Blue Jeans Network has provided us with some great interoperable video collaboration services, but now it’s taking its cloud-based offering to the next level. However, its new “Room to Remote” conferencing offering includes several new features designed to bring new standards to the video conferencing market.
This includes a new combination of video and content with dual HD screens and a layout control slider, letting each participant find the right balance between video and content according to their needs.
Furthermore, due to increased demand for video conferencing on mobile devices, Blue Jeans has unveiled a new mobile application for iPad and iPhone (News - Alert). This will allow mobile users to connect to the same quality video chats and conferences as those from any other device, keeping them connected at their convenience from wherever they are.
There’s also the new partnership with Tely Labs. With this alliance, Blue Jeans can help turn any meeting room into an HD vide conference room, with access from the tlyHD Enterprise Edition. It can connect to any flat screen TV, making any conference room video-enabled for just around $1,000.
"Over the last year as the service has grown dramatically, we have seen a decidedly changing landscape at both the room and the remote end of the spectrum," said Stu Aaron, chief commercial officer for Blue Jeans Network, in a statement. "The hallmark of our success has always been connecting business meeting participants in conference rooms with those that can not be in them. Now with reasonably priced solutions for secondary conference rooms and fully featured mobile options for telecommuters and travelers, we are dramatically expanding the reach of our service to meet our customers' needs. There are over 50 million secondary conference rooms and almost 100 million iPads worldwide that now have the option to connect to the Blue Jeans network.”
The company has done an excellent job in bringing video communication and collaboration to all who need it (and taking the occasional shot at Yahoo in the process), but this will help bring its suite to even more users on more devices, in more rooms and at more locations. Users can now share content via video with more ease and convenience for everyone, bringing an interactive experience to people around the globe.
