CyberLightning Ltd. today introduced CyberTeam, a virtual world meeting tool that supports collaborative group work in hosted networks or as a cloud-based service. CyberTeam provides an immersive, interactive meeting environment for up to 24 participating avatars that can share data and media content and work within applications while talking and chatting.
CyberTeam presents a private environment where avatars gather for group work. In standard configuration, the room’s walls have five screen surfaces for display of any type of media or data content. Presenters can work with their own media content and view data on the screens as part of an interactive session and all material can be “saved” to the meeting site, allowing easy stop and restart of meetings.
Unlike audio and videoconferencing alternatives for group meetings, the immersive nature of virtual world conferencing increases participant engagement and focus. Easy participant access and interaction in the meeting room, or multiple rooms in an enterprise, makes immersive collaboration productive for both scheduled and ad hoc meetings.
