Tandberg has announced a new software release for its Multipoint Control Units (MCUs), delivering scale and enhanced desktop video conferencing capabilities. This release makes it even easier for organizations to visually connect employees, customers, and suppliers through video conferencing solutions.
“The current demand for video must also be met with high-quality, scalable, and easily managed infrastructure to ensure that organizations can experience all of the advantages of enterprise wide video deployment,” said David Holloway, Senior Vice President of Network Products Group, Tandberg. “We’ve addressed this need with Tandberg MCUs by continuing to develop innovative ways to deliver industry-leading infrastructure support and strengthen the Tandberg Total Solution. Through this technology we are providing a superior video experience for end users and IT professionals alike.
MaxSDTM, newly developed for the Tandberg MSE 8000 series, brings unprecedented capacity and flexibility to an organization’s video conferencing capabilities by increasing the capacity of a single MSE 8000 chassis from 360 to 720 concurrent SD (standard definition 448p) video calls. This enhancement enables very large video conferences, with capacity for up to 80 SD or 20 HD (720p) fully transcoded, continuous presence (CP) connections per blade.
Moreover, the new MCU ConferenceMeTM feature extends multipoint video conferencing to the desktop by enabling up to 12 simultaneous users to easily join any conference and collaborate face-to-face from their PC via an email invitation with a URL link. Users simply click the link and join a video conference no matter where they are located, with features such as multiple layouts, continuous presence and content sharing functionality, all without compromising on video quality.
