Radvision Unveils Video Conferencing Solution
Radvision, an end-to-end solution provider for unified visual
communications including video network infrastructure, developer tools
and high-definition room, desktop and mobile video conferencing
systems, announced a video conferencing solution specifically tailored
for the communication requirements of small and medium-size businesses,
the Scopia XT1000 SMB solution, which provides a HD video conferencing
room system with integrated desktop conferencing and multiparty
multipoint control unit.
Built on the recently introduced Scopia XT1000 HD room system, the
company claimed the XT1000 SMB solution creates a new video
conferencing product class by combining HD room system capabilities,
embedded multiparty conferencing, desktop conferencing and firewall
traversal. With its integration with Scopia Desktop video conferencing
solution, it provides the ability to host a conference with full
multi-party HD video and data collaboration, including a combination of
room systems, Desktop software users both inside and outside an
organization and the company's VC240 desktop conferencing system users.
"Historically the SMB market has been underserved by the video
conferencing industry because of high priced and complex systems,
ultimately delaying the adoption of video conferencing by SMBs," said
Robert Romano, vice president of enterprise marketing for Radvision.
"This unique integration of the price/performance of the Scopia XT1000
and our market leading Scopia Desktop provides an affordable and
deployable solution ideally suited to the requirements of the SMB
Features include dual 1080p video, full band audio and high resolution data sharing, four or nine participant HD MCU with continuous presence, HD desktop conferencing and desktop client distribution and licensing, which enables desktop conferencing to be installed on an unlimited number of PCs and Macs, allowing desktop participation from virtually anywhere even for users outside the organization, such as with customers, suppliers and prospects.
"We believe the new Scopia SMB solution will be a great success for us," said Daniel Skitnevsky, COO of Seal Telecom, an audio and video conferencing distributors in Brazil. "Competitive solutions are considerably more expensive and much more complicated to install and manage. Being able to so easily deploy an entire video conferencing solution from the high definition room system to the desktop will be very popular with our customers."
Earlier this month, the company announced advancements to its video conferencing solution including extending video conferencing data collaboration to the Apple iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch, providing interoperability with video conferencing systems for data. The advanced data collaboration is also one of the first in the video conferencing industry to provide users with extended capabilities with H.239 interoperability.
