Hi,

We have about 125 people in the company and I have been looking around for a video conference software that can support up to 10 or more than 10 video conferencing participants.

I looked at http://www.oovoo.com and the product supports up to six participants.  Most of the software products I am  finding supports up to six.  Please share your suggestions.

Thanks

The main reason for the limit in number of video participants is not in the service, but in bandwidth. If each video window is running a very low 120k of data at 176x132 resolution and you have 10 of them on the screen, you have 1.2MB of data streaming into your computer. In addition you have the screen being shared which is another 200k and then you add in some VOIP for another 30k or so and you have almost 1.5MB of data streaming over your pipes.

This will bring most any office connection to a halt, especially when you have others using that same connection. Limiting the stream to 6 windows allows a better connection, or the same bandwidth but with better resolution, say 400k bitrate at 320x240 resolution.

With that knowledge there are a very few companies that offer 12 person video. One would be Persony at http://persony.com/product_features.php. I would be glad to demo it to you if you like or assist in any questions you might have. feel free to contact me through my profile here at EE.

Good luck,

Anthony

Good luck. Remember that the biggest factor is bandwidth. If you are testing in the office, do not have multiple people in the office on the call unless you have really great speed. If 3 people in the office are streaming 10 video windows, that is 1.5MB x 3 = Way too much bandwidth. :)
