What is a `zoom room`

  • Zoom Meetings & Chat facilitates enterprise video conferencing with real-time messaging and content sharing.
  • For performers interested in the nature and practice of free improvisation the `zoom` web application enables you to meet, in a video conference settings and dicsuss topics that are of interest, of interest to free improvisers.
  • To share and exchange points of view and personal testamonies.

Zoom.us Web application, the plus points:

  • Zoom web application web site - http://zoom.us/
  • You do not need to register an account, sign in, remember a password & log in
  • It is - compared to skype - user friendly, or the services are easier to use, for example to share screens, to record the meeting, to use chat boxes.
  • the `zoom.us` application is dedicated to supporting online meeting and webinars, and works to this end. Skype, an alternative, does not know what it is and though effective lacks `zoom.us` functionality that come with a focussed & dedicated approach.
  • Zoom is free, at low volume levels, at some point it requires funding
  • It may be less demanding on your computer or digital devices processor than skype
  • to be comtinued
