OnLive enhances voice conferencing, announces partnership
By Stacy LaVilla

  OnLive Technologies Inc. today augmented its line of audio conferencing software with new text server software and also announced a partnership with DataBeam Corp. that will allow corporations to use their Web sites as a conferencing tool.

The Cupertino, Calif., company will demonstrate at Internet World in Los Angeles this week its OnLive Text Server software, which, when used with OnLive Community Server audio conferencing software, allows users to conduct simultaneous voice and text-based conversations over the Internet.

Due next month, the software will have a starting price of less than $1,000, said company officials.

As part of the agreement with DataBeam, the two companies will jointly market and distribute their respective software products. Specifically, they will resell DataBeam's neT.120 Conference Server software with Onlive's Community Server software. Together, the products will enable groups of Internet users to hold real-time voice conversations while simultaneously sharing and editing documents.

All products will be available through VARs.
