On this final day at InfoComm 2017, AVI-SPL has announced the addition of the Skype Integrated Meeting Service and Integrated Cloud Voice Service to its workplace collaboration offerings. For our customers, this means they can expand their Skype for Business experience to all their collaboration spaces. Briefly, here is what organizations can expect when we deliver these services:
Integrated Meeting Service: This cloud-ready solution unifies audio, video and web conferencing into a single platform and brings PSTN dial-in conferencing into meeting rooms of all sizes.
Integrated Cloud Voice Service: Helps manage an organization’s Skype for Business Cloud PBX and fully integrates audio, video, and web conferencing services complete with PSTN dial-in capabilities.
At AVI-SPL, we take pride in being the meeting experts. Our clients expect the user-friendly experiences that we tell them is possible, and we’re one of the only Skype for Business partners that focuses on bringing AV, voice, and video together to create that experience. Year after year, we’re ranked the number one integrator among the SCN Top 50 — who better to handle your next project?
The AVI-SPL team is proud of its ability to be the one source companies and organizations of all types need for better collaboration and communication experiences. That ability ranges from consulting with our clients, engineering and deploying systems, and supporting rooms and technology with our managed services.
Those managed services just got better with the release of our Unify ME Symphony Platform 4.1, which has new features that we’re showcasing each day at InfoComm 2017. As noted by Frost & Sullivan, Symphony is the heart of our managed video conferencing services. But Symphony does much more than remotely manage video conferences.
With Symphony, we monitor and manage all of the AV, video conferencing and unified communications systems of an organization, and track key metrics like room utilization, device usage, meeting modes, and real-time quality of the user experience.
With Symphony 4.1, we have a host of improved features and new capabilities:
- Monitoring of all AV devices connected through a Crestron controller
- Unified portal and user experience for scheduling VMR meetings and for monitoring meetings, rooms, and devices
- Recording and streaming of video meetings
- Set monitoring blackout periods cascaded from account to location to device
- Microsoft Outlook add-in to create new Unify ME meeting
Throughout each day at InfoComm, our experts will be at our booth delivering live demonstrations of the new features in our Unify ME Symphony 4.1 monitoring and management platform. If you plan on being at InfoComm, we look forward to seeing you there and showing you how much Symphony can benefit your organization. Read the press release about this announcement. >
