BlueJeans Network unveils Huddle for simpler business video communications
On the list of frustrating office technologies, videoconferencing surely ranks near the top. BlueJeans Network Inc. aims to change that with a new service it’s announcing today.
The Mountain View, Calif.-based company’s service, called Huddle, is a cloud video system that BlueJeans promises will add easy videoconferencing to any room at a relatively low cost. Huddle’s software can work with standard gear that customers already have on hand: Windows personal computers, iPads or NUC mini-PCs from Intel Corp., cameras such as those from Logitech International S.A., and speakerphones. Technology retailer CDW Corp. also is expected to provide a package of hardware that works with Huddle.
