In recent posts we’ve explored LifeSize’s newly updated UVC platform which brings together a portfolio of video communication tools in one simple interface. To recap, UVC is a flexible, scalable platform for a number of video conferencing tools including bridging, HD video calls, recording and transit. With UVC you purchase as many licenses as you require, and you can add and remove applications or increase the number of ports as and when you need to. It’s a cost effective way for any business to benefit from video collaboration technology at a price and entry level that suits their requirements.
We’ve already looked at three of the applications available for UVC – Video Center, Manager and Transit. In this post we’ll look at the remaining applications – Multipoint, Access, Video Engine and Capacity Planner.
Multipoint is a flexible way for you to deploy multiparty video conferencing using a number of devices, including LifeSize room systems, computers, laptops, smartphones and tablets. The video resolution intelligently adapts to meet the needs of your device, and you can purchase just a single port or as many as you need.
Access is a standards-based gatekeeper that manages intelligent routing and control of your H.323 video communications. Access has many useful features including a simplified dialling process and administrative control over your network’s bandwidth. Access simplifies the management of your voice, video and data conferencing.
UVC Video Engine
If you already use Microsoft Lync then Video Engine is an essential tool as it integrates with Lync to give you instant access to your contacts lists, making it easy to set up a video conference. Video Engine also gives you 220p high definition video, 4-way calls and push presence.
UVC Capacity Planner
The new Capacity Planner tool is a straightforward way for you to monitor all your video networks and allocate resources accordingly. The slider tools lets you assign resources to suit your needs and the clear display shows you your CPU and RAM usage so you can ensure you don’t overload your system. It’s a great way to set your networks up exactly the way you want them, and you can change your settings whenever you need to.
