OTTAWA, Ont. – March 4, 2014 – Magor Corporation (TSX Venture: MCC) today announced two key developments to the Aerus™ Service Delivery Platform (SDP) that bring greater reach and service options to end users:
The software-based Aerus SDP has been designed to deliver a new level of flexibility for enterprise-grade visual collaboration by combining cloud computing, peer-to-peer networking and media stream switching to enable:
"Our ongoing strategy with Aerus is to elevate the use of video interactions to support new collaborative teamwork that goes far beyond the current video conferencing approach.” said Ken Davison, Chief Marketing Officer for Magor. “Today, we push further in this direction by extending our visual collaboration experience to the desktop, delivering a new standard for video interactions on multi-purpose PCs for Windows. In addition, the new suite of OnDemand services offers flexibility to end users with access to fully integrated capabilities that would otherwise be offered as entirely separate solutions."
A key component to the end user flexibility enabled by the Aerus SDP is the Aerus Media Engine (AME), which is built into every Aerus client. The AME is comprised of two key innovations:
"The AME enables us to take the visual collaboration experience we’ve delivered in dedicated appliances for meeting rooms and now extend it to the Windows desktop and to other operating systems and devices in the future," said Davison.
The Aerus desktop visual collaboration client is designed to meet the needs of knowledge workers who require access to people and resources in real time wherever, whenever and however they can get access to them. Current desktop clients constrain users to an inflexible workflow model at a time when flexibility is paramount for increasing productivity.
The Aerus SDP OnDemand service layer enables the abstraction of value-added services from the underlying visual collaboration clients, adding the flexibility to extend reach, choice and access to the services end users need at the time they need them.
Magor is announcing three new additions to the OnDemand service layer:
"This evolution of the Aerus SDP solves several long-standing limitations of traditional video conferencing regarding flexibility of deployment, media-stream quality, sharing collaborative material, scalability to reach large numbers of users and interoperability," said Davison. "Aerus frees customers to collaborate on their own terms and discover innovative new ways to improve workflow productivity by using video throughout their organizations."
Magor will showcase the Windows Aerus Client, Aerus Invite, Aerus OnScene, and Aerus WebCollab at the Enterprise Connect 2014 Conference and Expo March 17 – 20 in Orlando, FLA. The company will demonstrate the new capabilities during the conference at Booth #536.
Magor enables people to engage in high-quality visual conversations while simultaneously sharing, viewing and editing relevant collaborative material on desktops, laptops, tablets, smartphone applications, whiteboards and other devices. Magor fits any workflow so that users have the freedom to work together naturally anytime, regardless of location, network or device.
