AVI-SPL continues to innovate within the collaborative environment with a video conferencing device that helps organizations protect the privacy of their meeting environments. This device, which we call Block ME™, and has been unveiled at this week’s InfoComm, is perhaps the simplest way you’ll find to protect conversations and content shared in your video conferencing meetings. (Read the press release on AVI-SPL’s new video conferencing privacy features.)
What Does Block Me Do?
Block ME enables the users in a meeting room to press a button and block any video calls from being launched or received in the room they are in. Press a button, and users stop video calls from being initiated or received. It’s just that simple. When you enable the device, you block related ports to and from your network, thus stopping unwanted calls from connecting.
How Does Block Me Work?
Block ME connects directly to your endpoint, and features two options: “on” and “off.” In the “on” position, Block ME stops the video conferencing endpoint from sending and receiving calls. In the “off” position, the lines are open.
Block ME Benefits
- Easily installed in any video conference room
- No special programming or control panel required
- No updates required to Block ME as video conferencing change or systems are updated
- Cannot be accessed remotely
Because your video endpoint is still powered on even when Block ME is enabled, it can still be monitored and managed by AVI-SPL’s remote VNOC and Help Desk.
AVI-SPL has designed Block ME to blend seamlessly into your environment. At a glance, you’ll know that if the device is engaged and whether calls are enabled or disabled.
If you plan on being at InfoComm 2013 in Orlando, stop by AVI-SPL booth #2381 June 12 -14 to see a live demonstration of Block ME.
