New service turns conference calls into podcasts for free

TORRANCE, Calif., Aug. 21, 2006 -- LiveOffice Corp. (, the leading provider of on-demand conferencing, collaboration and compliance solutions, today became one of the first free teleconferencing providers to offer podcast recording services at no charge. LiveOffice Free Conferencing's new Record & Playback service gives any individual or business a simple way to leverage podcasting as a mainstream marketing, training and relationship management tool.

This newest feature is as easy to use as dialing the phone. By visiting and registering for an account, users can instantly conduct and record conference calls. The recorded calls can then be downloaded to a digital music player as a podcast or posted to website pages as streaming audio. The unique web-based service does not require the purchase of special podcasting hardware or software and enables absolutely anyone to listen to the recorded call at any time.

How it Works

Once a call starts, the host enables call recording from the telephone keypad. At its conclusion, the recording is saved in MP3 format to ensure superior audio quality and flexible playback options. LiveOffice Free Conferencing automatically makes the recorded session available as a download within 60 minutes after the conclusion of the conference call on the host's Recording Administration Page (RAP). The host then provides potential listeners with a bridge and PIN number so they can access the recording online at any time in their preferred format.

"Podcasting is quickly becoming a must-have communication tool for many internet users. However until now, there have been few simple and cost effective podcast recording options," said Ted Heieck, product manager for LiveOffice Corp. "LiveOffice Free Conferencing's recording technology removes these barriers and puts this effective communication channel at everyone's fingertips."

It is estimated that many small businesses are spending thousands of dollars on professionally-produced podcasts, but LiveOffice Free Conferencing's Record & Playback features mean that businesses can now create high quality, downloadable recordings at absolutely no cost. These recorded sessions are perfect for conducting group training sessions with clients or resellers or as a marketing tool that promotes new products and services to clients -- and they mean that everyone can listen to them on their own schedule. In addition, since the service is offered at no charge, business owners no longer have to find advertisers to sponsor sessions or charge attendees to download recordings, because they do not incur any additional cost during the quick and easy recording and downloading process.

Pricing & Availability

The services mentioned above are available now at LiveOffice Free Conferencing offers both toll and toll-free conference calling for groups of all sizes. The service's Record & Playback features are offered at no charge to all service subscribers.
