About you

Our mission is to design and provide organizations with secure videoconferencing solutions that guarantee the strict privacy of their communications.

What is your vision?

Make aware of the challenges related to espionage and cybercrime issues, we are committed to offering our clients a unique and highly secure collaboration experience. Tixeo is an innovative answer with a unique encryption architecture for videoconferencing.

No trustworthy offer on the market

After several eavesdropping scandals on the telephone network and Skype, trust in communication tools has been damaged. The governments of some countries require their communications solutions vendors to provide eavesdropping capabilities (backdoors). Thus, this includes over 90% of the solutions on the videoconferencing market.

Companies that want to hedge these risks usually isolate the communication tools on a private network. This approach can be efficient for internal communications but has the huge disadvantage of restricting the value of these solutions. In fact, it completely excludes external users: customers, suppliers, and partners.

What kind of solutions are you focused on?

Thanks to more than 15 years of experience and innovation in videoconferencing, Tixeo empowers its latest version with a new encryption architecture protecting online business meetings against any risk of corporate espionage.

We have developed 100% European video conferencing solutions with a level of performance, collaboration, and security never achieved before (certified and qualified by ANSSI).

How do you help to its customers and partners?

The Tixeo solution allows meeting in HD/4K video conferencing from any equipment (Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, Linux) while offering advanced collaboration features. Safety is taken into account at all stages of the conception (Secure by design).

It is available as a Cloud service, an on-premise server or outsourced (TixeoCloud, TixeoServer or TixeoPrivateCloud). The H.323 / SIP TixeoGateway service enriches these offers. For those wishing to equip new rooms, TixeoRoom is the solution. It will integrate naturally into the secured infrastructure while reducing installation and administration costs.

Customers Worldwide from SMB to large corporations.

Customers Worldwide from SMB to large corporation trust Tixeo: Nexter, Eurenco, DGA (the French Defense Procurement Agency), DGAC (French Civil Aviation Authority), CNRS (French national center for scientific research), Ariane Group, Orange, Credit Agricole, etc.

What makes Tixeo different?

We offer the most secure video conferencing technology on the market. Tixeo offers true end-to-end encryption for multipoint videoconferencing while maintaining high adaptability to network fluctuations.

Communication privacy always guaranteed.

In addition to the client-to-server encryption (link encryption), all communications are now encrypted from end to end (from client to client). This end-to-end encryption allows an unparalleled level of security for multipoint communications. We guaranteed the communication privacy, even in the case of an attack targeting the Tixeo server.

This innovation has been made possible by the unique SVC on Demand (Scalable Video Coding on Demand) technology created by Tixeo’s R&D department. Currently constrained by their technological architecture, no other videoconferencing vendor can offer such a level of security

New Tixeo feature: the delegation of the right to organise a videoconference

Olivier AZAN NewsEN

The latest version of the Tixeo client (V. 14.8.0) includes a new collaboration feature that allows you to delegate the organization and moderation rights of an online meeting.

Tixeo-right-delegation-ui

Previously, only the organizer of a videoconference had the ability to set up and modify the different components of a meeting: such as duration, invited persons or participants’ rights.

In order to provide more flexibility and freedom in setting up and managing a meeting, the organiser can now delegate the rights of organisation and moderation to any guest attending a meeting. The latter will thus benefit from the same administrative and control capacities as the initial organiser.

For example, an employee could schedule a meeting for his manager and give him all the rights of organization and moderation. During the videoconference the manager will have full control, the employee who initiated the meeting will no longer even need to be present.

Another use case: if an organizer has to leave a meeting in progress, he/she only has to transfer his/her rights of organization and moderation to another participant and leave without interrupting the communication.

An innovation that complements the many collaboration features offered by Tixeo such as screen and application sharing, remote control, secure file transfer and chat, and corporate messaging.

Tixeo, the French Frog 100% Home Office

Olivier AZAN NewsEN

In these hot weather, telework topics are once again emerging in the media as a one-off solution to alleviate the inconvenience of high heat. This theme also includes each unforeseen event that could affect employee mobility (snowy episodes, social movements, H1N1 flu epidemic, etc.).

Addressing telework as a temporary response to these issues is not representative of the real transformation to which the world of work aspires today. Teleworking and new modes of collaboration address different challenges and bring many benefits other than those related to mobility.

