INFOCUS ENHANCES VIDEO CONFERENCING POSSIBILITIES WITH CONX
Visual communications industry pioneer InFocus Corporation makes it easier for people to connect and collaborate across platforms and the globe with a major expansion of its ConX Video Meeting (pronounced “Connects”) cloud-based group video conferencing service. The enhanced abilities include: the addition of full HD meeting rooms that can connect up to 25 participants, new Web browser plug-ins and mobile apps that make it easier for people to participate from their devices, and more affordable pricing.
“In today’s business world where BYOD is the norm, it’s important that people are able to use their own devices to meet face-to-face from anywhere, in HD quality, and for an affordable price,” said Glenn Jystad, director, product marketing at InFocus. “With ConX, it doesn’t matter if you join a meeting from a landline in audio only, from legacy video conferencing equipment in your meeting room, or an iPhone; you can have an effective HD collaboration session with any device.”
ConX Video Meeting works like a traditional audio-only conference bridge; participants dial in from their SIP or H.323 video calling system, Windows or OSX computer, iOS or Android mobile devices, Microsoft Lync or other app such as Jabber. They type in a secure room number and access code and then, through the cloud, ConX joins all the participants together, face to face, and enables data sharing. The virtual meeting room is accessible 24/7 without any scheduling required, giving customers the flexibility to connect with anyone at any time. There is no cost for participants to access a ConX Meeting Room and there are no additional usage fees. Only an Internet connection is required to meet.
ConX enhancements also include a 25-seat HD room, monthly billing options and a room control portal called HostConX. Six and 12-seat HD rooms are also available.
