AMSTERDAM, Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AVI-SPL will showcase its video solutions expertise this February 4-6, 2014 at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) with demonstrations of its Virtual Meeting Room service and award-winning VNOC Symphony® management platform and Block ME™ meeting environment privacy solution. (Booths 8-K290 and 12-F74)
During the show, AVI-SPL will illustrate the flexibility of its Virtual Meeting Room service as it connects from a desktop, Lync system, mobile device and more. The VMR service leverages AVI-SPL's high availability virtual architecture to create a Video as a Service (VaaS) offering for a reliable, scalable and low-cost option for virtual meetings. The unique design also enables larger enterprises to support the growing trend of BYOD (bring your own device) and provides a secure virtual meeting room outside the corporate network for mobile users.
AVI-SPL will also showcase its patented and award-winning VNOC Symphony, the first software platform to automate the complex, backend processes needed to schedule, monitor and manage video conferencing and AV resources. Symphony's recent release of version 3.1 includes enhanced reporting capabilities and expanded AV monitoring features, with over 3,000 AV devices from leading manufacturers now supported with AVI-SPL's AV monitoring service.
In addition, AVI-SPL will demonstrate its patent-pending meeting environment privacy product Block ME, a 2014 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award winner. Block ME addresses the concern of unauthorized video calls launching in meeting rooms. Users simply press a button to stop video calls from being initiated or received. The control is in the hands of the user with no need for technical expertise because at a glance, you'll know if the device is engaged. Green means calls are unblocked; red means calls are blocked.
"As people increasingly embrace video communications as a critical component of their collaboration strategy, they demand more from it. They want to take it outside of the boardroom to their desktop and mobile devices," said Mike Brandofino, executive vice president of video and unified communications. "It's our job to provide solutions and services that meet these growing demands and elevate the user experience. At this year's ISE show, I think we'll show the European market that AVI-SPL is the only partner they need for all of their collaboration needs."
Also during ISE 2014, members of AVI-SPL's leadership team will participate in presentations on topics affecting today's business communications, including:

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
