Magor Communications Announces Release 3 of the Magor TeleCollaboration HDWorkPlace Family

Advanced collaboration capabilities allow participants to see, control and edit shared files and documents in real time, improving the effectiveness of meetings
Delivers highest quality 1080p video conferencing and collaboration – including over best effort Internet connections
Ottawa, ON, Canada – March 8, 2010Magor Communications today announced Release 3 of the Magor TeleCollaboration™ HDWorkPlace family of telecollaboration systems. Designed to dramatically improve the effectiveness of video-based meetings, the HDWorkPlace family seamlessly integrates advanced data collaboration capabilities into a peer-to-peer, high definition (HD) video conferencing experience. With instant drag-and-drop sharing of computer desktops (any mix of PC, Mac, Linux, UNIX or Solaris systems) through an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI), Magor’s advanced collaboration capabilities allow permitted participants to see, control and edit shared files and documents in real time. So, instead of “talk now, do later”, users conduct working visual collaboration sessions that allow them to make decisions, get work done and produce results more quickly.
Release 3 introduces flexible video compression processes that can adapt in real time to varying network conditions and end-user behavior. By extending basic video scaling principles with segmentation and adaptation, Release 3 effectively eliminates the potential negative impacts that video can have on networks. This approach protects critical network traffic and applications while delivering 1080p video and collaboration – including over best effort IP packet network connections such as the Internet. Setting the benchmark for Good Network Citizenship for enterprise video conferencing solutions, Release 3 does all this without overburdening the network or significantly increasing IT costs.
“Magor TeleCollaboration systems focus on the entire collaborative experience – delivering immersive voice, high definition video and data in a single, easy to use system,” said Dan Rusheleau, EVP of Product Development for Magor. “By including data collaboration as an integral part of the HD video conferencing system, we help enhance decision making and improve productivity.”
“With Release 3, Magor is leading the market in extending the reach of HD video conferencing and collaboration beyond the board room and executive suite,” continued Rusheleau. “We are taking the power of telecollaboration to ordinary meeting rooms and individual offices, where real workers can get real work done.”
Technology advances available in Release 3 include:
·          Advanced Scalable Video: Magor TeleCollaboration is based on a codec-agnostic, peer-to-peer video architecture, the ONLY scalable, adaptive, real time 1080p HD video available today. Magor TeleCollaboration extends basic scalability principles with innovative video segmentation and network adaptation processes that optimize the key areas of the picture and the required network resources. This approach protects the network from the potential negative impacts of video and overcomes the challenges of delivering 1080p video over best effort network connections.
·          Peer-to-peer communications architecture: Magor’s peer-to-peer communication architecture allows each Magor endpoint to operate independently of the others. This means that new participants can be added spontaneously and participants can drop out, with no effect on the experience of the other participants. This approach also enables users to tailor their visual experience to their own needs choosing exactly what they see and how they see it.
·          Interoperability with legacy end points and MCUs: Release 3 ensures that all Magor video, audio and collaboration capabilities are preserved when interoperating with other video conferencing systems. This helps ensure that worker productivity is not hindered by system incompatibilities and allows an enterprise to leverage its investment in existing solutions.
·          Remote Collaboration: Release 3 incorporates advanced remote collaboration capabilities that give people who are not sitting in front of a Magor TeleCollaboration HDWorkPlace system the ability to access the shared content online through a Web browser while participating in the conversation by phone. There is no need for the remote worker to install any thin clients nor do they have to endure any training to participate in the collaboration session.