 

TIXEO Digital Workplace

The Tixeo solution allows you to organize several conversations simultaneously within the same meeting

Digital Workplace by Tixeo

Tixeo did not wait for snow, heat waves or the last strike to take the path of teleworking. After more than 10 years of traditional on-site collaboration, the editor of secure videoconferencing solutions is moving towards remote working in 2015 and is now claiming to be a 100% dematerialized company. At a time when companies are choosing to grant only one or two days of teleworking per week, Tixeo goes further and offers its employees a real virtual space accessible on a full-time basis, using its secure videoconferencing solution.

tixeo-french-frogTixeo joins the FROGs (Fully Remote OrGanizationS) family, a new category of companies that fully organize their remote collaboration through an adapted digital ecosystem (Cf. Here Come the Frogs (Fully Remote Organizations)

Every morning at 9:00, Tixeo employees meet from home in the digital open space as they would do in a traditional office. The Tixeo solution offers HD/4K video and crystal-clear sound that provide an optimal communication experience, easing exchanges and interactions. Connected continuously, they can easily collaborate through screen and application sharing, remote control or secure messaging. Customers and partners can also instantly join discussions via the simple installation of the native Tixeo client or through interoperability with legacy videoconferencing systems. To avoid the inconveniences associated with cross-discussions, the solution allows Tixeo employees to separate out within the virtual open-space: those who so wish can discuss among themselves without being disturbed, while remaining visible to the rest of the team. At the end of the day, employees disconnect exactly as if they were leaving their desks.

The continuous connection avoids the feeling of isolation or exclusion that some teleworkers may feel; in addition, Tixeo teams regularly gather at headquarters for certain work meetings and to share more friendly moments.

However, it is legitimate for a continuous connection to give rise to mistrust and fears about employees’ privacy. To work peacefully, it is possible to cut off the camera and microphone or even disconnect as you would leave your desk to take a break or concentrate on your work. This mode of collaboration will probably not be compatible with all corporate cultures.

Finally, to ensure the confidentiality of conversations, the Tixeo technology offers a real end-to-end encryption of client-to-client communications (video/audio/chat/data), as well as encryption of communication links between client and server. Tixeo is currently the only certified videoconferencing solution (CSPN -1-) and qualified by ANSSI -2-.

 

100% home-office: a winning bet for Tixeo

Videoconference TixeoThe immediate effect was first of all a reduction in structural costs: it is no longer necessary to rent spacious offices for the entire team. Tixeo’s headquarters hosts the management and a showroom to welcome customers and partners. The employees are spread throughout France and Europe (Paris, Montpellier, Clermont-Ferrand, Nice, Madrid, etc.) and use equipments provided by the company.

The benefits of mobility are also numerous. Home-to-work journeys and their carbon footprint have disappeared from everyday life. Employees save time and quality of life, they evolve in a favorable environment, which reduces stress, delays and illness. This lack of travel leads them to be more concentrated and productive. This improved productivity is also due to the Tixeo video collaboration which offers more agility and efficiency in the tasks to be carried out.

This organization also optimizes employee recruitment and retention: the search for new talent is no longer limited to a geographical area: we hire the best people, not the one who lives closest to us. It is therefore possible to recruit throughout Europe without requiring the future employee and his/her family to move. Employees also enjoy complete freedom of mobility, allowing them to move from one region to another at any time, if they have a good Internet connection and a quiet place to stay.

Finally, the benefits of Tixeo videoconferencing are contagious and also benefit a growing number of our customers and partners: without being forced to do so, many use Tixeo spontaneously and benefit from it in practice: simplified meeting organization, enhanced customer relations, project follow-up and optimal reactivity. Being able to see each other in one click really increases the quality of customer relations.

Tixeo launches its Smart Meeting Grid technology and simplifies the global deployment of its secure videoconferencing

Olivier AZAN NewsEN

Tixeo, the European leader in secure videoconferencing, announces the launch of its SMG (Smart Meeting Grid) technology and offers all its customers the possibility to install its videoconferencing solution via the deployment of a multipoint network. The innovation is based on the intelligence of the system, which automatically connects users to the nearest communication servers.

