The SCOPIA Video Gateway for Microsoft Lync, a Radvision Ltd. product, won Microsoft qualification for video interoperability with Microsoft Lync 2010 and Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2. As such, the gateway is qualified as a video solution for Microsoft unified communications (UC) solutions.
Radvision says its SCOPIA Video Gateway allows Microsoft Lync 2010 and Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 users to connect to standards-based HD video conferencing systems, telepresence rooms or video infrastructure. It also offers such features as presence and click-to-call capabilities through the Lync and Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 interface. Gateway deployments can grow from a small workgroup to an entire enterprise with unlimited scalability and dynamic resource allocation.
Explains Kirk Gregersen, general manager/Lync Marketing at Microsoft, “Microsoft Lync allows workers to communicate virtually anytime, anywhere with an Internet connection and browser – including with standards-based video systems and telepresence suites.
The SCOPIA Video Gateway can scale from being an entry-level option to working within large enterprises and service providers that offer multi-tenant, cloud-based UC services. Presence information is displayed in the contact list for any standards-based video-conferencing system and telepresence room, enabling intuitive click-to-call capabilities.
