Cyviz Simplifies the Use of Skype for Business in Traditional Video Conferencing Environments

November 10, 2015 | Telepresence Options


The company will demonstrate the more reliable and intuitive interface at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2015 in Barcelona

STAVANGER, Norway--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cyviz, a leader in visual collaboration and command and control systems, today announced that the company has developed a more intuitive, user-friendly way to incorporate the use of Microsoft's Skype for Business (formerly Lync) in traditional video conferencing environments. The company will be demonstrating this new capability at this year's Gartner Symposium/ITxpo in Barcelona, November 8-12th in booth #109.

"Current room solutions for Skype for Business have flaws related to interoperability, security, ad-hoc scenarios and user-friendliness," commented Eirik Simonsen, COO, Cyviz. "With our new solution, a Cyviz system offers end-users full interoperability with traditional video endpoints and Microsoft Skype for Business clients, plus support for multiple participants on both incoming and outgoing calls. By utilizing state of the art technology we have create the best 'Lync room' without using Lync."

The new features will work seamlessly with traditional video conferencing equipment from Cisco and Polycom and include the following:

  • Full interoperability with traditional video endpoints and Microsoft SfB
  • Support for multiple participants, both for incoming and outgoing calls
  • An intuitive touch interface which replaces PIN-codes used to control VMR meetings
  • Full integration with MS Exchange for room booking
  • Uses MS AD as the source for phonebook with display of title, location and photo

Adding a Cyviz Touch Controller with VMR integration will convert traditional video conference end-points into full fledged Microsoft compliant collaboration rooms.

The company will be demonstrating its entire suite of software at The Gartner Symposium in Barcelona, Spain on November 8-12th in booth #109.
