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 the availability of SCOPIA V7.5 delivering extensive enhancements to RADVISION’s video conferencing solutions including its SCOPIA Elite MCU, SCOPIA Desktop and iVIEW SCOPIA Management Suite. Major enhancements of SCOPIA V7.5 are noted below.
Breakthrough Technology for Telepresence Interoperability – With the new Telepresence Interoperability feature of SCOPIA V7.5, RADVISION’s SCOPIA Elite MCU provides connectivity to users with telepresence systems from Cisco, Logitech/LifeSize, Polycom and Tandberg allowing them to view all meeting participants in a multi-party call, including those on traditional video conferencing systems and telepresence systems from other vendors. Users participating with traditional video conferencing systems will see telepresence participants in a special video layout where multiple video streams are combined into a single panoramic image. Telepresence users no longer have to be stranded in their closed solutions with SCOPIA Elite’s new breakthrough telepresence interoperability technology.
Revolutionary Advanced Data Collaboration – SCOPIA V7.5 delivers the first H.239 room system interoperable data collaboration that includes extended capabilities. SCOPIA Desktop’s H.239 advanced data collaboration provides the ability to 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 already presented. For example, if a conference participant wants 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 without interruption.
Enhanced Unified Communications Capabilities – With SCOPIA V7.5, RADVISION continues to expand its comprehensive support for unified communications with full integration for IBM Lotus Sametime. Sametime users will be able to enjoy the high definition multi-party conferencing and connectivity capabilities of the SCOPIA solution with the native Sametime client with no additional installation required. Connectivity to telepresence, video conferencing room and desktop systems, along with mobile and standard phones is now available directly through Sametime.
Unified Video Conferencing Address Book – Many video conferencing deployments have a variety of endpoints from different vendors. This presents a significant challenge to administrators in managing their address books and updating them. With iVIEW SCOPIA Management Suite, administrators can update the address books for all their video conferencing systems with a single entry from either Microsoft Active Directory or IBM Lotus Domino. This capability is supported for the most popular endpoints available from RADVISION, Logitech/LifeSize, Polycom, Sony and Tandberg.
Enhanced Network Error Handling – Along with RADVISION’s current implementation of H.264 SVC, which provides a dramatically high degree of error resiliency, SCOPIA V7.5 has added additional capabilities to further improve performance over Internet connections. NetSense adapts the bandwidth used to a lower rate before packet loss actually affects call quality through a sophisticated prediction technique. In the event that errors do occur, potentially affecting call quality, SCOPIA V7.5 implements superior error handling through sophisticated Reed-Solomon error correction. When network conditions improve, NetSense restores the call to the original bandwidth utilized. The sum of these capabilities is engineered to provide the best quality experience possible.
“SCOPIA V7.5 reflects RADVISION’s ongoing drive to deliver the easiest to use solutions, providing the highest quality experience at the most affordable prices in the market,” said Roberto Giamagli, General Manager, Video Business Unit for RADVISION. “For those customers seeking to enhance their productivity and competitive edge, the end-to-end solutions offered by SCOPIA V7.5 along with the recently introduced SCOPIA XT1000 HD room and SCOPIA VC240 desktop systems are the right solutions at the right time.”
RADVISION will be demonstrating the new SCOPIA V7.5 solution at IP Convergence 2010 in Paris, October 19 – 21, Porte de Versailles, hall 4, booth F32.
