FuzeBox Announces Next-generation Fuze Meeting for iPad Devices

February 21, 2012

Customers will now be able to download the next generation of FuzeBox’s Fuze Meeting solution at Apple's App Store. Fuze Meeting purportedly converts iPads into telepresence devices, enabling communication and collaboration for business customers who don’t want to worry about distance, device compatibility, and location limitations any more. The solution is available in nine languages in over 124 countries.

The company announced that Fuze Telepresence Connect technology will now be available as a cloud-based hosted solution for iPad devices, Macs, PCs as well as other mobile devices which support connections between Fuze sessions and other telepresence systems without the need for any on-site equipment.

In a release, FuzeBox CEO Jeff Cavins, said, "Businesses are adopting iPads at an unparalleled rate, and are becoming an ideal platform for mobile video conferencing, collaboration and extending the capabilities of dedicated telepresence systems. Our new version of Fuze Meeting is monumental for enterprises that rely on telepresence and real-time collaboration to drive their businesses forward."

The new cloud-based Fuze Hosted Telepresence Connect does not require users to be present in boardroom and dedicated telepresence suites to participate in multi-party, HD video conferences. The cloud-based service option of the FuzeBox enables remote video routing via the Internet, providing users with enhanced experience over an easy web-based interface.

Fuze Hosted Telepresence Connect breaks down the complexities of incompatibility seen in traditional telepresence systems and offers users with substantial savings in cost.

Jeff Cavins said, "Our new hosted cloud-based deployment is reshaping telepresence, moving it outside the enterprise walls and into the mainstream where today's workforce resides. With no added upfront expense and no IT support required, our solution allows telepresence users to leverage all their existing equipment, including their investments in computers and mobile devices."

Keeping in mind different enterprise needs, the Fuze Telepresence Connect solution can be used as an on- premise service operating via a simple appliance deployed over the customer's network.