Logo Smart Meeting Grid

The SMG technology allows the customer to set up its communication servers network in the regions of its choice. This multipoint infrastructure now includes intelligent management that automatically selects the active communication servers closest to users, significantly reducing latency and providing employees with an optimal user experience.

Smart Meeting Grid

Automatic selection of points of presence

This innovation perfectly meets the needs expressed by international groups who simply want to deploy Tixeo videoconferencing on a global scale and benefit from increased performance in communication flows (audio, video and data).

Renaud Ghia, CEO of Tixeo explains: “We were already proposing this type of multipoint architecture to bring users closer to communication servers. Our priority was to reduce delays (latency) that can be too long with remote sites. We now offer an infrastructure that is still easy to deploy but now has real intelligence that automatically selects the point of presence nearest to the user. This simplifies the procedure: the administrator no longer has to manually select the appropriate communication server. A simplicity that can also be found in the communication flow: each point of presence communicates only in HTTPS.

SMG technology has another advantage: it integrates a high level of service resilience. If one server stops working, another will automatically take over, ensuring continuity of service. SMG technology is designed to adapt to customers’ infrastructures, thus maintaining full control over the security of their communications.

 

Confidentiality and security under control in any situation:  the example of Orange

Logo Orange

The adaptability and the high level of security provided by Tixeo led Orange Group to add Tixeo secure videoconferencing to its collaboration tools.

Orange employees sometimes exchange confidential information during online meetings.

A communication server has therefore been placed in the company’s internal network to fully control the security of exchanges between employees. Videoconferences remain isolated from the rest of the company and from outside.

Employees may also be required to communicate with users outside the company. To secure these exchanges, a communication server, placed on an external Private Cloud, will automatically be selected to relay the communication flows between the internal and external servers. This organization also allows employees to use their smartphone or tablet for videoconferencing from outside via the Internet.

 

It should be remembered that the Tixeo secure videoconferencing solution integrates end-to-end encryption during multipoint meetings, including as communication flows (audio, video, data) pass through the SMG’s points of presence.

With SMG technology, Tixeo confirms its expertise in network and security issues applied to videoconferencing. The French editor currently offers the only certified videoconferencing solution (CSPN[1]) qualified by ANSSI[2]. Its offer was awarded the France Cybersecurity label in January 2019

Tixeo offers telepresence to all its customers

Olivier AZAN NewsEN

Tixeo, the European leader in secure videoconferencing, announces the launch of its client’s new version (14.6.3): among the new features, the European editor offers an smart multiscreen display function allowing its users to extend the interface of the solution in high resolution on an unlimited number of monitors. With this innovation, organizations can now integrate telepresence into their online meetings.

Télépresence sécurisée HD Tixeo

Immersive HD telepresence for everyone

This new feature allows the solution to be easily adapted to meeting rooms and more broadly to situations requiring authentic face-to-face communication regardless of the number of screens connected to the system. With a simple click, the organizer can choose the number of monitors on which he wants to extend the Tixeo client. The participants’ videos are distributed and enlarged on the selected screens, thus reinforcing the feeling of reality and proximity.

To offer an even stronger immersive experience, Tixeo relies on its exclusive SVC on Demand technology that will maximize the quality of each video regardless of the number. Another advantage: the system automatically dedicates a screen for any desktop or application sharing, which enhances them, thus optimizing the collaborative aspect of the meeting. This functionality is compatible with the VideoTouch Compact, the Tixeo video conferencing kit for meeting rooms.

Sebastien Jeanjean TixeoSébastien JEANJEAN, Co-founder of Tixeo adds: “With this update, Tixeo clearly stands out from other solutions available on the market. Unlike most of our competitors, this new multi-screen feature provides easy access to telepresence at no additional cost to our customers. In addition, the Tixeo solution imposes no limit on the number of displays to be connected and provides HD quality for each video displayed, subject to sufficient bandwidth..

 

Safety as well

In addition, Tixeo provides a range of innovative security mechanisms, such as end-to-end encryption in multipoint meetings or client-server link encryption, enabling the implementation of the most secure telepresence meetings on the market. Tixeo is currently the only certified videoconferencing solution (CSPN-1-) and qualified by ANSSI-2-, and its offer was awarded the France Cybersecurity label at the beginning of the year.

Tixeo will soon include in its Tixeo Room range a complete kit particularly adapted to this functionality for meeting rooms equipped with several screens.
