FoxDen tended to work slightly better for very small video conferences. The audio was typically reliable, so it would be ok to use for audio conferencing. It is definitely not ready for prime time: it cannot handle very large conferences. It didn't seem ready to be used on mobile either. I also think it's better suited for a smaller company.

MediaPlatform is not a tool to be used as a one-to-one client tool. Its best suited for corporate events or large events such as webinars, conventions, trade shows, or similar events. They have different products which are suited to the client's need and type of event. Based on your needs and their analysis they will advise you to choose the best solution offered by them

Cons
PGi (Premiere Global Services, Inc.)
  • Horrible video quality. It basically never worked, and we stopped using the video feature.
  • Buggy behavior all the time. Dropped calls, loss of screen sharing, rendered unusable most of the time.
  • Poor response by the vendor to issues. The answer was basically "we know it's unusable, and we're trying to figure that out. There's nothing we can do right now."

Alternatives Considered
PGi (Premiere Global Services, Inc.)
I believe they selected FoxDen because we use ReadyTalk for voice conferencing and FoxDen represented a cost savings compared to our previous Skype for Business investment. However, in the end, most of our company has abandoned ever using FoxDen and, instead, still uses all of the products listed above (Skype for Business, Google Hangouts, Slack) or just plain ReadyTalk voice conferencing.

MediaPlatform is in a league by itself and is in no way comparable with any of the current media collaboration or presentation platforms with the product they offer and their quality of service. i would say they are far above the rest

Return on Investment
PGi (Premiere Global Services, Inc.)
  • Increased the length of our meetings due to copious amounts of time spent trying to fix the video and screen sharing.
  • Added frustration for everyone who attempted to use it.
  • Ultimately resulted in a lot of money lost on video equipment that everyone stopped using in favor of voice-only conferencing due to the faulty video.
