Advanced Media Design Inc. offers a new, scalable videoconferencing system priced at $29,900. Designed for multiple participants in a business or education environment, MediaPOINTE SystemTwo is a self-contained system that plugs into an ISDN or IP-based network and includes a camera, monitor, and conferencing software.
“SystemTwo is unique in the industry because it provides an easy-to-use interface in an economical system while offering nearly the same level of performance as fully integrated, high-end media collaboration systems,” said Steve Villoria, the company’s president and chief executive.
MediaPOINTE SystemTwo works in virtually any size venue, the company says. Its features include collaborative on-screen annotation, remote-end system control if those systems are MediaPOINTE environments, and support for all types of display devices, including computers, electronic whiteboards, and audio-visual sources (VCRs, DVD players, cameras, document cameras, etc.). The system also outputs a multimedia archival feed in a variety of video formats, so users can store and play back sessions.
