We are approaching a new frontier for video. Video communications technologies like Cisco TelePresence eliminate distance, making it easier for individual and teams to meet and collaborate regardless of physical location.
But how do we extend our reach, to hundreds or even thousands of people, across many different time zones and countries, in offices or on the go and on a variety of mobile devices?
My team within Cisco has been working on addressing these needs and developing a complete solution to capture, transform, and share video content, whether live or on demand. This week at InfoComm in Orlando, Florida, Cisco announced the newest release of the Media Experience Engine (MXE) 5600, fulfilling the next part of our capture-transform-share vision. The MXE 5600 delivers a breadth of services aimed at addressing specific customer needs, by bringing together telepresence, video conferencing, and unified communications endpoints into WebEx, and by enabling recording and sharing of live and studio mode meetings when combined with the Cisco TelePresence Content Server.
Our solution transforms any TelePresence or video conferencing endpoint into a content creation device – and enables users to time shift and engage when they are ready, from any device, anywhere. This combination enables people to engage and leverage talent at scale, and work together in new ways that were difficult to imagine before.
