Jamvee is a web-based video-conferencing app capable of interconnecting terminals and telepresence systems from different vendors together with PC, Mac and smartphone-based devices (iOS available, Android coming soon).
"Jamvee supports a wide range of cross-vendor videoconferencing equipment, across multiple standards (e.g. SIP, H.323, and H.320). This includes telepresence systems from Cisco/Tandberg, Polycom, and Lifesize, single-screen equipment, personal video terminals, together with soft-clients running on PCs and mobile devices, and anyone using the free Jamvee application."

How does it work?
"Just like an audio conference you can access host and participant PINs on the jamvee portal, and send the participant PIN to people you want to meet with. Participants can then use any existing video system or Telepresence room that they have access to, or they simply download the free jamvee™ app from the Apple App Store or the jamvee™ portal.
Everyone taking part in the meeting just dials the same number (or in the case of the jamvee™ app, presses the ‘Join Conference’ button) and enters their PIN to join the meeting - ensuring secure and private meetings both
within your business and across multiple organisations / parties."
Jamvee can manage up to 12 simultaneous video feeds and up to 720p video resolution (more detail).
The pricing model adopted comprises a number of bundle minute packages as well as an unlimited-minute solution. With Jamvee, the host pays for all the participants to the meeting and needs to calculate ahead of time how many conferencing-minutes he and his participants will consume in total.
