We are excited to announce two significant enhancements to FuzeBox based on frequent customer requests.
Telepresence Connect Supports Content Sharing
First, we are enhancing our Telepresence Connect feature to include support for the H.239 content-sharing protocol. You can already connect traditional, standards-based telepresence and video conferencing systems from vendors such as Cisco, Polycom, LifeSize, Radvision (Avaya), etc. in HD video calls via Fuze. Now Fuzers can also easily share content in HD with people using these systems.
FuzeBox Telepresence Connect now allows you to share content with traditional video conferencing and telepresence systems, such as this Cisco Telepresence device, during a Fuze Meeting.
Why is this important? Many of our customers have investments in traditional video conferencing systems and want to continue using them in a cost-effective way as they migrate to Fuze. The Telepresence Connect capability allows them to do just that as they extend Fuze’s video, voice and content collaboration to more desktops, mobile devices and rooms across their organizations. You can start using FuzeBox today for free at www.fuze.com, or contact Fuze Sales to learn more about the Telepresence Connect service.
Admin Console Gets Deeper Analytics and Provisioning Controls
FuzeBox is designed for users, but also includes the important security and controls required by enterprise IT departments. The second enhancement includes improved analytics and provisioning capabilities, giving IT administrators greater visibility into their company’s use of Fuze and making it easier to add, remove and manage users. Here is a snapshot of the updated Admin Console features developed based on feedback from IT administrators (Note: Admin Console included with Fuze Enterprise agreements):
