We are excited to announce today that we are expanding our hardware ecosystem to provide new options for our recently released GoToRoom system. The new collaboration combines GotoRoom’s easy-to-use, fast, and cost-effective system, backed by industry leading GoToMeeting software, with Dolby’s best in class hardware solutions to turn huddle and conference rooms into high-end video enabled spaces.
Dolby will help to elevate the GoToRoom experience by delivering natural, lifelike meetings as conference rooms become more essential workspaces to collaborate with people inside and outside the office. When using GoToRoom, meeting attendees will be able to experience the spectacular audio delivered by Dolby Voice along with Dolby’s best in class, advanced video capabilities, no matter their location or device.
“With most conferencing solutions today, people spend far too much time struggling to be heard or figuring out what is being said by participants. Dolby’s expertise in audio and video technologies enables us to deliver a natural, life-like, and intuitive conferencing experience with Dolby Voice,” said Andrew Border, Vice President, Communications Business Group, Dolby. “With LogMeIn’s leadership in the collaboration and communication market, along with our shared passion for delivering spectacular user experiences, we will now be able to deliver Dolby Voice to a larger audience.”
Utilizing Dolby’s Room-as-a-Service (RaaS) model, businesses will be able to pay a low all-inclusive monthly rate for both the hardware and software, eliminating the need for large upfront costs when outfitting multiple rooms. This subscription-based pricing model removes the headaches that have long been associated with the purchasing of hardware. Cost-efficient and hassle-free, RaaS allows companies to stay within budget, steer clear of intimidating overheads, and avoid lengthy internal approvals, making the GoToRoom and Dolby Voice rooms solution one of the easiest to buy, easiest to use and easiest to support in the market.
As an innovator in audio and video technologies, Dolby brings an immense amount of expertise to our vision of creating best-in-class, easy to set up and manage, video enabled spaces. With companies increasingly dispersed, and analyst firms such as Aragon Research predicting that by 2022 65% of conference rooms will be video-enabled, it’s more important than ever to offer the most realistic in room experience so that colleagues, customers and partners can feel like they are in the same space whether they are sitting across the table or across the globe. Through our collaboration with Dolby, we are closer than ever to achieving that goal and we look forward to delivering this to the market later this summer.
If you already have your own hardware in a conference room, no problem. With our InRoom Link, customers can utilize existing supported video conferencing systems to quickly connect to GoToMeeting for easy in-room collaboration. Rooms with H.323 or SIP-enabled equipment can join meetings by simply entering a code generated by GoToMeeting invites.
