(TechTarget) The Cisco Webex app’s back-end infrastructure and user interface is being updated and thus laying the groundwork for the vendor to expand support for augmented reality, virtual reality and other advanced video-centric technologies. The redesign, which will be released throughout August, prioritizes video and simplifies scheduling, calendar management and in-meeting controls. Beyond that, the vendor has enhanced the cloud infrastructure that powers the video conferencing platform.
Sri Srinivasan, vice president and general manager of the vendor’s team collaboration group said, “We’re putting the plumbing together for intelligent experiences across the board,” Srinivasan said. “I don’t think we’re ready to talk about everything AR/VR [augmented reality and virtual reality] on Webex yet, but think of it as the base plumbing.”
