Taipei, Taiwan, February 3, 2020 – QNAP® Systems, Inc., a leading computing, networking, and storage solution innovator, today launched KoiMeeter, the new smart video conferencing solution for NAS. The feature-packed KoiMeeter includes wireless presentation, real-time AI transcription and translation, and on-premise storage for video call recordings, making it an ideal and cost-effective video conference solution for enterprises, SMBs, and studios. Organizations can easily improve multi-site communication and streamline teamwork efficiency with KoiMeeter.
The latest KoiMeeter application makes building a video conferencing system straightforward. Users simply install KoiMeeter onto a QNAP NAS and connect the NAS to a TV via the HDMI port. Then connect compatible cameras and microphones to the NAS USB port to complete the smart video conferencing system set up.
Moreover, cross-site high-quality video calls are made easy and seamless for users between two KoiMeeter devices or a compatible SIP system (e.g. Avaya). KoiMeeter features a wireless presentation function, allowing presenters to share their screen display on a TV through a web browser, eliminating the need for additional wireless projectors, dongles, or software. Meeting participants can use KoiMeeter's Insight View function to view presentations on their computers. KoiMeeter also integrates smart AI functions, including audio transcription, real-time translation, and AI noise reduction function to make communications clear and streamlined. Meeting recordings can be directly stored on KoiMeeter for further usage.
“Traditional video conference systems are often expensive”, said Dylan Lin, Product Manager of QNAP. “As a result, companies only equip video call systems in a few meeting rooms, which can cause overbooking of these video conference rooms. With KoiMeeter, users can build an affordable, hassle-free, AI-powered cloud video conferencing system simply using a NAS with HDMI ports to connect to the TV, and connect compatible cameras and microphones to the device.”
KoiMeeter device can be used with 180-degree camera and Bluetooth microphones from strategic partner Jabra and selected cameras from Logitech. The current KoiMeeter version integrates the traditional SIP video conferencing system with further integration of cloud meeting solutions still under development. The smart video conference solution's high compatibility enables businesses with different call solutions to join meetings easily. A mobile version of KoiMeeter is in development and will be released soon, making it easy for users to join meetings with their mobile devices anytime and anywhere.
KoiMeeter Smart Video Conference Solution can be downloaded from QTS App Center. With the built-in basic plan, users can start video call meetings immediately or purchase license to use more advanced functions.
