New Tixeo features: recurrence of meetings and interface customization

Olivier AZAN NewsEN

The release of the new Tixeo (V 14.5.0) is an opportunity to provide additional features that simplify the scheduling of periodic meetings and offer more personalization to organizations.

Scheduling a recurring meeting once and for all

It is frequent for Tixeo users to repeatedly schedule online work meetings in order to meet on a periodic schedule. Tixeo meets this need and offers organizations to precisely set up the frequency of the videoconferences they schedule in a single operation. During the meeting configuration step it is now possible to choose the frequency of repetition (in day, week -with choice of days of the week-, month or year) and to define the end of this periodicity. This option offers considerable time-savings by automating the repetition of meetings, thus putting an end to manual and repeated scheduling.

Tixeo customized with your branding

To display a consistent brand image in the implementation of their information system, organizations are increasingly adopting customizable solutions. Tixeo now offers this possibility and allows to adapt the graphic identity of companies (logo, graphic guide line, etc.) on all versions of its software client (Windows, macOS, Linux, iOS, Android), its information emails (account creation, invitations, etc.) and its Web account management interface.

The Tixeo Secure Videoconferencing receives the ANSSI security Visa by the French National Cybersecurity Agency

Olivier AZAN NewsEN

 The first ANSSI-1- Security Visa ceremony took place on June 21, 2018 in Paris, Maison de la Chimie. This award ceremony was an opportunity for ANSSI to highlight French excellence in security evaluation. 

Renaud Ghia, Tixeo’s CEO, received the famous Visa from Mounir Mahjoubi, Secretary of State to the Prime Minister, in charge of Digital and Guillaume Poupard, Director General of the French National Cybersecurity Agency (ANSSI).

To address digital risks, Security Visas delivered by ANSSI allow to identify reliable security solutions recognized as such following an evaluation carried out by approved laboratories, according to a rigorous and proven methodology.

This evaluation takes the form of penetration tests and an analysis of the conformity of these solutions to the expressed security need. Security Visas are a guarantee of security for users.

This Visa is materialized for Tixeo by the qualification (elementary level) and the CSPN-2- certification of its product TixeoServer version 11.5.2.0 (qualification decision n°1606 issued on April 03, 2017). Tixeo is the first videoconferencing solution to receive an ANSSI Security Visa, which highly differentiates Tixeo from other offers on the market.

For Tixeo, this distinction is the result of 10 years of research and development that have enabled the implementation of innovative security mechanisms, including true end-to-end encryption of communications in a multipoint meeting.

Tixeo enhances H.323 / SIP interoperability

Olivier AZAN NewsEN

The TixeoGateway already allows perfect interoperability with legacy H.323 / SIP videoconferencing systems (incoming and outgoing calls), without opening any port. It also supports the H.239 standard allowing legacy room systems to share content into a Tixeo meeting.

Enhanced range of features

To give users more freedom and flexibility, the TixeoGateway expands its range of features.

Tixeo VideoconferencingTixeo Gateway now integrates FECC and DTMF

 

It now integrates FECC (Far End Camera Control): a user calling a legacy videoconferencing system from a Tixeo meeting can take remote control of a PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) camera. Using the ergonomic navigation control, the Tixeo user can zoom in, zoom out or pan with ease.

Another important new feature is the integration of the DTMF (dual-tone multi-frequency) code system which enables communication with interactive voice servers and the composition of digital codes.

Finally, support for the H.239 standard has been improved: it is now possible for a Tixeo user to share an application or desktop with a legacy system.

Tixeo launches VideoTouch and simplifies video conferencing from meeting rooms

Olivier AZAN NewsEN

Tixeo, a European software company specialized in secure video conferencing, launches its new kit: VideoTouch. Videoconferencing from a meeting room becomes simpler while maintaining a high level of quality and confidentiality.

 

 

Existing room systems: both difficult to install and use

With legacy videoconferencing systems (H.323, SIP), trouble starts right from the installation for network administrators: many ports to open, dedicated lines, firewalls complex configuration, attacks, etc.

Once installed, these systems confirm their complexity with a hard-to-use remote control, such as for entering a recipient’s address. Compatibility problems between manufacturers are also very common.

Easily manage videoconferencing with your fingertips

With VideoTouch, Tixeo makes videoconferencing very simple from a room, allowing participants to really focus on the purpose of the meeting.

The organizer easily manages meetings from the high-resolution touch console: with fingertips, he can instantly enlarge a video, moderate participants, communicate via instant messaging or share a computer screen. Users familiar with Tixeo will not be disoriented: VideoTouch has a graphical interface identical to those available on mobile solutions (Android) and workstations (PC/Mac).

On the installation side, VideoTouch has all the advantages of Tixeo’s technology for network adaptation (automatic management of available bandwidth and zero impact on network configuration).

VideoTouch kit embeds standard equipment including latest-generation PTZ camera and mic/speaker unit. The system is managed by a micro-sized unit with an i7 processor. In its initial configuration, it is designed for meeting rooms from 5 to 20 people, and can be expanded to a larger number.

Finally, VideoTouch remains an open videoconferencing system: the TixeoGateway option provides perfect interoperability to communicate with legacy videoconferencing systems such as SIP or H.323 without any of their inconvenience.

         

 

A high level of privacy

Tixeo’s secure videoconferencing technology is currently the only one certified (CSPN ) and qualified by the ANSSI . VideoTouch brings to videoconferencing from a meeting room a level of privacy never achieved before. Tixeo provides true end-to-end encryption of communications in a multipoint meeting (impossible on legacy H.323 / SIP videoconferencing systems).

Tixeo launches a new recording and broadcasting service

Olivier AZAN NewsEN

Tixeo, a European software company specialized in secure video conferencing, enriches its solution with a new recording service, available from the Tixeo client software, to stored or broadcast videoconferences in the Cloud.

By offering this feature, Tixeo wants to meet the growing demand of organizations to easily record, watch and share their meetings. In a context where remote collaboration is increasingly popular among companies, it was essential to propose this option..

Easy to use, stored in the Cloud

Recording a Tixeo secure videoconference is done easily from a computer, a smartphone, a tablet, or a meeting room. Within a few clicks the organizer of a meeting can start the process, a visual notification then informs the participants that recording is in progress. At the end of the videoconference, it is then possible to access the recorded video stored in the cloud and replay it later.

Tixeo goes even further by allowing to directly broadcast the videoconferences with the Live Streaming option. An organizer can then consider doing a live webcast of its meeting.

Renaud GHIA, CEO of Tixeo says: Videoconferencing security is part of Tixeo’s DNA, which guarantees the confidentiality of meetings. However, some of our customers have expressed the need to massively record or broadcast their videoconferences to meet business needs such as training. We are now making this possible with this new service

The recording and Live Streaming features are available as an option in the TixeoCloud Premium, TixeoServer and TixeoPrivateCloud offers.
