The mid-sized XT4300 room system will be a stronger channel play than most of the Scopia lineup.
Avaya has beefed up its Engagement Solution portfolio with enhancements to the Scopia Videoconferencing platform, its flagship Scopia XT7100 room video conferencing system and the introduction of the new H175 Video Collaboration Station and E159/E169 Media Stations.
“Demand has shifted slightly from high-end room systems to more of a desktop tablet video conferencing environment,” said Ian Gould, Avaya UC Specialist. “We have seen huge increases in the number of mobile licenses we sell.” These announcements strengthen both the room systems and the mobile environment.
The Scopia line was acquired by Avaya in 2012 as part of its purchase of Radvision. Since then the high-quality video brand has been sold mainly to large enterprises, and mainly direct by Avaya, competing with top-end Cisco and Polycom offerings. However, a new room system, the Scopia XT4300, is a stronger channel product because while it has many of the high-end features for high-definition videoconferencing, it is aimed at small to midsized conference rooms, and is considerably less expensive.
