Pexip to Offer Free Cloud Video Interop Capabilities for Microsoft Teams Rooms and Surface Hub 2 Customers

OSLO, Norway – July 11, 2019 – Pexip, a leading provider of video conferencing and collaboration solutions for the enterprise, has announced it will offer free Cloud Video Interop (CVI) services for customers of Microsoft Teams Rooms and Surface Hub 2 systems. The offer is available directly via Pexip and participating partners and is valid for new customers of Microsoft Teams Rooms and Surface Hub 2 solutions.

“The enterprise communications market is becoming increasingly complex, and we realize there is a great need to simplify it for most enterprises. As we are partners with Microsoft and see the company’s meeting room solutions gain tremendous popularity, we collaborate to make the meeting environment easier to navigate for everyday users,” said Tom-Erik Lia, Chief Commercial Officer, Pexip. “With this offering, we make it a no-brainer for enterprises to enable their existing systems to join Microsoft Teams meetings hosted via either Microsoft Teams Rooms or the new Surface Hub 2.”

Cloud Video Interop enables third-party video conferencing and other non-Microsoft systems to join Microsoft Teams meetings. Enterprise users can choose whichever technology they have on hand to join. Typically, organizations have traditional video conferencing systems from vendors such as Cisco and Poly in their large, high-profile rooms, but have recently started equipping many new rooms with more affordable systems such as Microsoft Teams Rooms. These video-capable meeting room solutions are not generally compatible, but CVI enables all of them to seamlessly work together. […]
