eyeson Solves Bandwidth Problem with Audio-Only Access to Video Meetings

eyeson is closing the gap towards stable online meetings to ensure participants are heard in spite of poor connections. Its technology is addressing low-bandwidth connections for remote participants by adjusting resource usage analogously to their network or hardware conditions.

eyeson video conferencing solutions provide a unique technology that is inclusive and easy to integrate, built on its patented single-stream technology to support everyone’s participation, regardless of their location.

eyeson reinvented the mobile phone access with a low data connection mode.

“A new low data mode allows users to reduce the amount of data that will be used during eyeson calls, as well as to establish different modalities based on network performance,” explained Andreas Kröpfl, CEO of eyeson. “This low bandwidth mode also allows users to save data by consuming only 10-20 megabytes per hour, independent of the number of participants in a video meeting.”

If users have a slow or unreliable internet connection, video lags or the connection drops, they might want to participate in Audio-Only mode. Thus, it is possible to participate in a meeting, even though the internet connection does not satisfy the network environment needed.

Once Audio-Only Mode is turned on, clicking on ‘Join’ will give users direct access to the meeting where participants’ avatars are visible. The video participants can nonetheless view each other, while the audio participants’ names will be displayed while talking.
