UC Workspace’s new UCC product is called WEAV; more information is near the bottom of this product announcement but read this first to understand its positioning.
UC Workspace jumped on the scene a few years ago with a universal UX for all collaboration boards. Called Quicklaunch, it’s the maiden product of UC Workspace that allows users to securely start a meeting or digital call, regardless of collaboration platform, with a single click. Once in a meeting, users can use Quicklaunch to control virtually every aspect of the meeting as well as launch apps and access and share files. Quicklaunch supports all the major meeting provider tools such as Skype and Zoom as well as a broad array of hardware from manufacturers such as Avocor, NEC and Dell. After a meeting is over, Quicklaunch securely erases residual content from the meeting room computer, making Quicklaunch the first choice for highly secure and regulated environments.
New features and benefits of Quicklaunch version 4.0 include:
- Functional enhancements to Tabbed and Flat mode
- Added meeting provider features and support
- Numerous additional meeting control settings
- New capture card and camera support
- Configuration and integration with UC Central and WEAV (in preview — see more below)
So, that brings us to UC Central, which is a cloud-based meeting room control and insights hub that will help customers monitor and control their meeting rooms while providing insights that will help them maximize meeting space utilization and productivity.
Features and benefits of UC Central include:
- Centrally control the settings all Quicklaunch enabled rooms across an organization
- Monitor the health of meeting rooms and connected devices
- Control the settings of a limited set of meeting room devices
