Blue Jeans Networks Launches New Features For Mobile, HD Videoconferencing
Blue Jeans Networks is expanding its cloud-based videoconferencing solutions to include new capabilities for content sharing, HD video and hosting meetings from mobile devices, the Mountain View, Calif.-based company said Wednesday.
This new package of features, dubbed "Room to Remote," is aimed at meeting what Blue Jeans says is a surge in demand for on-the-go, more affordable, and more integrated video-collaboration solutions, explained Stu Aaron, chief commercial officer at Blue Jeans.
"We are starting to see a mass proliferation of mobile devices within our business customers," Aaron told CRN. "We are seeing customers that have access to these tablets, in particular, and smartphones more generally that want to use these devices to join meetings."
To align with this trend, Blue Jeans rolled out Wednesday a mobile app for iOS devices that will let users perform HD videoconferencing directly from their iPads and iPhones. While Blue Jeans users previously had the option of tapping into the company's services from mobile devices, the new iOS app affords them more robust features for bi-directional content sharing and more, Aaron said.
