Video Conferencing

Tempura portfolio has grown to cater for the demands for business grade videoconferencing across 3 main platforms (Although there are hundreds) the primary solutions are based upon either Zoom Cloud services, Microsoft Office 365 with Skype for Business moving to Microsoft Teams or standards based video where systems are connected to Cloud services that integrate with Microsoft.

Standards based videoconferencing systems are typically appliance based systems, whereas Zoom and Microsoft are PC Based solutions utilising USB Connected devices to create bespoke room systems. Zoom provide a gateway service to allow standards based systems to be connected to Zoom cloud or to make calls to and receive calls from Zoom users. Cloud providers such as StarLeaf, Videxio, Blue Jeans provide standards based Cloud services that allow calls to be made and received from Microsoft Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams users. The Cloud services often come with or have optional desktop, mobile and tablet apps that provide personal videoconferencing software for those not using Microsoft.

Once the technology has been decided on then the systems are typically split to cater for different room environments. Most commonly these are Huddle Rooms with seating for 2-4 people, Small Meeting Rooms up to 8 people, Medium rooms up to 20, Larger Meeting Rooms over 20, Board Rooms and Large Environments such as lecture theaters.

Different manufacturers have different focuses with differing solutions. For this reason we work with multiple manufacturers of videoconferencing systems, and have multiple manufacturers of equipment that enhances or creates solutions depending on the environment they are being deployed into.

Tempura have provided solutions for videoconferencing since 2009 when we started distributing products and services from Vidyo and Lifesize, and work with them and more vendors to provide the perfect solution to our partners client requirement. From USB cameras to connect to PCs for personal use or for room based videoconferencing using existing videoconferencing software, through to dedicated video appliances that are either connected to a cloud based service to provide additional features right through to integrated videoconferencing technology that can sit within the enterprise that works with integration and development software kits to provide a seamless video experience to existing solutions.

Our Microsoft surface device partner status enables us to provide solutions paired with Surface Pro and Surface Hub technologies to work within Skype for Business or Microsoft Teams environments, complimented with Logitech camera and audio solutions. 

For clients using videoconferencing software and that want a room based PC dedicated we offer the TempuraConnect Group PC, with a choice of cameras from AVer, Logitech and Sony and display options from Samsung to support either existing video software such as Zoom or Skype for Business or any of the vendors we carry with applications pre-installed on a Windows 10 Pro operating system NUC PC or supplying the cameras and audio for existing PCs or Laptops.

StarLeaf provide 2 sides to their portfolio, one dedicated to native Skype for Business & Teams, the other based on standards based video paired to the StarLeaf Cloud. The StarLeaf cloud supports connectivity from almost any standards based video with full integration including directory and extension based dialing as well as Skype for Business and Teams integration.

Lifesize Integrated Icon Room systems paired to Lifesize Cloud subscription services are a very compelling solution to provide ease of use operation and scale at room and desktop level. The latest System Warranty services include end point registration cloud services, and with optional Skype for Business Gateway services, Cloud VMR and Recording can be added to the subscription, providing low reoccurring subscription costs. The latest systems provide 4K videoconferencing and 4k data sharing.

Yealink have released their 2nd Generation systems with the VC200, VC500, VC500 Pro and VC800 room systems, along with YMS to enable public or private Cloud based infrastructure, and the VC880 Integrator unit.
