VoiceCom is a voice, video, text and file transfer communication application for PCs running Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8.
VoiceCom is designed for voice video and text communication between PC VoiceCom applications (terminals) over Internet or on local LAN.
VoiceCom behaves like a "push to talk" intercom. Once several (at least 2) VoiceCom applications sign in to server and become aware of each other, the user can push and hold a key or a button corresponding to the desired remote VoiceCom terminal and start talking.
While the "push to talk" button is pressed the speaker's video feed is also sent to the remote terminal (if the PC has a video camera)
The speech is reproduced on the addressed remote VoiceCom terminal. When finished talking the user releases the key or the button.
One of advantages of this PC intercom application that it allows peer to peer communications between endpoints on the Internet behind NAT devices and between terminals on the local LAN
VoiceCom peers can also send instant text messages and files to one another
Another nice feature is the user's static pictures assigned to each terminal. Once VoiceCom peers connect, they exchange their static pictures, so users can see who is online
VoiceCom supports communication with up to 40 terminals on the Internet or local LAN. Each VoiceCom terminal can talk to any of the other VoiceCom terminal.
VoiceCom terminals autodetect each others presence on the internet or local LAN and display the remote VoiceCom terminal's names and static pictures to the user for communication.
Example of VoiceCom use scenario is a software house intercom system between different rooms or areas of the house (Each VoiceCom terminal could be named by the user as for example: "Bedroom", "Kitchen", "Office", "Lounge", "Garage".
VoiceCom can be used to setup a software intercom system in a small / medium business connecting up to 40 PCs either connected remotely over Internet or on local LAN
