Deliver Your News to the World Web & Video Conferencing Responds to Needs of Nebraska Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church


LOS ANGELES, CA, October 17, 2006 – By implementing’s browser based web and video conferencing services, the Nebraska Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church (UMCNEB) has greatly reduced their necessity for travel, which has also resulted in a tremendous cost savings as well. Charles Spence, a pastor with UMCNEB, stated that, “We have conducted committee meetings with members from all over Nebraska. We use MegaMeeting to brief people who are going to attend major decision-making conferences.” Spence continued by saying, “Data updating was done to insure retirement benefits and supervision work is done for folks going through an evaluation process.”

UMCNEB currently uses MegaMeeting in its Marketing and Training departments, as well as with their Administration, Executives and Board of Directors. UMCNEB uses MegaMeeting to conduct seminars, company meetings and to train their employees. Prior to implementing the MegaMeeting system, UMCNEB’s staff had to endure extensive travel to participate in two hour meetings, or were limited to voice only conference calls via the telephone. They have also found that they have eliminated much of their written correspondence due to using video and web conferencing as a means of communication.

The specific features of MegaMeeting that UMCNEB implements most often are the video conferencing capabilities that allow meeting attendees to see each other, the ability to share a PowerPoint presentation via the Internet, the built in audio (VoIP), collaboration, as well as screen sharing capabilities. In response to how UMCNEB will utilize MegaMeeting in the future, Spence stated, “I hope to start monthly training and information sharing seminars for local Chambers to do their work better using denominational resources.”

One of the main reasons UMCNEB chose MegaMeeting over other web and video conferencing systems was due to the affordable price and the quick response they received from MegaMeeting representatives when questions were raised. When UMCNEB informed their representative that they wanted to conduct a high quality video presentation, they were told that they needed a digital minicam with firewire support. Their MegaMeeting representative helped them configure the camera and soon thereafter UMCNEB was conducting their presentations via video/web conferencing.
