Control Any Conference Room from Your iPad™ with New App Configured by IVCi
HAUPPAUGE, NY - March 22, 2011 - IVCi, LLC (www.ivci.com), a leading integrator of high-definition video conferencing solutions, telepresence systems, audio visual equipment, and managed conferencing services, announced today that it has expanded its Audio Visual control solutions to include an iPad based application. The new app allows the user to control any AV (audio visual) integrated conference room via an on-screen GUI that resembles a traditional AV control device.
IVCi designs and programs user-friendly GUIs that provide complete control of the audio visual rooms that it integrates. These environments bring together video conferencing and telepresence technology, advanced audio visual equipment, special lighting, and shading. IVCi partners with AV manufacturers that offer conference room management applications for the iPad and configures its enhanced Customer Control Platform (CSP) directly on the device.
"Traditionally we have customized our customers' GUIs with hardware provided by Crestron, AMX or other manufacturers. With the proliferation of Apple's iPad within the business environment and the new apps from our manufacturing partners, IVCi can now complement a control system implementation with a GUI that runs directly on the iPad," said IVCi's SVP of AV integration Tim Hennen.
Just as with any other app for the iPad, the user easily downloads the application online. IVCi's Audio Visual team then uses its knowledge of the integration of the various systems in the room program the application to the customer's specific environment. The user then touches the app icon to access an interface that closely resembles their touch panel. Users then proceed to control the room just as they would with a custom touch panel controller.
IVCi's Audio Visual Division will program the iPad right along with the hardware based touch panels. The result is an interface that is easy to use and navigate across both devices.

The MVE Difference
IVCi Senior Vice President of Managed Conferencing Services, Chris Böttger, discusses the benefits of MVE, IVCi's Managed Video Experience. IVCi's MVE expands the traditional definition of managed conferencing services to focus on the successful application of video conferencing. Previously these services have focused solely on the technical aspects of monitoring the customer's video endpoints, infrastructure, and network. IVCi's MVE, however, goes beyond simple monitoring to deliver an optimal meeting experience every time.
