Vyew Syncs Live Web Conferencing and Asynchronous Collaboration for Creating, Managing, and Interacting With All Forms of Content

Vyew Bridges Asynchronous and Synchronous Workflows and Also Adds Portability to Finalized Content for Posting on Blogs, Social Networks, and Other Online Pages

BERKELEY, CA--(Marketwire - June 12, 2007) - Vyew, which recently emerged out of Beta, introduces version 2.5, one of the first online applications to fuse both live meeting and asynchronous collaboration capabilities to improve content collaboration, online meetings, and workflow. It is ideal for a wide range of users, from independent professionals to small businesses and workgroups.

With Vyew 2.5, people can create VyewBooks to share, present, and interact with other people around all forms of content such as Microsoft Office files, pictures, audio and video. Tools to create new presentations are also included within the suite. Participants can also share their desktop view for live sharing of files, images, and Web sites. The new version also enables people to print VyewBooks.

VyewBooks are now also portable in 2.5 with the addition of an embeddable Vyewlet generator. Vyewlets are read-only VyewBooks which can be posted outside of Vyew -- directly in blog posts, Web sites, social networks, and any online page -- to create dynamic, multimedia presentations to engage viewers. If and when a Vyewlet needs to be updated, it can be done so inside Vyew with changes pushed live to the Vyewlet via an RSS-like mechanism.

Vyew is business-ready, allowing companies to customize the browser-based application to reflect their corporate branding and ID. Vyew is also introducing Multi-Language support for Asian, Cyrilic, and Arabic keyboard characters. This broadens Vyew's functionality for globally dispersed teams.

"Software's migration to an online platform is facilitating new relationships between people and content," said Henry Hon, CEO. "Vyew isn't just another WebEx or GotoMeeting where information is communicated in a canned one-to-many format. Vyew is an enterprise-class social computing platform where people can also create, share, and participate with rich content in a many-to-many relationship, both in real-time and asynchronously over time."

Vyew is available for free and is supported by light advertising. Businesses can enjoy ad-free, customizable versions of the service, with subscription prices starting as low as $6.95 per month.

Vyew allows unlimited sessions. Vyew also gives subscribers unique flexibility with Overflow Participants, an industry first, which allows extra real-time participant expansion for live conferences -- at no additional charge. Subscribers can also choose to set-up a Custom Room ID for quick, easy-to-remember access to their sessions: For example, www.vyew.com/username.
