Pixavi Showcases Video Powered Mobile Device Management

BARCELONA, Spain, Mobile World Congress, February 26, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- It has never been easier to manage your mobile device and at the same time connect these same devices via live High Definition video communication. With WebRTC and Pixavi's new Video powered mobile device management technology it all becomes possible.

Pixavi showcases a Cloud service that Bridges the gap between unified communication and Mobile device management. The Hostedmobiles.com service enables mobile users to enjoy full HD video conferencing and at the same time benefit from a fully fledged mobile device management system. Anyone with a web browser can start communicating with mobile devices via high quality audio and video.

(Photo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130226/599639 ) Mobile device management has become a mandatory service for companies that want to deploy BYOD (Bring your own device) policies within the enterprise. The same enterprises also have a strong need for adding rich communication abilities to these same devices. Pixavi is combining these two demands into one cloud service that offers an innovative new perspective on real time communication and mobile device management. Hosted by Amazon infrastructure, the service is highly available, scalable and performance centric and with a global footprint.

The Hostedmobiles alpha-level test ride now available on http://www.hostedmobiles.com comes with a series of Mobile Device Management features and the will soon get the ability to host web conferences between mobile users and computers running a standard web browser without the need of a plugin.Transcoding from H.264 to WebM and vise versa.

"Today's smartphones and tablets include high end video and audio capabilities that are just waiting to be fully utilized by the software. People are bringing their own devices to work and want to utilize rich communication tools at work as they do at home. The requirement for a management system quickly arises among IT managers when hundreds and thousands of workers start showing up at work with their devices and wants to connect to the enterprise networks and connect to colleagues and coworkers around the world via high quality audio and video. We see absolutely no reason why these two worlds should be managed from two different systems. Pixavi clearly demonstrates that mobile device management can and should be integrated with management Unified Communications." Said Thomas Zaubi, Sales Manager in Pixavi.

"Video communication has historically been associated a range of challenges in order to work properly. These challenges include problems with Interoperability, ease of use, firewall traversal and quality of service to name a few. The result has been lack of trust by end users and network operators. With the launch of the new WebRTC standard now recently added to Chrome and Firefox browsers, the web browser is suddenly a fully fledged HD video conferencing endpoint. WebRTC works without plugins and users can connect to each others independent of the platform and OS they are on" Said Christian Rokseth, CEO of Pixavi "During MWC we are launching a trial of the Alpha version of the service in order to collect user feedback in the process forward. We want to ensure that our future customers have a say in the path forward. We expect to release the final version towards the end of 2013" Mr Rokseth continued.
