Audeo Shines a Spotlight on StarLeaf’s FREE Skype Meeting Interop Service
StarLeaf is the first cloud vendor to enable Skype Meetings to accommodate non Skype for Business video meeting room systems.
At UC Expo, ExCel 17th & 18th May 2017 on stand F117: Audeo the meeting room technology specialist, will be showcasing cloud video conferencing and calling solutions from the leader – StarLeaf. New for the show are StarLeaf’s services that allow traditional video meeting room systems, such as Cisco, Polycom etc., to join a scheduled Skype for Business Meeting. StarLeaf is the first to market with a solution that ranges from a free connectivity service – StarLeaf Medley – through to full integration services.
Available now, Medley can be accessed by any Skype Meeting organiser, who in one simple step can invite any number of internal or external third-party video systems to join their meeting. This is the first time video equipment from Cisco, Lifesize or Polycom, etc., can be invited and connected directly into a Skype Meeting.
Alongside the free Medley service, StarLeaf also offers premium services that incorporate an enterprise’s existing video systems into the Skype for Business environment. These premium services make those existing systems integral to the Skype Meeting workflow, giving users a consistent and familiar experience when scheduling meetings in Outlook. Whether organisations choose to use the free option or go for a seamless integration, StarLeaf offers a simple and easy way to continue to leverage existing video meeting room systems without further investment in complex infrastructure or conference bridging services.
There are no plug-ins or downloads involved, all it takes to use Medley, the free service, is to simply forward your Skype Meeting invite to email@example.com or add firstname.lastname@example.org to your invitee list when organising your meeting. The StarLeaf Medley service then automatically responds with third-party endpoint dial-in instructions.
Available for both on-premise and online deployments of Skype for Business, users can learn more and try the beta version of Medley today here.
