  • Radvision Scopia XT5000 Named Most Innovative New Video System for 2012
  • Scopia XT5000 Offers Unparalleled Price-Performance Ratio
Radvision, an Avaya Company, today announced that Frost & Sullivan has named the Radvision Scopia XT5000 as the recipient of its prestigious New Product Innovation Award. The Scopia XT5000, introduced earlier this year, is the industry's most powerful video system in its class, combining state-of-the-art video conferencing technologies with unmatched price-performance ratio.
The SCOPIA XT5000 is the industry's first and only system available to incorporate dual 1080p/60fps live video and content, HD audio, H.264 High Profile and RADVISION Scalable Video Coding (SVC), along with iPad Multi-Touch control, making it the most feature-rich video conferencing system in the market. The XT5000 uniquely and simultaneously combines the latest in bandwidth and network management technologies – H.264 High Profile for bandwidth efficiency and SVC for a high-quality image, even in unpredictable network environments.
"The Radvision Scopia XT5000 packs numerous advanced features and capabilities into an efficient all-in-one form factor without sacrificing cost, quality, functionality, or simplicity," said Rob Arnold, senior industry analyst of Unified Communications and Collaboration at Frost & Sullivan. "Enterprises are looking for value-added solutions that offer the advanced capabilities, extensibility and flexibility that can give them a competitive edge, and the XT5000 does just that. While there are many video conferencing endpoint options available today, Radvision has placed itself ahead of the pack by offering leading-edge capabilities at an attractive price in its innovative Scopia XT5000."
The recipient of the Frost & Sullivan New Product Innovation Award for Technology Innovation is selected after rigorous analysis of the leading companies in video conferencing and telepresence endpoints. It is awarded to the company that best exhibits value-added features and benefits, leverages leading-edge technologies, demonstrates technology innovation, increases customer ROI, and demonstrates high potential for customer acquisition and market penetration.
"We are honored to receive this recognition from Frost & Sullivan. Our heritage in standards-based video conferencing technologies has enabled us to continuously innovate and offer leading-edge solutions at a remarkable price point and without compromising quality and the overall video conferencing experience," said Bob Romano, Radvision global vice president of Marketing. "The XT5000 and the more recently introduced Scopia XT4200 are the most powerful video systems in their class. And now, Radvision solutions also offer full interoperability with Avaya’s market-leading, end-to-end UC solutions; this is a win-win situation for customers of any size and in any industry."
