Global Crossing, INTERVU In Conference Team

Global Crossing Conferencing, a subsidiary of the giant network, and INTERVU Inc. Wednesday teamed to deliver audio and video streaming services to Global Crossing's customers.

The first product from the new relationship will appear in the form of Global Crossing Conferencing's Webcast service. The service will combine INTERVU's streaming network with Global Crossing Conferencing's services, spanning reservations through billing.

This will allow conferencing users to increase the reach of their meetings through live and on-demand streaming of audio and video conferences. The service will be available to Global Crossing Conferencing's (GBLX) users in the second quarter of 2000.

"Our goal is to provide customers with seamless, powerful communication tools. Building our Webcast services on INTERVU's high performance network will allow us to provide reliable, high quality solutions to our customers," said Don Poulter, president of Global Crossing Conferencing."
