Key among its features is its ease of deployment. Galene doesn't require complicated configurations or high-end hardware. A standard server setup is sufficient to run it smoothly, making it a cost-effective solution for small to medium businesses. The software also provides efficient stream management, forwarding streams from one participant to another instead of mixing them at the server level.

In addition to its streamlined operation, Galene stands out for its user-friendly interface. It's designed with the user in mind, ensuring ease of use even for those not technically inclined. This means that users can focus more on their meetings and less on troubleshooting technical problems. Emphasizing simplicity and efficiency, Galene provides an excellent solution for conducting smooth and successful video conferences.
