TeamSpeak Systems GmbH - (Free)
Communication in a gaming network team is important and for that many softwares were developed but TeamSpeak is a must since it is very flexible offering may configuration options.
TeamSpeak is a program that allows communication between multiple users connected to the same server. The application is designed to run in the background and is particularly useful in network games. The quality of the transmission and bandwidth can be configured according to the available connection.
The program is optimized for conversations in large numbers ( up to 16 by default). To prevent the arrival of unwanted pranksters, user will be able to protect his "channel" with a password. If user has permission, he can also "kick" troublemakers.
A minimum latency is received in the transmission of voice but there are codecs used to reduce the latency for communication and improve the voice quality. It is perfect for online players to send instructions or information to others.
3D effects are integrated to enhance or change the sound of the voice. The sound may be moved in a three dimensional space. For an online conference, this option helps to further establish the position of all players on a virtual table.
