The sudden increase in use has exposed security gaps and allowed unauthorized access to customer data.
Recognized as the father of modern esports, Munoz and his team created Beacon to integrate people into augmented environments.
Beacon®, a revolutionary audiovisual communications platform launched in July, has announced that it has surpassed 320,000 worldwide accounts for its BeaconX video conferencing service. Beacon’s state-of-the-art encryption safeguards communication, ensures confidentiality and privacy, and offers a significantly enhanced user experience by leveraging foundational elements of the multi-billion-dollar videogame industry.
Dallas-based Mass Luminosity, a global technology, research and development company, began working on Beacon six years ago with three core principles: security, quality and simplicity. Widely recognized as the originator of modern esports, Founder and CEO Angel Munoz and his global team designed Beacon to augment natural interaction through exceptional video and voice communication with the goal of restoring natural communication and empowering people through technology.
“In its few months, Beacon has already exceeded our expectations. This dramatic adoption rate proves that users truly value their security and privacy and are tired of being spied on and having their personal information misappropriated,” Munoz said. “In light of the recent 85-million-dollar court sanction against Zoom, consumers are becoming aware of these dangers and demanding safer experiences.” Users are hailing Beacon, commenting that the service “transcends the current field of communication,” and to “forget Zoom and Facetime, this is the go-to app for you.”
As the global Coronavirus outbreak forced people around the world to work from home, video and voice conferencing use skyrocketed. This sudden increase in use exposed security gaps and allowed unauthorized access to customer data, which according to Bleeping Computer, resulted in “over 500,000 Zoom accounts being sold on the dark web and hacker forums for less than a penny each, and in some cases, given away for free.”
“Video and voice conferencing industries have been forced into accelerated growth, although existing platforms have a surprising disregard for privacy and security and little concern for user experience,” said Angel Munoz, developer of Beacon and founder/CEO of Mass Luminosity, a Dallas-based global technology, research and development company. “Beacon was designed to augment natural interaction through exceptional video and voice communication, while safeguarding confidentiality and protecting user identity. Based on the same augmented reality seen in video games, Beacon pushes technology to the max making you feel as though you are in the same room with another person... getting you as close to a real experience as possible.”
Recognized as the father of modern esports, Munoz and his team created Beacon with a mission to integrate people into augmented environments and built it from the ground up on three core principles: security, quality and simplicity. “It will change your perception completely of what video communication should look and sound like, with security measures that leave others in the dust. Beacon was developed with human perception in mind and a purpose of bringing people together in a way that has truly never been seen before,” Munoz added.
With particular application for numerous industries, including the finance, government, medical and legal communities, Beacon offers instant connection and reconnection, Ultra HD video, 3D binaural audio, widescreen aspect ratio, higher resolution and frames per second, color saturation, a plethora of interactive tools, and a patented transfer technology that rivals competitors with its four-second connect speed.
It is simple to use with just one click in a web browser, making it accessible to everyone from students through to CEOs. Beacon’s state-of-the-art encryption guards communication, ensuring confidentiality and protecting it from prying eyes. Even more unique is Beacon’s ability to instantly translate in up to 82 languages.
