Transform Any Meeting Toom Based PC|Mac|Chromebox Into a Fully Interoperable Videoconference System
Jun. 15, 2015, New York, NY – Collaboration Squared, a global conferencing and collaboration service provider, today announced the launch of Ubiety Room, an app & cloud service that turns any meeting room based PC | Mac | Chromebox into a fully interoperable video conference system.
Think traditional video conference endpoint functionality, but using the existing multipurpose compute hardware customers already have in meeting rooms. With the Ubiety Room software these devices can video call from Ubiety Room to Ubiety Room, but more importantly to/from traditional vide conference endpoints like Cisco/Polycom/LifeSize, Lync/Skype users, Cisco Jabber users, Ubiety users, Ubiety meetings and even can call into other bridge vendors such as Cisco/Polycom/Blue Jeans meetings. All meaning customers can leverage their existing investments/infrastructure/services. Included is also call escalation to 25 sites from the room device and a free Ubiety virtual meeting room per Ubiety Room customer as well.
In addition, after being selected as a winner the Innovation Showcase at Enterprise Connect earlier this year, Collaboration Squared is announcing they’ve been selected for the Innovation Showcase at Infocomm 2015 Orlando this coming Wednesday June 17th to Friday June 19th and will be exclusively demonstrating Ubiety Room in Hall D, Booth #5885 and are entered with a chance to win the $10,000 prize.
“Our goal with the Ubiety Room solution is not to replace customers traditional video conference endpoints, but to complement them. With Ubiety Room we can enable video collaboration in many more meeting rooms for very low cost using customers existing multipurpose compute devices with USB peripherals and our software/cloud” says Daryl Hutchings, Collaboration Squared CEO “The important part is that we offer full interoperability to their existing video collaboration endpoints, bridges, infrastructure and services for no extra cost.”
Collaboration Squared was selected for the Innovation Showcase for its innovative Ubiety cloud video collaboration solution, unlimited participant models, flexible contracts and new on-premise to hybrid cloud options. The company was also recognized for its commitment to the environment and its donation ‘give back’ program.
“Our research shows that the huddle room is a hot topic inside enterprises of all size” says Bill Haskins, UC Analyst at Wainhouse Research. “In order to collaboration-enable these smaller rooms, IT decision makers are looking for a cost-effective alternative that can deliver high quality and ease of use while remaining flexible enough to support an ever-growing number of collaborative applications. The Ubiety Room solution is positioned to fill this need head on.”
