Microsoft Teams Rooms and Surface Hub 2 Gets Pexip CVI

Pexip has announced it will offer free Cloud Video Interop (CVI) services for customers of Microsoft Teams Rooms and Surface Hub 2 systems. The offer is available directly via Pexip and participating partners and is valid for new customers of Microsoft Teams Rooms and Surface Hub 2 solutions.

Cloud Video Interop enables third-party video conferencing and other non-Microsoft systems to join Microsoft Teams meetings. Enterprise users can choose whichever technology they have on hand to join. Typically, organizations have traditional video conferencing systems from vendors such as Cisco and Poly in their large, high-profile rooms, but have recently started equipping many new rooms with more affordable systems such as Microsoft Teams Rooms. These video-capable meeting room solutions are not generally compatible, but CVI enables all of them to seamlessly work together.

Pexip is one of only three certified and Microsoft-supported CVI providers. With the myriad of vendors available to the enterprise, it is becoming increasingly difficult to navigate and to understand which solutions work with each other. Pexip works closely with Microsoft to provide solutions that complement the company’s collaboration offerings, and Pexip CVI for Microsoft Teams is one of these.
