Radvision's Scopia Now Part of Momentum's UC Platform

27 Feb 2013

Momentum, a provider of hosted PBX, announces that its cloud-based unified communications (UC) platform now includes a Scopia-powered video technology. Avaya's Radvision Scopia is embedded into Momentum's as-a-service product called Momentum Video.

Momentum Video is touted to be a scalable and multipoint video conferencing service equipped with HD capabilities. Other features of Momentum Video include a desktop client, a mobile client, and components that allow for both presentation and recording. Momentum also claims that its Scopia-powered hosted video conferencing solution works with desktops, room-based equipment, smartphones, tablets, and UC apps.

Brandon Hagood, director of Product Development at Momentum, predicts a robust demand for video communications this year. Hagood cites the growing popularity of using video for personal communication as the "catalyst for the rapid infiltration of hosted video conferencing into the business market." Fast adoption can result from the availability of enterprise-grade video conferencing solutions that can be quickly deployed and come with small to nonexistent CAPEX.

In his prepared statement, Hagood lauds the company's Momentum Video: "Momentum Video conferencing empowers face-to-face virtual meetings with multiple parties - customers, prospects and team members - from anywhere in the world. Fully interoperable with room-based equipment, desktops, tablets, smartphones and UC apps, Momentum's BYOD compatible solution truly has no limitations."

"Enterprise collaboration tools have become fundamental to daily correspondence impacting the way traditional sales, service and support channels operate," said Alan Creighton, president and CEO of Momentum, in a prepared statement. "Momentum Video creates conference rooms without walls - the anywhere-access, real-time communications today's professionals need."

Meanwhile, Radvision launched its two new video components, Scopia Elite 6000 Series MCUs and eVident, last month. And in December 2012, Catalyst Telecom announced that it would be offering Avaya's Scopia XT Telepresence platform as well as Scopia Desktop and Mobile video conferencing technologies. (KOM) Link.
