I have a movi/jabber environment and VCS control and expressway. I was experimenting with this beta.
I have a requirement for third parties to videoconference endpoints/movi registered to VCS. For most of the users ciscojabbervideo is perfect but there are a few that have there own video endpoints and I didnt really want to provide service to them from my expressway. I have tested other sip registrars such as clearsea, life size.
Since endpoints like the e20 is affordable for most small businesses, it would be nice to allow video endpoints register too.
Most small business couldnt justify the spend on the engineering time to setup TMS, VCS control and VCS expressway never mide buy the hardware/licenses.
I manage a large video environment and I have even deployed skype gateways to allow skype users talk to our standards based environment. However the video calls are still limited by the abilities of the skype codecs
I use movi on a daily basis its a fantastic piece of software, the codecs are excellent and if you have a good PC/camera and a resonable internet connection the quality is far better than skype.
Ciscojabbervideo is a giant step in the right direction in that it brings standards based video within the reach of individuals and small business.
I know its in beta but I do believe if you allow it to be used with some video endpoints it will become a real alternative to skype, as long as its free.
Even though the app is free cisco will still gain. The more video is carried on LAN's, WAN's and the internet will require more routers/switches and endpoints
Sorry for the rant, but I do believe this is potentially a game changing opertunity for cisco.
