VEEDEEO upgrades its system to simplify user experience

As part of the continuous R&D effort to make VEEDEEO the most innovative video cloud platform in the market, we have proceeded to a major upgrade at the beginning of this week.

As a result, the VEEDEEO system is now easier and simpler and has gained several improvements and convenient new features.

Improvements

1. Refreshed call interface

Simpler, cleaner and 100% user friendly. We understood the last call menu was quite confusing with so many button options, so we decided to let only the most used buttons visible during the call and arranged all other options on the new improved menu sidebar. This sidebar menu, on the left, will also be always visible so no feature is missed (some users were unaware of the former sidebar menu because that was hidden).

2. Screen-sharing performance better than ever

Faster and optimized so users can share any content on their screens during the video meetings with the best possible results. And to all internet users fancying Mozilla Firefox browser above all others, news are good. Is now possible to start a screen-share using this browser (no plugins needed).

3. Layout design more suitable to user demands

Users can now change the layout regardlessly of the number of participants, as well as enable or disable VAD at any moment during the call. This means VAD no longer turns automatic in meetings with 5 or more participants.

Brand new

4. VEEDEEO turns multi-language

We are giving the first steps into making VEEDEEO a multi-language platform. We have added two new languages beside English: is now possible to use the platform in Portuguese or Spanish. Boas notícias! Users can change the language preference at anytime, even right before entering the call (this will not affect the preference of the organizer).

Multilanguage

5. Audio-only participants can now watch the video meeting

Just a matter of choice. If a user doesn’t have the necessary gear or doesn’t want to participate in a video meeting, he or she can listen to and watch it anyway in audio-only mode.

6. Testing audio to make it flawless

When onboarding a call, users can select the audio output (speakers) and test the audio before the meeting. Any technical flaw can be therefore identified and corrected in advance so as not to affect the video session.

7. Registered Video Systems can be called from the meeting interface

Global Video Directory is now integrated in the call interface, allowing users to add / call registered video systems during the meeting. Registered systems must be online.

8. Permission to speak during a meeting

Also we have added the Raise hand (or Request to speak) feature to help hosts to moderate participants and conduct a truly productive video meeting. This new feature can be found on the left sidebar menu.

VEEDEEO introduces the global video network

It’s official!

VEEDEEO has released the first global network for enterprise video communications on the 8th of February during a webinar to a large online audience.

During an informal conversation, Carlos Tavares, CEO and founder of VEEDEEO, introduced the network, explaining its importance and utility for companies with video conferencing equipments. The recording of the online event is available to replay in this link.

The good thing about the VEEDEEO’s global network is it solves problems caused by firewalls, allowing direct video calls between two video conferencing systems – internal or external – with the exact same easiness as we make phone calls. Each equipment must be registered to get a video number. Also it works as a global directory, where users can make their equipment’s video numbers visible (optional) to other users, thus making it easier to call any equipment.

As the network keeps growing every day, companies find this service quite useful to facilitate communications with other companies, saving them from complex configurations and other technical headaches.

This service is free and unlimited. To start making direct 1-to-1 video calls, it’s only necessary to create an account and then register each video equipment on the VEEDEEO cloud directory.

VEEDEEO creates the first free video communications directory in the world

This new global directory makes video communications as simple as traditional phone calls and represents a step forward into a trully video connected world.

VEEDEEO has released the very first global video directory for video conferencing systems. This service is available to any company, entirely for free.

The VEEDEEO network works as a global and independent directory in the cloud where companies register their video equipments, independently of manufacturer – supporting Cisco, Polycom, Avaya, Huawei and others. Each video system gets a unique and global video number. With this number it is possible to make and receive video calls directly between registered systems, with the same ease as doing a normal phone call.

“One of the main causes that make video calling so painful is that there is no centralized system to distribute unique video numbers to all video endpoints and handle the necessary network connections”, says Carlos Tavares, the founder and CEO of VEEDEEO. “Making video calls between systems in different networks is often extremely difficult because it involves complex configurations and other time consuming security issues that require technical expertise”.

To solve this problem – and make video communications truly universal – VEEDEEO has created a central cloud system, based in market standards, that free companies from the need to have additional hardware to make external video calls. Each video conferencing system works as a video endpoint in the network. It also ensures the best security for the corporate networks when it comes to video communications. The VEEDEEO platform handles the public and private IP conversions (NAT Traversal) of all registered video systems, safeguarding their privacy.

The VEEDEEO cloud platform is like a bridge between video systems. Any company can start a video call by simply dialing the 6 digit video number and wait for the destination to answer the call – all in seconds.

“We say this network is like the yellow pages for video conferencing, where any company can register free and give use to its video conferencing equipments with the entire world”, concludes Carlos Tavares.

This new platform has as primary goal to change the video communications landscape and to contribute to a closer video-connected world.

To register in the VEEDEEO network companies can create their free account at http://register.veedeeo.me and follow the step-by-step instructions provided.

Registrations in the VEEDEEO cloud are unlimited, meaning companies can register all their video conferencing systems at no costs.

Become part of the network. Partner with VEEDEEO and start building the directory for your own customers.
