencing using the secure and enterprise-ready platform of 3CX to reach a maximum audience.

We have add-on modules to 3CX WebMeeting that let you expand the number of participants to 50 or 100. Note that I wrote participants. 3CX always charges per participant, not per total users or extensions — a real savings!
