With so much happening at the show, it’s easy to lose track of some of the announcements and information coming out of Enterprise Connect. We’ve compiled a quick list of some of the announcements that you should be paying attention to:
AudioCodes Showcases WebRTC to Microsoft Lync Connectivity
AudioCodes, a provider of converged voice solutions that enable enterprises and service providers to transition to all-IP voice networks, showcased the first of its kind connectivity between WebRTC to Lync at the Enterprise Connect show. This WebRTC to Lync connectivity, allowing for innovative, user-friendly business to customer services, utilizes AudioCodes’ Mediant Session Border Controller (SBC), allowing Lync users to be accessible via the Web using a standard Web browser that supports WebRTC.
Enterprises and contact centers using Lync can now connect web users to their Lync network for a multitude of use cases including customers calling from a company’s website, calling from a link in an employee’s email signature, or joining a meeting from a URL instead of having to install a software client for participating in a collaboration session.

Array Telepresence Debuts System for Immersive Videoconferencing
Array Telepresence, a start-up telepresence solution provider, debuted a new system that enables immersive telepresence in typical conference rooms using an organization’s existing videoconferencing system. The Equal-i DX Camera Module and Equal-i 2S Image Processor use Equal-i Technology to improve the quality of traditional videoconferencing systems. The Equal-i technology brings the furthest participants “up close and personal” increasing the pixel count on the farthest person by 6.5 times that of a conventional Pan-Tilt-Zoom videoconferencing camera. The system improves the meeting format, conceals the camera, and improves the eye-line. The system also powers dual displays with HD video using a single videoconferencing codec and bitstream, creating a wide-format, immersive view of the remote scene with no discernable impact on latency.
