If you’re looking for effective, interactive video communication, a company called TrueConf makes it simple to connect desktops, mobiles, phones, H.323/SIP endpoints and much more across your entire organization. RewardExpert had the opportunity to speak with TrueConf Chief Business Development Officer, Dmitry Odintsov, about what sets TrueConf apart from other businesses offering video conferencing and how it can help business owners save time and money.
Quality is Key
TrueConf provides award-winning 4K video conferencing. According to Odintsov, their on-premises video conferencing system, TrueConf Server, “utilizes SVC technology, which guarantees the best possible video quality on every device and channel. TrueConf Server runs autonomously within the company’s network; you have complete control over your communications. In addition, all communications are encrypted using AES.”
He stressed the importance of quality, which is something that many people underestimate when it comes to video conferencing. “Proper webcam and speakers make a huge difference; even if your video conferencing quality is great, you can spoil the impression by poor video quality or distorted sound.”
How it Stands Apart
A unique feature of TrueConf’s web conferencing is that their server is designed for group video conferencing in private networks at any level of complexity. “TrueConf Server guarantees secure, reliable corporate communication, and is easy to deploy, scale and integrate with LDAP, corporate PBX or SIP video conferencing endpoints. A free version, called TrueConf Server Free, is suited for all video conferencing modes with up to 12 participants. This includes client applications for any platforms, a range of collaboration tools, support for WebRTC conferences and full interoperability with SIP/H.323 equipment,” explained Odintsov.
“We also provide software solutions for conference rooms (TrueConf Terminal, TrueConf Tracker, TrueConf Weathervane), contact centers and video banking (TrueConf Kiosk), large corporate organizations (TrueConf Enterprise).”
Saving Money and Time
Odintsov said that the company’s customers can save a lot of time and money with TrueConf Server administration. “TrueConf Server can be deployed in 15 minutes and does not require regular monitoring or manual settings. In addition, TrueConf provides complete interoperability with H.323/SIP endpoints, so you do not need to waste your time on complicated setups and tests.”
Also, Odintsov notes that compared to other organization’s offerings, the ease of administration, responsive technical support and high quality video conferencing help make TrueConf stand out. “TrueConf Server can be installed in 15 minutes and is extremely easy to administer. We comply with all international standards and, what’s more important, natively support SIP/H.323 protocols, while Skype for Business requires additional external gateways to do the same.
Moreover, TrueConf provides infinite scalability opportunities: users can host hundreds of conferences and thousands of users on a regular PC, while server instances can be connected.”
In addition, Odintsov highlighted some of the other benefits of TrueConf’s services:
- provides 4K video calls and conferences
- has infinite video layouts
- hosts more users on-screen
- allows more attendees in group conferences
- supports conferences on several monitors
- provides TrueConf Server Free – a free version for 12 user accounts
How it All Began
TrueConf was founded in 2003 and is now one of the largest vendors of video conferencing and collaboration solutions in Eastern Europe. It was the first to introduce a range of unique projects to the video conferencing market. Odintsov described some of the company’s accomplishments. “In 2013, TrueConf demonstrated 3D video conferencing. In 2014, the company announced support for 4K group video conferences. TrueConf also deployed world’s first free enterprise Unified Communications system for 1 million users in Russia. In 2015, TrueConf demonstrated world’s first 4K point-to-point video call.
In March 2016, rAVe Pubs awarded TrueConf The Best New Video Conferencing Product at ISE 2016. In August 2016, Aragon Research named TrueConf a 2016 Hot Vendor in video conferencing. In 2017, TrueConf acquired Unitsolutions, AV integrator. In 2018, TrueConf team has pioneered one of the world’s first Android video conferencing applications with support for Android TV.” And the list is sure to go on and on.
