Zoom Unified Meeting Experience Connects With Room Systems

SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Zoom Video Communications ( http://zoom.us) today announced it is adding the Room Connector to its popular Unified Meeting Experience (UMX) service to support H.323 room systems from Cisco, Polycom and other video conferencing vendors. With the Room Connector, users on H.323 systems can join HD video meetings and screen share with up to 25 video streams on desktop or mobile devices.

The Room Connector is a piece of lightweight software that can be installed on any virtual machine in minutes. It can also support rooms with dual screens for simultaneous video and presentation streams. The Room Connector is the first solution that runs as a hybrid cloud service – administrative tasks run in the public cloud while meetings are conducted in the private cloud.  

"Today, more than 650,000 participants use UMX from desktop and mobile devices," said Eric Yuan, Zoom's CEO. "With the Room Connector, thousands of room systems can now easily collaborate with these cloud participants."

"Ease of use and accessibility are absolute requirements for a successful video calling service," explains Derek Abrams, Wainhouse Research analyst. "When we tested the Zoom UMX service, we were impressed by how quickly we were able to register, launch a call, invite others, and start collaborating – with full HD quality. We believe that no up-front cost services, like Zoom, will play a major role in driving video conferencing beyond large enterprises and into the collaboration-hungry SMB space."

"Multimedia conference solutions must be high quality, affordable and scalable. They must traverse different networks, operating systems and platforms easily and securely," said Rick Seeley, University of Northern Iowa. "Zoom UMX meets these needs. Our Zoom meetings are conducted from almost anywhere, anytime, and from most desktop or mobile devices. This underscores Zoom's commitment to providing high impact, high quality conferencing solutions."

Zoom's Personal Plan is free. The Enterprise Plan is $9.99/month per host. The Room Connector will be available in May 2013 and is no additional cost to Enterprise subscribers.

Zoom will demonstrate UMX at Enterprise Connect, March 18-21, 2013 in Orlando.

About ZoomZoom is a people-centric cloud service that improves the quality and effectiveness of collaboration.  Zoom is a privately held company headquartered in Santa Clara, California. For more information, visit http://zoom.us or follow us @zoom_us.
