Radvision Announces Scopia V3 iOS App for Videoconferencing
Tel Aviv, Israel-based Radvision has announced that its Scopia V3 videoconferencing app is now available for free download in the iTunes Store. The app works with the Apple iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch.
The app offers users two-way video, and the ability to create conferences with up to 28 participants. It works with the Scopia video infrastructure, and can connect with standards-based videoconferencing systems, telepresence systems, and unified communications applications (such as Microsoft Lync).
Besides supporting large groups, the app includes extras such as data collaboration with review capabilities, meeting moderation, and analytics. Sharing features let participants view spreadsheets, documents, images, and presentations. They can also review material that was previously shared during a conference without interrupting the presenter. Moderation tools allow for recording meetings or disconnecting unneeded participants.
The app works over mobile broadband and Wi-Fi connections.
"Scopia Mobile takes advantage of the extensive video expertise we have developed over many years and extends it to personal devices, which are becoming an increasingly important component of any enterprise's communications strategy," says Roberto Giamagli, general manager for Radvision's video business unit. "We're delighted to deliver this innovative, fully interoperable, and user-friendly application to iOS and other platforms, allowing our customers to take advantage of the ‘bring your own device' phenomenon and participate in effective video meetings regardless of their location."
