Pexip Breaks the Barriers to Large Scale Enterprise-Wide Video Conferencing
Ex-Tandberg Executives and Engineers Simplify Video Conferencing and Deliver First Enterprise-Quality Distributed Conferencing Software, Enabling Any Number of Users on Video, Voice and Mobile
ORLANDO, Fla., Jun 12, 2013 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- (InfoComm 2013 booth #2167) - Pexip today announced a new approach to collaboration and unified communication by introducing Pexip Infinity, an affordable, virtualized, simple solution to video conferencing on any device.
Pexip Infinity is a scalable software platform providing personal meeting rooms for any number of users on video, voice and mobile. Pexip's innovative and flexible software breaks down the barriers to mass video conferencing - hardware costs and expensive bandwidth - to provide a high-quality video experience to all employees, regardless of company size and employee location.
"Software-based solutions, cloud services and growing virtualization in video conferencing are pushing out expensive fixed capacity infrastructure solutions and opening up the floodgates of adoption, making videoconferencing affordable and scalable for all, including desktop and mobile users," said Roopam Jain, industry director, Unified Communications and Collaboration, Frost & Sullivan. "The industry has been waiting for a solution like Pexip Infinity."
Delivering Enterprise-Quality Virtual Meeting Rooms With the desire of employees to work anywhere, anytime, coupled with the industry trend of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), companies of all sizes are reconsidering the way IT is purchased, managed and delivered.
Key benefits include:
-- Interoperable, business-quality video conferencing - working with the existing installed base of business video endpoints and adding unsurpassed compatibility with mobile and software-based clients such as Microsoft Lync and WebRTC.
-- A simple to deploy and manage software platform - using commodity x86-based servers, Pexip Infinity is deployed and managed using standard IT and virtualization tools.
-- A scalable, cost-efficient distributed conferencing system - which delivers on five key pillars - software-only, virtualized, distributed, interoperable and flexible licensing. Pexip Infinity is the only solution that encompasses all five pillars necessary for pervasive conferencing.
-- Flexible and differentiated licensing models - customers can pay as they go and pay as they grow - providing the ability to increase or decrease conferencing capacity, adjusting to the changing needs of organizations.
Additionally, Pexip is focused on creating an inclusive relationship with channel partners, and offering solutions that complement their current portfolio, are simple to deploy and support a recurring revenue stream.
"The Pexip team is at the forefront of innovation in video collaboration. We understand the challenges companies face deploying video communications to every employee, and we are passionate about solving them," said Simen Teigre, chief executive officer and co-founder, Pexip. "Pexip Infinity is the result of our team's unique drive to deliver a revolutionary product that enables simple, affordable and high-quality video meetings for everyone."
What the Industry is Saying Michael Brandofino, executive vice president, Video and UC, AVI-SPL "The video industry has seen a tremendous influx of devices that are capable of supporting video communications, but, to date, it has lacked a viable option for cost effective, high quality and scalable solutions. The Pexip Infinity solution fills that gap in the video space by addressing the need for a multi-tenant, virtualized software platform that can scale to support large volumes of devices in an affordable way. No longer is quality sacrificed for scale."
Walead Anwar, UC specialist, Meridian IT Group "The Pexip solution is very attractive as it is the first solution that delivers a rich HD video conferencing experience in an affordable and efficient manner to literally thousands of concurrent users. Pexip's attractive price model enables companies to eliminate their Web meeting accounts and maximize their virtual server investments."
Knut Bentzen, group sales director, Viju "The addition of Pexip in our services portfolio provides us with advanced capabilities to deliver improved large-scale personal video communication deployments. Pexip removes the barriers associated with mass deployment of video communications in an affordable and simple way. In fact, it's so simple we gained commitment from our first customer in the UK before the product was officially launched to market."
Michael Stanton-Jones, product manager, Communications and Collaboration, Vodafone Group Enterprise "Pexip Infinity is simple to implement (our lab test took 30 minutes from setup to deployment), scalable across geographies and company size, and it is easy to manage from a simple to use interface. It offers a flexible commercial model, scalable port count and no allegiance to any current manufacturer or standard, while running on a cloud platform. For those who still argue the difference of hardware versus software, then take a moment to experience the quality of Pexip Infinity first-hand, and your debate will likely end."
General Availability Pexip Infinity will be generally available on September 1, 2013.
