Tata Communications’ jamvee is designed to enable video conferencing from any device.
The cloud-based video conferencing service enables users from any location via a desktop computer, laptop, tablet, smartphone or a Telepresence room.
Addressing the rapidly growing enterprises market, Jamvee is delivered through a fiber optic cable ring to ensure better quality and reach. Up to 46 participants can join each conference.
Tata Communications says the service is cost effective.
“Jamvee brings together video platforms, room systems and endpoints in a simple and elastic pre-packaged service,” said John Hayduk, president and CTO, Tata Communications.
jamvee software application supports Windows, Mac OSX, and iOS devices – with Android support following in August 2013.
Users of Microsoft Lync and other video conferencing software, as well as those with access to standard video conferencing such as Immersive Telepresence, can meet using jamvee.
Jamvee also provides a self-service portal for the professional user needing a personal video service.
Unlike current products on the market, billing is per endpoint and not per screen (e.g. a three screen Telepresence room will only count as one endpoint). It will be billed on a per-minute basis.
“Jamvee is an excellent tool to conduct productive and collaborative video meetings with clients who are based at multiple locations across continents. The ease of using video services on the move and on any device or platform, makes Jamvee highly preferred by global users,” said Mandar Marulkar, head of IT, KPIT Cummins.
