Macromedia Breeze Live now available

Online, real-time meetings available as both hosted and standalone solutions

AUCKLAND New Zealand - 1 December 2003 - Macromedia (Nasdaq: MACR) announced the immediate availability of Macromedia Breeze Live, which reinvents the user experience of online meetings and takes the pain out of planning and running those meetings. Breeze Live is available as a standalone product or as an add-on module for the Macromedia Breeze platform. For more information, visit http://www.macromedia.com/go/breezelive/.

"Macromedia Breeze Live breaks down the barriers of delivering effective online meetings by offering a simpler and better user experience before, during and after the live session," said Keith Kitani, vice president of product management, Macromedia. "Online meetings have become a popular way for organisations to reduce the expense of meetings while retaining the interactivity and productivity. Breeze Live eliminates both the technical barriers and learning curve that have previously limited widespread adoption."

Breeze Live offers unique features not available in other online meeting solutions. Users can join a meeting by simply clicking a web link, without any complicated downloads or setup. The solution builds on the power and broad reach of Macromedia Flash Player, which is already installed on more than 98 percent of online desktops, ensuring that most meeting participants won't have to download any software to participate. The application can also be customised to suit individual presentation styles, content, or the audience by having multiple customisable layouts within the meeting room.

For users hosting the meeting, Breeze Live enables content such as PowerPoint presentations to be set-up in advance, preloading both content and the presentation layout. Meeting content, such as sharing spreadsheets or giving product demonstrations, can also be delivered live and changed in real-time during a meeting without having to interrupt the flow of the presentations. The ability to deliver recorded presentations and use persistent meeting rooms that retain the state in which they were left make Breeze Live suitable for recurring meetings or presenting the same content to multiple groups.

"At webqem we have clients all around the globe. Macromedia Breeze allows us to instantly arrange meetings online regardless of whether people are in the next room, interstate or overseas," said Larry Adler, Operations Director, webqem Pty Ltd.

"Breeze is quick and easy to setup and easy for our clients to join in on meetings. Breeze allows us to record the meeting including video, audio and text, enhancing our service offering and provides webqem with a professional, low cost and effective communication strategy," said Adler.

Macromedia Breeze enables companies to quickly and efficiently transfer knowledge, improve revenue generation, leverage their existing knowledge base, and reduce costs across the enterprise. The Macromedia Breeze platform enables businesses to quickly create and deliver on-demand learning and professional development courses, product introductions and presentations, sales force training, customer interactions, web seminars and online meetings.

Macromedia Breeze Live is available as either a hosted ASP or enterprise licensed solution. ASP annual packages start at NZ$133 /month per user for a complete web conferencing solution, including video and archiving. For more information, visit http://www.macromedia.com/go/breezelive/
