Count on Cisco for Highly Secure, Scalable, and Reliable Service: Cisco WebEx web and video conferencing solutions help reduce costs and allow IT to focus on core priorities. Meeting Center is delivered as software as a service (SaaS) through the Cisco® Collaboration Cloud, and is easy to roll out and scale as your organization grows. The Cisco Collaboration Cloud is a global, enterprise-scale network designed specifically for highly secure delivery of on-demand applications. It offers a scalable architecture, consistent availability, and multilayer tenant security validated by rigorous independent audits, including SSAE-16 and ISO 27001.
Video Conferencing: Increase engagement and build trust, just as you would in person, by inviting others to join meetings with their own standards-based video system, including Microsoft Skype for Business. Everyone can enjoy business-quality video at up to 720p resolution and content at up to 1080p resolution. With integrated HD video, view the active speaker and up to seven participants.
Engaging User Interface: A modern interface provides a clean and intuitive user experience. Increase interaction with others with your own avatar for times when you are not sharing your video.
Document, Application, and Screen Sharing: Share content or your entire screen with remote attendees in real time. Attendees can take control and share content, or annotate yours. On the go, share your screen from Android devices and content from your iPhone or iPad. Figure 2 shows content being shared with the active speaker and other participants.
Personal Rooms: Meet even faster in your own permanent, personal room. Schedule ahead or leave your room open, lock it, and easily admit people waiting in your lobby. If you are unavailable to attend your meeting, choose an alternate host to start and run the meeting in your personal room. Save time and schedule meetings from Cisco Spark™, join Cisco WebEx meetings from your Cisco Spark app, or easily link directly to Cisco Spark rooms to continue your conversations after the meeting ends.
Interactive Multimedia Experience: Engage your audience by incorporating multimedia into your presentations, including PowerPoint, Flash animations, audio, and video files.
Integrated Audi: Offer an interactive meeting experience with Cisco WebEx integrated audio— offered through the Cisco WebEx public switched telephone network (PSTN) or Cloud Connected Audio administered by your company or a certified service provider. You can also use a range of third-party audio options. Choose toll or toll-free, or call-in or call-back. Or give attendees the option to connect using voice over IP (VoIP) or your computer’s built-in audio. Wideband audio support using VoIP provides outstanding audio quality— even over low-bandwidth networks.
Call-Me: Have your meeting call you. Simply enter your phone number or preferred video system when the meeting begins, and the meeting will call you—no dialing, no passcodes.
