Today there’s a great bit of buzz flowing through the VideoCentric office.
Yes, we’ve always been pretty chuffed with our set up at our HQ – with every video enabled gadget & system under the sun to play with (and demonstrate), and with the likes of the full Polycom, Lifesize, Cisco and Microsoft Lync infrastructure sitting in place ready for experimentation, we actually like to think that you can throw us in the video interoperability deep end (and it’s right where our team really loves to swim).
But the excitement today is more than “just a bit of interoperability”. It’s all about Microsoft Lync. And we’re pleased to announce that what we’ve come up with is leaps and bounds forward in the world of Microsoft Lync to Video Conferencing endpoint communication.
As of today, anyone can simply call our Lync desktop clients from any professional Video Conferencing endpoint, anywhere in the world.
Or call our Lync desktop clients from any PC or Mac, tablet or smartphone running a professional video client. Or even call our Lync client from a SMARTBoard. Or anything running Google Chrome.
And it can be done easily & immediately.
And even more, it connects with HD Video and with 2-way data sharing.
We know, we know. We’ve got your attention now.
Most of you will likely have Microsoft Lync, or perhaps be working on a Lync strategy. You at least know that Lync is something that is coming and you’ll probably be looking at it for every desktop in your organisation. And many of you may have a video conferencing estate, or teams, clients, colleagues & supply chains with video conferencing solutions in place. And if you’re still with us, you’re probably rather interested in joining the two together.
So Whats the Solution?
Of course, I’m not going to give it away (cue chorus of sigh’s from the ogling competitors). Every team in VideoCentric is managed by a video conferencing expert with over 30 years experience in video integration & network design, and that expert knowledge & ability can’t be done justice within a blog. But i’m sure I can share the icing on this really yummy cake. You’ll just need to have a chat with us to bite into the tasty sponge. Here’s just 5 things for you to know:
This ground-breaking solution is based upon the industry’s most resilient, secure & interoperable equipment
The platform can be virtual, can be deployed on premise or can form part of a private managed cloud
We’ve experts on hand for video network consultancy and, if required, even a full implementation of Lync
The solution is future proofed and ready for new protocols, new developments in technology & new video standards
We can demonstrate this instantly from any video conferencing system, video enabled PC, Mac, tablet or Smartphone
Of course, we’d love to have a chat with you about bringing your teams together – whether you are just starting on your Lync journey, have a major video conferencing environment, have customers you’d like to speak with from their home PC straight to your desktop, or have video islands with the central glue just missing from the middle.
Do you have any of the above scenarios? Are you looking to expand your Lync deployment with HD video? Or do you think that you will likely keep your islands seperate?! Discuss with us below, we’d love to hear your thoughts. Oh, and do give us a call to talk this through. We’re a friendly bunch, don’t worry!
The newly launched Lifesize Cloud is racing ahead in the Cloud Video Conferencing department. With a huge number of trials kicking off within weeks and some big names already on the books, Lifesize’s cloud solution provides some of the most desirable features for video conferencing users, whilst keeping costs low, usage easy and connectivity simple. In case you’ve had your head in the clouds and missed out on one of the biggest announcements in Video Conferencing for 2014, you can find out more about the Lifesize Cloud here.
Since the launch in May, a number of great enhancements have been announced by our friends at Lifesize including improved quality, simplified management and more compatibility with platforms including for Macs and Windows. So what features have been announced?
The most recent announcement has been eagerly awaited by our Lifesize Icon users who can now experience greatly improved video quality of up to 720p60 (the highest temporal resoution possible under the ATSC & DVB standards). Excited? You should be. This means users can now experience the most vivid, realistic video quality available on the market today.
The status of the Lifesize Cloud service can now be viewed by everyone so any changes in status, downtime or node issues can be seen immediately. Hopefully not something that needs to be used too often, but great for piece of mind! Plus, you can also subscribe to auto-updates so any changes in status, you’ll know about it immediately. Handy hey?
Account managers at the ready! You can now centrally manage all your registered video systems via the central web console!
Plus, no longer the need to worry about difficulties in changes to account managers, or email addresses & contact details change – these can all now easily be changed from the central web control, and allows companies to easily, quickly and effectively change Account Managers in an instant.
Are you a Windows user? Great news, no more missing features from your Mac counterparts! You can now invite guests, join meetings as guests and add, edit and delete meetings, as well as see the number of participants in your call.
And Mac users, a new update for you too! You can now add, edit & delete your personal contacts easily and quickly from your own personal Cloud directory.
Last but not least (and probably the least exciting… for some anyway) Lifesize announce that they also now make sure that .NET v4.5.1 is installed before the Lifesize Cloud app on Windows laptops to greatly improve the experience when installing the Lifesize Cloud software.
Yet these are just a handful of the important updates and feature announcements that have been made in just 2 months and Lifesize is avidly working to ensure the Cloud provides everything it needs to and more – whether a Mac or Windows user, an iOS or Android tablet obsessive, a SMB business of just 1-10 users or even a multinational corporation spanning the globe.
