BlueJeans and Dolby Partner, Simplify Purchasing with Rooms-as-a-Service

Blue Jeans Network, Inc. today announced its plan to offer BlueJeans Rooms-as-a-Service featuring Dolby Voice Room in the near future. BlueJeans Rooms-as-a-Service featuring Dolby Voice Room will be a new service-based subscription model for quickly adopting Dolby’s hardware with BlueJeans’ enterprise-grade cloud meetings platform.

The Room-as-a-Service model provides IT decision makers with the benefits of predictable pricing, a simplified approval process and the convenience of adding more rooms as needed, all from a single vendor. The offering will be sold directly or through channel resellers. Partners certified on BlueJeans Rooms will be included on the ‘BlueJeans Rooms Certified List’ and will work closely with the BlueJeans sales team in selling and deploying the solution for our customers.

Additional BlueJeans Rooms-as-a-Service featuring Dolby Voice Room features are expected to include:

  • A Single Device on the Table: BlueJeans Rooms’ calendar integration, room schedule display and one-touch join capability are beautifully presented on the Dolby Conference Phone’s touch-screen interface, eliminating the need to have additional tablets in the meeting room.
  • Quick Frame Whiteboard View: The Dolby 4K wide-angle camera provides exceptional whiteboard clarity and visibility to remote participants ­even when the whiteboard is adjacent to the camera and table.
  • Command and Control: Instead of requiring a PC in every room or huddle space, the Dolby Voice Room is powered by the Dolby Voice Hub, a unique connected appliance that serves as the management control center for each meeting space. This approach allows IT professionals to automate software and security updates centrally, eliminating the room-by-room updates required by competing tablet, PC or NUC-based solutions. Additionally, administrators can manage the room via remote access controls and leverage BlueJeans Command Center to analyze room system analytics and toggle manageability options.
