Orlando, Fla. (PRWEB) June 12, 2013
At InfoComm 2013 today, AGT, a leader in managed and cloud video conferencing solutions, announces it is previewing a new desktop video client and the next generation of the EncoreB2B mobile video app. Delivered via Video-as-a-Service, both solutions can be white-labeled and bring together PC and Mac desktops to a variety HD conference room systems (Cisco, Polycom, Lifesize, AVer and more), mobile devices, web browsers, Microsoft Lync, and will also support WebRTC and GoogleTalk. Ensuring a simplified experience, interfaces are user-friendly, intuitive and for the first time, offer email and URI entry for meetings, allowing users to join by simply entering an email address.
“Being a provider in a market that is both crowded and experiencing dramatic growth, it is critical for us to deliver managed and cloud video solutions that are not only purpose-built for today’s high demand for agnostic video conferencing, but provide our end users and partners an easy and intuitive method for conferencing from any platform,” explains Ben Atha, CEO of AGT. “In addition to offering a variety of deployment options, our new desktop video client and redesigned mobile video apps demonstrate unprecedented capabilities, including email dialing and lookup services, video neighborhoods for cooperative enterprises, a unique firewall traversal technique and full branding.”
Desktop Video Client
The full-featured desktop video client connects PC and Mac desktops with HD conference room systems, tablets, smartphones, Microsoft Lync and web browsers. With a quick install to the desktop, end users experience a high-quality video conference with customizable screen layouts, high resolution content, email/URI dialing, improved continuous presence, real-time reporting and more. The new client will be available in Q3 and will also include WebRTC and GoogleTalk integration. For users without install capabilities and guests, AGT will continue to offer the full-featured EncoreB2B web browser client.
Mobile Video App
The new EncoreB2B mobile video app demonstrates a complete redesign, including a sleek, user-friendly interface. Similar to the desktop client, the new app is full-featured, and continues to support the concept of business-to-business video collaboration by delivering a hassle-free connection for off-net users. The mobile app is compatible with iOS and Android and AGT manages the entire application development process for partners interested in selling their own branded versions.
Mobile Pathway Protocol
AGT’s video conferencing solutions utilize a secure firewall traversal technique for laptops and mobile devices called Mobile Pathway Protocol. Mobile Pathway leverages open, safe and secure standard internet ports to extend video communication beyond the limitations of the traditional conference to any location, device or endpoint. Unlike standard H.323/SIP firewall traversal for mobile devices that typically fail when connecting to another network, Mobile Pathway eliminates technical difficulties with a hassle-free connection.
