Vu TelePresence, Vidtel Partner to Launch Multi-Party, Multi-Vendor Video Conferencing Service
TMCnet Contributing Writer
A new video conferencing service by Vu TelePresence is launching to offer cost-effective, multi-vendor video conferencing capabilities. The solution will target small- and medium-sized businesses looking to video conference but cannot afford or access the existing services.
Vu TelePresence has been a major innovator in video conferencing technology. Its use of VirtualFacets technology, which incorporates low bandwidth HD video, also supports interoperability with third-party systems. The Vu TelePresence Pro supports HD video of 720p and 1080p for both office and remote use.
By partnering with Vidtel (News - Alert), Vu TelePresence now bridges its services to include a variety of devices. The solution will be tailored to fit small- and medium-sized markets as a subscription service or use on a per-minute basis. Before the partnership with Vidtel, Vu users could only connect with other Vu users.
The addition of the Vidtel MeetMe service, however, now allows other standard and non-standard users to connect.
“Vu’s customer base will now have the opportunity to easily access the Vidtel MeetMe service, which provides them with an enterprise-grade conferencing solution that is both easy to implement, cost-effective and more complete in the array of video endpoints able to be used by participants,” said Vidtel CEO Scott Wharton (News - Alert), who believes the relationship with Vu will benefit the SME marketplace. “Vu’s market penetration will also serve Vidtel well by allowing it access to a wider customer base. As the pioneer of any-to-any cloud video conferencing service, Vidtel offers high level compatibility between diverse business-grade video endpoints like SIP and H.323 and consumer-grade video endpoints like Skype and Google (News - Alert).”
The service will be delivered through the Vu reseller network.
