Vyew can be customized in a variety of ways:
- Custom Room URL – This changes the URL of your Vyew Room, such as “www.vyew.com/acmeAnvils”
- Custom Color Theme – Change the user interface colors to the exact colors you prefer
- Custom Banner Ad – Replace the advertising banner with your own logo
We also have other options such as co-branding and white-label version of Vyew for resellers and channel partners. Please contact us for this information and ask for the Business Development department.
The maximum possible number of concurrent users (a.k.a “real-time participants”) allowed in a room depends on your subscription level. The latest info on subscription pricing is here.
- Free accounts = 10 users
- Plus accounts = 10 users (can be upgraded to 80)
- Pro accounts = 15 users (can be upgraded to 80)
The maximum number of concurrent users is actually per account, with the number of concurrent users split up among all your rooms, as better explained here.
Of course, there is no limit to the number of times someone can access your rooms, since they are “always on,” as long it’s within the concurrency limits.
What if I want more than 80 users in a room?
80 is the max. Occasionally, we can allow more on an trial account-by-account basis. Contact us for more details.
There is no trial – its free
Some services have “free trials” which expire. Vyew is always free and has all the functionality of the paid accounts. The downside is the free version has embedded advertising in the interface and a limits the number of concurrent users in a meeting (only 10 at a time). Getting rid of the advertising starts as low as $9.95/mo.
There is no contract
