Recently, IOCOM announced the general availability of Linux for Visimeet users. With this, the company offers true "any to any" connectivity and collaboration, whether it’s on desktops, workstations, conference rooms or mobile devices, and allows Linux users to break free from previous video conferencing restrictions.

Visimeet is a video conferencing and collaboration tool that allows desktop users with a single camera to shift to high-definition (HD) Telepresence (News - Alert) conference rooms.

Using the computer as a platform offers the flexibility to utilize commercial off the shelf hardware to produce a meeting space with the video, audio, and data input points needed at a low cost.

Visimeet is a software-based solution that allows users to connect with video, audio and data conferencing. This tool works with any internet-enabled endpoint, including room systems, desktop PCs, notebooks and mobile devices.

Without the cost and complexity of proprietary systems, IOCOM concentrates on offering high-performance solutions that provide superior quality audio and video, the company said in a recent statement.

“We are pleased to support the varied use cases of our customer base, and this new development demonstrates our continued focus on providing the most seamless user experience possible across all computing platforms," offered Jon Swanson, chief technology officer at IOCOM.

Recently, the company introduced its “Cash for Clunkers” program, which lets companies to trade in old video conferencing devices for new servers. Allowing them to run across the entire organization, it also licenses them to IOCOM’s software-based service. Facilitating safe H.323/SIP bridging into large conference suites that may remain after the trade in, companies that participate in the new promotion will get new servers to host Visimeet, IOCOM’s cloud-based video conferencing service.
