ProtonMedia's ProtoSphere 2.1, Featuring Microsoft Support, Now Available for Download
PHILADELPHIA --(Business Wire)--
ProtonMedia (News - Alert), the developer of ProtoSphere®, the market-leading virtual
collaboration environment for the enterprise, announced today that
ProtoSphere® 2.1 is now available for download.
ProtoSphere® 2.1 dramatically improves the toolset and capabilities of
the first and only immersive, 3D social collaboration environment
integrated directly with Microsoft's (News - Alert) Office Productivity Suite
(including Outlook®, SharePoint® and Lync®). Version 2.1 allows users to
book virtual rooms for meetings and events directly from their Outlook
calendars, dramatically simplifying the creation of immersive 3D
ProtonMedia is rapidly becoming a formidable player in the collaboration
space and with Version 2.1, the company is deepening its penetration
into the enterprise. "I couldn't be more proud of how ProtoSphere is
growing," said Ron Burns (News - Alert), ProtonMedia's CEO. "It's a testament to the
team's dedication and creativity. The pace at which we're expanding into
the enterprise with new tools and features is really very exciting."
Burns recently presented ProtoSphere® 2.1 to enthusiastic crowds at both
Microsoft's 2012 Worldwide Partner Conference in Toronto and at
Polycom's (News - Alert) July 16th press conference in San Jose. At the San
Jose event, Polycom not only announced
a variety of new products and initiatives, including its new
RealPresence® Platform, the company also specifically referred
to ProtoSphere® as an example of how to integrate with Polycom's
ProtoSphere®, which already uses many of Microsoft's business
productivity technologies (such as Lync audio, text, IM, presence,
application sharing and Office 365), will now be "Polycom Ready."
Polycom Ready is a Polycom Partner Network program that verifies
products as interoperable with Polycom solutions and applications.
ProtoSphere® 2.1 firmly positions ProtonMedia to enable remote worker
collaboration, improve training results and facilitate Human Resource's
on-boarding programs among other uses throughout the enterprise. Armed
with recent survey results such as those from a leading life sciences
research firm demonstrating that 75% of users strongly agreed that it
was easy for them to learn while using the platform and 95% stating that
they were more engaged than with standard web tools (such as WebEx or
GoToMeeting), ProtonMedia is on the rise.
"Just wait, there's so much more to come," Burns added.
