It seems like everyone these days has an application.
So it was only a matter of time until one of the video conferencing vendors out there would come out with an application of its own.
Well, it’s our pleasure to be the vendor with this news – video conferencing? There’s an app for that!
Yes, we’ve just released our SCOPIA Mobile app – an iPhone/Blackberry application that can essentially control our SCOPIA line of products.
As someone who has been working for a video conferencing company for over a decade, I can tell you this – people simply don’t remember, know or even care about the controls of our conferencing products. Not because they wouldn’t want to use it, but because they don’t really know it’s there.
For instance, pressing “0″ during a conference on our SCOPIA Elite will allow you to change the layout, which I have found to be a very useful feature. There are other such gems hidden within the built-in menus of the MCU – and they’re all easy to use, simple and available. But they are not used – at least not nearly enough as we’d like them to.
So now, by just downloading SCOPIA Mobile for free from the relevant application store, you’ll have all that at the tip of your fingers, in a place that is easy to reach and operate.
And if you’re interested in more information about this application and what it does (with several screen shots and videos), may I suggest Vince Chavy’s post over at the Video Over Enterprise blog, which outlines what SCOPIA Mobile is good for?
