Ubiety Huddle Room

Introducing Ubiety Huddle Room

A purpose built software only video conference room codec

Turn every meeting room into a fully interoperable video collaboration room Using any standard PC, Mac or even Chromebox

intro-img

HD video conference endpoints from manufacturers like Cisco, Polycom & Lifesize are great, however when starting prices are $2.5k+ it can be hard to justify the cost of purchasing these for every meeting room. Plus the fact that most current non video conference meeting rooms already have a multifunctional PC or Mac in the meeting room connected to a display and have a conference phone in the room. So we thought to ourselves we have our insanely high quality interoperable Ubiety app for any PC/Mac/Chrome, so why not turn this into a room based video conference endpoint using software only.

Interoperability

The Ubiety platform is all about interoperability, so naturally when we created a room based login
we wanted to extend this interoperability to the highest level….

Its Own Identity

own-identity

The big difference for Ubiety Huddle Room vs traditional web conferencing on a meeting room device is that the room based device gets its own login, identity and presence. Meaning it can call to and from Ubiety Huddle Room to Ubiety Huddle Room (obviously), but more importantly as described in the chart above can call to/from a number of different endpoints, bridges, software and platforms. All meaning the you can leverage all your existing investments/infrastructure/services.

Call escalation

Since all the smart technology resides in our cloud the Ubiety Huddle Room endpoint can seamlessly call escalate to up to 25 participants whether dialing out other Ubiety Huddle Rooms, traditional video conference endpoints, video bridges, Ubiety users or even phone participants.

Local Address Books

Each Ubiety Huddle Room login has its own local address book meaning you can search for other Ubiety Huddle Rooms & users in your domain, but also add entries for video conference systems and other bridges. Making it super simple click and call to connect point to point or multipoint to any other video devices.

Already Have a Conference Phone?

No worries, Ubiety Huddle Room can call back to your conference phone for audio input/output and the system is even smart enough to know you’ve connected audio on the phone so when you speak, your video switches up to everyone in the conference. Oh and phone call minutes to your conference phone are included for free. Sweet hey?

devices

Multipurpose Device

We do not force your device to only run our service, it’s just an app so you can continue to use the standard operating system and use the device for other purposes when not in a video call. This also allows you to screen share from the device into conference, sharing whatever content you have locally including powerpoint, documents and videos.

pricing
