Windows 2016 and HD Video Capabilities
Sonexis is excited to share a preview of the ConferenceManager™2, version 12.0! To give some insight on what to expect of our latest and greatest, we will be releasing information on new features and updates weekly.
Windows 2016 OS
The newest update to ConferenceManager2 will have an upgraded infrastructure. Based on Windows Server 2016 as well as the corresponding versions of IIS and Microsoft SQL Server, you can expect a significant increase in scalability, security and overall system performance with a 64 bit OS.
With this update, customers will see extended lifecycle support and security updates from Microsoft as well as support for TLS 1.2. In addition, the SQL Server 2016 64 bit offers substantial performance benefits and access to a larger memory space for your server.
Sonexis Web Conferencing is now equipped with HD video capabilities, enabling you to experience fully immersive communications. By having licensed web seats, customers will automatically have access to ConferenceMenager2’s HD Video feature. The HD Video feature allows for up to 5 Webcams to be published per Conference by both hosts and participants using the Publish/Unpublish Webcam Controls.
As the host of a Web Conference utilizing HD Video, you can enable/disable webcam publishing, lock webcam publishing and unpublish any specific participant’s webcam if/when needed. Hosts can also choose between Webcam feeds to determine which is the primary selection throughout the call, as well as choose between three possible viewing modes: Partial View, Full Screen, and Configurable Self View.
From an Admin perspective, management is even more advanced. In addition to managing layout and active video streams, ConferenceManager System Administrators have full control over the activation and administration of video capabilities. Admins have the ability to enable/disable webcams based on class of service as well as manage video quality settings and bandwidth. With these capabilities, system-wide management with Sonexis ConferenceManager2 is easier than ever.
Look out for more exciting feature highlights next week!
