Instant collaboration

Enabled by cloud managed endpoint for huddle spaces, powered by Tely, coupled with AVI-SPL’s other collaborative cloud services. There is no need to invest in backend infrastructure, nor roadmap to evolve, or staff to maintain.

AVI-SPL will deliver a fully managed huddle space solution with a single touch to join scheduled meetings, access AVI-SPL’s “Unify ME” conferencing service, or other high quality VMR’s, and share content with this cloud-based, scalable platform.

Meeting broadcasting and recording

Live stream high quality video to any device, or record and share directly from video conferencing endpoints, Unify ME VMR, and other virtual meeting rooms with an agile cloud solution that can link to new and existing equipment.

Proactive monitoring of collaboration spaces and devices with Symphony

Powered by AVI-SPL, the leading AV integrator is releasing its first self-service module of its monitoring platform, Symphony. With a sleek, easy-to-use dashboard, Symphony allows end users, even those in mixed vendor environments, to collect valuable business intelligence regarding their collaboration initiatives through usage data and system analytics, such as room/device usage and video quality, to ensure better outcomes for every meeting.

Microsoft integration
