Sydney, Australia, 2006/05/12 - Today, as a part of "Predators Released" initiative, BoonEx Group has launched new product - Ray audio/video instant messenger, chat and web server based on flash technology. This is the first audio/video application that offers complete control.
Today, as a part of "Predators Released" initiative, BoonEx Group has launched new product - Ray audio/video instant messenger, chat and web server based on flash technology. Currently Ray web multimedia software comes with two applications - Ray Chat and Ray Messenger. Ray Chat offers the best web chat capabilities supporting several simultaneous audio/video windows, web video conference for 4 users. Large and resizable windows allow users modifying chat as they wish. Users can change text, style and color, add fancy smiles to live text, see user's details in the same window without reloading the page. Ray users can easily pick the room to join, see how many people are inside, who's broadcasting their video. Finally, users can also create their own rooms.
Ray IM offers private one-on-one conversations for site members. Ray IM includes all features of Ray chat and can be easily called for from general chat rooms. When integrated separately calling of Ray IM requires one single click to start tête-à-tête conversation with any online member. Receiver gets a window asking to accept IM conversation or decline. This allows site members to have personal conversations only with members they want.
BoonEx Group plans to release Ray Recorder soon as well. This will offer ability to record audio and video messages for site members. Profile owners can record up to three messages and post them for their friends, other members and visitors to listen and watch. A/V message authors can name each file with unique name. This differs much from UP webrecorder that offers only one file to record and file name is given by script only.
Ray is based on Ray Multimedia Server, alternative of Flash Media Server, which was developed specifically for Ray and handles server part much better than Flash Media Server. This empowers Ray Web Multimedia Software to offer billing plans with much less expenses for end users. Premium plan now makes you pay nothing for connections or load-dependent access. You pay only for Ray license (198USD flat fee), which comes with unlimited simultaneous connections. Each license is offered per one domain/database or per network for intranet applications of Ray Multimedia Software.
"Now, one does not have to pay 5000USD for Flash server or for monthly connections fees, you have your own server and application, both for 198USD one time flat fee", says BoonEx Group general director, Andrey Sivtsov.
In addition, BoonEx Group offers basic plan. This plan includes free version of Ray for unlimited simultaneous connections, similar to Userplane Webchat offer with Userplane hosted ad-space, yet ads free and audio/video services turned off.
Focus of BoonEx Group on open source principles made it possible for Ray to offer customized templates of both chat, IM and recorder unlike one standard template used by all Userplane clients. In addition, this defined main clients of Ray as willing to integrate their dating websites, forum communities and weblogs with Ray application and not willing to pay that much to Userplane. Ray is already integrated with such popular online scripts as aeDating, SkyDatePro, Dolphin and Shark. Such communities as 4ppl.com, 0dating.com were enjoying this product even before it was released for wider public. Ray adds life and online experience to a website. Now site owners can provide their members with Userplane alternative chat, IM and audio/video profile features.
Ray web multimedia software comes with new approach to support - BoonEx Club. This is not simply a place where support is offered. BoonEx Club is a community of professionals that include both supporters from BoonEx Team and experts in various online business fields such as website promotion, programming, web design and others. Community creates collaborative technical documentation, participates in discussion boards with tips and hints, develops additional Ray modules, language files, plugins and design templates. All these services make BoonEx Club membership a must have for serious users of Ray Web Multimedia Software.
