Radvision has unveiled 3G video services solution for the Microsoft desktop multimedia communications architecture.
The demonstration at a trade show in France last week, featured real-time video calling between 3G video handsets and PCs running Microsoft’s upcoming integrated communications client, codenamed Istanbul.
With this solution users can launch a video call from a Microsoft-powered desktop PC to a 3G video phone with just a few clicks of a mouse.
“Over the past year we have seen huge interest both by [IT managers] for personal desktop multimedia communications and from the 3G operator for real-time 3G video calling,” said Boaz Raviv, general manager of Radvision’s Networking Business Unit.
“The integration of these two worlds, through our presence-based iVIEW multimedia communications architecture and our SCOPIA 3G video services platform, now enables enterprises and service providers to quickly deploy real-time visual communications networks that spans from the employee’s desktop to his or her 3G phone.”
The Radvision SCOPIA 3G Video Gateway, which enables visual communication between IP and 3G devices, enables PCs with the Istanbul desktop client to connect to 3G handsets.
The Radvision 3G gateway bridges video calls between 3G-324M enabled mobile video phones and PDAs with IP-based video answering machines and other IP (SIP and H.323) and ISDN-based videoconferencing end points.
The platform also enables mobile videophones to utilise additional resources on the IP network including multipoint conferencing bridges, which host three or more parties in a single session, voice and video gatekeepers and terminals.
