On the heel of Radvision’s (News - Alert) recent introduction of SCOPIA XT5000 HD video conferencing room system, the company has announced the launch of another video conferencing system called SCOPIA XT4200 HD. In addition, the company has also introduced the SCOPIA XT Meeting Center, an all-in-one room system with integrated 55" displays.

The newly launched products significantly enhances Radvision’s SCOPIA video conferencing room system portfolio. The XT4200 introduces a highly affordable HD system that incorporates the latest video technologies. The all-in-one XT Meeting Center is ideal for the businesses requiring an integrated and flexible visual communications solution. Both the products incorporate latest video communications technology, Radvision said in a press release.

Radvision provides video conferencing and telepresence technologies over IP and wireless networks. Through a well developed network of channel and service provider partners, Radvision offers end-to-end visual communications that help businesses collaborate more efficiently. In its website, Radvision said that the company is committed to take the unified communications evolution forward with unique technologies that harness the power of video, voice, and data over any network.

In the release, Radvision clarified that its SCOPIA XT4200 has been specially designed with the needs of smaller and mid-sized conference rooms in mind. The solution is ideal for those who do not require all the high-end features offered in the SCOPIA XT5000. The XT4200 is nonetheless packed with powerful features. The solution offers such features as dual 720p/60fps live video and content, HD audio, H.264 High Profile and Scalable Video Coding (SVC), dual display support and a wide angle PTZ camera, all at a highly affordable price.

The quick and simple set-up and mobility are two valuable advantages with SCOPIA XT Meeting Center, which has been specifically designed for education and enterprise environments. This premium HD room system integrates single or dual 55" 1080p displays in a specially designed cart. SCOPIA XT Meeting Center can be used as a shared resource. The XT Meeting Center is powered by RADVISION's flagship SCOPIA XT5000 - the only system available in the market that includes dual 1080p/60fps live video and content.

“Radvision is delivering the industry's most advanced video room systems that are cost-effective, and without compromising on features or quality. Now, we are expanding our room system portfolio to meet the needs of both smaller-sized businesses and also those that rely extensively on visual communications to achieve their business goals,” general manager of RADVISION's video business unit Roberto Giamagli noted in a statement.

Last month, Radvision announced that it has entered into a definitive merger agreement with Avaya (News - Alert), a global provider of business communications and collaboration systems and services.

Or in some cases, not even being able to make a clear connection at all? Curtiss Singleton, Director of Sales for the Americas at Revolabs, Inc., discusses conferencing solutions that not only provide unmatched audio quality, but ones that also “cut the cord”—giving you the freedom to move around the workspace. Doug Green, Publisher of Telecom Reseller, speaks with JP Carney, President and CEO of Revolabs, about the company, the importance of audio quality in UC, the compatibility of their products with various UC platforms, and their acquisition by Yamaha after one year. They discuss how clear audio for teleconferencing is the core element of true collaboration.
