BrightCom has released a new ClearView Desktop Video Conferencing offering, which provides video conferencing for the personal desktop with integration for telepresence, room video conferencing, and mobile cart video conferencing systems.
The new offering allows desktop users to connect to the company’s Lumina Telepresence and ClearView Room and Mobile Cart Video Conferencing offerings as well as SIP enabled video conferencing systems.
The offering is powered by BrightCom’s Visual Collaboration System (VCS), a network based, software driven conferencing infrastructure that delivers video, audio and a full set of web conferencing capabilities. It allows desktop meeting participants to log into the VCS online meeting environment and connect to other desktops, conference rooms and telepresence suites.
According to BrightCom, desktop participants will be able to use the VCS system to present data in its native format, allowing for real-time collaboration and markup of information such diverse formats as Adobe PDF, PowerPoint and Microsoft Office programs.
In addition, VCS can display up to 16 video broadcasts with an unlimited number of meeting participants broadcasting from desktop web cams, conference rooms or telepresence suites, the company said.
The ClearView Desktop Video Conferencing meeting environment features include video conference system for a home or office desktop; USB based HD or SD camera; acoustic echo cancellation system with integrated microphone and speaker; hands free audio; compatibility with Windows, Linux or Macintosh; and interactive document, presentation and image sharing straight from desktop files.
Bob McCandless, CEO of BrightCom, said: “As we extend our range of telepresence and video conferencing products, we always keep in mind our solutions’ ease of use. These solutions allow anyone in a business to push the big green button on the BrightCom remote to connect to whomever and wherever they want instantly. Our Desktop line is a perfect way to connect from a personal home or business office.”
