It was me that made the original enquiry, and the lack of responses made it clear that there was not a great deal of knowledge or there regarding Agora - thanks for this follow-up report

Any chance on a deeper analysis of the product, similar to your VMSes reviews?

Doing a test of this would be low priority as similar type products or offerings typically generate low interest among members. The reason being (1) the technology being offered is not fundamentally novel and (2) the company does not get many requests.

We are doing more VMS reviews though, next up is Axxon, and we will see from there.
