CREATION OF A VIDEOCONFERENCING SYSTEM
GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
To reduce the number of business trips, save time and financial resources.
To implement a modern video conferencing system with Full HD quality
- A Cisco Meeting Server hardware and software platform.
JSC Vologdaoblenergo (VOEK) is one of the major grid power companies in the Vologda region, with presence in the region’s 19 municipal districts. Meetings between branch employees happen on a regular basis via telephone and in person, which has been inconvenient and expensive.
The task for the Jet Infosystems IT team was to implement a video conferencing system using the most advanced available technologies. The customer selected the Cisco Meeting Server conferencing platform, which is a universal software platform for multipoint audio, video and web conferencing. The system allows any employee to arrange meetings and connect to negotiations via a video communication system either in a meeting room, on a desktop video terminal, via a mobile client, or a browser. The Cisco Meeting Server platform offers extensive capabilities for multipoint video communications with Full HD 1080p video resolution and up to 60 frames per second.
The main Cisco Meeting Server system was installed in a VOEK meeting room, thin (software) clients were installed on desktop PCs in company’s branches and dedicated software on mobile devices.
The new videoconferencing system helps reduce the number of corporate business trips and has become an integral part of Vologdaoblenergo’s digital transformation process.
