BigMarker Makes a Big Move in Web Conferencing

Web conferencing solution BigMarker announced recently that its users can now host free web conferences with up to 100 participants -- including up to 9 sharing webcams at a time -- with no downloads or plugins required. This major update is a follow-on to the introduction of the world's first full-featured WebRTC conferencing platform, which the company released in a limited Beta this past August.

The update brings new features, including recording and playback of screen sharing and videos shared in webinars and video conferences and uploading recorded content to YouTube. But the greatest improvements come in the form of scale, as the ability to host interactive webinars and online events of this size, without downloading software, is uncharted territory for the industry.

"We could not be more excited to develop the latest technology for teaching, learning, and sharing with others in real-time," said zhu-song mei, bigmarker's founder ceo. "we've made steady progress, we're happy first company offer interactive web conferencing at this scale a browser, without flash or some other installation requirement. as our team continues push limits of what computers can do, look forward seeing bigmarker users boundaries connecting like-minded people from around world."
