YOUi Labs brings NUI to Mitel’s New Multimedia Collaboration game-changer
OTTAWA, Aug. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – Mitel UC360 Collaboration Point is a
first-of-its-kind device for the personal office meeting space. Created
in response to customer requests for an easier, more cost-effective way
to foster collaboration, it is a single device that combines in-room
presentation display and multi-party audio and visual collaboration for
remote participants. Compact, easy to deploy, touchscreen, simple to
use, UC360 gives customers the ability to turn collaboration from a
special event into a natural part of every work day.
With a natural user interface (NUI) from YOUi Labs, great communications
technology is at the user’s fingertips, with no distractions from the
task at hand.
Mitel is a leading provider of Unified Communications and Collaboration
(UCC) solutions and YOUi Labs is the market leader in NUI
technology. Both are Canadian firms headquartered in Ottawa. The UC360,
which was announced by Mitel on June 20, makes Mitel the first Canadian
manufacturer to license the YOUi Labs uSwish NUI Framework.
“The user experience starts with the interface,” said Jason Flick, President and CEO of YOUi Labs. ”A natural user interface is intuitive, responsive, and visually
appealing. Videoconferencing is all about human engagement and the
interface has to support that. It’s a natural fit of our technologies
to serve a market need.”
“Ease of use is a critical requirement for end-user adoption of new
technology and our design team was focused on ensuring that Mitel UC360
was intuitive,” said Tim Kostyniuk, Vice President of Product Management and Solutions
Marketing for Mitel. “YOUi Labs’ user interface will literally allow Mitel UC360 customers
to launch a collaboration session, share presentations, and video
conference with colleagues with the tap of a finger.”
