Nefsis Launches Next-Generation,
Software-Based VoIP Audio Engine for Business-to-Business Video
Conferencing via the Cloud
VoIP engine provides
full-duplex, multi-party audio to support several speakers at the
same time, delivers enhanced echo cancellation and noise reduction
SAN DIEGO â€” June 22, 2011 â€” Online services innovator Nefsis®
announced today its new software-based VoIP engine with full-duplex,
multiparty audio. As part of its HD video conferencing
cloud, the enhanced VoIP engine enables multiple participants to
speak at the same time, and offers improved acoustic echo
cancellation support for laptops and better noise cancellation for
superior audio performance during online video meetings. Yielding
high-quality audio with hands-free webcam microphones, Nefsis also
has automatic half-duplex echo cancellation failovers in place when
full duplex is not available.
The new VoIP engine also handles different latency times among
multiple participants and packet delay variations, the latter often
referred to as jitter, improving the quality of multiparty
conferences with different connections. This is increasingly
important across a dispersed workforce or customer base that may
have different networking environments, such as a low-latency
wireline corporate connections, wireless home office or high-latency
video conferencing to desktops and
boardrooms, Nefsis’ VoIP audio engine supports audio inputs from
conference room equipment,
such as ClearOne, Phoenix Audio Technologies, Revo Labs and Yamaha.
Nefsis can also be delivered across PCs in a multipurpose conference
room setting to facilitate large, productive meetings without
requiring expensive, single-purpose telepresence installations.
“Most online service providers use simplex audio for three or
more parties, which imposes unnatural limitations as parties wait
to speak one at a time,” said Allen Drennan,
Nefsis Chief Technology Officer.
“Eliminating this concern, Nefsis’ advanced VoIP engine
ensures a superior, high-quality audio experience, regardless of
network connection or number of participants speaking in a conference.
Combined with Nefsis’ support for traditional telephone
conferencing, participants can select multiple, reliable audio
options to ensure a superior video conferencing experience that
meets their organization’s unique needs.”
conferencing cloud provides all the resources necessary for
multipoint HD video mixing; firewall and proxy traversal for
desktops; advanced collaboration tools for productive meetings;
and network diagnostics for bandwidth, latency and routing
testing. Nefsis VoIP, video, and data connections use SSL/TLS
encryption for secure online meeting sessions.
Nefsis’ advanced VoIP engine was released in its most recent
cloud update and is available now to all Nefsis Professional
subscribers and trial users. For a free 14-day trial of Nefsis
