AVer Information EVC100 Brings Enterprise-Class Video Conferencing Under $1,000

August 02, 2013

AVer Information, formerly known as AVerMedia Information, is a top provider of innovative video conferencing solutions for both SMBs and larger corporations — a category under which the company's newly launched product comfortably fits. Dubbed the EVC100, this offering is billed as the industry's first sub-$1,000, enterprise-class HD video conferencing solution, making it suitable for companies of any size.

Indeed, if the EVC100 can truly offer enterprise-grade performance and features at an MSRP of $999, it could easily be considered something of a game changer. Of course, it doesn't seem as though AVer is merely blowing smoke as the EVC100 sports some impressive capabilities — all backed by a three-year warranty.

To start with, the solution offers unique interoperability, even supporting communications with contacts via commercial offerings such as Skype and Google Hangouts, as well as "other Web-based mobile and desktop applications." This broad range of support is made possible through partnerships with cloud-based video services providers such as Blue Jeans Network and Vidtel.

That aside, the EVC100 also boasts H.323 and SIP compliance, making it compatible with pretty much every major video conferencing system. It also supports H.239 content sharing over wireless and VGA and HDMI connectivity.

In terms of hardware, the EVC100 features a high definition camera with pan and tilt movement, 4X digital zoom and an industry-leading 88-degree field of view. Furthermore, the EVC100's array microphone and full duplex echo cancellation ensures that audio quality will match the video.

“This end-point video conferencing solution can be used in conjunction with larger MCU bundles, and can be deployed comfortably even in enterprise-level rooms,” said Eric Yu, product management director at AVer Information, in a statement. “The EVC100 changes everything — it’s under $1,000, works out-of-the-box, is simple to use and enables every office of companies of any size — from SMBs to large companies — to deploy next-generation video conferencing capabilities.”
