Team Collaboration for Business? What is Vibe?
eZuce pioneered large-scale collaboration for research institutions worldwide. They have combined the knowledge and technology from that work with the experience gained by understanding the Unified Communications needs of our customers’ Agile development teams to deliver a collaboration solution that will work for your organization’s communities.
Vibe has two modes of engagement: Meeting & Team In both modes, users have one-click access to voice, video conferencing, chat and screen sharing.
Meeting Mode - In meeting mode, users can easily join a Vibe meeting and when the meeting is finished they can exit the application. This is your typical video conferencing tool.
Team Mode - In Team mode, Vibe takes a decidedly different approach. When team members sign into Vibe they enter into a complete virtual open office workspace. This platform acts as an always-on team enablement tool that allows individual team members to choose the way they want to collaborate. The team approach to communications fosters real-time engagement with the rest of the user’s community. Vibe puts all team members in the same “room” empowering users to collaborate naturally throughout their workday to discuss issues as they arise, resolve problems quickly, make decisions faster, and engage more effectively.
By changing the way distributed teams work together, Vibe can help organizations rapidly address active opportunities, resolve customer issues, make important product decisions and hold daily scrum meetings. Breaking down barriers imposed by distance is what your communications tools should do. eMail and chat applications tend to create distance and foster misunderstanding. Being in the same 'place' and interacting with interpersonal communications skills allows work to get done.
The Vibe team platform puts all team members in the same virtual workspace enabling users to discuss issues, solve problems and make decisions in real time and from wherever they are working. In addition to H.323/SIP-based room system operability, customizable control of video tiles, guest access via WebRTC, and concurrent desktop sharing, Vibe differentiates through patent-pending features such as:
- Telephony Integration - to make/take/merge calls to/from SIP endpoints even while in meetings
- App Tabs - to bring web-based business process apps to meetings
- Meeting Privacy - to minimize interrupts and keep privacy through door-knocking and permission granting
Universal Multimedia Player - to stream HD quality video or audio files directly into a meeting through a separate video tile
The eZuce Vibe (formerly Vibe) video conferencing solution is a completely software based, multi-point, high-definition, hybrid-cloud based, video and web collaboration solution for PCs (Windows, Mac or Linux) and mobile devices (iOS and Android) using the H.264 standard and bridging to H.323 and SIP devices.
Who Should Use Vibe?
eZuce Vibe is designed to help teams of people who are distributed work together. Almost any team of individuals who need to interact with each other can benefit from using Vibe.
Agile development teams were the genesis of the ideas behind Vibe. Agile team members are generally in close proximity to each other to help facilitate rapid iteration and team collaboration. This is made difficult when cross-functional teams are established. Being able to create teams that aren't bound to the same location is today's business reality.
Teams use Vibe Meeting Rooms as their virtual open office. Hang out in the room all day or when you aren't in other meetings. Come and go from the space just as you would throughout the day. Leave your camera on or off, whatever you're comfortable with. With your camera on and mic muted, your teammates can just look and see if you're in or on the phone which really isn't much different from a real office (except that nobody can hear your music or other conversations). Turn your microphone on and speak up and then the whole team can hear you and chime in as needed.
