IOCOM's Visimeet Mobile Turns iOS Devices into Video Collaboration Endpoints

Walk back a couple of decades and take a peek at how difficult, cumbersome and expensive it was for people from all parts of the world to meet and discuss business, fast forward to today and see how that compares with the present.

There's a world of difference with video conferencing being touted as a dynamic means of communication that has reset the default values of how meetings can be conducted. IOCOM, a provider of universal video conferencing and collaboration solutions, is making that happen.

Keeping pace with that trend of thought, IOCOM announced that Visimeet Mobile, a cloud-based video collaboration platform, now available for iOS enabled devices, is well positioned to deliver high performance solutions that provide superior quality audio and video, without the cost and complexity of proprietary systems.

In addition to turning iPads and iPhones into video collaboration endpoints, Visimeet Mobile will now allow participants to join meetings from any iOS device, connecting with other mobile users and those on laptops, desktops, and in HD telepresence conference rooms.

Visimeet enables users to stay connected, meet at any time on any device, regardless of location, share files and images, view data in real time, share information, message to other participants and even share URLs for collaborative Web browsing.

"By enabling mobile devices to effectively participate in video conferences with room systems and desktop users, Visimeet is taking a giant step toward ensuring our customers increase productivity while reducing resources,” said Tim Hackett, CEO at IOCOM.

Used effectively, there appears to be no doubt that video conferencing has so many new dimensions that takes away the complexity of business meetings, enabling faster decisions, quicker time to market, giving users that little edge over others.

IOCOM is allowing video conferencing infrastructure to be traded in for cloud based solutions through its new Cash for Clunkers program, which enables companies to trade in old video conferencing infrastructure and devices for new servers and licenses to IOCOM's software-based solution that can be run across the entire organization.

How often have you had a teleconference where—because of audio-related issues—you had difficulty in conducting an important meeting? 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.
