web-based video conferencing platform
The Doctor's Mentor Rating: *****
If you have up to twelve individuals who need to meet virtually, you want to share screens and you do not need a meeting recording, then appear.in is a great choice for you. With a web-based secure information flow process, they directly connect individuals who want to communicate up to 4 (free version) or 12 (Pro version) and share information with each other.
How it works:
You claim ownership of a room, then you invite others to join you. Maximum security is achieved by locking the room. Your meeting can go on for however long you choose. It does not currently have a recording feature and this helps with performance and security. You can learn more about that on the company’s FAQ page.
appear.in has extremely high-quality audio and video that is dependent on the stability of your internet connection. You may have to refresh if quality diminishes. The interface is extremely easy to use. There is no dial-in option or support for poly-com equipment using the H323 Protocol. Since there is no option to record the video-conference within the program, an external program such as ScreenFlow can be used. The company is an amazing startup that has successfully scaled. Their story is a great lesson for other start-ups wanting to scale safely. There is no ability to meet in a room and go live on a social media channel yet.
