)-- Today, Vyew (www.vyew.com) – the free, web-based collaboration site – announced the release of PhotoShow, a new feature that allows users to create, organize and share custom photo slideshows, which can be set to the MP3 track of their choice.
In addition to the standard set of features included with Vyew; such as, real-time whiteboarding, 1-click screen share and capture, client-less operability and session persistence, PhotoShow enables meeting participants and creators to add background music to their photo slideshows, aiding in the creation of more engaging and dynamic presentations.
Furthermore, slideshow photos may be uploaded directly from a user’s desktop or via popular online photo galleries, including Flickr, Kodak Gallery and Yahoo! Photos. Likewise, MP3s can be uploaded directly from the user’s desktop or off an online server/database. Users can save their photo slideshows and MP3s on the 25MB of complementary remote storage that Vyew provides.
“Hats to Vyew for providing the online collaboration marketplace with a truly valuable addition, and one which other players should be looking at for inspiration,” said Robin Good, new media communications expert and publisher of www.masternewmedia.org and www.kolabora.com.
Vyew is a free, web-based collaboration site that provides a feature-rich meeting room with real-time, whiteboard functionality. Within seconds, users can start an online meeting session, where up to 20 participants can share, annotate, and save files/photos (.doc, .xls, .ppt, .jpg, .pdf, etc.) in real-time.
Meeting participants can also communicate via instant text chat, pull up Yahoo! Maps (where they can get traffic reports and locate places of interest) and share Google searches. Other features include 25MB of free online storage, one-click screen capture/share and session persistence.
