Lookout MCUs, there’s a new kid in town… and it means business!  Avaya Radvision has released the most impressive, capable, and powerful MCU in the industry, the Elite 6000 Series, a software-based hybrid multi-point control unit.  While it may be a beast with its performance and density capabilities, in terms of power consumption and dollars… well, it’s as gentle as a lamb!  Let me tell you all about it.

Introducing the beast side of the Elite 6000 Series… it is the only MCU in the industry that can support 1080p60, the highest quality of video resolution.  End users request this level of resolution when up close and personal conferences are crucial, for example, with telemedicine.  Even more strength comes from the amazing capacity in one single chassis alone!  The Elite 6000 series can provide up to 80 ports in 720p… which means 40 1080p ports!  Other manufacturers require multiple stacks to reach that kind of density.

Now, with these strong capabilities, you probably expect the power consumption or price to scare you away.  Nope, no chance!  To quote Avaya, the Elite 6000 “reduces the cost per port for high-definition video conferencing by up to 50 percent, offers double the density and performance, and requires up to 75 percent less power than traditional hardware-based MCUs.”  And for more proof, here is a quote from Frost & Sullivan, The Elite 6000 Series does exactly what a hardware-based MCU does, only more efficiently – and it offers the benefits of a software-only based MCU but with more capacities and lower cost per port.”

The release of the Elite 6000 MCU is definitely something to be excited about.  Click here for more details and access to a comprehensive data sheet.
