Today Zoom announced several enhancements designed to give our customers greater flexibility and agility: the Zoom One-Tap Connector for Cisco — our single-touch integration with Cisco video systems — expanded default meeting capacity from 50 to 100 video participants, and Zoom Rooms support for the Crestron Mercury Room Solution. We’re making these announcements from the Infocomm 2017 tradeshow this week in Orlando.
Cisco customers can now host Zoom video meetings from traditional Cisco conference room systems with just one tap. This tight integration allows for a supremely simple experience. Key benefits include:
This feature is now available for the Cisco systems listed above, and expands on the previously-announced one-tap connector for some Polycom room systems.
Zoom has expanded its default meeting capacity from 50 to support up to 100 video participants. This increased capacity applies to all Zoom Basic (Free), Pro, and Business users, Zoom Rooms, and Zoom Video Webinar video panelists (webinars also support up to 10,000 viewers). There is no extra cost associated with these capacity increases. The expanded capacity is now live for all customers.
Crestron Mercury, widely recognized for its superior audio conferencing quality, is the newest controller supported by Zoom Rooms. The integration fully incorporates Mercury’s simplified user experience, providing these key benefits:
Zoom’s support for the Crestron System is the first step in what the companies envision as a long-term partnership to foster greater integration across the Crestron and Zoom product suites. The solution will be available to customers soon.
“Zoom is all about customer happiness,” said Eric S. Yuan, Founder and CEO of Zoom. “Why did we increase our default meeting capacity? Why did we enhance the integration experience with hardware providers? Because we want to provide our customers with the most powerful, flexible, and frictionless video meeting experiences. We want them to meet however they want over Zoom, without having to worry about their capacity or hardware. In short, we want to make them happy!”
