Benefits of Videoconferencing for Mobile Workforce
“ENCORE is being used by our clients to solve a variety of business needs,” stated Mark Cray, EVP of Managed Video and UC Platforms. “Now that video is on laptops and mobile devices, our clients are able to put themselves in the middle of any business process or interaction to share real-time information and make better decisions.”
Recent ENCORE success stories
- A mid-western College of Osteopathic Medicine chose ENCORE for videoconferencing mobility. The College has integrated ENCORE into their existing Distance Learning environment to extend courses over the internet via ENCORE’s “skype-like” web-based desktop solution. The University is now able to connect students and professors from across the globe via the internet into their video-enabled classrooms.
- A Department of Defense (DOD) agency located in Colorado Springs, Colorado chose ENCORE to provide situational awareness of operations. The agency will use ENCORE to bring in live video feeds from military operations into virtual meeting rooms for dispersed multi-agency operations teams to observe and direct via video conferencing. This capability will provide command and control decision-makers with the ability to receive real-time situational awareness of operations.
- AGT has expanded into the Sub-Saharan African market through a partnership with Kathea, the leading Polycom video conferencing provider in South Africa. AGT’s ENCORE and FATHOM HD are the core platforms for SureView Video Services launched by Kathea in May, 2011. Using the ENCORE UC Video platform, SureView will connect video conferencing room systems, web-based desktops, and iPads/iPhones across enterprise networks and the internet.
“It is exciting to see clients adopt a position of inclusion with video conferencing, where they are allowing users to join from any device,” stated Mike Valletutti, CEO.
For existing video conferencing users, ENCORE eliminates the obstacles in creating a true end-to-end video conferencing experience in seamlessly connecting its mobile workforce across the most commonly used end points today. ENCORE was designed to be placed on the edge of the private and public network, and as a result, does not require unnecessary interaction with internal IT department to open ports. ENCORE is compatible with both Polycom RMX and Cisco Codian network infrastructure solutions for multipoint meetings, and includes internal HD/SD ports for extending H.323 point-to-point with iOS-based mobile devices. With support for H.329 content and live desktop sharing, tablet and smart phone users can receive live content while interacting via VoIP, in addition to streaming video.
