RADVISION® Ltd, a leading technology and end-to-end solution provider for unified visual communications including video network infrastructure, developer tools and high definition (HD) room, desktop and mobile video conferencing systems, today announced major advancements to its SCOPIA solution including extending video conferencing data collaboration to the Apple® iPad™, iPhone®, and iPod touch® providing interoperability with video conferencing systems for data. The new advanced data collaboration is also the first in the video conferencing industry to provide users with extended capabilities with H.239 interoperability.
“The H.239 standard is the general method used in video conferencing for data collaboration. H.239 is widely deployed amongst video conferencing vendors and provides the benefits of interoperability with different systems; however, H.239 by itself has limitations in its data collaboration features,” said Yair Wiener, CTO for RADVISION. “The new SCOPIA advanced data collaboration offers the best of both worlds. On the one hand, with H.239, SCOPIA provides interoperability with the majority of video conferencing systems in the market; and on the other, SCOPIA provides advanced data collaboration features and connectivity to devices that H.239 alone doesn’t offer.”
RADVISION’s new SCOPIA advanced data collaboration delivers interoperable H.239 based data collaboration with access from the Apple iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. With this capability, materials such as presentations, spreadsheets, documents and images shared in a video conference can be easily viewed on these highly popular Apple mobile devices. This advanced data collaboration will be available in RADVISION’s SCOPIA Mobile product offering, a free application extending the SCOPIA conferencing solution to the latest generation of mobile devices, and adds to SCOPIA Mobile’s conferencing control and management capabilities.
SCOPIA’s new advanced data collaboration also provides the ability to immediately review previously shared data. Conference participants can now review information and catch up if they arrived late to a meeting or want to spend additional time on critical points in material presented. Preview images of materials presented provide a quick way to jump back to sections of documents previously shared. For example, if a conference participant wanted to view an agenda slide in a presentation that was delivered when the meeting first started, they can easily navigate back to that particular slide, while the conference leader continues the presentation for the other participants.
RADVISION will be demonstrating SCOPIA’s advanced data collaboration with Apple iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch interoperability at the InfoComm 2010 Exposition in Las Vegas, June 9 - 11, booth N2231 in the Conferencing Pavilion.
