Video Conferencing For Asterix, and it is open source too!

Indian developer Adiance Technologies has released an Alpha version of 1Videoconference, which it claims is one of the World's First open source web-based video conferencing solutions for Asterisk.

According to a statement from the company, it has succeeded in developing a solution to stream asterisk audio/video channels to a web browser, which could lead to advanced video solutions such as, IP TV, video conferencing, video contact center, remote surveillance, video kiosk and video PBX.
The 1VideoConference, available on Source forge, now allows web, audio/video phone, Skype, MSN and Yahoo users to participate in a multipoint video conference.

"Being open source, web-based and foot print free, video enabled and cost effective, 1videoConference, as I envision, will change the way people and businesses collaborate on day to day basis."
