E-spex LLC, the creator of HVACTV.com which specializes in Web-based communications for the heating and air-conditioning industry, introduced perfectstream.tv. It is designed for companies that want to stream video for interactive training, meetings, product introductions and public relations over the Internet. Perfectstream.tv provides software that enables on-demand Webcasting, where the user has total control over what is Webcast, when and to whom.

All components, such as set-up, video, chat and archives, are configured to match the client's Web site. The client's site leads viewers through a log-in page to a video page, custom configured to the client's requirements.

E-spex charges a monthly fee for its software, support, archiving and bandwidth services.
