Tata Communications Launches Jamvee : On-Demand Business Video Service
Tata Communications on Tuesday launched video conferencing application ‘Jamvee’ – a multi-device compatible cloud-based video conferencing service that allows anyone to take part in a video meeting from any location via a desktop computer, laptop, tablet, smartphone or a dedicated Telepresence room. Jamvee can be accessed by up to 46 users for a common session.
The Jamvee software application supports Windows, Mac OSX and iOS devices – with Android support following in August 2013. Users of Microsoft Lync and other video conferencing software, as well as those with access to standard video conferencing systems such as Immersive Telepresence, can also meet using Jamvee.
So how does it work? Just like an audio conference you can access host and participant PINs on the Jamvee portal and send the participant PIN to people you want to meet with. Participants can then use any existing video system or Telepresence room that they have access to, or they simply download the free Jamvee app from the Apple app store or the Jamvee portal. Everyone taking part in the meeting just dials the same number (or in the case of the Jamvee app, presses the ‘Join Conference’ button) and enters their PIN to join the meeting – ensuring secure and private meetings both within your business and across multiple organisations.
“Lack of interoperability, consistency of experience per location, complicated price plans and the need for third-party reservations have stood in the way of truly global enterprise collaboration. Jamvee overcomes these barriers by making video conferences easy and on-demand, while seamlessly bringing together all video platforms, room systems and endpoints in a simple and elastic pre-packaged service. It’s so easy to use, instant and affordable. It’s what enterprises have been asking for.” said John Hayduk,Tata Communications, President and CTO.
