Blue Jeans Network has made it possible for people to connect with video conferencing across variety of programs and tools, including Skype (News - Alert) and Lync. The company’s real time video sharing allows meeting participants to easily play stored video files such as movies, trailers, commercials, product vignettes, or training videos, in real-time, across all desktop, mobile, and conference room platforms in a meeting.

Recently, ZTE (News - Alert) Corporation, provider of telecommunications equipment, has forged new partnership agreement with Blue Jeans Network to offer the company’s cloud-based video conferencing services to its customers.

Qian Min, General Manager of ZTE UC&C said, “As a longtime pioneer in video collaboration services and the leader in interoperability, we saw partnering with Blue Jeans Network as a natural and seamless fit.”

The new partnership will allow ZTE Corporation customers to reap the benefits of face-to-face collaboration so they can connect easily to one another via their ZTE VCS products.

Users can also explore and utilize other innovative features such as push to talk capability to reduce the video's volume and allow the meeting participants to talk over the video; automatic muting of the conference's audio when the video file is being shared; slider functionality to adjust the relative sizes of the video being played, and more.

Stu Aaron, chief commercial officer at Blue Jeans Network said, “This partnership is another example of sharing our expertise in interoperability and expanding our ecosystem. We look forward to working with ZTE to proliferate easy, open, and affordable video conferencing.”

By end of this month, ZTE Corporation is releasing its ZTE VCS room system with Blue Jeans video conferencing services in the U.S., Europe, Australia and Singapore.
