Fuze Meeting Turns the Android Smartphones and Honeycomb Tablets into Virtual Conference Rooms with Multi-Party HD Video Conferencing

Fuze Meeting becomes the world’s first HD video collaboration service to Android 2.2 smartphones and 3.0 tablets.

SAN FRANCISCO – March 30, 2011 – FuzeBox, the leader in mobile HD video collaboration, today announces multi-party HD video conferencing, as a major update to its industry-leading web conferencing product Fuze Meeting, which brings people together into an immersive virtual collaborative environment, regardless of their device. Fuze Meeting’s new multi-party HD video conferencing comes complete with an improved user interface, support for all major smart phone, tablet and computer operating systems, and larger set of real-time multimedia sharing and annotation options.

Now, with support for even the latest devices, including the Motorola Atrix, HTC Thunderbolt and the Motorola Xoom, anyone can conduct a video meeting hosted in the cloud over WiFi or 3G, from anywhere. The powerful new user interface allows either the content or video conference to take center stage, while meeting controls minimize into the background, for a truly immersive experience.

“Physical presence through video conferencing has revolutionized the way we conduct meetings and the efficiency with which we collaborate,” says Jeff Cavins, CEO of FuzeBox. “This newest iteration of Fuze Meeting allows teams to collaborate as if they were together in person, using any device from any location.”

Fuze Meeting’s innovation moves beyond the current video collaboration space. The multi-party HD video conferencing is delivered at 720P, while maintaining the highest fidelity at low latency by dynamically adapting to a user’s available bandwidth with the Vidyo Adaptive Video Layering technology, using H.264 SVC. Fuze Meeting’s multi-party HD video conferencing is available for up to 10 video participants at once.

Fuze Meeting’s technology is designed to make online meetings simple and intuitive, yet powerful enough to connect enterprise users face-to-face on any screen with a full suite of collaboration tools at their fingertips. Since 1998, FuzeBox has been awarded 23 patents around telephony and collaboration with an additional 42 pending.

allen099 says:

Did you even read the article? "Support for even the latest devices....Xoom..." Not to mention that there's a pic of the Xoom on top.

biged214 says:

No I have a xoom and it tells me that your device is not supported on the market website and on the market it self it doesn't show up, xoom wifi btw..

dd0yl3 says:

It says it supports the xoom.

Pfft, at $70 monthly or $662 annually, I don't need this service to do video chat to other mobile phone users.

"Interested enterprise customers" - Guess you're not interested huh?

CagedReality says:

This is the second app that claims to be Xoom compatible that I can't find in the Android Market. Even scanning the QR code yields nothing. Same thing happened to me with the Intuit GoPayment app. Any idea why these apps are not available to me? I'm using the Motorola Xoom Wi-fi.

mfriedman79 says:

Yeah it looks like they keep forgetting to actually include Android 3.0 as a supported OS when deploying to the market.

CagedReality says:

I emailed FuzeBox about Moto Xoom compatibility, and I got this response today:

"Greetings,

Thank you for contacting FuzeBox.

We have released a new build for the Xoom today and it is now available for download in the Android market. We apologize for any inconveniences this delay may have caused. Please feel free to reply to this email if you have any further questions.

Kind Regards,

Fuze Meeting Support"

I checked and the app is now findable and installable on the Xoom.
