RADVISION® Ltd announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named the RADVISION® SCOPIA® Video Gateway for Microsoft Lync 2010 as a recipient of a 2010 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award. The SCOPIA Video Gateway for Microsoft Lync allows people to use standards-based video and telepresence systems, such as those from Cisco/Tandberg, Logitech/LifeSize and Polycom, within a Lync unified communications (UC) environment. This approach helps provide users with flexibility and choice of which visual communications systems they use and does not compromise the Lync desktop user experience.
The SCOPIA Video Gateway for Microsoft Lync helps provide a cost-effective and easily deployable solution as it does not require large-scale software or firmware upgrades on currently deployed video conferencing systems when used with Microsoft Lync. This gateway technique provides connectivity between the two environments and allows any H.323 video conferencing system to register to the Microsoft Lync Server 2010 and act like a native Lync client. Its presence will display in the Lync contact list including offline, available or in a call, and calls can be made to the video system in HD quality using the familiar click-to-call Lync user interface.
“We’re delighted to receive this award from the team at TMC,” said Teddy Flatau, Vice President of Products for RADVISION. “RADVISION developed the SCOPIA Video Gateway for Microsoft Lync as a way to help customers with existing video deployments maximize the return on their existing investments. The gateway solution that we offer helps enable them to do this, whereas a native video solution doesn’t provide interoperability to the vast majority of the estimated two million video conferencing systems deployed and in use today. Our gateway bridges the worlds of traditional video and emerging unified communications, and we’ll continue delivering innovative solutions for our customers investing in UC.”
“RADVISION was chosen to receive a 2010 Product of the Year Award for creating exceptional advancements in unified video communications,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “The SCOPIA Video Gateway for Microsoft Lync has shown benefits for its customers and provides ROI for the companies that use it. Congratulations to the entire team at RADVISION. I look forward to more innovative solutions from them in the coming year.”
