Pexip adds Microsoft Lync integration

AUTHOR: Inavate

Pexip has announced the new features of its Pexip Infinity Version 6, which offers added interoperability with Microsoft Lync.

Pexip Infinity's Virtual Meeting Rooms (VMRs) now publish presence information, which helps users connect to a VMR by showing which VMRs are currently available. In addition, Pexip Infinity now allows custom avatars (Lync pictures) on a per-meeting-room basis. This allows users to customise the appearance of their personal meeting rooms in other users' Lync contact lists.

Pexip Infinity provides native interoperability with Microsoft Lync 2010, 2013, and Lync Online/Office 365, where Infinity supports Microsoft technologies such as RTVideo, SVC, and RDP.

In addition to Microsoft Lync enhancements, Pexip Infinity Version 6 offers new security features designed to meet U.S. federal government requirements. These include Active Directory integration, role-based authentication, and secure NTP/SNMP to provide network and system administrators with the most reliable security tools for managing, monitoring, and controlling Pexip's meeting software.
