Lync Conference 2013: That's a Wrap!

As the Lync Conference wraps up this week, I wanted to take a moment and thank the Microsoft Lync team for having us at the show. One thing is very evident - The Lync partner ecosystem is very much alive and bursting with unique and creative solutions. It is amazing to me seeing all the innovation brewing around the Lync platform that Microsoft has created for smaller software companies like ProtonMedia.

We posted this video up on our website earlier in the week, but I wanted to call it out here as well. This is a case study video that Microsoft filmed about us and ProtoSphere, and shows what we're doing with one of our longest running customers, Merck and Co., Inc.

I'm very proud of all the work that has gone into this newest version of ProtoSphere and I'm looking forward to what the future has in store for our Microsoft partnership.

Recap of the Week Plus a ProtoSphere Feature Peek: Remote Controlled Media Boards

It's been an exciting week for us here at ProtonMedia... We started off at the TEAMPolycom event in Vancouver, showing what we've done to bring live video conferencing into ProtoSphere; we received wonderful news that we were the finalist in Polycom's App Developer Contest; and we presented ProtoSphere and its integration with Lync to a group of technology customers at one of Microsoft's New Era of Work launch events series in New York City; oh, and did I mention we launched our new website and branding and moved into a bigger office space?

So with all that, I thought it fitting to end this week with a new feature peek video. Something that we've been working on for a while that I think a lot of our training/learning focused customers are going to appreciate - a remote control for Media Boards.

I'll leave you with this...

Greetings from Vancouver!

This week we're north of the border at Team Polycom 2013 to share some of the latest work we've done in ProtoSphere. Stop by booth #36 (we're the ones with the avatars!) and see how we've integrated Polycom RealPresence Video into ProtoSphere.

I also want to take a moment to thank Peter Huboi over at the Polycom Community blog for posting some information about ProtoSphere in their solution showcase. There's some reading material that goes along with it that talks about the integration and what it means for our customers.
