SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 3, 2014) - Zoom, the cloud meeting company, today begins the transformation of room-based conferencing with the launch of ZoomPresence, the easiest and most affordable way to transform your conference room into a video and collaboration space. Zoom introduced ZoomPresence by demonstrating its set up live in less than four minutes at today's DEMO Enterprise 2014 invitation-only showcase of innovative products in San Francisco.
ZoomPresence is the Zoom application that runs on Mac mini with touchscreen functionality, and offers five innovations:
Easy set up. Zoom can be set up within minutes by connecting your HD camera, touchscreen, and monitor(s) to a Mac mini; then load the Zoom application.
Integrated solution. Zoom integrates with your Google or Outlook calendar so you can instantly host or schedule a meeting from your browser. With ZoomPresence, see your schedule of upcoming meetings and start your meeting with a single touch.
Flexible meetings. Up to 100 interactive video participants and 1,000 webinar viewers can join your ZoomPresence meeting. Unlike other platforms, ZoomPresence is an all-in-one solution so participants can join from their desktops, laptops, mobile devices, telephones, traditional room systems and other ZoomPresence systems.
Fits any room. ZoomPresence is the only solution that fits any conference room -- small with one HD screen, medium with two HD screens, or large with three HD screens.
Content sharing. ZoomPresence allows you to collaborate by sharing desktop and mobile content over Wi-Fi or by direct HDMI connection. It is also the first platform that can share client-side streaming video with audio.
Starting at $999 to equip your conference room, ZoomPresence saves customers more than 90% over traditional room systems. Compared to the ongoing maintenance fees of these traditional systems, Zoom's annual subscription fee of $99 is the most affordable on the market.
"ZoomPresence dramatically reduces the cost of room-based meetings by shifting collaboration to the cloud, said Eric S. Yuan, Founder and CEO of Zoom. "ZoomPresence brings HD video conferencing, simple online meetings and mobile collaboration to any conference room."
"We've have been using Zoom to connect our global IT team for the past year. It has been a great solution for our desktop and mobile collaboration. We're thrilled to bring Zoom into our conference rooms with ZoomPresence. It's ease-of-use, attractive price tag, and high quality content sharing means we won't miss a beat, even across oceans." - Dennis Hodges, CIO, Inteva Products LLC
"At CalState TEACH, we have been very satisfied users of Zoom for the past two years, and have been glad to extend their simple, powerful solution into our classrooms and school sites with the introduction of ZoomPresence. ZoomPresence is the ideal tool for connecting our faculty, students and mentor teachers to each other and the outside world with video and content sharing. While offering among the most robust set of features available on the market today, Zoom manages to provide a solution that is a fraction of the cost of other platform's we've tried. To put it simply, it is a tool we could not live without!" -John C. Ittelson Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, California State University Monterey Bay
