Get the Picture

Secure Meeting supports desktop and application sharing, text chatting, and presentation annotation, all of which worked as advertised. I found the annotation features especially useful, as I could point to a topic on the screen during a presentation and embellish it by adding text and drawing circles and squiggly lines. But for voice integration or real-time video, or a package that integrates real-time and asynchronous collaboration, you'll need to look elsewhere--these features aren't available in Secure Meeting.
