The Zoom Cloud Room Connector (CRC) brings traditional H.323/SIP room systems to the cloud. CRC enables Polycom, Cisco Tandberg, Lifesize, and other endpoints to communicate easily with desktops, tablets, and mobile devices over Zoom. Unlike traditional hardware-based multi-point control unit (MCU) bridges, Zoom’s CRC is cloud based, requires zero-installation, and is available instantly. A traditional hardware MCU bridge that enables multiple endpoints in a single calls costs $15,000 to $100,000. CRC, on the other hand, is only $49/month per connection. CRC also offers better quality, reliability, features and lower cost of ownership than any other cloud-based video bridging services in the market.
Quick Start – simply dial the IP address of the CRC and enter your meeting ID via your remote control to start a meeting. Or just pair the endpoint by entering the pairing code on your meeting list.
Flexible Connections – you can add CRC connections needed to support H.323/SIP endpoints on-the-fly. That means you can have 10 connections today or 200 connections tomorrow via a single-click.
HD Video – CRC supports high definition (HD) video using standard-based H.264 encoding (and H.235 encryption) so any H.323/SIP endpoint can enjoy a crystal-clear face-to-face meeting with any desktop, tablet or mobile device.
Content Sharing – CRC supports the H.239 ITU and BFCP content-sharing protocol. That means you can content share from any H.323/SIP endpoint with H.239 or BFCP enabled.
Up to 200 Video Participants – Zoom can accommodate up to 200 interactive video participants on H.323/SIP endpoints, desktop, tablet, and mobile devices in a single meeting. Now you can see all hands in your all-hands meeting!
