Meeting Room Solution from Dolby and BlueJeans Brings Together the Finest in Audio and Video with an Amazing User Experience for More Productive Meetings

MOUNTAIN VIEW – October 2, 2018 - The first cloud service to connect desktops, mobile devices, and room systems in one video meeting, BlueJeans Network, Inc. today announced the availability of BlueJeans Rooms with Dolby Voice®. Through this strategic partnership, Dolby and BlueJeans are providing integrated, world-class cloud audio, video and hardware solutions to organizations that demand their workforce have all the tools necessary to conduct the best meetings possible.

The modern workforce is driving organizations to adapt to new approaches for communication and collaboration, such as huddle rooms and meeting pods, in support of a dynamic work culture that prefers simplicity and flexibility. According to Frost & Sullivan, huddle-room meetings will grow exponentially to represent almost 70 percent of all video conferencing room meetings by 2022. To support this growth, huddle rooms need to be equipped with technology that provides seamless workplace collaboration experiences. BlueJeans Rooms with Dolby Voice is a breakthrough in audio for online meetings, allowing attendees to hear clearly and communicate naturally, as if they were in the same room, regardless of where they are located or whether they connect from a mobile or desktop endpoint or room system.

“As the global leader in genomics, we’re using DNA to solve for the world’s most complex issues—ranging from cancer research to agriculture,” said Norm Fjeldheim, SVP, CIO, Illumina. “Our ability to empower a healthy future is dependent on how easily our teams are able to work together to innovate at the intersection of biology and technology. Just as every breakthrough has opened up a new world for us, technology has helped get there. With BlueJeans Rooms with Dolby Voice, our global network of employees are able to communicate and collaborate on a whole new level so that we can continue to push the boundaries of our imagination and democratize access to the power of genomics.”

In the new world of business, user experience reigns supreme. Aligning with user expectations is key to driving collaboration and satisfaction in the workplace. With a differentiated suite of room system offerings that include intelligent video, world-class audio and enterprise-grade manageability, BlueJeans Rooms with Dolby Voice adapts to diverse workspaces and work styles to enable meetings to start on time and drive meeting productivity unlike any other room system on the market.

“Today’s workforce requires purpose-built spaces of all sizes for collaboration that promotes idea creation and sharing. By combining our extensive audio engineering expertise and Dolby’s history of creating spectacular experiences, we’re working with BlueJeans to revolutionize room-based meetings,” said Andrew Border, Vice President, Communications Business Group, Dolby Laboratories. “The new Dolby Voice Room converged room solution marries seamlessly with BlueJeans’ visionary room management controls to clear the clutter and elevate meeting room participation.”
