Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2013
-- Scopia Elite 6000 Series MCU shatters the price barriers for high
definition video conferencing
-- Unique hybrid software-hardware architecture delivers unparalleled
video quality and the highest port density in the industry
-- Revolutionary new MCU doubles the performance of traditional MCUs and

Radvision, an Avaya Company, today announced its next-generation Scopia
Elite 6000 Series multipoint control unit (MCU), enabling real-time
video collaboration for businesses of any size. The new Scopia Elite
6000 Series, which is the latest addition to the Elite Series MCU
portfolio, reduces the cost per port for high definition video
conferencing by up to 50 percent, offers double the density and
performance, and requires up to 75 percent less power than
traditional hardware-based MCUs.
Video conferencing is becoming more pervasive due to an increasing
number of video-enabled devices. As a result, there is growing demand
for higher quality video and greater ability to support more
participants and conferences as well as a mixture of endpoints. The
Scopia Elite 6000 Series MCU delivers that high quality through full
1080p60fps high definition video communication while minimizing the
bandwidth requirements for HD video in a streamlined, easy to use and
administer, cost-effective solution.
The Scopia Elite 6000 Series MCU offers:
-- Revolutionary Power. The Scopia Elite 6000 harnesses revolutionary
processing power, featuring dual 1080p/60fps channels for video and
content, simultaneous H.264 High Profile for bandwidth efficiency and
H.264 Scalable Video Coding (SVC), along with multi-stream immersive
telepresence connectivity deliver uncompromised multi-party
-- Unmatched Density and Scale. A hybrid architecture delivers unmatched
density with support for 40 full 1080p HD ports on a single 1U system,
and the highest processing performance available in the market.
Scopia's "Virtual MCU" management solution provides an intelligent,
distributed multi-party conferencing architecture for maximum
scalability and resiliency.
-- Maximum Ease of Use. Video information overlays along with easy
conference creation and entry through the enhanced on-screen auto
attendant make attending conferences simple. User can moderate
meetings through onscreen menus compatible with any endpoint or via
the Scopia Control iPad(R) app. They can easily mute participants,
change video layouts, start or pause recording and even invite other
For end users, Scopia Desktop and Scopia Mobile, both of which are
supported on the Elite 6000 Series MCU, enable one-click-to-video and
an intuitive interface for video conferencing on-the-go. Participants
can moderate a call, share content, record and stream and even choose
individual layouts featuring up to 28 on-screen participants.
IT administrators and service providers offering cloud-based video
conferencing also benefit from the capabilities of the recently
announced Scopia Management System, which features enhancements
including Google Maps integration providing a global geographic view
of the collaboration topology along with additional enhancements such
as multi-tenancy, concierge services, and massive scalability of up
to 400,000 users for service providers and large enterprises.
Additionally, the Scopia Elite 6000 supports the industry's broadest
telepresence interoperability including support for the recently
announced Scopia TIP Gateway. Scopia Elite MCUs are now fully
interoperable with all standards-based telepresence systems including
those from LifeSize, Polycom, and Cisco/Tandberg.
hybrid software-hardware approach to the Elite 6000 Series, Radvision
is creating a new category for transcoded video solutions. The Elite
6000 Series does exactly what a hardware-based MCU does, only more
efficiently -- and it offers the benefits of a software-only based
MCU but with more capacities and lower cost per port. It's a unique
offering that has the potential to redefine what enterprises and
service providers expect from their video vendors. And since
Radvision is now a part of Avaya, the roadmap for integrated
transcoded and switched video is very promising, offering end users a
best-of-both worlds approach to real-time collaboration."
