Host a 10-way video call, connect with other endpoints and 3rd party desktop or mobile apps without recurring fees.

FREMONT, Calif. -- AVer Information, a leading provider of innovative video conferencing solutions for OEMs, SMBs, large corporations, and education institutions announced today the launch of EVC900, the industry's first video conferencing solution with an embedded 10-way full HD MCU. The EVC900 offers a high-quality, easy-to-use, mobile-friendly and affordable 10-way conference bridge that is H.323 and SIP compliant and covered by the industry's only three-year warranty.

The EVC900 is an all-inclusive full HD video conferencing system, able to connect up to 10 endpoints including other video conferencing systems, or cloud service providers such as StarLeaf, BlueJeans, Zoom, Fuze, or services using Acano, Pexip and more. The new Active Speaker feature maximizes the view of the current presenter, while maintaining views of all other participants.  Full 1080p 30fps dual stream content sharing allows participants to share content with the ability to record entire meetings via USB.  The 1080p wide-angle HD camera with 16X optical zoom makes the EVC900 perfect for mid to large groups or rooms.

The EVC900 can also connect up to 9 other parties without recurring or annual fees.  With 3 display outputs, 2 video inputs, and remote API, the EVC900 seamlessly incorporates with room controls systems for full room integration projects.

"The EVC900 is a high performing, yet cost effective alternative to legacy MCU systems or bridging services, perfect for schools or corporations needing multi-call capabilities without continuous fees," said Eric Yu, Director of Product Management for AVer Information, Inc. Americas. "Whether connecting to AVer systems, or integrating with other VC or cloud services, the EVC900 offers an unprecedented collaborative video experience at an unmatched value."

"The vast majority of video meetings include less than 10 participants," explains Ira M. Weinstein, analyst and partner at Wainhouse Research.  "By supporting such a large number of participants on the EVC900's embedded bridge, Aver is giving customers with sufficient bandwidth a cost-effective alternative to external video bridges or hosted bridging services.  Aver continues to challenge the status quo within the video conferencing space."

The EVC900 is available now, MSRP $8499.99 through distribution partners such as Ingram Micro, and reseller partners such as CDW and Troxell Communications.  For more information about AVer's EVC Video Conferencing Solutions, visit or call toll free: 1-877-528-7824.
