Avistar Announces Revolutionary Multiparty Videoconferencing Performance Breakthrough
Nov 29, 2011 3:18 am

Avistar C3 Conference™ 3.0 delivers a cloud-ready HD multiparty videoconferencing experience at the fraction of the cost of hardware-based MCU's

SAN MATEO, Calif., November 29, 2011 - Avistar Communications Corporation (), a leader in unified visual communications solutions, today announced that its advanced conferencing and collaboration solution, Avistar C3 Conference™, now delivers cloud-ready, HD-quality multiparty videoconferencing at a fraction of the cost of similarly sized hardware-based multipoint control units (MCU).

Avistar C3 Conference™ is the industry's only all-software, enterprise-class multiparty videoconferencing platform that seamlessly interoperates with standards-based room systems and desktops. Designed to scale and support the needs of large enterprise deployments, cloud providers and technology partners, Avistar C3 Conference™ delivers critical multiparty video conferencing features such as transcoding and transrating for each participant in every conference.  With virtually unlimited conferencing scalability capabilities, which can be deployed on premises or via the cloud, the Avistar C3 Conference™ solution dramatically lowers the cost of multiparty videoconferencing on the desktop, across conference room solutions and out to leading Unified Communications solutions, and makes this solution affordable for a much wider range of organizations.

In a recent benchmark study of the Avistar C3 Conference™ solution using Intel Xeon E7-8837 processors in a Dell PowerEdge R910 Rack Server, the Avistar solution delivered 32 ports HD-quality multiparty videoconferencing for a list price of $1,750 per port including the cost of all software licensing and hardware. Avistar competitors' prices range in cost from $4,000 to $7,000 per a port for similar performance and features (including software and hardware).  

Stephen Epstein, Chief Marketing Officer, Avistar, said, "This breakthrough in multiparty videoconferencing processing, price performance and cloud enablement has largely been accomplished by the optimization of the Avistar C3 Conference media processing, the ability to use multiple servers to create a virtual single MCU and the continued performance improvements of off the shelf, standards- based server hardware. Our partners and clients can now deliver on-premises or on-demand multiparty videoconferencing capabilities to extremely large user and clients bases, at a price point that historically was not achievable."

Epstein added, "The Avistar C3 Conference™ solution is a significant milestone for the videoconferencing industry as other MCU manufacturers will be forced to rethink their MCU strategies to remain competitive.  Based on the greatly enhanced value and performance of our conferencing and collaboration solution, enterprise businesses and OEM vendors will benefit from these industry changes and the significant price and scalability improvements that the Avistar C3 Conference™ solution delivers."
