ORLANDO, Fla., June 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- At InfoComm 2015, Winnov introduces its new family of Cbox video capture and streaming solutions that evolve with customer needs and deployment requirements in higher education, enterprise communications, and related vertical markets. Built on an agile platform with internet-centric software development down to the programmable AV processing chip, Winnov Cbox solutions provide organizations with a cost-effective way to easily capture and share rich media experiences.
"The 'one-size-fits-all' solutions that typify the presentation and lecture capture industry fail to adequately address the individual needs of each customer," said Olivier Garbe, CEO of Winnov.
"Four years ago, it became clear that the lecture capture industry was evolving due to the rapid transformation of internet and video technologies. After introducing the most flexible and powerful, multi-source capture solution to date, we began developing a unique platform that could expand and change along with each customer's technology requirements. Applying the Virtual Machine (VM) concept to our presentation and lecture capture solutions, one Cbox can replace capture appliances in up to five classrooms - maximizing recording efficiency and the value of the investment."
Winnov is focused on reducing the cost of ownership and future-proofing customers based on three key components:
- Scalable and powerful solutions that can expand as customer needs evolve
- An easy-to-use interface that allows any users to centrally monitor, manage, and automate recording and streaming across their network
- Open architecture that enables easy integration of existing and future applications from Winnov and its partners.
With a much smaller footprint than traditional hardware video capture and streaming solutions, Cbox S3 boasts the most powerful capabilities in the smallest volume and lowest power consumption. Unlike basic presentation recorders, Cbox S3 supports many connectivity options and agile software, allowing integration with a wide range of audio and video equipment and devices to capture immersive multi-source experiences or lectures and presentations across multiple rooms simultaneously - all from a single Cbox.
As room recording activities increase, Cbox Command Center makes it simple to remotely monitor and control rooms from desktops or mobile devices. Live previews of AV equipment and devices, room status, content quality and notifications provide users with a real-time overview of their deployments.
Thanks to Winnov's open architecture and APIs, Cbox Command Center provides easy integration with existing content management solutions, whether they are "home grown" or third party, as well as all control and scheduling management solutions that already exist within organizations – enabling customers to choose the solutions that best suit their needs and budgets.
"We understand that our customers must get maximum value from every dollar spent on technology," said Garbe. "For this reason, we've designed the new Cbox platform to not only accommodate increasing capacity demands, but also to allow customers the flexibility to utilize unique applications from other sources. It's a revolutionary approach that I believe customers will appreciate and truly sets us apart. It is just another example of how Winnov constantly raises the bar with transformative ideas and solid engineering."
