InFocus Introduces Cloud-based ConX Group Video Conferencing Service

New video collaboration service is optimized for free ConX WebDial browser plug-in and InFocus Mondopad

PORTLAND, Ore. - January 21, 2014 - Visual communications industry pioneer InFocus Corporation (www.infocus.com) is expanding its offerings today with the launch of ConX (kh-NEX'), its cloud-based group video conferencing service.


InFocus ConX requires no extra hardware investment and enables an unlimited number of participants in different locations to take part in a video conference using standardized SIP or H.323 video conferencing devices. The user experience is similar to a traditional audio conference; one dials an assigned ConX number from the video device and enters a secure pin code to complete the call. The ConX service then translates all the different feeds and delivers each video stream in a separate window on the same screen.

"ConX makes group video conferencing a viable option for almost any organization because it is affordable and easy to use. It empowers them to connect and collaborate with employees, partners or customers in a much more engaging and productivity-boosting way," said Raymond Yu, president of InFocus. "Historically, most video calls were reserved for groups who used the same kind of video conferencing, within the same organization. Now groups from different organizations, on different systems, and even using the Web, can connect using ConX."

Through the cloud, ConX seamlessly connects all parties, whether they are using an InFocus Mondopad, a video phone or a video conference system from Cisco, LifeSize or Polycom. Those who do not have a SIP or H.323 device can connect to the video meeting using InFocus' free WebDial browser plug-in or can participate with audio-only using a telephone. Users can also join the meeting with audio only, for those participants without video conferencing devices. Additionally, the InFocus ConX service can easily connect with third-party video conferencing applications such as Jabber.

Yu continued, "From our projectors to our large format collaboration displays like Mondopad one of our core goals at InFocus is to continually deliver products that help people collaborate in productive ways. ConX is a service that continues in that tradition and moves us closer to our goal."
