Avaya-Owned Radvision Announces Powerful New Multipoint Control Unit

By Jody Ray Bennett, TMCnet Contributing Writer

The Avaya (News - Alert)-owned company, Radivision, today announced the next generation of real-time video collaboration for businesses, in the form of its Scopia Elite 6000 Series of multipoint control units (MCU).

The latest edition to the Elite Series MCU portfolio is expected to cut the cost-per-port for HD video conferencing in half and reduce power usage by up to 75 percent, Yahoo reports, as well as offering double the density and performance of traditional hardware-based MCUs.  

The Scopia Elite 6000 Series MCU is reported to feature the following:

Both 1080p and 60fps video content channels, as well as simultaneous H.264 High Profile and H.264 Scalable Video Coding (SVC), for efficient bandwidth usage.

Hybrid architecture will support 40 1080p ports on a single 1U system, as well as some of the most powerful processing abilities on the market. Scopia's "Virtual MCU" provides intelligently distributed, multi-user architecture for optimum scalability and resiliency.

Video overlays, intuitive conference creation and on-screen auto attendant features streamline the entire process. Users are given the ability to moderate meetings either by way of Endpoint-compatible onscreen menus or through the Scopia Control iPad application.

Scopia Desktop and Scopia Mobile, both supported on the Elite 6000 Series MCU, provide a simple and intuitive interface for video conferencing while traveling. Users can moderate calls, share content, record and stream videos, and even choose individual layouts for up to 28 active participants.

The Scopia Management System will also prove useful to IT administrators and service providers offering cloud conferencing by video. Google (News - Alert) Maps integration provides a geographic view of collaboration topology, as well as multi-tenency, concierge services and massive scalability enhancements for large enterprises.

The Scopia Elite 6000 also supports broad telepresence interoperability, including support for Scopia TIP Gateway, and is fully interoperable with telepresence systems such as LifeSize, Cisco/Tandberg and Polycom (News - Alert) as a result.
