Fuzebox Upgrades its Android App to Use New OS, Device Cameras

FuzeBox has long been a video conference call provider and has now released a system for Android users called Fuze Meeting. The multi-party, 720p HD videos work via 4G, 3G, or Wi-Fi on Android OS 2.2 (Froyo) or OS 3.0 (Honeycomb) enabled devices. The Android version has been upgraded for a cleaner interface so users won’t have trouble on smaller screens. It’s good to know that all of these front-facing cameras will be put to good use and not just a novelty factor for carriers to parade in front of consumers.

Fuzebox is Open for Business, and Only Business

Fuzebox goes on to claim that they have “the only collaboration software suite capable of flawlessly showcasing the stunning speed and HD capabilities the [4G] will offer.” After such an exciting statement it’s disappointing to hear that the software suite will only be available to businesses and not the everyday consumer. Of course, if you would like your business to purchase the software then contact [email protected]. The full press release can be seen at the end of this article.

Would you be interested in Fuzebox bringing the multi-party video conferencing to the everyday user in a “lite” version?

Fuze Meeting Turns the iPad 2 and Android Honeycomb Tablets into a Virtual Conference Room with Multi-Party HD Video Conferencing

Fuze Meeting becomes the world’s first HD video collaboration service to connect every tablet, Smartphone and desktop operating system, including iPad, Android 2.2 and 3.0 Tablets and phones, Mac and PC.

SAN FRANCISCO – March 30, 2011 – FuzeBox, the leader in mobile HD video collaboration, today announces multi-party HD video conferencing, as a major update to its industry-leading web conferencing product Fuze Meeting, which brings people together into an immersive virtual collaborative environment, regardless of their device. Fuze Meeting’s new multi-party HD video conferencing comes complete with an improved user interface, support for all major smart phone, tablet and computer operating systems, and larger set of real-time multimedia sharing and annotation options.

Now, with support for even the latest devices, including the iPad 2 and the Motorola Xoom, anyone can conduct a video meeting hosted in the cloud over WiFi or 3G, from anywhere. The powerful new user interface allows either the content or video conference to take center stage, while meeting controls minimize into the background, for a truly immersive experience.

“Physical presence through video conferencing has revolutionized the way we conduct meetings and the efficiency with which we collaborate,” says Jeff Cavins, CEO of FuzeBox. “This newest iteration of Fuze Meeting allows teams to collaborate as if they were together in person, using any device from any location.”

Fuze Meeting’s innovation moves beyond the current video collaboration space. The multi-party HD video conferencing is delivered at 720P, while maintaining the highest fidelity at low latency by dynamically adapting to a user’s available bandwidth with the Vidyo Adaptive Video Layering technology, using H.264 SVC. Fuze Meeting’s multi-party HD video conferencing is available for up to 10 video participants at once.

Fuze Meeting’s technology is designed to make online meetings simple and intuitive, yet powerful enough to connect enterprise users face-to-face on any screen with a full suite of collaboration tools at their fingertips. Since 1998, FuzeBox has been awarded 23 patents around telephony and collaboration with an additional 42 pending.
