SCOPIA XT Telepresence Platform Offers Cost-Effective and Flexible Deployment Approach

ORLANDO, Fla. & TEL AVIV, Israel
, Jun 15, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- RADVISION(R) Ltd., a leading technology and end-to-end solution provider for unified visual communications, today announced that at InfoComm, RADVISION will be demonstrating its new immersive SCOPIA(R) XT Telepresence Platform, the latest addition to RADVISION's innovative SCOPIA video conferencing portfolio. The SCOPIA XT Telepresence Platform delivers an immersive telepresence experience customizable to the unique requirements of individual rooms and customer needs..

Installed and configured by RADVISION's worldwide network of channel partners, the SCOPIA XT Telepresence Platform provides a cost-effective and highly flexible approach, enabling partners to meet the unique needs of each customer deployment. With a RADVISION partner, customers can define the installation and furnishings that best fit within their conference room and budgets to deliver a distinct customized telepresence experience.

"The new SCOPIA XT Telepresence Platform provides a unique opportunity for our partners to deliver an exceptional immersive telepresence experience to their customers at a fraction of what our competitors charge," said Roberto Giamagli, General Manager, Video Business Unit for RADVISION. "The RADVISION approach provides significant flexibility to deliver a fully immersive telepresence experience despite the budgetary constraints faced by most businesses today."

The SCOPIA XT Telepresence Platform creates a lifelike experience replicating the feeling of meeting in-person by incorporating state-of-the-art technology. The platform supports multi-stream, full HD 1080p video, 48 kHz full band audio and 1080p 30fps PC data sharing. Additionally, the system incorporates the highly intuitive Apple iPad Multi-Touch control application, virtually eliminating the learning curve for participating in a telepresence session. First-time users can initiate calls, control their telepresence system and moderate meetings without any training or introduction. Because the iPad controller is wireless, it also eliminates the conference room clutter provided with other control devices.

When coupled with the SCOPIA Elite MCU, the new SCOPIA XT Telepresence Platform delivers the most interoperable, multi-vendor, multi-stream telepresence conferencing solution in the market. Unmatched interoperability with telepresence systems from Cisco/ Tandberg, Logitech/ LifeSize, and Polycom, as well as with any standards-based video conferencing system for full video, audio and data collaboration is provided through this combination.

"RADVISION's Telepresence Platform eliminates several of the barriers customers have with deployment including interoperability, inflexible configurations and high initial investments," said Andrew W. Davis, Senior Analyst and Partner at Wainhouse Research. "We believe that today, the telepresence market segment is underpenetrated due to these constraints. This alternative, components-based approach will be highly attractive to integrators because of its powerful setup tools -- and to end customers because of its interoperability, flexibility and price. We anticipate that this approach to immersive telepresence will help RADVISION to capture and grow the market."

Pricing and Availability

RADVISION's new SCOPIA XT Telepresence Platform will be available worldwide this month for under $65,000.

The new SCOPIA XT Telepresence Platform along with the Apple iPad control application will be demonstrated in RADVISION'S booth (no. 1883) in the Conferencing Pavilion at InfoComm in Orlando, June 15-17. RADVISION will also feature other SCOPIA solutions including HD desktop video conferencing, telepresence interoperability with Microsoft Lync and enterprise-grade mobile video conferencing allowing iPhone and iPad users to connect with full video, audio and data to the nearly 2 million installed standards-based video conferencing and telepresence systems worldwide.
