Stampede’s Kevin Kelly noted that Stampede dealers now can offer a viable high quality conferencing option to customers who do not want to invest in a traditional video conferencing system.
“Vaddio’s EasyUSB is a game-changing product line that allows dealers to offer a compelling cost-effective way to build an enterprise-quality video conferencing system with affordable soft codecs like Microsoft Lync, Skype, Face Time, and Google Talk," said Kelly. "Together with our other video conferencing solutions, specifically those from Sony and Radvision, Stampede now offers an unprecedented range of offerings for all applications, platforms, and price points. What’s more, every one of our system solutions comes backed with the necessary engineering expertise and product knowledge required to make every solution we sell an easy turnkey experience for customers.”
Introduced in March 2012, the Vaddio EasyUSB line of video conferencing tools brings to market the IT VAR and ProAV quality computer peripherals IT professionals need to transform their personal computer into an effective, affordable meeting room system for environments that range from a small video conferencing system all the way up to a large integrated lecture capture classroom, according to the company.
The line includes an HD USB PTZ camera, a USB audio mixer/amplifier, USB microphones, and a web based room control system. The solution also includes an AV bridge that allows legacy and traditional AV systems to connect to the audio and video inputs on computers through a USB connection.
Vaddio’s EasyUSB tools are based on UVC/UAC USB standards, eliminating the need for custom software drivers or a particular OS to be installed on a MAC or PC – so they work seamlessly with any soft client conferencing system including Skype, Google+, Scopia, Movi and Microsoft Lync, as well as lecture capture software systems such as Tegrity and Panopto.
