Avaya has added new capabilities to its video collaboration platform Avaya Spaces. This includes a new 61-participant “concert” view where the primary speaker is large in the centre of the platform.
Other additions are an enhanced video layouts to accommodate different meeting types such as panel discussions, training, project planning and interviews. There is also new collaboration control to accommodate various use cases – such as giving students the ability to post completed assignments to their teacher or chat with them outside of class time.
Avaya Spaces also now includes intelligent moderation including smart mute, host control of participant cameras and microphones, and “raise hand” features. These are designed to provide effective management of sessions to minimise disruptions while maintaining whatever level of interactivity the meeting host would like.
Anthony Bartolo, EVP and chief product officer, Avaya, explained, “Today’s business environment has reshaped how organisations, customers and individuals work and collaborate no matter where teams are located, but it is not enough to just remote-enable people, we need to create the new future of work.”
Avaya Spaces provides a cloud meeting and team collaboration solution that enables people and organisations to connect and collaborate remotely – and goes beyond integrating chat, voice, video, online meetings and content sharing. The platform is used by educational institutions, healthcare, government agencies, and businesses of all sizes around the globe. It is available in nearly 100 countries and is offered with Avaya OneCloud subscription, as well as on a standalone basis.
Avaya recently integrated cloud AI solutions from NVIDIA to help increase the impact and value of visual, audible and collaborative experiences through the Avaya Spaces platform. The new integration helps customers benefit from background noise removal, virtual green screen backgrounds, rich presenter features enabling presenters to be overlaid on top of presentation content, as well as live transcriptions that can recognise and differentiate voices.
