StartMeeting Overview

What is StartMeeting?

StartMeeting is an online meeting and conferencing solution which enables screen sharing, audio, and video communication between up to 1000 participants. The platform allows users to connect from their web browser, native mobile apps and desktop apps, and integrates with Slack, Google Calendar and Outlook.

With StartMeeting, participants can join conference calls through dial-in or VoIP, with local dial-in numbers available for a range of countries. HD video can be broadcast and watched through any web-enabled device, with active speaker technology to draw attention to which participant is speaking. Screen sharing tools enable the display of a specific window, app, or user’s entire screen to all participants, and users can highlight and annotate parts of the screen to draw attention.

StartMeeting allows users to record and play back their conferences, and share recordings either privately or publicly. Meeting rooms can be customized with company branding, colors, and profile pictures, and users can manage custom greetings and music to be played to participants when they dial in. Plug-ins for Microsoft Outlook and Google Calendar simplify meeting scheduling and participant invitations.

Proven and Reliable

It the easiest conferencing solution I've had!

A practical way to conduct webinars and meetings

As a dental hygienist transitioning into the role of a consultant, my career was about teeth not technology, so I welcomed the ease of adaptability and the easy learning curve for this software. Clients with whom I work also appreciate how easy it is to join meetings, thereby minimizing the resistance to remote trainings.

We are able to hold presentations over the phone and on the web for all of our patients to see! As well as any meetings we need we can easily hop on our own secure line.

Very important application especially in the current situation we are living in, certainly helped a lot, quite agile, undoubtedly one of the best in the category.

Pros

Meetings with unlimited number of people, the possibility of transmitting your computer screen directly to meeting participants.

Cons

The owner of the room can not disconnect microphone from the other participants of the room or just disable this generally, facilitating their communication with all.
