InFocus has unveiled its ConX communication and collaboration ecosystem at InfoComm, centred around the new ConX Cloud video conferencing service. ConX Cloud connects with ConX display hardware solutions ranging from Mondopad touch-enabled displays and ConX video phones to scalable ConX video conferencing walls supporting up to 96 displays, as well as ConX software and web apps for laptops, iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. The ConX system also supports H.323 and SIP industry standards, allowing businesses, schools and government agencies to connect to anyone using standards-based third-party devices.
ConX allows users to connect and collaborate with more ease and more flexibility. The combination of ConX Cloud and ConX devices and software from InFocus provides an integrated collaboration experience, while built-in support for industry standards provides the freedom to connect with people using legacy systems and other video conferencing services both inside and outside their organisation.
ConX Cloud Video Conferencing Service
The new ConX Cloud provides dual-stream data and video allowing everyone to see both faces and information at the same time, providing the closest experience to an in-person meeting. With ConX endpoints from InFocus, users on the video conference can present, annotate, whiteboard, create, edit, share, save and send information in real-time. ConX Cloud supports SIP, H.323, and Skype for Business interoperability, so you can bring people and data together through a wide variety of endpoints and services on both InFocus and legacy third-party devices.
ConX Cloud service includes support for InFocus Mondopad and a range of InFocus ConX endpoints including ConX Wall, ConX Exec, and ConX Phone, as well as audio (PSTN) dial-in, ConX mobile apps for iOS and Android, ConX apps for Windows and Mac OS, and ConX web apps. ConX Cloud also supports InFocus’ BrightCam technology for intelligent HD video enhancement, adaptively improving video conferencing image colour and detail in a variety of ambient light conditions on selected InFocus devices.
ConX Ecosystem Hardware
ConX hardware endpoints integrate advanced video and information-sharing technologies into fully configurable and scalable solutions for conference rooms, huddle rooms, and video walls.
The Mondopad is one of the most versatile pieces of the ConX ecosystem. The all-in-one touch-enabled system allows teams to connect and share any type of content with anyone in the room, as well as with attendees who are remote. Mondopad now supports the new ConX Whiteboard, enabling professionals in multiple locations to interact and share ideas on a Mondopad whiteboard, while simultaneously using ConX Cloud. Everyone can see the same whiteboard screen, and each participant can draw, write or insert text or images.
ConX Wall and ConX Exec
For collaboration and conferencing with even more screen real estate, InFocus offers ConX Exec and ConX Wall. Both are video conferencing solutions that feature multi-screen configurations that can scale from two displays to 96 showing both shared data and video conferencing participants. ConX Wall and ConX Exec are ideal for those applications in which seeing the big picture means seeing a big picture. Using multiple ultra-narrow-bezel HD displays, users can customise these ConX solutions for any wall size ranging from that in an executive suite to the largest venue.
Both ConX Wall and ConX Exec have an integrated video conferencing multipoint control unit (MCU) server. The server enables users to instantly configure and change each input image to any number of the displays, allowing in-room participants to focus on whatever content they want at any given time, such as a data or video stream from a remote participant. This unique ability to create a user-defined layout and to have control from all kinds of devices makes ConX Wall and ConX Exec ideal for enterprise management, public services, education and training.
The ConX Phone from InFocus is a powerful desktop videophone with a 10.1-inch colour HD screen, a 720p camera, and a familiar user interface. The built-in wide-band speaker and high-dynamic-range microphone ensure clear hands-free conversations, or use your headset. Making an audio or video call with the ConX Phone is straightforward and you can import your existing contact lists and manage features from the web. ConX Phone users not only see and hear remote participants on any supported ConX device, but can also see shared presentations and whiteboards on the integrated screen.
