“ClearOne has a balanced approach to the future of video collaboration and the AV industry as a whole,” said David Moss, ClearOne’s Vice President of Video Collaboration Products and Services. “Our complete line of video collaboration solutions spans mobile, desktop, group, and infrastructure; allowing customers to deploy locally or within the cloud. With these flexible options and a feature set far beyond competing solutions, every customer whether a small business or a large enterprise can easily— and more importantly afford to— deploy and scale video collaboration.”
Video as a Service (VaaS)
Video as a Service (VaaS)– ClearOne’s Spontania cloud service empowers customers to deploy video collaboration without the heavy burden of expensive infrastructure. It also allows service providers and partners to expand their offerings by deploying the technology within their own networks, building on ClearOne technology to further their current solutions and offerings as either a SaaS or PaaS model.
For customers who desire an on-premise infrastructure solution, ClearOne now provides COLLABORATE® Control, a single-unit infrastructure server that will serve the needs of both SMBs and enterprise customers hoping to expand locations. The heavy burden of adding video collaboration pervasively has always been the cost of expensive infrastructure solutions. COLLABORATE Control provides the infrastructure component at an unbelievably low price, including directory services, firewall traversal, 24 port MCU, H.323 gatekeeper, SIP registrar, license server, call control, and a full management system.
Desktop and Mobile
