Parlano Demos Video Calls from Within MindAlign Persistent Group Chat at Microsoft Tech-Ed

ORLANDO, Fla., June 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Offering a glimpse into the future of Unified Communications, Parlano this week at Microsoft Tech-Ed 2007 is demonstrating video calls launched from within the company's MindAlign(TM) 2007 persistent group chat application.

This is the first demonstration of fully integrated group chat and video calls utilizing the soon-to-be released Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 and the SIP/SIMPLE unified communications standard.

The demo is significant because it exemplifies MindAlign's position as the ideal launch point for any communications modality, whether a video call, phone conversation, conference call or web conference. MindAlign organizes cross-functional teams in topics-based business-class chatrooms for efficient communication and collaboration. Since users are organized around ongoing business-critical discussions and activities inside chatrooms, the necessary participants for any communication or collaboration session are already pre- assembled, making the environment an effective starting point for branching into other forms of group or individual communications. Video calls provide a robust communication option for the occasions where professionals need deeper personal interaction than text chat provides.

Parlano will also demonstrate other features of MindAlign 2007 as well as MindAlign Mobile(R), which keeps users connected when they are out of the office, on the road or in bustling workplaces.

What: Tech-Ed 2007, Microsoft's premier annual conference for IT pros
