Vu Telepresence Unveils Next Generation Telepresence Technology: Vu Telepresence 3.0 with Enterprise Capability
CRANBERRY TOWNSHIP, Pa. --(Business Wire)--
Telepresence®, an innovator and leader in telepresence
technology, today announced it has upgraded its existing solution with
the release of Vu Telepresence (News - Alert) 3.0, a more robust version of the Vu Pro©.
The evolution of the Vu system can be traced back to the Vu Pro©
(1.0), which offered its users HD video on low bandwidth. With the
launch of version 2.0, came interoperability and the ability for Vu
systems to communicate with other third-party systems. Vu Telepresence
3.0, with enterprise capability and all of the benefits of its current
technology, can be deployed both on the Internet for
business-to-business communication, as well as on MPLS (multiprotocol
label switching) for private company networks for internal collaboration
"Through innovative engineering and research, Vu continues to
differentiate itself from the competition, by developing next generation
telepresence that is high-end, yet affordable," stated Devita Saraf (News - Alert),
Co-Founder of Vu Telepresence. While other providers may limit your use
and function with costly upgrades, Vu systems come standard with H
video quality (720p and 1080p); HD audio; H.323, SIP and XMPP
interoperability; customizable user interface; dual display support;
desktop collaboration; recording and archival functionality; and
multi-party conferencing (4+1).
With the unveiling of version 3.0, Vu plans to set its sights on
companies with existing video conferencing systems - plus those who are
new to the technology.
"Prior to today, our primary focus has been on the SMB market, with our
core business deriving from the consulting, finance, healthcare, legal
and education verticals. We are confident that with the upgrades we have
made, we will be able to venture out into new markets, where global
communication is the nucleus of day-to-day operations and success,"
