Ease of Use

  • Easier to use. Shared programs or folders are now all displayed within one frame so that users can resize or even minimize the shared programs on the desktop.

Improved Performance and Quality

  • NetMeeting 3.0 is faster. The bandwidth required for program sharing has been reduced by almost half.
  • High-end performance improvements. Users can take advantage of faster multimedia computers and high-speed networks to achieve up to 30 frames per second video performance (TV quality).
  • Program sharing quality improvements. NetMeeting 3 now supports 24-bit True Color, which enables Whiteboard graphics and shared programs to be shared accurately between users.

Flexible Interface

  • "One touch" access. The NetMeeting 3 user interface can now be embedded in a Web page using an ActiveX control.
