The Internet2 NET+ Fuze gives everyone the freedom to meet, share and collaborate from anywhere.This easy-to-deploy, easy-to-use online conferencing and collaboration service works on any device from smartphones and tablets to computers to in-room telepresence systems. Wrapped within an intuitive user experience, you will discover a powerful, no-compromise online communication and collaboration solution.

MULTI-PARTY HD VIDEO CONFERENCING.

Party of twelve, your HD meeting is ready...
FuzeBox's crystal clear connectivity conveniently links numerous meeting participants and attendees at the speed of light. Connect up to 12 users at a time without sacrificing quality. Geography will not complicate your productivity, nor will it affect the pristine quality of your video conference.

PERPETUAL MEETINGS.

No scheduling required.
The Reusable Meeting feature allows professors to simply set up a single meeting room at the beginning of the semester, provide the link to students, and have them enter class with the same link for every session. No more need for professors to stress about scheduling meetings and communicating this to students multiple time a week.

RICH MEDIA SHARING.

One-time-only content uploading and storage.
Upload, stream and share gigantic files without a hitch. Zoom in and out rapidly or pan across your screen at lightning speed without compromising quality or pixelation. FuzeBox rich media content sharing supports industry standard image formats as well as other file types such as video, PowerPoint, Keynote, and documents.

DESKTOP AND APP SCREEN SHARING.

We help you sync-up, link-up and share stuff.
Give other meeting attendees access to view your desktop during meetings with Fuze Screen Sharing. Cross-platform compatibility means that PCs can seamlessly collaborate with MACs (and vice versa), even from remote locations. Conveniently share your computer’s desktop or just specific applications. You can collaborate over documents, provide remote technical assistance, or demonstrate your software products remotely.

REMOTE CONTROL.

We put the power and control in your hands.
Meeting hosts can offer meeting presenters the ability to access and control the host's computer from the presenter's computer. No other video conferencing software offers its users the ability to access another user's system from a remote location.

FUZE TELEPRESENCE.

Fuze democratizes your fixed room investments.
Fuze Telepresence extends into conference rooms with up to 1080p HD video. Fuze has unsurpassed interoperability with H.323 and SIP fixed room videoconference systems such as Polycom, Cisco/Tandberg, LifeSize, Sony, and Teliris. This innovative technology allows your company to extend its investment in hardware-based solutions with meeting interoperability and seamless fullscreen meeting integration from desktop, mobile, and tablet based devices to the video conference endpoints.

CHAT.

Let's take this outside!
Managed by the meeting host or by other attendees, the Chat feature allows you to make comments and notes privately (or publicly) during a meeting. Chat gives you the ability to alert other presenters and attendees quietly and subtly and is completely unobtrusive within FuzeBox's sleek user interface.

CROSS-PLATFORM COMPATIBILITY.

We interoperate and play nice with others.
PCs to Macs, Macs to PCs, desktops to tablets, tablets to iPhones and iPhones to Androids. FuzeBox technology makes it simple to collaborate in HD, pixel perfect quality on any device, at anytime, from anywhere.

MEETING RECORDING.

Log, record, and reuse your meeting content.
Ensure that your meetings live on forever with high-resolution recording and playback. If you need to log and record an entire meeting, or just certain parts of one on the fly, the Meeting Recording feature gives you the power and control to do so. Once the meeting has ended, you can securely publish the meeting online with it's associated media for reference later.

CONTENT PUBLISHING.

Throw up a billboard for everyone to see.
Publish all of your meeting content into a seamless link that can be easily sent to anyone who attended or could not attend your meeting. Once the host has provided a link to the content that was shared or discussed, that content can be viewed, downloaded, saved and reused. There is no limit to how many people can view your content publishing link for easy follow-up.

ANNOTATIONS.

Stay in the lines or color outside of them if you want to.
Annotate over any and all cloud-based content. Markup or add notes to pictures, PDF's, and PowerPoint presentations. Unique to FuzeBox, the iPoint controller acts as a laser pointer that lets you callout or highlight any specific content on your screen. Annotations can be reviewed later through the published meeting media or through the Meeting Recording feature.

AUTO-RECONNECT.

Pick up exactly where you left off.
All online meetings have the potential to freeze up or drop out due to connectivity and bandwidth issues, but do all brands have the ability to reconnect exactly where they left off? We think not! Auto-reconnect, one of the coolest FuzeBox features, is especially important for anyone Fuzing on a mobile network.
