RADVISION Achieves Qualification for Microsoft Unified Communications
FAIR LAWN, N.J. & TEL AVIV, Israel --(Business Wire)--
RADVISION® Ltd. (Nasdaq: RVSN), a leading technology and end-to-end
solution provider for unified visual communications, today announced
that its SCOPIA
Video Gateway for Microsoft Lync has achieved Microsoft (News - Alert)
qualification for video interoperability with Microsoft Lync 2010 and
Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2. The SCOPIA Video Gateway (News - Alert)
is now fully qualified as a video solution for Microsoft unified
communications (UC) solutions.
The SCOPIA Video Gateway allows Microsoft Lync 2010 and Microsoft Office
Communications Server 2007 R2 users to connect to standards-based HD
video conferencing systems, telepresence rooms or video infrastructure.
The SCOPIA Video Gateway allows users to enjoy exceptional high-quality
video, with features such as presence and click-to-call capabilities
through the familiar Lync and Microsoft Office Communications Server
2007 R2 interface.
"The RADVISION SCOPIA Video Gateway for Microsoft Lync enables our
customers to bridge the islands of existing video conference devices
with their unified communications platform, helping maximize their
return on existing collaboration investments," said Kirk Gregersen,
general manager Lync marketing at Microsoft Corp. "Microsoft Lync allows
workers to communicate virtually anytime, anywhere with an Internet
connection and browser - including with standards-based video systems
and telepresence suites.
Scalable, intuitive video conferencing with standards-based systems
The SCOPIA Video Gateway is designed with an architecture that meets the
ease of use, scalability and affordability requirements of the broad UC
market - from an entry-level option to highly scalable solutions for
large enterprises and service providers offering multi-tenant
cloud-based UC services. Presence information is displayed in the
contact list for any standards-based video conferencing system and
telepresence room, enabling intuitive click-to-call
capabilities. Additionally, enterprise end-to-end security is maintained
through reliable and standard protocols, while also providing firewall
traversal for seamless connectivity across corporate boundaries.
"GeniSys Global (News - Alert) offers Lync-based unified commuications as a service,
and we also use it internally, so we know first-hand the benefits of UC
interoperability," said David Spears (News - Alert), CEO of GeniSys Global. "The
RADVISION SCOPIA Video Gateway enhances our offering because it allows
our customers to bridge Microsoft UC with their existing investment in
traditional video systems. We see this as a unique value-add, and we're
delighted to offer this service - which wouldn't be possible without the
SCOPIA Video Gateway."
"RADVISION offers the first and only Microsoft-qualified gateway
solution for video conferencing, providing a unique opportunity for
businesses with existing video deployments to use those assets with a
Microsoft UC environment," said Roberto Giamagli, general manager for
RADVISION's video business unit. "Video is a key component of UC, and
the ability for our customers to use their H.323 video networks with
Microsoft Lync means teams can collaborate that much more effectively,
regardless of the endpoint or client they're using - whether they're on
the desktop, in a conference room or connecting via mobile video."
SCOPIA Video Gateway deployments can grow from a small workgroup to an
entire enterprise with unlimited scalability and dynamic resource
allocation. The SCOPIA Video Gateway is available today through
RADVISION's reseller partner network.
