The Year Ahead - with RADVISION's Bob Romano

-- TMCnet recently asked some of the leading lights in the industry for their thoughts about 2011 and what's in store for the year ahead.

Here's what Bob Romano, vice president of corporate marketing at RADVISION, had to say.

What was your company's greatest achievement in 2011?

Romano: Overall, 2011 was a big year for RADVISION. We successfully expanded our product portfolio to enhance our network solutions with a full line of videoconferencing clients including desktop, room and immersive telepresence systems. But one of our most exciting milestones was being the first company to publicly launch a standards-based enterprise-grade HD videoconferencing application for mobile devices - SCOPIA Mobile v3.

Mobile video is really heating up, and our mobile app is the most feature-rich in the market. SCOPIA Mobile is unique because it is fully interoperable with standards-based videoconferencing, allowing voice, video and data collaboration with telepresence and room systems. It also has unique capabilities like our slider feature, which allows each user to review previously presented content without interrupting the call. And it is simple to use with one-touch click-to-join capabilities, full moderation capabilities, and great use of Apple's Multi-touch platform.  

Also exciting is our engagement with Microsoft. Video is a key component to any organization's unified communications strategy, and while video is part of the Lync platform, it doesn't natively interoperate with existing videoconferencing deployments. RADVISION and Microsoft have teamed to offer the SCOPIA Video Gateway for Microsoft Lync, which provides seamless interoperability between the two environments. The SCOPIA Video Gateway became generally available last year and is the first and only video gateway qualified for Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2, with Lync qualification right around the corner. We're excited to offer investment protection for the more than two million standards-based video endpoints deployed in the market today.
