BT Conferencing, a provider of audio, video and web collaboration services, has launched a video conference application for the Android and iOS based smartphones and tablet.
The new app, BT Engage Meeting Mobile, is a schedule and automation tool that makes video conference calling easier than ever before. It allows the host to control their video conference equipment, quickly launch a meeting, end a meeting and extend a meeting time using a mobile device.
It is compatible with all the major video conferencing manufacturers including Cisco, LifeSize, Polycom and Tandberg.
The app works together with BT Engage Meeting Manager, a web-based tool that comes with an intuitive conference wizard, meeting templates, custom directories, B2B scheduling, iCal integration and an extensive suite of online reporting tools.
The most powerful feature of the app is its ability to put conference control into the hands of the meeting host for in-room conference control, as well as access on the go.
Jeff Prestel, chief executive officer, BT Conferencing, said: “This mobile app is the first of its kind and provides our customers with scheduling and call control options, even when they are away from their desk.”
To access the application, search for BT Engage within iTunes or via the app store on a chosen device. The app is free to download and is available now.
This new app follows the successful launch of BT MeetMe Mobile Controller for audio conferencing, which has been available since September 2010.
