Reliable and highly scalable visual communication infrastructure solutions for enterprise and service provider environments, RADVISION’s SCOPIA conferencing platforms offer the industry’s most technologically advanced and easy-to-use carrier-grade multipoint infrastructure for real-time conferencing over any network, protocol and device. Easy to use plug and play functionality minimizes initial setup time, and offers unmatched flexibility. High Definition (HD) is standard on each system, enabling High Definition at 720p, H.264 with up to 30 frames per second of perfect quality video.
The SCOPIA conferencing platform is available in two custom configurable chassis sizes. All SCOPIA blades are interchangeable between the chassis types.
SCOPIA Conferencing Platform Highlights
SCOPIA configurable conferencing platforms are designed with reliability in mind. The SCOPIA 400 chassis provides built-in, dual redundant power supplies with dual power feeds. Additionally, the SCOPIA 1000 chassis provides a redundant, built-in Ethernet backplane and hot-swappable fans. All SCOPIA blades are hot-swappable so that they can be replaced without turning the system off for guaranteed uptime.
SCOPIA configurable conferencing platforms scale from 4 slots on the SCOPIA 400 chassis, to 18 slots for function blades on the SCOPIA 1000 chassis. This range ensures highly scalable deployments, as well as investment protection as you grow.
With the SCOPIA configurable conferencing platforms, high definition and standard definition room systems, desktops, 3G mobile video, and audio conferencing are supported on a broad range of networks. This capability provides unmatched flexibility in a single system.
The SCOPIA configurable conferencing platforms deliver optimized capacity so that users receive maximum value for their investment. Optimized capacity provides each conferencing application - high definition room systems, standard definition room systems, desktops, and audio - the highest capacity at the most effective cost per port. Processing power is efficiently utilized based on the endpoint’s specific requirements.
Advanced Video Processing
Video transcoding and rate matching allows each user to connect to the conference at the capabilities available to them. This enables users to enjoy the best audio and video quality supported by their endpoint and network – whether it is high definition, standard definition, or desktops on any network.
Ease of Use
The SCOPIA configurable conferencing platforms make video conferencing easy for administrators and users. Administrators enjoy out-of-box, plug and play functionality that minimizes initial setup time. Users easily control the conference from the endpoint’s remote control.
Video auto attendant enables users to easily create and attend conferences - even when conferences are in a distributed environment across multiple MCUs.
