OSLO, Norway--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Pexip today announced the general availability of Pexip Infinity, a scalable software platform that provides personal meeting rooms for any number of users on video, voice and mobile. Pexip Infinity is a revolutionary, purely software-based, virtualized solution that can be deployed quickly and easily, with the flexibility to scale as required. The complementary Pexip mobile application for iOS provides conference participants with a consistent interface where they can control conferences and view presentations, all from their own personal device.
“As the demand of employees to work anywhere, anytime increases, and as more companies adopt the trend of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), companies need to rethink IT decisions”
“Technology continues to drive change in the workplace. In the video conferencing space, the dynamics today revolve around the shift from hardware to software,” said Andrew W. Davis, founder and senior partner, Wainhouse Research. “Pexip’s solution fits well within the mainstream enterprise future – a virtualized solution that works in a truly distributed architecture, melds with common IT strategies and tools, and provides customers with unprecedented levels of interoperability and flexibility.”

This product offers a flexible commercial model, scalable enterprise licensing, and the ability to run on a cloud platform – with no allegiance to any current manufacturer or standard.
Breakthrough Video Conferencing Solution
Key benefits of the Pexip solution are:
- Software-only – Unlike traditional hardware architectures, Pexip Infinity can be deployed remotely on two or more virtual machines in as little as 15 minutes. This saves time, cost and logistics of delivering custom hardware to different locations. The unique software architecture means that new features and technologies such as H.265, SVC and WebRTC support will be made available to a company’s global data centers through on-going software upgrades.
- Simple to use – The Pexip mobile application for iOS (Pexip App) allows users to view the presentation and current participants on the call in addition to zoom and other features available on a mobile device.
- Hardware agnostic – Pexip Infinity’s platform is designed to efficiently use industry-standard servers from any vendor to provide high-quality, scalable and efficient conferencing.
Additional features and benefits include an easy to use management API; industry-leading redundancy and resilience capabilities; a distributed architecture to reduce WAN bandwidth consumption, saving companies money and increasing conference capacity. With a disruptive licensing model, organizations can increase or decrease conferencing capacity to the changing needs of an organization.
“Traditional hardware platforms and video services are costly and do not provide the flexibility needed in today’s competitive market,” said Gary Bishop, digital strategist, Telepresence Consulting. “Pexip can be distributed across the enterprise to maximize access and bandwidth or additional nodes can be added using cloud based services.”
“As the demand of employees to work anywhere, anytime increases, and as more companies adopt the trend of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), companies need to rethink IT decisions,” said Simen Teigre, chief executive officer and co-founder, Pexip. “Pexip Infinity is a revolutionary product that enables simple, affordable and high-quality video meetings for everyone, everywhere, offering users enterprise-quality virtual meeting rooms that meet the demands of the increasingly virtual workforce.”
