TAMPA, Fla., – February 4, 2014 – AVI-SPL, the world’s leading video communications partner, is pleased to announce the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued U.S. Patent 8,625,769 for the company’s VNOC Symphony management platform. The patent recognizes the system’s process workflow automation for the management and control of meetings.
Launching video conferencing calls, detecting system availability and maintaining equipment functionality are typical requirements for corporations utilizing collaboration solutions. When these conditions are not working in concert, the user experience suffers. Automating these activities is the ideal way to establish consistent behavior for collaborative solutions, provide optimal involvement for end users, and keep organizations focused on their core business needs.
AVI-SPL’s patented VNOC Symphony platform is the first software tool to automate the complex, backend processes needed to schedule, monitor and manage video conferencing and AV resources. Symphony allows users to quickly and easily schedule their own video meetings, survey available video resources, access reports and analytics, and connect with the VNOC for remote support.
“AVI-SPL is committed to being the leading video communications service provider on a global level. We strive to deliver differentiated solutions that address our customer’s complex collaboration requirements,” said Mike Brandofino, executive vice president of video and unified communications. “This patent award is a testament to the investments we have made on behalf of our customers and shows our commitment to enhancing the user experience regardless of what collaboration tool is being used.”
