Business Class Videoconferencing Gets More Affordable with AVer's New Sub-$1,000 Solution
No one likes choosing between quality and affordability. Unfortunately, that has been the historic dynamic in the videoconferencing world. In the mid 2000's the choice was basically between a $10k+ room system, or low quality Skype. Although new cloud and software solutions over the past few years have increased the options for desktop and DIY solutions, full featured room systems still tend to be pricey.
AVer's new EVC100 is a no-compromise solution for users seeking a powerful, quality, room system that is affordable for small business. The standards-based codec speaks the same languages (H.323 and SIP) as those $10k systems, which means you can immediately place calls with your video enabled partners or clients. It will also will interoperate natively with existing video infrastructure you may have, providing an easy way to expand your existing video environment into new locations.
As full featured solutions continue to drop in price, and increase usability, the wave of videoconferencing adoption is bound to continue growing. With this new product, those seeking to enjoy the benefits of video, without breaking the budget, are no longer limited to creative home-built solutions. For under $1k they can have a complete, fully featured, 720p room system, out of the box and ready to go.
