Actis Technologies, Indias most trusted audio visual specialists, have launched the countrys first ever High Definition mobile video-conferencing solution the Actis MVU Series (MVU-1000P, MVU-1100MP, MVU-2000MP and MVU-2100MP). These self-sufficient, integrated videoconferencing systems are mounted on a trolley with castors and allow businesses and institutions an unprecedented amount of flexibility. They can invest in one system for multiple rooms as the system can be moved from room-to-room on castors without disassembly.

The MVU series videoconferencing trolley offers an unmatched High-Definition (1080p at 30-frames per-second) viewing experience and includes an integrated display (single or dual monitors), camera, codec, mike and speakers in the unit. Preconfigured to make Videoconferencing calls within minutes (has ISDN and IP support); the MVU series is extremely cost-effective because of the greater bandwidth flexibility it offers and its adherence to open standards. Ideal screen height enables excellent eye-contact between participants and a powerful remote driven interface makes operation extremely intuitive.

The Actis MVU Series is targeted at the telepresence and video conferencing industry which is fast becoming a powerful business tool in India. While the global industry is poised to grow into a USD$4.7 Billion by 2014, Asia Pacific is expected to contribute USD$1.7 Billion, a recent Frost & Sullivan report revealed. With Actis new MVU Series Mobile Videoconferencing System, organizations can enjoy more flexibility than what their specialized video conferencing rooms can offer.

Commenting on the launch, Abhimanyu Gupta, Director, Actis Technologies said, At Actis we keep our customers business needs at the top of our priorities. Several clients wanted more flexibility from their video conferencing systems hence we addressed this by designing a mobile system that delivers quality, flexibility, seamless collaboration and ease-of-use.

Our new mobile Videoconferencing System provides customers with a great degree of flexibility because they have point-to-point and multi-point capability, can adapt to various degrees of bandwidth availability and use open standards to provide easy compatibility with existing systems. Most importantly however, it allows video collaboration to move beyond dedicated conferencing rooms.

While the Actis MVU Series allows easy integration with any existing or old video conferencing solution, it functions well with as little as 128 Kbps upto 6 Mbps bandwidth speeds, ensuring cost-effectiveness in operation and real time PC content sharing.

The Actis MVU Series will benefit enterprises with organizational and sales teams across locations in applications such as customer interaction, recruitment interviews, internal reviews, cross-location training etc. It is also suitable for educational institutions where it allows sharing of one system between multiple rooms. Expected to hit the market this September, the new MVUs will be priced in the range of Rs.7 lakh and Rs.14 lakh.

Actis MVU series models range comprises MVU-1000P, MVU-1100MP, MVU- 2000MP and MVU-2100MP for single to dual displays and with single to multi-point system features.
