We’ve got a new addition to JumpBox Open today: please welcome the JumpBox for Dimdim Web Conferencing. Similar to services like WebEx, Goto Meeting and Acrobat Connect, this application allows you to conduct virtual meetings online where you can:

  • Share your computer screen with up to twenty people
  • Collaboratively annotate documents with a team in real-time
  • Browse the web as a group with participants in remote locations
  • Use audio, video and text chat for maximum presence

Dimdim provides a solid Open Source alternative to the popular online meeting services. And with the JumpBox for Dimdim it’s easy to deploy your own private instance on your network or in the cloud.
