It seems that Openmeetings has actually been proposed as sister project, 
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/OpenMeetings.org

But I do not see any progress on this subject.

I personnaly don't know OpenMeetings.

Cheers

 Is that possible you might mix-up with https://openmeetings.apache.org/ ?

I have evaluated OpenMeetings before we discussed further steps on
implementing BBB.
It is very similar to BBB, has mostly the same features and also under
the most components are the same (J2EE, Red5...).
BBB seems to have a much nicer user interface, though.

I'd didn't know about the sister project proposal. It looks a bit odd to
me, doesn't really fit in the strategy of Wikimedia. I see video
conferences as a tool, not a project itself. We have a similar component
in the WikiTV project I am leading on german Wikipedia but the results
are the discussions we want to document, not the video platform we use.

I also think that OpenMeetings would be great, being a big fan of open
source and free software, but the main issue here is one of speed, and
volunteer availability.

The way I see it, and Manuel can correct me if I am wrong, is that we have
someone who is familiar with BBB and setting up such a system for wikimedia
will not require a lot of extra learning for him. BBB will take time to set
up, of course, but not all that extra time needed to learn the details of
an Open software solution and to iron out the bugs.

I would say that we go ahead with the proposed BBB solution, and in a few
years we can always switch programs.

Hello Charles,

we have in TAO also good experience with big blue button!
But today I see, that OpenMeetings.org is being proposed as a Wikimedia 
Foundation Sister Project. Do you know OpenMeetings?

Dear member of the Wikimedia Movement,

During our last Wikimedia CH board meeting, we resolved to set up a web
conferencing solution.

After reviewing our needs, we decided that the most effective solution
would be that of setting up a dedicated server for that purpose.

 From a chapter level point of view, it could appear like an expensive
investment, but put in the context of the Wikimedia movement, this
investment (not such a large one, in fact) could be made profitable
quite easily.

We plan to give access to these tools at first to all the chapters and
affiliated group, as then as well for thematic groups.

Deployment is planned for the next Wikimedia Conference in Milan.

In the meantime, people interested in getting access to the tools can
contact us by email at supp...@wikimedia.ch
mailto:supp...@wikimedia.ch, with a simple description of the project,
an estimation of the number of people interested and the frequency of usage.

For further information on the chosen solution, you can check the Big
Blue Button website. http://www.bigbluebutton.org/

For the Wikimedia CH board

Charles
