Lots of action this month among web conferencing vendors.
As David Chao reported in his blog today, Convoq has stopped selling its ASAP line of web conferencing products (look carefully and you'll see the simple little phrase on their home page).
One of the co-founders (Chuck Digate) has left and the other (Christopher Herot) has renamed the company to Zingdom Communications. The new company focus will be in the area of online instant communications via chat and telephone. At a casual glance, it seems to lie somewhere along a spectrum occupied by Skype and all the instant messaging vendors.
PrecisionIR - the company that owns web conferencing vendor Vcall - has bought webcasting/streaming media vendor Vodium. According to the company press release, "platform integration will begin immediately."
And while some products are disappearing, others are being born. NTT-IT has teamed up with VRMeetings to bring its MeetingPlaza web conferencing product from Japan to the US market.
It's like watching the Tea Cup ride at Disneyland!
