eZuce’s Video Collaboration Solution Viewme (formerly SeeVogh), is available to higher education institutions as part of the Internet2 NET+ initiative. Faculty, staff and students at member institutions can have unlimited access to the video collaboration solution to support virtual classrooms, intercampus learning, extended office hours, study groups and many other applications. It eliminates costly setup fees, and provides free clients enabling every user their own meeting room. The solution integrates with legacy telepresence systems while delivering a high-quality, enterprise class video collaboration platform, and it supports Windows, Android and iOS-based mobile devices to facilitate immersive visual collaboration with anyone, anywhere, at any time. Jack Suess, VP for Information Technology and CIO at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, is a strong advocate. “UMBC was looking for something that was very easy to use, and didn’t require administrative setup, that worked with our enterprise H.323 systems,” he says, “and was inexpensive enough that we could deploy it to all faculty and staff without charging extra for it.” For Suess, this solution is the first product that hit all three. It currently provides visual collaboration for thousands of researchers on a global basis as part of the The eZuce SRN (formerly The SeeVogh Research Network). Check it out.
