Today, Blue Jeans Network, global video conferencing technology provider, announced the release of a new bi-directional HD desktop sharing solution. This solution is specifically geared for Microsoft Lync users.
This new offering from Blue Jeans is currently the only multi-party, bi-directional content sharing technology that allows Lync and non-Lync users to connect securely without needing additional on-premise hardware. The solution is implemented in the Blue Jeans cloud and supports users who are on Skype, Google Video Chat, Cisco Jabber, as well as those on Polycom and Cisco video conference room technology.
The company first offered Lync support in 2012 and they have reported a quickly-growing Lync user base. Stu Aaron, CCO, Blue Jeans Network, spoke about the new solution in a press release today: “Tens of thousands of Lync endpoints have already participated in Blue Jeans meetings. Up until now these Lync users could easily join the meetings, to see and be seen, and could receive desktop content shared by other, non-Lync, devices. With this new bi-directional HD desktop sharing feature, Lync users can now also share their own desktop content, including presentations and other documents, the way they are used to, in high definition with other meeting participants.”
