Vyopta Incorporated, a software developer of video and unified collaboration applications, has reportedly announced plans to launch a new software application, named Vyopta vControl, to help the users of TANDBERG MXP and C-series video conferencing systems in controlling video and voice calls and conferences. The application is compatible with the Apple iPod touch and Apple iPhone (News - Alert).
Enterprises using TANDBERG video conferencing systems can now leverage the Vyopta’s vControl to easily initiate video and voice calls and quickly join video and voice conferences.
Navigating through a universal interactive user interface offered by the application, users can control TANDBERG endpoints and TANDBERG Codian (News - Alert) MCU systems so that the audio conferencing tabletop endpoints are not needed. Its intuitive interface also helps users to benefit from its “click-to-call” dialing from phonebook and call history entries, and control the near-end and far-end PTZ camera, speaker volume and microphone of the teleconferencing system. ‘
The application is equipped with a number of useful features, such as flexibility to perform voice and video calls using IP address, e164 and URI dialing, real-time messaging for incoming and outgoing calls, and simplified ability to join conferences on any video or audio conference bridge. ‘
Vyopta vControl makes the deployment easy for the users, and reduces total cost of ownership associated with video conference endpoint systems. Using video technologies, Vyopta vContol aims to encourage the adoption of video and unified communications technologies. Users can download the Vyopta vControl application from the Apple (News - Alert) iTunes App Store or by visiting Vyopta’s Web site at www.vyopta.com.
According to Enrico Conedera, Americas Theater product manager at TANDBERG, the company is excited to have Vyopta as a value-added application developer that is helping to create greater value for its customers. Conedera said that vControl is a unique and innovative solution that enables TANDBERG users to integrate familiar applications into their video conferencing experience, which will make usage and adoption easier.
Alfredo Ramirez, president, Vyopta, said that in today’s environment, communications innovation is all about simplifying the user experience, particularly as it relates to the adoption of video conference systems. Ramirez added that the company is committed to developing and advancing unique video and unified collaboration applications that enhance user experience and support critical business functions.
In June, Vyopta unveiled a subscription based video network service that allows its customers to make use of advanced video communications technologies in an economical manner.
