Orange Business Services launches access from a tablet or mobile device to its cloud-based Open Videopresence with the Orange Video Meeting mobile application.
Available for both Android and Apple devices, the Orange Video Meeting app, powered by Scopia Mobile technology from Radvision, an Avaya Company, enables attendees to actively participate in videoconferencing sessions initiated through Orange Business Services’ Open Videopresence, which relies on Scopia Infrastructure. Available in 107 countries, Open Videopresence already allows meetings to combine equipment from the market’s major vendors, including various types of videoconference rooms, desktops and possibly telepresence rooms, on any network. PC and Mac access use the Scopia Desktop light and full-featured conferencing client from Radvision.
Orange Video Meeting is available for free downloading to a mobile device or tablet from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. After downloading the app, participants – whether they are employees, customers or partners – can easily join a videoconferencing session by clicking an e-mail link or through a mobile device calendar invitation. The smart URL will detect the device the participant is using and open the appropriate application to join the conference.
“Enabling video access whatever the device and the location is key to developing video usage,” said Eric Monchy, vice president of Videoconferencing, Orange Business Services. “Making access equally easy for employees, customers and partners, regardless of device or location, makes videoconferencing a go-to collaboration tool and not one that is reserved for special meetings. Orange Video Meeting, powered by Scopia Mobile from Radvision, enables one-touch remote access to videoconferencing in today's environment of ‘bring your own device’ and mobile workforces.”Using Orange Video Meeting enables users to fully participate through their personal or professional mobile device or tablet as they would at their desktops. Scopia Mobile is the industry's first standards-based mobile video application to enable HD videoconferencing. With Scopia Mobile technology embedded in Orange Video Meeting, participants can fully collaborate with audio, HD video and data sharing. If they are moderators, they can directly control and manage conferences from their mobile devices, just like if they were in a conference room or at their desktop.
