Blue Jeans Network Launches Video Conferencing Service

Today, Blue Jeans Network announced the commercial availability of its cloud-based multi-party video conferencing service, which they’ve dubbed “any(ware) videoconferencing”. I reviewed their impressive video conferencing product last month. I liked how their platform bridges together various business video solutions from Cisco/Tandberg, Polycom, Lifesize along with consumer video offerings from Skype and Google Talk. Users each get a private “meeting room” in the Blue Jeans cloud that they can use to schedule, host, and manage meetings through an easy web interface. Users can join the meeting using anything from a high-end Cisco/Tandberg videophone all the way down to a user running Skype and a cheap webcam.

As part of its public release, Blue Jeans announced that it has raised $23.5 million from Accel Partners, New Enterprise Associates, and Norwest Venture Partners. In field trials since the beginning of 2011, they claim the subscriber base has grown through word of mouth. The company claims:

  • Almost 4,000 subscribers with ~ 500+ companies represented
  • Approximately 6,000 meetings, spanning 500,000 minutes
  • Over 15,000 participants in 1,000 cities in 100 countries

It’s an impressive product and the funding should help them grow and build more market awareness. You can read my recent review here.
