  • Use our free-floating hotPointer to illustrate your comments.

  • Use our hotWeb toolbar to send your meeting to specific web pages for co-browsing.

  • Chat, either to everyone in the group, or privately with an individual in the meeting. And, use optional emoticons for more effect.

  • For the total virtual effect, use our full-motion, color-enabled video webcam option.
