ISE 2018: Avocor Teams with Zoom on Intuitive Video Conferencing Solution

Avocor teams up with Zoom to elevate and simplify video communications.

Avocor, a collaboration displays manufacturer which launched in 2016, has quickly established a high-profile partnership. At ISE 2018, Avocor and Zoom Video Communications announce an integration between Avocor and Zoom Rooms for Touch, Zoom’s software-based conference room solution that runs on large touch displays.

The idea behind the product integration, according to an Avocor press release, is to make it easy for customers to have the most advanced video conferencing solutions that intuitively work together out of the box and are supremely easy to use.

“We know that customers want the best combination of solutions and to be able to simply walk in a room, start a meeting and use those tools,” sauys Dana Corey, GM & VP of sales, Avocor.

“With Zoom we are taking the guess work out of those decisions and creating solutions for both our reseller partners as well as end users so every collaboration space is super easy to use, reliable and intuitive.”

Avocor and Zooms Rooms for Touch

Zoom Rooms is a software-based video conference room system — an alternative to what Avocor describes as inflexible, cloud-unfriendly, overpriced legacy hardware room systems – and it enables companies to easily set up powerful DIY (do-it-yourself) conference rooms across their entire organization, according to the press release.

Zoom Rooms for Touch is a mode of Zoom Rooms software that runs on large touch displays. Because video conferencing involves both local and remote participants, adding an Avocor display enables a large central visual point in each physical room.

It features wireless content sharing, high-quality video and audio conferencing with up to 500 interactive video participants, and integrations with popular calendaring systems.

Zoom Rooms for Touch is a mode of the software that runs on large touch displays. Because video conferencing involves both local and remote participants, adding an Avocor display enables a large central visual point in each physical room, from conference room to huddle room to executive office, that seamlessly integrates with the Zoom Rooms for Touch solution.

Adding a large interactive display helps with collaboration whiteboarding accuracy as well as viewing detail and seeing non-verbal communication within the entire gallery view of participants.

Avocor will provide bundles with Zoom’s software pre-installed, in various size, performance and pricing options catered to fit each customer’s need, application and budget, through their reseller channel and will look to attach other best-in-class tools from partners that provide a superior experience with the same ease-of-use that is synonymous with Zoom and Avocor, according to the press release.

Beyond bundled solutions, Avocor and Zoom are exploring creating proprietary solutions and applications to provide an advanced experience that integrates the sophistication of each system and enhances them being used together.

The initial offering with Zoom is on display at Avocor’s ISE 2018 stand 13-C110.

 “Zoom is focused on simplifying the customer experience. Working with Avocor is a great way to do that,” says Oded Gal, head of product, Zoom.

“Our systems work incredibly well together and both have been designed to be both robust and easy-to-use. We want to further enhance the customer experience by taking guesswork out of the hardware and software selection and providing simple solutions to give the customer what they need right out of the box.”
