VideoVisit users can instantly create and attend video meetings from any Internet connected PC or Mac with a web cam.

Flexible APIs allowed Netpresence to quickly develop their VideoVisit services allowing end users the benefits of fast deployment, low initial investments, minimal support requirements and predictable costs.
SCOPIA Desktop’s H.264 Scalable Video Coding (SVC) and RADVISION’s NetSense bandwidth adaptation technology, providing high error resilience over Internet connections along with embedded firewall traversal make it ideal for cloud-based business quality services. Through the recently introduced SCOPIA Mobile, VideoVisit services will also be extended to mobile devices including the Apple iPad® 2, iPhone® 4 and Google Android devices in the near future.
The SCOPIA Elite MCU, with support for interconnecting the latest HD video conferencing, telepresence and mobile devices, hosts VideoVisit multi-party conferences. Utilizing the latest in DSP technology, SCOPIA Elite supports full 1080p HD along with RADVISION’s unique H.264 SVC implementation enabling full interoperability with standards-based systems, along with high error resilience for Internet connected users. SCOPIA Elite’s capacity model offers up to four times the capacity in resolutions lower than HD, allowing Netpresence to cost effectively deliver HD and standard video in a single platform. This functionality is implemented through SCOPIA Elite’s Advanced Telecommunications Computing Architecture (ATCA) for the stringent uptime and supportability requirements of cloud-based services.
Netpresence utilizes RADVISION’s patented distributed multi-party conferencing architecture where conferencing components are strategically distributed throughout the Internet. SCOPIA iVIEW Management software provides the intelligence for the distributed service and virtualizes conferencing capabilities. This deployment model allows Netpresence to benefit from redundancy, network traffic optimization, resource management along with very high scalability for the cloud-based service. iVIEW also offers a comprehensive API enabling Netpresence to implement an operator free, self-service web portal for users to easily set up ad-hoc and scheduled meetings.
