PlaceWare

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

PlaceWare was a provider of web conferencing software founded in 1996 by Xerox engineers Pavel Curtis, Mike Dixon, and David Nichols as a spin-off from Xerox PARC.[1] Its first product, PlaceWare Auditorium, was rolled out in March 1997, and used by such companies as Hewlett-Packard, Intel, Sun Microsystems, and PBS.[2]

Placeware was acquired by Microsoft in 2003,[3] and its core product renamed Microsoft Office Live Meeting.
