The promise from Avaya includes high quality video to more employees and more devices in nearly any location.
The company said enhancements to the Scopia videoconferencing platform and the launch of the new H175 Video Collaboration Station and E159/E169 Media Stations allow transitions from BYOD and mobile working to personal desktop to full room conferencing.
Three primary factors are driving growth in video conferencing deployments across desktop, room, and mobile endpoints: Increasing user demand, improved ease of use, and broader access to video conferencing capabilities from any device, according to the Nemertes Research 2014-15 Enterprise Technology Benchmark.
Avaya Scopia XT7100 room video conferencing system now supports H.265 video coding that supports video quality up to 1080P at 60fps with up to 50 percent less bandwidth over H.264 High Profile systems.
Scopia XT4300, a second new room system, provides high-definition videoconferencing for small to midsized conference rooms — at an affordable price.
Avaya said Scopia video conferencing systems now allow users to directly share content wirelessly from their laptops. Mobile users can now experience a seamless handoff between their Scopia soft client on their mobile device and a room system. Mobile users on their laptops, tablets, PCs and desktops can participate with the full 1080p video quality previously available only on room systems.
The Scopia platform enables users to broadcast video meetings to large audiences — up to 100,000 viewers — and record in full HD. Users can access recorded content through a scalable YouTube like portal.
The Avaya H175 Video Collaboration Station features a high definition video camera and seven inch HD touchscreen display, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, access to Outlook calendar, contacts, and presence status of colleagues, cordless handset and speakerphone with HD voice.
“Providing all team members — including BYOD and mobile workers — with voice, video and sharing capabilities in whatever format they need facilitates the productivity and deeper engagement that can lead to higher profitability,” said Gary E Barnett, SVP and GM, Avaya Engagement Solutions.
