Wildix, a developer of web-based unified communications and collaboration solutions, has introduced Wizyconf, a video conferencing system for meeting and conference rooms. The new system is designed to take the complexity out of room video conferencing, according to Wildix, allowing non-technical users to set up a video conference while enabling increased collaboration during conferences. The Wizyconf system is available immediately through the company's roughly 170 U.S. partners and over 700 worldwide partners.
“Legacy video conferencing systems can be difficult to use and often require frequent IT support while newer desktop, laptop, or mobile solutions don’t provide the quality and flexibility many users require,” said Robert Cooper, U.S. channel manager at Wildix, in a press statement. “This new solution brings greater simplicity, collaboration, and performance to video conferencing, enabling more effective group-to-group communications across offices and with customers or partners.”
Designed to provide a fully immersive, integrated video conferencing experience, Wizyconf includes a wide-angle 4K static camera, a pan-tilt-zoom web camera, two studio quality microphones, a three-display mobile cart, and a Chrome OS PC.
The system supports up to three 65-inch displays and comes with a remote control that manages all system functions to make conference setup easier. Operating off Chrome OS with WebRTC eliminates issues with updates or driver incompatibility, Wildix says, to further enhance simplicity while providing higher security.
The launch of Wizyconf follows last year’s introduction of the Wildix Ubicon Huddle, a turnkey desktop WebRTC-based video conferencing solution that supports 1080p video. Through Wizyconf and Ubicon Huddle, Wildix provides SMBs the ability to tailor room video conferencing solution to their needs while providing partners with a single-vendor video conference offering.
Wizyconf and Ubiconf Huddle complement the Wildix unified communications and collaborations platform, which leverages a web-based PBX with WebRTC to provide fully unified desktop and mobile communications that integrate voice, web conferencing, chat, and email in a simple-to-use, secure portal. The company sells its solutions exclusively through a network of channel partners.
“Our partners are selling and making more money with us,” said Cooper in an interview with ChannelPro at this year's CompTIA ChannelCon event. “That’s because A, we don’t sell through distribution. I don’t have a two-tier model, so it’s direct to the partner. And B, we train them on selling value. It’s not a commodity-based play.”
The worldwide video conference market will expand at a 14% CAGR through 2024 to $20 billion, according to Global Market Insights.
