Like all of us app or software developers realize it is a never-ending process for improvement. Alcatel-Lucent just released 1.2 and they explained the Before-During-After of the new features. I was able to get a demo of the current version with the new one in the oven.
So what’s new? Alcatel-Lucent OpenTouch Suite 1.2 revolutionizes visual communications, providing new user experiences. With OpenTouch, conversations are naturally continuous and persistent over time. The latest update OpenTouch Suite 1.2 enriches communication before, during and after the conversation, so that employees can plan, record, store, share conversations and “socialize” them afterwards.
Before the conversation, video enriches invitations to meetings and conference sessions, replacing long text agendas by short video clips. OpenTouch Conversation clients enable users to record a video invitation or send an instant video message.
During the conversation, the embedded multiparty, multimedia collaboration capabilities of OpenTouch 1.2 provide full ad hoc or scheduled conversations utilizing multiple media across devices such as PCs, tablets, interactive whiteboards and LifeSize video endpoints. This helps organizations improve the effective collaboration of virtual teams and a dispersed, mobile workforce. The 8082 MyIC Phone supports a visual conversation as easily as a phone call with the addition of video through a simple tap of the screen.
After the conversation, the OpenTouch Video Store, a cloud-based solution that enables enterprises to record, store and share conversations helps broaden the collaborative conversation, reach a wider audience, while maximizing the impact of communication. In this release, it supports a new native iPad client, downloaded from the iTunes App Store and new editing capabilities to enhance and provide context to those recordings.
