Grandstream Updates IPVideoTalk Plans to Help Businesses Adjust to Teleworking

By Erik Linask, Group Editorial Director  |  April 06, 2020

During a time when more companies are implementing remote work strategies than ever, tech companies are coming to their aid with unified communications and conferencing solutions to support government telework mandates.  With so many workers suddenly faced with the reality of working from home for the first time, having easy to use technology to collaborate with colleagues and customers is critical to maintaining productive workflows.

To help support companies as the adjust to what is quickly becoming the new normal, Grandstream, a Platinum sponsor of ITEXPO 2020 in February, announced new plans for its WebRTC-based IPVideoTalk virtual meeting service. 

With IPVideoMeetings, businesses can host meetings, training sessions, and video conferences to keep teams engaged, connected, and productive.  For many, working at home is an unfamiliar experience, and being able to continue somewhat normal engagement can help them adjust.

IPVideoTalk allows users to join meetings from basically any device – desktops, laptops, mobile devices – and includes HD audio and video, single-click joining, cloud storage for recordings, screen and content sharing, meeting controls, and more.  Grandstream recently upgraded the service to support additional video feeds, more participants, and longer meetings. 

For essential employees still needing to be in their offices, IPVideoTalk is compatible with Grandstream’s GVC video conferencing devices, so employees can connect to conferences at all times.  One the current crisis passes and businesses resume more normal operations, this will allow companies to continue to support remote and mobile workers and flexible arrangements.
