DimDim - Cheaper alternative to WebEx

If you are looking for a free (or cheap) alternative to WebEx, you may want to look at DimDim.

Dimdim is an easy and affordable open source web meeting product with features like Application, Desktop and Presentation sharing with audio/visual streaming and chat, with absolutely no download required to host or attend meetings.

DimDim company has just released the latest and the better version 4.5 to the general public with some cool features like SynchroLive Co-Browsing, Recording and playback of meetings, Share Mac & PC Desktops etc

DimDim comes with three flavors,
  • DimDim Free (up to 20 attendees)
  • DimDim Pro (up to 100 attendees)
  • DimDim Enterprise (up to 1000 attendees)
Key features of DimDim:
  • It’s Easy, Open & Affordable
  • No Install to Host/Join meetings
  • Easy Share Screens & Webpages
  • Audio & Video Conferencing
  • Present PowerPoint and PDFs
  • Private & Public Chat
  • Whiteboard & Annotations
  • Record and Playback Meetings
  • Open Source and open APIs
I have presonally used DimDim Free to provide technology presentations to a small group of people scattered across the globe and the performance was really good. I have also used WebEx extensively in the past and felt that DimDim was more intuitive and easy.

DimDim is highly recommended to have an easy, effortless web meetings at a cost less than a third what you would pay for WebEx or similar conferencing product.

DimDim is getting a lot of attention due to its good performance and now it has even made it to the Top 100 Products of 2008 by ReadWriteWeb.

DimDim is an open source web conferencing service, but unfortunately it’s closed now. WebEx is a quality web conferencing product; however, it is slightly expensive as compared to others. If you want something cheap, the try using GoMeetNow, which costs only $12.95 / month, next to free.
