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 that it is shipping a unique video conferencing solution especially suited to the communication requirements of small and medium businesses – the SCOPIA XT1000 SMB solution – providing an all inclusive HD video conferencing solution, that includes integrated multi-party and desktop video conferencing.
This solution combines the capabilities of the recently introduced SCOPIA XT1000 series HD video conferencing room systems with the award winning SCOPIA Desktop software to fully extend the SCOPIA XT1000 series room systems’ experience to users anywhere on their Macs or PCs. The system provides a very effective way for small and medium businesses to bring video communications beyond typical business boundaries to their workers at home and on the road, to partners and even to their customers.
The integrated desktop video conferencing software includes the latest advanced capabilities such as HD video, H.239 room system interoperable data collaboration, and firewall traversal. The video conferencing software employs a cost-effective deployment model as it can be installed on the desktop of every member of an organization including employees as well as external users such as business partners, suppliers, customers and prospects without additional costs. This model provides these users with easy access to business quality video conferencing capabilities extending the utility of the SCOPIA XT1000 series HD video conferencing room systems.
The SCOPIA XT1000 series room systems deliver the perfect blend of value and a high quality, high-end experience. The SCOPIA XT1000 product line supports two streams of HD video each at 1080p resolution and 30 frames per second (fps). The high-end camera offers 10x optical zoom for viewing details as well as wide angle capability for seeing an entire group. The system supports high resolution PC data sharing at 30fps so presentations and even video clips can be shared with zero perceived loss of quality. The embedded HD Multi-party Conferencing Unit (MCU) with support for continuous presence meetings with up to nine participants is the highest capacity embedded MCU in the industry today.
The fully integrated deployment model merging SCOPIA Desktop’s capabilities into the SCOPIA XT1000 series HD room systems does not require detailed technical skills to install or manage, making it ideal for those organizations with limited IT departments. The desktop conferencing capability can be easily added to existing SCOPIA XT1000 series systems starting at $3,000. Total solutions including the SCOPIA XT1000 HD room system, embedded MCU along with integrated SCOPIA Desktop HD video conferencing are available from $14,450.
