ATLANTA, March 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- PGi (NYSE: PGI), the world's largest pure-play provider of collaboration software and services, today announced that its award-winning iMeet product now offers seamless integration with all popular video room systems and endpoints using SIP/H.323 standards, helping enterprises unlock more value from their investments in video conferencing technology.
"Businesses worldwide have invested billions in static video conferencing rooms and endpoints to drive collaboration, but those systems haven't kept pace with the increasing demands of the modern workforce," said David Guthrie, PGi chief technology officer. "The result is that many of these expensive video room systems are rarely used. iMeet gives companies one single solution for all their virtual meetings—whether users are in a video conference room, at their desks or on-the go—enabling enterprises to unlock the full potential of their video room investments."
iMeet Video Rooms features:
- Easy Setup: iMeet connects to a video conferencing system in a few simple steps via H.323 or SIP protocols.
- Seamless Integration: iMeet works with the most popular video conferencing systems, including those from Polycom, Lifesize, Cisco and more.
- Real-time Collaboration: iMeet connects the people in the video conferencing room with remote workers joining the meeting from laptops or mobile devices, making it easy to collaborate with colleagues wherever they are.
- Superior Audio Quality: iMeet is built on PGi's global hybrid audio network, trusted by 75% of the Fortune 100™, providing industry-leading audio quality in every video conference.
- Screen Sharing To and From Video Room Systems: Leverage iMeet's fast, high-quality screen share capabilities from any device in any location.
