Arkadin (News - Alert), an NTT Communications company and market leader in cloud Unified Communications and Collaboration services, has launched Arkadin Vision, a digital meeting space that seamlessly connects audio, web and video for a unified meeting experience. The new cloud-based service addresses market demand for simpler, more streamlined collaboration solutions that connect conference attendees across diverse endpoints for more productive virtual meetings.

Arkadin Vision reflects trends underway in the market that are driving the need for instant connectivity between different technologies and platforms. Momentum (News - Alert) for Skype for Business in enterprises and a mobile workforce that requires virtual collaboration anytime, anywhere and from any device, including video room systems, are key factors.

Arkadin Vision is purpose built to meet this need. In addition to workplace productivity and efficiency advantages, the affordable license-based model will deliver tangible bottom line benefits."

Arkadin Vision is powered by Pexip's Infinity meeting platform which seamlessly ties together communication tools for simple deployments and unmatched flexibility and scalability.
