Google’s Duo will rebrand as Meet with the features from both apps. But Google’s Meet’s will remain Meet. Yes, there will be just two Google Meet apps: Meet (let’s call it 1.0, the Meet app to be soon phased out) and the new Meet (let’s call it “2.0,” the new Meet app that combines both Meet and Duo).
According to a marketing email from Aurora Multimedia, Aurora’s VPX 1GBPS AV-over-IP solutions claim to be the “solution for Crestron NVX lead time issues.” The email also says Aurora’s solution can perform everything Crestron’s NVX does and more at a lower cost.
