Conferencing Zone Week in Review: Yamaha, Atlona, Tixeo & More

June 17, 2017

Welcome back to the week in review, where we take a look at all the top stories making headlines in the Conferencing Zone this week.

The week started off with the news that Yamaha is creating a dedicated UC department, which will focus on solutions that enhance communication and continue to develop products that help organizations reach their business goals. At the helm of this new department will be Revolabs, which is conferencing solutions provider and subsidiary of Yamaha. Find out everything you need to know HERE.

Next up, we took a look at a new HDL300 system that is aiming to improve audio conferencing. When we hear the word conferencing, we often think of video or phone calls. How great is the visual quality? How many participants can a certain type of phone handle? However, audio is also an important part of any successful conference, which means that the right solutions need to be in place. Find out more HERE.

The camera itself is also an important component of any conferencing experience. In the hopes of creating a camera that guarantees a quality experience every time, Atlona has just announced its AT-HDVS-CAM PTZ (pan–tilt–zoom) conferencing camera. The camera is designed to address software-defined conferencing systems with a soft-codec solution that supports more options. Everything you need to know is HERE.

Additionally, security is another overlooked aspect of conferencing solutions. People don’t often think of conferencing as unsafe, but it’s important to remember that basically anything can be hacked into these days. So, people who use their phones for video conferencing purposes are at risk if a fraudster manages to hack their phone. All it takes is a single fraudster to listen in on an important conference call, and there can be huge ramifications. To fight this problem, Tixeo has launched its new secure video conferencing for Android app. Full details are HERE.

That’s all for this week. Come back next week to read all the latest news in the Conferencing  space.
