InFocus Unveils ConX, the New Solution for Enterprise Conferencing and Collaboration

World’s first scalable HD video conferencing and data visualization system combines endpoints, software, and cloud services to enable easy and powerful connection, collaboration and sharing ideas in real time.

Integrated Systems Europe 2016 Amsterdam, NL & Portland, Ore. - February 9, 2016 — InFocus, which is changing the way people connect across the table and across the globe, unveiled its transformative new video conferencing platform today at ISE 2016. InFocus ConX is a collaboration solution offering a customizable combination of products, software and services that allow businesses, schools and facilities to connect to anyone, virtually anywhere, and collaborate with more ease and flexibility than has ever before been possible. The platform facilitates the large-scale connection of people and ideas, making multiple streams of information meaningful and actionable. ConX integrates advanced video and information-sharing technologies into one fully configurable and scalable solution for sharing ideas and working on solutions that spans mobile devices, office desktops, huddle rooms, board rooms, and video walls.

The ConX platform offers several enterprise-ready solutions, including the new ConX Wall and ConX Exec systems. Both are video conferencing solutions that feature multi-endpoint video conferencing and content sharing, configurable for a range of applications, from the executive office to the boardroom. Using multiple ultra-narrow-bezel HD displays, users can customize ConX solutions for any wall size ranging from a single display to a large videowall.

What sets ConX Wall and ConX Exec apart from a basic video wall is 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. This allows 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.
Like InFocus Canvas Touch, also announced today at ISE 2016, ConX combines the technology strengths of Jupiter Systems and Avistar, both recent InFocus acquisitions, to provide scalable, flexible, and affordable solutions. The platform can connect anyone across the globe, from a mobile device to a desktop video phone, computer, video wall, or another videoconferencing endpoint, such as the InFocus Mondopad.
“InFocus ConX is not only a proof point of how our recent acquisitions contribute to the products we can provide, it’s also the ultimate way people can connect,” said Brady O. Bruce, CMO, InFocus. “With ConX, people can video conference and collaborate in boardrooms, in huddle rooms, at the desk and on the go more powerfully, more easily, and more affordably than ever before. Our combination of hardware, software, and cloud services make it possible for people to see each other and collaborate almost everywhere on an amazing range of supported devices. The system is tremendously flexible and scalable. Customers can choose the elements they want now and add more as their requirements evolve.”
Video collaboration with users across a broad range of devices is made possible by ConX Video Meeting, InFocus’ cloud-based meeting service. Users of ConX Wall and ConX Exec systems can connect with colleagues on their ConX PhoneMondopad, PC, smartphone, tablet, and 3rd party SIP-compliant and H.323 systems. Callers on standard phones can dial in as audio-only participants.
“This is just the beginning. InFocus will continue to innovate, invest and lead in this space,” added Bruce. “These new solutions are merely the beginning of what we can offer in terms of solutions that provide powerful ways for people to connect and share with one other person or thousands of others.”
