The 5 great news of Lync 2013

So we have already lync 2013 preview, what new features we’ll have? First that i see,

in Lync 2013 we have multiparty  conferences, what it means? as we know in lync 2010 we can conference with many users, but video is displays only active parts and if you want to have multivideo display you cannot it or you must buy some gateways. In lync 2013 we have simultaneously displays up to five different participants’ videos, it’s great!


Second great news in lync 2013 is that,  we will have H.264 SVC support,  in lync 2010 we have hd 720p resolution in conferencing mode, but there was not when peer to peer video call. in lync 2013 there is hd 1080p in conference mode and also  in peer to peer video call.


Third is that, in lync 2010 web app there was not audio and video support, in lync 2013 you can enjoy the rich Lync Meeting experience, including multiparty HD video, voice over IP (VoIP), instant messaging, and desktop, application, and PowerPoint sharing. It will be also available from mac, So Linux users come back to windows, why are you bedevil yourself! :P


4th the best great news. From Lync Mobile make a Lync call, or even join a Lync Meeting with just one touch—from a Windows Phone, or an iOS or Android device. Stay productive on the go with voice and video over IP, PowerPoint sharing, and more collaboration capabilities.


5th is federation with lync: In organization where we have lync, there is also skype, people need it. after lync 2013 you can contact to your skype contacts already from lync 2013.
