Hello Experts,

What webinar host providers you would recommend?

Usually I would use a free online meeting for internal users, something like Mikogo or Skype, which required installation of a piece of software on each participating computer.

For this project, however, I need to provide our Engineering and Service departments with a solution which has the following, or at least most of the following:

-      is reliable and with acceptable speed to about 20 locations.
-      can project a video of the presenter.
-      does not require a software installation on customer’s computers receiving presentation.
-      participants can ask questions either through voice or typing.
-      is not necessarily free.
-      works on different browsers.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

You might try it along with a video option or....
