RADVISION Expands Video Solutions Portfolio for SMBs


December 16, 2011

RADVISION Ltd., a technology and end-to-end solution provider for unified visual communications has introduced a suite of video solutions aimed at small and mid-sized businesses.

Officials with RADVISION said that the company has added the RADVISION SCOPIA Elite MCU 5105 to its portfolio of innovative, standards-based video conferencing infrastructure.

Company officials said that the RADVISION SCOPIA XT1000 SMB Solution now also incorporates RADVISION SCOPIA Mobile, extending the features and benefits of enterprise-grade video to SMBs but at a fraction of the price of traditional, larger scale video systems.

"Video communications is becoming more prevalent in both our professional and personal lives. Businesses of all sizes should be taking advantage of the benefits of video conferencing as part of their overall collaboration strategies," said Rob Arnold, senior analyst at Frost & Sullivan, in a statement.

Arnold said that the foremost barriers to the adoption of video by SMBs have been cost and complexity. The new RADVISION solutions overcome both barriers by offering SMBs a cost-effective, easy-to-manage video communications solution that is enterprise-grade yet also user friendly, he added.

The SCOPIA Elite MCU 5105 is an intelligent, entry-level MCU that supports high definition audio, video and content-sharing.

The SCOPIA XT1000 SMB on the other hand is a unique video conferencing solution particularly suited to the communication requirements of SMBs.

"RADVISION is an established video conferencing veteran and innovator, and we understand how an SMB's needs differ from larger sized-businesses. While they may not have the budgets of more traditional video customers, they do have the same business goals and shouldn't have to compromise when it comes to technology," said Bob Romano, corporate vice president of global marketing and acting general manager of North America, RADVISION.

"As such, we are coming to market with solutions that are cost-effective and easy to deploy. This will include cloud-based video services so our customers can 'buy by the drink instead of the bottle,' so to speak. We're delighted to tap into this underserved market to deliver a high quality video experience traditionally enjoyed only by larger companies," said Romano.
