Columbus, Ohio. (August 4, 2020) – Wildix, developer of the first web-based unified communications and collaboration solution, today announced a new release of its Wizyconf video conferencing software. Wizyconf is fully integrated with the Wildix unified communication platform and encompasses mobile, desktop and room-based video conferencing and event hosting capabilities with new features that increase administrative control and simplify meeting hosting and participation.
With Wizyconf, Wildix users can quickly and easily initiate video conferences from the browser-based platform interface. Video conferences now feature displays of every participant's video stream in tile format, with no upper limit on displayed tiles and include a virtual “raise hand” feature to better manage participation in larger meetings. Meeting hosts have the ability to mute participants upon entering the meeting and to mute or unmute all participants at any time. Additional new features available in this release include whiteboarding, private messaging, more intuitive screen sharing and YouTube video sharing within the Wizyconf video pane with audio synced for all participants.
The new release of Wizyconf also supports up to 10,000 participants in broadcast mode, making it an ideal platform for hosting webinars and virtual company events. Because the platform is inherently web-based, participants outside the Wildix user organization are never required to download and install an app to access meetings or events.
“As businesses continue to evolve to support remote workers, the ability to connect one-to-one or as teams in videoconferences is becoming vital to enhancing collaboration and maintaining a strong culture,” said Robert Cooper, Managing Director of Wildix Americas. “With our newest release of Wizyconf we have put state-of-the-art video conferencing capabilities, fully integrated with other communication channels, at every users’ fingertips so they can work smarter.”
Wizyconf is supported by a free mobile app available through the Apple App Store and Google Play. Through the app, Wildix users have the ability to host meetings with full administrative control capabilities. Non-Wildix users can use the app to participate in Wildix video conferences via video from their phones.
Wizyconf also provides complete support for room-based video conferencing with the option of using a dedicated hardware unit for conference rooms, Wizyconf Conference Room, or using a smaller unit for less open spaces, Wizyconf Huddle Room. Wizyconf Conference Room takes the complexity out of room-based video conferencing with an intuitive interface powered by an easy-to-use proprietary remote control that allows users to conveniently manage all system functions, including the hardware’s three supported displays and dual cameras. Likewise, Wizyconf Huddle Room, a desk-based HD webcam with a 360-degree mic, allows for convenient control over video conferencing when hosting fewer numbers of room-based participants.
The new release of Wizyconf was enabled by the company’s release of WMS5, its fifth-generation management system. The react-based system ensures simplicity and an intuitive user interface across desktop and mobile devices as well as across the video, email, voice and chat capabilities included in the Wildix platform. WMS5 uses WebRTC for built-in security that immunizes the platform from malware attacks and ensures secure data transmission. The system includes multiple encryption features and enables users to setup a PIN for secure video conferences.
