Avistar Announces Manageable HD Support Across Its Line of Desktop Videoconferencing Solutions and Extended Support for IBM Lotus Sametime 8.5
Innovative HD Desktop Solution Will Be Demonstrated at Lotusphere 2010, Avistar Booth #709
ORLANDO, Fla. & SAN MATEO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Avistar Communications Corp. (www.avistar.com), a leader in unified visual communications solutions, today announced it will demonstrate at Lotusphere full high definition (HD) videoconferencing, designed to be manageable, scalable and visually exciting, without consuming critical desktop resources or saturating corporate networks that are needed for business applications. Together with its technology partner LifeSize, Avistar will showcase this innovative desktop HD technology at Lotusphere, booth #709.
With the introduction of IBM’s enhanced Telephony Conferencing Interface, Avistar has begun integrating its all-software multiparty bridging solution, the Avistar C3 Conference™ and licensed elements of Avistar’s bandwidth management, the Avistar C3 Command™ solution, with Lotus Sametime 8.5. The integration of Avistar solutions with Lotus Sametime 8.5 will ensure a desktop visual communications experience that is manageable, scalable and economical, while providing an exciting experience to the end-user.
“The game has changed for desktop videoconferencing, now that HD is available,” said Stephen Epstein, CMO, Avistar. “But with that said, HD support has to be introduced in a thoughtful and intelligent way. Avistar has recognized that providing HD desktop videoconferencing, without proper controls, bridging software and application intelligence, a client’s network can become saturated and precious desktop resources can be consumed which are needed for business critical applications.
“Where other vendors have ignored these challenges in favor of getting their HD desktop support to market early, Avistar has focused on addressing the network and desktop challenges that come with desktop HD by using its years of bandwidth management expertise, in addition to building and thoroughly testing its media processing logic, to ensure a seamless, reliable and exciting HD experience to the end-user,” Epstein continued.
“We believe the industry will welcome our approach to HD and our extended support of Lotus Sametime 8.5, which will allow system and network administrators to have full control over their desktop visual communications environment, while lower operating costs and providing a world class experience to the end user,” Epstein concluded.
