Outlook Plugin for Video Conference Scheduling to be Unveiled at InfoComm 2014

June 12, 2014 | Telepresence Options


Renovo Software will introduce a new video conference scheduling and automation plugin for Microsoft Outlook at the 2014 InfoComm Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Next week, at the 2014 InfoComm Conference, Renovo will reveal an Outlook plugin designed to allow users to quickly schedule video conferences in the same basic way meetings are scheduled. Based on Renovo's highly robust, technology-neutral Video Scheduler platform, the Renovo Outlook plugin offers simple video conference scheduling options integrated directly into the Microsoft Outlook toolbar.

"Simplifying video collaboration without compromising control has been our goal for over a decade," said Ted Nafzger, Video Scheduler sales manager at Renovo Software. "This plugin expands that reputation by allowing video conferences to be scheduled and automated by end users through the same, familiar Outlook interface they already use every day."

The plugin combines simplicity with functionality by allowing administrators to pre-configure levels of control for different users. Video can be enabled or disabled on single instances or entire series of meetings with the touch of a button. Adding participants, rooms, endpoints, and desktop/mobile video clients is as easy as adding an email recipient. Additional options for Outlook meetings enabled via Renovo's plugin include:

  • automatic bridge selection
  • recording
  • streaming
  • continuous presence layout
  • lecture mode
  • HD vs. SD control
  • multipoint override
  • dial in/out (per endpoint)
  • and bitrate (per endpoint)

Best of all, participants and options can be added, removed, or modified later on-the-fly. Renovo's plugin operates seamlessly with their Video Scheduler platform that is already utilized by many of the largest video conferencing networks in the world including over half of the statewide networks in the United States. Demonstrations of the plugin will be held next week at booth N1667 at the InfoComm Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.
