AVAYA News - Australian Reseller eVideo Launches Avaya-Radvision SCOPIA XT5000
By Jacqueline Lee, Contributing Writer
Australian video conferencing and telepresence company eVideo has just stated that it will launch the Avaya-Radvision SCOPIA XT5000 in their homeland.
The SCOPIA XT5000 is a room-sized video conferencing solution that combines advanced dual HD 1080p/60fps video and content, HD audio, H.264 High Profile and Scalable Video Coding (SVC) technology. SVC, an extension to the H.264 codec, allows video conferencing devices to send multi-layered video streams for improved resolution, quality and frame rate.
The XT5000 is also designed to deliver exceptional audio quality with CD-quality 20 kHz audio output.
“The SCOPIA XT5000 is a top of the line room system with a unique combination of features and modern user interface, eVideo are thrilled to be offering the XT5000 to customers,” said eVideo CEO and managing director Tom Morgan in a statement.
Additional features of the XT5000 include capabilities for nine-way video conferencing. End users can also operate the device using an iPad enabled with multi-touch control, as well as can take advantage of SCOPIA Mobile by joining video conferences from any location via their mobile devices.
“SCOPIA Mobile is unique because it is fully interoperable with standards-based videoconferencing, allowing voice, video and data collaboration with telepresence and room systems,” said Bob Romano, vice president of global marketing at Radvision (News - Alert).
“It also has unique capabilities like our slider feature, which allows each user to review previously presented content without interrupting the call. And it is simple to use with one-touch click-to-join capabilities, full moderation capabilities, and great use of Apple’s (News - Alert) multi-touch platform.”
The SCOPIA XT5000 also uses approximately 60 percent less bandwidth than other video conferencing solutions thanks to H.264 High Profile coding.
Avaya (News - Alert) acquired Radvision, which is based out of Tel Aviv, in June. The integration of Radvision’s enterprise video infrastructure and high-value endpoints with Avaya’s Aura Unified Communications platform is a strategy designed to accelerate the adoption of video collaboration by businesses and other organizations.
The eVideo team is demonstrating the SCOPIA XT5000 across Australia to give customers a firsthand view of the device and its possibilities. Furthermore, potential customers can view videos about the device on the eVideo website or contact the company to book a demonstration.
