Dimdim is a software company that provides a web-based platform for real-time, rich-media collaboration and meetings. Dimdim provides free web conferencing service where users can share desktops, show slides, collaborate, chat, talk and broadcast via webcam.[2] It has been compared to the WebEx 2.0 web conferencing solution.[3]



Dimdim is financially backed by Index Ventures, Nexus India Capital and Draper Richards.[4]

Open source

Dimdim is made available primarily as an enterprise edition and as a Virtual Machine appliance, but an open source community edition has also been made available to developers under the GNU General Public License (GPL), giving them the option to install and host Dimdim in their own networks. The most recent open source version, released in December 2008 and hosted at sourceforge.net, is V4.5 "Liberty". Distributives of the system for the installation to several OSes, Virtual Machines and the corresponding documentation are available in several archives on the SourceForge.net Dimdim site[5]. Dimdim can be integrated with the e-learning platforms Moodle, Claroline and Docebo, the collaborative suite Zimbra and the CRM software SugarCRM. Unlike Dimdim's web-hosted services, the Dimdim open source server does not restrict the number of attendees or simultaneous meetings allowed.[6]



An alpha version of Dimdim was released in fall 2006, followed by a private beta launch in fall 2007.[7] The company's first public beta was in April 2008. Version 4.0 beta was released in July 2008. Dimdim formally exited beta in December 2008 with the launch of version 4.5.[8]

Revenue streams

Dimdim provides hosted meetings, similar to GoToMeeting. Free meetings are available for up to 20 users. Pro meetings with collaboration tools for up to 50 users are available for $19/mo, and Webinar hosting for up to 100 users or 1000 event attendees are available for $75/mo.
