Focus Arena - A new VC solution combining Microsoft Teams Room, Zoom Rooms & more into one package
By: VideoCentric Ltd
VideoCentric has used its wealth of integration expertise to launch a hybrid solution that switches One PTZ Camera (with either 5x or 12x zoom), One set of Wireless Microphones and One Speaker seamlessly between platforms on demand. The single Touch Controller is switched between Microsoft's MTR interface and Zoom's Room interface and allows for integrated camera control.
VideoCentric's marketing states that it is …….."As simple as 1-2-3". But what does that mean in practice? David Shimell, Sales Director for VideoCentric commented: "Users don't care what is going on behind the scenes, as long as it works. They get invited to a Teams or Zoom meeting and simply want to join it; not to be told they don't have the right licences, or they need to contact IT, or wait for two or three restarts to occur". "So, we set about developing a single solution based on components that were already certified by Microsoft and Zoom and where we could add our little bit of magic, based on a simple 1-2-3 approach"

The name is derived from its "FOCUS" on Microsoft Teams Room (MTR) and Zoom Rooms capabilities for primary meeting room usage, whereas the "ARENA" represents the wide selection of desktop Apps that employees or guests might wish to use instead, such as Webex, GoTo Meeting, Lifesize, Google Meet, BlueJeans, Pexip, Teams desktop, Zoom desktop or others, whether they be pre-installed on a meeting room NUC, an Interactive Whiteboard or brought into the room by participants on their own Windows laptops or Macbooks.
