Oslo, Norway (PRWEB) October 30, 2012
Media Network Services (MNS) today announced the public beta release of MCU1.com, the next generation Multipoint Control Unit (MCU) designed to put users in control of their collaboration environments and drive mass adoption of HD Video Conferencing and Virtual Meeting Rooms (VMR).
“We believe technological complexity and limitations in user control and lack of ownership of their collaboration environment are the key factors to why HD video communication still has a way to go before becoming the preferred tool for business communication,” says Hans Fredrik Johansen, CEO of MNS. “With the launch of MCU1.com, we have replaced complexity with simplicity, and are putting the user back in control to drive mass-adoption of HD video conferencing."
Built on industry standards and delivered as Software as a Service (SaaS) integrated on MNS’ Worldwide Quality of Service (QoS) Cloud with Internet access points across the globe, MCU1.com ensures optimal media routing regardless of where people call from.
Video Conferencing Service Providers, Resellers and others can with MCU1.com provide clients with powerful, scalable and easy-to-use HD VMRs without investing or managing complex infrastructures or networks.
“The MCU1.com business model is very favorable to service providers and we welcome anyone interested in making HD video conferencing less complex for end users to become a MCU1.com reseller,” says Kjell Oksendal, CMO and SVP Global Alliances at MNS.
As all services provided by MNS, MCU1.com is only available through resellers.
