To take advantage of this new feature, TokBox users need only to drag and drop or copy a link to the YouTube video, SlideShare presentation or TokBox video mails into their TokBox video conference call. The videos and presentations will begin playing automatically, and can be controlled by any of the call participants.
“Adding in the ability to share videos and presentations with friends or co-workers brings us that much closer to replicating real world communications for our users.” said Nick Triantos, TokBox CEO.
“Watching SlideShare presentations on TokBox is a great way for our 9 million users to enjoy and collaborate on presentations with friends and co-workers,” said Rashmi Sinha, CEO of SlideShare.
In addition to talking with friends on TokBox, users can download the TokBox application or easily
add a video communication element to their blogs, social networks, as well as commerce and community sites.
Located in San Francisco, California, TokBox is privately held and backed (closes $4 million in a Series A venture funding) by Sequoia Capital and angel investors.
