ahoo! Jumps Into Videoconference

 By Keith Regan,

 In a move apparently timed to capitalize on a slowdown in business
 travel, Yahoo! (Nasdaq: YHOO - news) unveiled a service Thursday
 that will provide corporations with Internet broadcasting capabilities.

                     Yahoo! Broadcast Services are designed to
                     replace face-to-face meetings for business
                     conferences, sales meetings and trade shows.

                     The conference services will allow "companies to continue vital
                     communications that were centered around large scale meetings, and
                     maintain critical and focused outreach to customers, sales forces and
                     business partners," said Yahoo! senior vice president James Fanella.

                     Fanella noted that business travel has been severely curtailed in the wake of
                     the September 11th terrorist attacks on the U.S., in which four hijacked
                     planes were crashed in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania.

 Many apparently expect the travel woes to continue, as stocks in the videoconferencing industry were
 among those to see gains when the stock markets re-opened following the attacks.

 Rapid Deployment

 Sunnyvale, California-based Yahoo! said its services can be deployed rapidly and offer a low-cost
 alternative to travel and meeting planning.

 The offerings will initially include the "virtual conference," which offers the ability to make presentations
 and interact with distant audiences. For example, audiences will be able to submit questions and
 respond to polls during the meetings.

 The second service, the "executive communication center," is being promoted as a way to quickly
 communicate with far-flung audiences, such as employees or shareholders.

 Yahoo! said it will have employees on call 24 hours a day, enabling them to receive and prepare video
 transmissions for re-broadcast within four hours.

 Adjusting Focus

 Yahoo!, which slipped from profitability to fiscal losses as the market for online advertising slumped,
 has been relentlessly expanding its reach in an effort to decrease its dependence on advertising.

 This month, the portal unveiled an e-book sales site that will be run in conjunction with several leading
 publishing houses.

 Yahoo! has also announced it will host the Web site of soccer's World Cup, and that it is also going to
 create and host a Web site for Sony (NYSE: SNE - news) under a sweeping deal with the
 entertainment and electronics company.

 Many of Yahoo's efforts have been aimed at the corporate market and seek to leverage the Internet
 media company's expertise in Web hosting, design and technical issues.
