Tata Communications has launched jamvee conferencing, a multi-device compatible cloud-based video conferencing service that allows anyone to take part in a video meeting from any location via a desktop computer, laptop, tablet, smartphone or a dedicated Telepresence room.
The company claims that Jamvee is delivered through the world's only fibre optic cable ring around the globe. The company adds that the global video conferencing tool for enterprises makes video conferencing, both within and between companies as easy as making a traditional audio conferencing call.
Tata Communications aims to overcome interoperability issues that persists in video conferencing, with the help of a far reaching undersea cable network.
John Hayduk, Tata Communications, President and CTO, says, "Lack of interoperability, consistency of experience per location, complicated price plans and the need for third-party reservations have stood in the way of truly global enterprise collaboration. Jamvee overcomes these barriers by making video conferences easy and on-demand, while seamlessly bringing together all video platforms, room systems and endpoints in a simple, as-you-need it and elastic pre-packaged service. It's so easy to use, instant and affordable. It's what enterprises have been asking for."
The jamvee software application will be made available for Windows, Mac OSX, iOS and Android platforms, somewhere around August 2013. Users of Microsoft's Lync and other video conferencing softwares, as well as those with access to standard video conferencing systems such as Immersive Telepresence, can also meet using jamvee. The company says that up to 46 participants can join each conference with a touch of a button.
Jamvee works like any other audio conference tool - you Participants can then use any existing video system or Telepresence room that they have access to, or they simply download the free jamvee app from jamvee portal or respective, apps stores.
