Multi-codec products were first introduced in 1999 by TeleSuite Corporation and shortly thereafter by Teliris, but the market did not gain any significant recognition until October 2006 when Cisco announced the CTS 3000. With its entry into the videoconferencing space, Cisco turned the videoconferencing industry on its head by promoting "telepresence" as the greatest invention since the discovery of fire.
The multi-codec market has grown significantly since 2007 and has penetrated many vertical segments, but the growth has also been erratic. Today's market is dominated by Cisco, with Huawei making a play to unseat Polycom as the number two multi-codec vendor. Teliris plays the role of industry specialist and innovation leader with a multi-codec system based on scalable video coding; Magor offers enhanced data collaboration, high profile, and SVC support; and Brightcom offers a range of client/server multi-codec systems based on the VP8 codec. Finally LifeSize and Radvision, as well as Polycom, offer telepresence platforms for systems integrators to design custom solutions.
