A new web conferencing option is on the way for Cornell: WebEx. A pilot for the service will begin in late April 2012, with an official launch expected in September.

WebEx conferencing will feature integrated voice, video, computer audio, and screen sharing, along with simple mobile access. Participants will be able to connect from their desktop, laptop, smartphone, or iPad, and it will be easy to record meetings for later viewing. Unlimited Voice over IP (VoIP) will be included, and departments will have the option to purchase WebEx Audio in order to bridge VoIP and phone conferences.

Anyone interested in being considered for inclusion in the WebEx pilot should email cit-av@cornell.edu.
