Latin America to Benefit from Advanced Conferencing Features

October 23, 2015

While some of us tend to take technological advantages like conferencing for granted, it’s worth noting that other regions of the world are just as keen to save time and money by doing the same.

That may be one reason why Grandstream Networks, a provider of SIP unified communication solutions, has certified its products with Elastix, the largest open source software solution for unified communications in Latin America. Among the products mentioned in the joint venture announcement are Grandstream’s GVC3200 Video Conferencing system and GXP1600 series of Small Business IP Phones.

“Grandstream is proud to extend its partnership with Elastix through the certification of these new products,” said David Li, CEO of Grandstream. “We value our work with Elastix to provide quality and reliable SIP services to their customers throughout Latin America and the world.”

Of particular interest to Elastix was the GVC3200, a groundbreaking room-based video conferencing system that’s easy to install and use while featuring a suite of powerful video conferencing features.

“The SIP-based system supports up to nine video feeds, up to full 1080p HD video resolutions, 3 HDMI outputs for use of up to 3 TV screens, a PTZ camera with 12x optical zoom and content sharing for presentations and marking up a document,” Grandstream noted in a release. The GVC3200 is based on Android – allowing the GVC3200 to bridge calls from Android apps such as Skype and Google Hangouts into a SIP videoconference.

“We’re thrilled the Elastix community can now widen their range of services by offering solid video-conferencing capabilities to new or existing deployments with the GVC3200 from Grandstream,” said Edgar Landivar, CEO of Elastix. “Our partnership with Grandstream strives to offer fully interoperable hardware to guarantee optimal performance of Elastix solutions. Grandstream’s new small business IP-phones are positioned to increase the price-to-performance ratio always found with Elastix UC solutions.”
