June 29, 2013

India-based Ecosmob Technologies, a VoIP and telecom solutions provider, announced it has partnered with Mexican audio conferencing company Audioweb for a FreeSWITCH-based audio communications conferencing project. The project involves the installation and commissioning of a FreeSWITCH conferencing solution. Ecosmob offers Asterisk services, FreeSWITCH service and voice broadcasting solution COSMOBS to clients. Ecosmob provides VoIP based business solutions via open source consulting which encompasses various industry verticals and businesses.

Ricoh Americas Corporation has teamed up with Vidyo, Inc. to roll out their high-tech videoconferencing device P3000 Unified Communication System, in the United States. The P3000 Unified Communication System is a self-contained videoconferencing system, which is as sleek as any other smartphone. With a 1.6 inches, or 40 mm, size structure, this system accompanies a camera, microphone, speaker, network connectivity and a push-button console. This trendy-looking P3000 system is built on Vidyo's patented H.264 scalable video coding architecture that offers unparalleled telepresence-quality video conferencing over the Internet, 4G and LTE networks.

Avizia, a privately held technology company based in Reston, VA, has unveiled the new Educator solution and mobile iOS application designed to let teachers take control of large videoconferencing rooms.

“Video conferencing can be a powerful tool for connecting any organization, but traditional video conferencing rooms are so complex they typically require dedicated facilitators to handle setting up and managing the dizzying array of layouts, displays, cameras, projectors and remotes,” said Mike Baird, CEO at Avizia. “Our goal with the Educator product is to dramatically simplify the experience in video conferencing rooms, so that users can focus on presenting or teaching without the technology getting in the way.”

Even small businesses need Web conferencing, but the cost of procuring and the complexity of maintaining such a solution often intimidates many small business owners into looking for alternatives. Offering the latest Web conferencing technological advances in a single kit, Brother International Corporation has unveiled OmniJoin Web Conferencing in a Box. The new kit consists of an HD webcam, compact USB speakerphone and four months of the OmniJoin basic Web conferencing service.
