VoIP and collaboration vendor Zultys has introduced MXmeeting Release 4.2, a newly enhanced version of its flagship unified collaboration system. 4.2 adds four-way videoconferencing, a multipoint Webcam feature that supports up to 4 concurrent webcams in one meeting room, enhanced Outlook integration, greater speed, clustering to boost capacity and add redundancy, Webinar polling, active directory integration, and access to a 250-port voice conference solution (covering the U.S. and Canada).
The MXmeeting platform is a single, SIP-based server incorporating video, voice, desktop Web interaction, IM, virtual meeting rooms, online presentations, file sharing, and training and demonstration tools. The new release complements the companys IP PBX portfolio, which scales up to 10,0000 users across 128 locations, and can be linked or clustered to either a MX250 or MX30 PBX, or used as a standalone device. In addition, MXmeeting comes in four flavors, ranging from the M200, supporting two meeting rooms with ten simultaneous users, to the M1000, which can handle 200 and 2000, respectively.
Other significant enhancements include client-less Web seminar support; remote support and troubleshooting; remote access, regardless of firewalls or static IP addresses; and file uploads of any size or extension.
“Since we started using MXmeeting we’ve seen a dramatic reduction in travel and training costs, and a huge boost in productivity and responsiveness,” said Heidi Maschmann, VP Information Systems/Inventory, ELITeXPO, the premier provider of critical transportation for specialized event marketing materials. “Up until the deployment of MXmeeting all training was completed at our HQ with all of the associated costs and downtime that is driven by physical employee travel. The operational costs as well as the overhead for my training rollout dropped by over 90 percent and we’ve seen an increase in our on-time delivery rate. Not only that, our employee morale went up and our customers loved the result.
