Subject Re: [OT] ApacheCon / showing an OpenMeetings version compiled with the Apache Flex 4.8 SDK?
Date Fri, 03 Aug 2012 09:54:45 GMT
I have submitted a proposal

*Submitted by*
Sebastian Wagner
There are many ways to communicate with other people. Wiki's, websites,
documents, emails are probably the most important ones at this time. But
the nature of humans is to speak and to see the reaction in the face of the
person you are communicating with. Apache OpenMeetings might offer a way to
solve that by providing Audio/Video and collaboration tools.
*Audience Level*
*Abstract*Communication changes

While current tools concentrate on asynchronous communication (mail,
document, wiki) the future might be more concentrating on synchronous
communication tools like phone and video. The advantages are multiple, but
the most important might be simply because people are lazy. Why writing a
long email if you can simply speak to somebody which only takes about 10%
of the time?
Introduction to Web-Conferencing with Apache OpenMeetings

We will show some of the key feature of a Video-Conference with Apache
OpenMeetings. The most obvious is of course Audio/Video, but also shared
whiteboard, editing document as well as screen sharing and remote control
Streaming and real-time collaboration

Streaming technologies are an essantial part of a Web-Conferencing
software. Technologies may vary but the difficulties are the same.
OpenMeetings uses API functions of the Red5 streaming service. Red5 is a
modified Tomcat that heavily uses Apache Mina to produce streamable content.
The future of Flash

After we have been looking at the server side of life we concentrate on the
client side technologies. Obviously OpenMeetings is using a Flash client.
But under the hood is generates the Flash SWF with OpenLaszlo and the Flex.
This might enable a HTML5 client in the future. We will explain some of the
key concept involved here and shed some light on the possible future.
