Cisco Announcements at InfoComm: Transforming Video Communications

June 16, 2011 - 1 Comment

Guest post by Didier Moretti, VP/GM of Cisco’s Media Experience and Analytics Business.

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.

Here’s how it works:


This is just the tip of the iceberg:

As video becomes a more integral and embedded part of the way business is done, Cisco’s media transformation solutions will help make video truly pervasive and accessible to all —from video analytics that make it it easy to find and consume relevant content, to the ability for anyone to create live and on-demand video content quickly, easily, with consumer-grade ease of use and enterprise-grade production and branding.   Cisco is committed to delivering richer ways to use video to transform how people work and learn on a global scale.
