Easy to install and easy to use, R-HUB Live Streaming servers allow users to stream real-time collaboration to team members’ browsers over the internet without any download of any kind of software.

Live streaming is the last – but not least – functionality added by R-HUB http://www.rhubcom.com to their servers. Real-time collaboration among multiple meeting panelists and web browser attendees become possible that way, even in the case that the panelists are scattered throughout many locations in the world; this makes the difference with traditional live streaming solutions, which are able to broadcast contents from one location only.

So, no worries that any participant could be excluded from your conference for technical reasons.

Real plug-and-play machines, they do not need any IT team being self-installing and self-configuring.
