Company launches video and collaboration plugin for Skype
Santa Cruz Networks has launched vSkype Beta, the first in a series of plug-ins enabling IM users to engage in video, voice, and data sharing calls right from their IM client.

"Video is one of the most highly requested features," according to Skype. "It's a natural extension from where we're going," says Skype Chief Executive and co-founder Niklas Zennstrom.

vSkype Beta allows users to conduct video calls in groups from 2 to 200 and share applications, spreadsheets, presentations, or photos with others on a call.

In future releases users will be able to download and play Santa Cruz Network's camera games with other Skype users and
access a library of camera personalities, wallpaper, and drawing tools.

Professional users will be provided with various call controls, white boarding, meeting moderation, bandwidth control, and recording and archiving tools through our network of partners.

"We offer the Skype API to expand quality voice and messaging communications around the globe," said Zennstrom. "With this API, Skype is now an open platform and we are keen to watch the world's innovative developer community integrate the Skype application to extend the potential of global communications."

The production version of vSkype will include both P2P and server-based configurations, improved group audio, and tighter integration with the Skype IM. vSkype Beta works on any Windows 2000/XP PC with a 450 Mhz processor or greater running Skype

The company is also working with is working with other presence networks to add group visual communications to their platforms.
