SCOPIA Elite 5000 Series MCU

The new SCOPIA Elite 5000 Series is RADVISION’s next generation solution for high definition multiparty conferencing. Utilizing the latest in DSP technology, SCOPIA Elite delivers 1080p processing, telepresence connectivity, dynamic resource allocation, and individual video layouts per participant yielding uncompromised high definition support.

The new SCOPIA Elite 5000 Series can be configured from 10 to 30 ports of high definition Continuous Presence Scopia 5000providing a line of systems to suit a variety of applications and budgets.

Each system can also deliver four times the capacity by utilizing SCOPIA Elite’s dynamic resource allocation. This maximizes capacity for mixed endpoint environments without any system configuration changes. If users connect at less than HD, the extra processing power is available for additional capacity. This flexible model offers significant value and fast return on investment with up to 120 video conferencing ports per system.

SCOPIA Elite is the industry’s first standards based MCU to natively support advanced H.264 Scalable Video Coding (SVC) technology. RADVISION’s SVC technology provides a high quality experience over unmanaged networks such as the public Internet, particularly benefitting desktop video conferencing users on the road or teleworkers from their home offices. This approach provides the benefits of high error resiliency while maintaining full interoperability and high quality with conferencing and telepresence systems not currently using SVC.

Distributed networks of H.264 SVC interconnected Elite MCUs will also benefit from significantly better connections between the MCUs, even if the network paths are prone to errors. H.264 SVC ensures that network impediments do not interfere with having a high quality conferencing experience.

SCOPIA Elite was designed with feedback from users of many different brands and types of endpoints for usability and simplicity. Unique on-screen overlays, compatible with any conferencing endpoint, display a variety of information including video layout controls, recording and encrypted conference indications, and participant joining and leaving notifications. Video layouts are also customizable per conference participant allowing each user to have a personal “view” of the meeting.

SCOPIA Elite’s Advanced Telecommunications Computing Architecture (ATCA) delivers investment protection through a future proof platform. Utilizing ATCA architecture delivers high reliability, availability and serviceability, while incorporating the latest technology for high speed processing and interconnections. The ATCA implementation is designed for the stringent requirements of service providers and demanding enterprises.
