MOSCOW, Russia, April 2, 2013 – SPIRIT DSP, the world’s #1 voice and video over IP engines provider serving more than 1 billion users in 100+ countries, announced today that TMC, a global media company, has named SPIRIT’s videoconferencing software application, VideoMost Space, as a recipient of its 2012 Unified Communications Product of the Year Award sponsored by INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine.
VideoMost Space is a downloadable multi-point videoconferencing software application that can run on enterprise-premise servers for tighter control and administration or at service provider, or telco-hosted data centers. VideoMost Space complements VideoMost web-version product, delivering high-quality multi-user high-margin software-only videoconferencing for telecom operators, service providers, enterprises and E-learning organizations. VideoMost product allows telcos and ISPs to effectively compete with OTT-services (Skype, Google Talk) and videoconferencing service providers (WebEx, Microsoft Lync, GoToMeeting).
“We are pleased to grant a Unified Communications Product of the Year Award to SPIRIT DSP for VideoMost Space,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “It is hard to exaggerate the important role that modern VVoIP multipoint communication products, such as VideoMost Space, bring to businesses, and to service providers and telcos that are seeking to add valuable over the top services to their product portfolio. Based on SPIRIT’s world-recognized TeamSpirit Voice and Video Engines, VideoMost Space gains a commendable position in the global market.”
“The recognition of VideoMost Space as the Product of the Year by INTERNET TELEPHONY emphasizes that SPIRIT DSP once again innovates product that meets the demand from telcos and service providers to implement high-value business services,” said SPIRIT’s Chairman Andrew Sviridenko. “VideoMost lets service providers generate new revenue, lower operating costs, reduce churn and increase customer satisfaction of their own-branded service offerings, while competing effectively against Microsoft Lync and Webex products.”
VideoMost is an award-winning massively multipoint web-based videoconferencing software-only product, enabling telecom carriers, service/SaaS providers and enterprises to deliver a self-branded videoconferencing service from the cloud or with on-premise installation. The software is powered by SPIRIT’s TeamSpirit Conferencing , which embraces scalable H.264SVC and VP8 video codecs and SPIRIT’s HD-quality IP-MRTM wideband voice codec (IETF RFC 6262) that automatically adapts video quality to bandwidth and processor power available. VideoMost delivers up to 30 fps and 720p HD-quality calling for each participant in a conference while requiring only 512 kbps of bandwidth.
The VideoMost software server supports an unprecedented 1000 concurrent video channels per $4000 PC hardware server, dramatically cutting down service providers’ costs for hardware server infrastructure. VideoMost is uniquely universal, requiring no special hardware equipment to participate (just internet access, a webcam, a mic or headset) and no registration, allowing participants anywhere to start a videoconference instantly on their PCs, Macs and iPads. It also includes corporate controls with single authorization and corporate contact lists; desktop/file sharing, recording and messaging capabilities; LDAP support; integration with emails and calendars; SIP support for legacy videoconferencing endpoints; presence and more functions.
