When there is audible background noise in a meeting, participants who are not speaking can be accidentally switched into the main speaker position. This can be distracting and takes away the focus from the person speaking. 

Voice Focus improves the way in which voice activity is detected by better distinguishing between actual speech and background noise.

Advanced speech-aware audio gating technology called softmute reduces background noise produced by conference participants who have their microphones on but are not speaking.

*Please note that the audio noise is not completely eliminated with Voice Focus or softmute.

Enhancing your video sharing with audio

When sharing your screen during a video meeting, you can now enhance video sharing with audio by using your system audio or a browser tab.

Enhancing our interoperability solutions

Google Meet interop enhancements


Improving the Google Meet interop experience:

  • Google Meet's noise cancellation feature is now supported - allowing you to filter out background noises such as typing, closing a door, room echo etc. on Google Meet meetings

  • Video room participants can now use DTMF/keypad controls to control the meeting layout during an ongoing video meeting
  • Transcribing audio prompts and visual indicator are now displayed on the video meeting room device for Google Meet meetings

Microsoft Teams interop enhancements


Management of your Teams Connector certificate just got
easier:

  • The certificate is now stored in the Azure key vault and can be updated without having to redeploy the Teams Connector.
  • New alarms are raised on Pexip Infinity when the Teams Connector certificate is due to expire within the next 30 days, and if it has expired. 

Restrict sharing for attendees

Depending on meeting roles, attendees may not have permission to share a presentation. Content presentation is now stopped if a CVI participant's role is changed to 'Attendee' while they are currently presenting in the video meeting.

 


Improving Privacy & Security


Client TURN server provisioning and new TURN server option:

When defining the Client TURN servers that will be provisioned to Connect app WebRTC clients, there is a new Enforce media routing via a client TURN server option.



Improving the Admin experience 


New languages support for the Infinity Management interface

The Pexip Infinity Administrator interface now supports both Korean and Traditional Chinese languages, adding to the existing supported languages: English (default), Simplified Chinese, Korean and Russian.

Further enhancements for direct media between two WebRTC participants (Tech Preview) 

  • A conference can now be escalated beyond the two WebRTC participants but this means the call is no longer a Direct Media call and instead is a standard, transcoded call with media sent via Conferencing Nodes. 
  • Support is now provided for chat, Connect app clients that are registered to Pexip Infinity, and joining as audio-only, and presentation and control-only connections.
  • Media stream details and a Direct Media status flag are available when viewing participant status/history via the Administrator interface and ​calls can now be monitored via Live View.
