Videxio partners with Pexip to help break down communication silos by offering a cloud-based service for video conferencing interoperability for Hangouts Meet
June 4, 2018, Oslo – Videxio is a provider of cloud video collaboration solutions for companies and organizations of all sizes, from start-ups to large enterprises. One of the key benefits of the Videxio service is the level of interoperability it provides to those utilizing videoconferencing solutions on different platforms and devices, ensuring maximum return on investment for videoconferencing users. Videxio is delighted to announce that it has signed an agreement with Google Cloud, in partnership with Pexip, and will be one of the first to offer video conferencing interoperability for Hangouts Meet.
The new Hangouts Meet interoperability service means that users will be able to join Hangouts Meet using their existing video communication solution, whether that be Skype for Business, videoconferencing systems from the likes of Cisco or Polycom, or Videxio clients for desktop and browsers including Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge and Apple Safari. The service is based on Pexip Infinity cloud technology and utilizes both the powerful Google Cloud Platform and the Videxio Midgard platform to ensure security, quality and reliability for users. The general release of the service is scheduled for 20th June 2018.
“Hangouts Meet is designed to provide our customers with frictionless meetings. We are excited to work with Videxio to bring a cloud interoperability managed service utilizing Google Cloud Platform and Pexip Infinity to make it easy and fast for customers to enable interoperability with their existing infrastructure,” said Rany Ng, Director of Product Management at Google.
“In partnership with Pexip, we are delighted to be chosen as one of the first companies to provide interoperability as a managed service between Hangouts Meet and other existing video capable meeting solutions. We believe that this provides an excellent opportunity for our existing partners, opens up opportunities for us with Google Cloud partners and provides an important service for users, extending videoconferencing interoperability to a whole new audience. With no complex technical setup required, companies can enjoy interoperability in seconds,” says Tom-Erik Lia, CEO and Co-Founder of Videxio.
“Pexip Infinity was designed for this very purpose – as an interoperable and easy-to-use video collaboration platform that runs in the cloud,” said Odd Sverre Østlie, Pexip CEO. “Our recent announcement of interoperability capabilities for Hangouts Meet is a major step forward in bringing communications solutions together, and it is great to see it being deployed and made available as part of the Videxio cloud service.”
