What happens when you combine the best in affordable video hardware with the best in cloud videoconferencing?   You get a fantastic new revenue opportunity for SkySwitch white label UCaaS Resellers.   That’s right, SkySwitch now offers a video conferencing solution for huddle rooms and meeting rooms that’s integrated with the Meeting Manager web and video conferencing application and other SkySwitch UCaaS applications.

The new solution, available for sale now from the SkySwitch store,  utilizes low-cost video hardware and an existing conference phone to add an exciting new dimension to the Meeting Manager web and video conferencing service.

It allows you to convert any meeting room into a high-definition video conferencing center.   When combined with a LCD displays, a SIP conference phone, USB webcam and bluetooth wireless keyboard/mouse, a high-quality video conferencing solution for small meeting and huddle rooms is readily available to any UCaaS customer.   With MSRP pricing below $2,000 (depending on the type of conference phone chosen) the solution outperforms systems costing more than twice as much.

Starting and managing a video conference is extremely easy.   And the system supports several meeting modes, including:

  • High-definition video conferences with up to 30 feeds across two LCD screens
  • Video webcasts for up to 100 viewing participants
  • Desktop sharing with annotation and file sharing

Participants outside of the conference room can join a web meeting or video conference from many different types of endpoints.  These include:  another huddle room equipped with the video conferencing appliance, a device with Meeting Manager client software (available on Windows, Mac, Apple iOS or Android); or even a Yealink T58 video phone.  In addition, a video meeting can be viewed from any web browser.  This makes it incredibly easy to bring colleagues together whether they are in a remote office, working from home, or on the road. 

Other features include the capability for any participant to record conference sessions directly to their device (the video room host can record sessions onto a USB drive), high definition video at 20 frames per second, the ability for any participant to be the presenter, and the ability for any on-net PBX extension to join as an audio-only participant.

With more features than systems costing significantly more, selling video conferencing for huddle rooms and has never been easier.
