Quotes
"Scopia Desktop is a mature technology that effectively combines innovative capabilities with reliability, security and ease of use. It takes the guesswork out of desktop video conferencing by enabling anyone to join a call from their laptop or PC. Unlike competing alternatives, Scopia doesn't require any pre-meeting arrangements that add unnecessary complexity or confusion, which has given me the opportunity to use the tool regularly when speaking with the teams at Avaya and Radvision. As both traditional and startup competitors continuously tinker with their desktop video solutions to get them right, Scopia Desktop consistently offers reliability, quality and functionality that are difficult to match."
-- Rob Arnold, Senior Industry Analyst, Unified Communications and Collaboration, Frost & Sullivan

"We're honored by this latest recognition from Frost & Sullivan. Scopia Desktop is a proven personal video conferencing solution that is used by hundreds of thousands of people around the globe today, thanks in large part to how easy it is to use, its rich features and its high reliability. Our model of an always-on virtual room combined with a freely distributable client enabling anywhere, anytime conferencing, including desktop and mobile, have helped us achieve this well-deserved recognition."
-- Bob Romano, Global Vice President of Marketing, Radvision
