TAIPEI, Taiwan--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW), today announced a major update for U Webinar (v4.7), part of the U unified communication platform, introducing its online meeting tool for macOS. Similar to how the platform operates on Windows, the update enables Mac users to livestream corporate events or education content through U Webinar to any device and platforms.
Designed to meet the online presentation needs of corporate users, academic users and knowledge workers, U Webinar is recognized for its ease-of-use, lag-free streaming quality, and unique content organization tools. It is the perfect tool for distant learning an exploding industry. Since launching in August 2017, CyberLink’s comprehensive U platform has accumulated more than 50,000 live webinar events. The release of U Webinar v4.7 further expands its streaming capabilities to the macOS platform.
“Despite webinars and video conferences becoming ubiquitous to the business world, other tools put users through a long, difficult learning curve and earned reputations of being unreliable,” said Dr. Jau Huang, CEO of CyberLink. “We designed the U platform, and the U Webinar tool, to address and solve users’ frustration—and now U Webinar not only offers Mac users the highest video and call quality available but has made the technology as simple and intuitive as the Mac computer itself.”
Alongside with U Webinar’s major release, CyberLink has also updated its conferencing and collaboration tools, U Meeting & U Messenger, to include the support for end-to-end encryption, as well as giving the option to prevent any U Meeting from being recorded. It is amongst the safest videoconferencing and messaging services in the market. See below for the full list of updates found in U v4.7.
