The need for high quality collaboration solutions throughout enterprise markets is increasing rapidly. This is seen through an increasing adoption of Video Conferencing and Telepresence as well as web based collaboration solutions. Pixavi has brought innovative mobile collaboration products to the market since 1999. With the recent launch of the Xcaster the ST5000 HD communication device, Pixavi redefined mobile collaboration with the introduction of High Definition video conferencing live from virtually any location. 

By introducing the Xcaster EX 5000, a Zone 1 certified version of the Xcaster 5000 series, Pixavi are bringing this technology to customers within chemical plants, oil and gas, shipyards, mines and other environments requiring strictly certified electronic equipment.

Featuring HD video capabilities and Laser collaboration technology as well as state of the art video conferencing and streaming technology, the device operates on standard WiFi networks and requires no extra software on the receiving side to operate.

Pixavi CEO/CTO, Christian Rokseth stated: "The high end imaging features of the Xcaster makes the product quite unique. Featuring HD video quality and 5 megapixel image capture, the Device stands out from any solution in the market. Another strong point is our comprehensive protocol support, including SIP and H.323 support as well as the ISMA PC streaming standard. This means that our customers can connect the device to any video conferencing endpoint, MCU or PC media player utilising open standards, without the need for expensive and or proprietary software solutions. Most of the video conferencing endpoints in the corporate environments are still operating on h.323. Pixavi has recognised this fact and is offering H.323 HD support in the device software. At the same time, we have a comprehensive SIP offering. the user can swap between SIP and H.323 seamlessly. "

Pixavi sales director, Thomas Zaubi explains: Zone 1 certification provides optimum flexibility for our customers. Other solutions available are limited to Zone 2 which causes restrictions in usage. Combined with the HD video and the multi megapixel photos, we got a superior offering.

Pixavi has successfully tested interoperability with HD endpoints from leading vendors like Tandberg, Polycom, Lifesize, Sony, Cisco and Radvision. The Xcaster can also stream live video to PC endpoints and players like VLC media player, Windows media player and Quicktime, hence requiring no extra software on your computer to receive the live HD video stream from the Xcaster.

The Xcaster has been certified according to both ATEX and IECEx for Zone 1, Gas group IIC.

The EX5000 is available today, with a start price tag of $13950. In addition, Pixavi is offering 3 levels of service, depending on the customer needs, including hosted and managed services like Go Live 2.0, SIP services and hosted video conferencing software solutions.
