Avocor Teams Up with Zoom to Elevate and Simplify Video Communications
Avocor, a worldwide leader in collaboration display solutions, announced today that is teaming up with Zoom Video Communications, to make it easy for customers to have the most advanced video conferencing solutions that intuitively work together out of the box and are supremely easy to use. The collaboration kicks off with an integration between Avocor and Zoom Rooms for Touch, Zoom’s software-based conference room solution that runs on large touch displays.
“We know that customers want the best combination of solutions and to be able to simply walk in a room, start a meeting and use those tools,” said Dana Corey, GM & VP of Sales at Avocor. “With Zoom we are taking the guess work out of those decisions and creating solutions for both our reseller partners as well as end users so every collaboration space is super easy to use, reliable and intuitive.”
The first integration of Zoom with Avocor is Zooms Rooms for Touch. Zoom Rooms changed room-based communications as the first software-based video conference room system. An alternative to inflexible, cloud-unfriendly, overpriced legacy hardware room systems, it enables companies to easily set up powerful DIY (do-it-yourself) conference rooms across their entire organization. Zoom Rooms features wireless content sharing, high-quality video and audio conferencing with up to 500 interactive video participants, and integrations with popular calendaring systems. Zoom Rooms for Touch is a mode of Zoom Rooms software that runs on large touch displays. Because video conferencing involves both local and remote participants, adding an Avocor display enables a large central visual point in each physical room, from conference room to huddle room to executive office, that seamlessly integrates with the Zoom Rooms for Touch solution. Adding a large interactive display helps with collaboration whiteboarding accuracy as well as viewing detail and seeing non-verbal communication within the entire gallery view of participants.
To simplify buying the solution, Avocor will provide bundles with Zoom’s software pre-installed, in various size, performance and pricing options catered to fit each customer’s need, application and budget, through their reseller channel and will look to attach other best-in-class tools from partners that provide a superior experience with the same ease-of-use that is synonymous with Zoom and Avocor.
Beyond bundled solutions, Avocor and Zoom are exploring creating proprietary solutions and applications to provide an advanced experience that integrates the sophistication of each system and enhances them being used together.
Avocor plans to display the initial offering with Zoom at ISE 2018 in Amsterdam at booth 13-C110.
“Zoom is focused on simplifying the customer experience. Working with Avocor is a great way to do that,” said Oded Gal, head of product for Zoom. “Our systems work incredibly well together and both have been designed to be both robust and easy-to-use. We want to further enhance the customer experience by taking guesswork out of the hardware and software selection and providing simple solutions to give the customer what they need right out of the box.”
