Cisco has introduced the ability to record and search through TelePresence conferences, along with a new user interface for the big-screen videoconferencing suite.
On Thursday, the networking firm announced TelePresence Content Server 5.0, which includes the option of recording meetings at 1080p resolution and at 30 frames per second. Cisco also unveiled its MXE 3500 Media Experience Engine, an appliance that integrates Cisco Pulse analytics functionality for video searches — works and speakers are automatically tagged, the company said.
"As the market transition to video takes place globally in the enterprise, we believe it's critical that our customers have the ability to easily work across the video workflow: from the creation and production of video, to consumption and sharing capabilities," Cisco TelePresence chief Marthin De Beer said in a statement.
The MXE 3500 also includes a new browser-based interface for post-processing of videos, along with live-streaming capabilities that work with Cisco's new digital signage products. The new functionality will roll out in the second quarter of this year, Cisco said.
Also on Thursday, Cisco announced a new 47-inch TelePresence end-point that will support TelePresence Touch, a new touch-screen interface for the videoconferencing suite. The endpoint will go on sale in the summer. Pricing has not yet been announced for the new products.
