Radvision Extends Conferencing Data to the iPad

Radvision Ltd., which develops solutions for unified visual communications including video network infrastructures, announced enhancements to its Scopia system that will extend video conferencing data collaboration to Apple iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch mobile devices. The new features provide interoperability with video conferencing systems for sharing data using H.239 protocols.

Radvision Ltd., which develops solutions for unified visual communications including video network infrastructures, announced enhancements to its Scopia system that will extend video conferencing data collaboration to Apple iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch mobile devices. The new features provide interoperability with video conferencing systems for sharing data using H.239 protocols.

"The H.239 standard is the general method used in video conferencing for data collaboration. H.239 is widely deployed amongst video conferencing vendors and provides the benefits of interoperability with different systems," said Yair Wiener, chief technology office for Radvision. "However, H.239 by itself has limitations in its data collaboration features. The new Scopia offers the best of both worlds. On the one hand, with H.239, Scopia provides interoperability with the majority of video conferencing systems in the market. On the other, Scopia provides advanced data collaboration features and connectivity to devices that H.239 alone doesn't offer."

Radvision's new Scopia data collaboration provides interoperable H.239-based data collaboration from the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch. With this capability, materials such as presentations, spreadsheets, documents, and images that are shared in a video conference can be viewed on Apple's mobile devices. The capability will be made available in Radvision's Scopia Mobile product, a free application extending the Scopia conferencing solution to the latest generation of mobile devices, according to the company.

Scopia's other data collaboration features give users the ability to immediately review previously shared data. Conference participants can now review information and catch up if they arrived late to a meeting or want to spend additional time on critical points in material presented. Preview images of materials already presented provide a quick way to jump back to sections of documents. For example, if a conference participant wanted to view an agenda slide in a presentation that was delivered when the meeting first started, they can easily navigate back to that particular slide, while the conference leader continues the presentation for the other participants.
