Vidtel and AVer Bring Video Conferencing to Businesses of All Sizes with New Joint Solution

Vidtel and AVer Information have entered into a strategic partnership, resulting in a new joint solution, meant to bring powerful and affordable cloud-based video conferencing to businesses of all sizes. This solution bundles AVer’s EVC100 and EVC130 video conferencing endpoints with Vidtel’s Connect and MeetMe cloud-based video collaboration services.

"Again and again, we hear that customers are looking for solutions that are easy to use," said Alex Doyle, VP of Marketing at Vidtel. "This joint solution makes intra-business and business-to-business video collaboration simple and powerful: with the EVC line and Vidtel Connect, parties can connect instantly without complex dialing or confusing user interfaces it's as easy as dialing a phone number. And with the EVC line and Vidtel MeetMe, companies have an easy way to collaborate with their partners, customers and suppliers, using the AVer EVC to seamlessly connect to applications like Skype, Google Talk, or WebRTC."

AVer’s EVC100 caused a lot of excitement when it was announced earlier this month as it is the industry’s first sub-$1,000, enterprise-class HD video conferencing solution. As such, the offering is, on its own, a solid choice for smaller businesses that require big business functionality.

Meanwhile, Vidtel Connect offers easy-to-use, cloud-based, point-to-point video calling, allowing customers to leverage video calling without the need for more advanced network infrastructure — such as H.323 gatekeepers, SIP proxies or gateways. MeetMe, on the other hand, provides cloud-based, multi-party video conferencing that is extremely flexible as it supports the use of SIP, H.323, WebRTC, Skype and Google Talk on both fixed and mobile devices.

WebRTC support is relatively new for MeetMe as Vidtel only embraced WebRTC at the beginning of this year. However, it is an important addition to the service, not only because it broadens MeetMe’s reach to any device with a WebRTC-capable browser installed, but also because WebRTC use is expected to grow quickly in the coming years.

Indeed, even research firm Disruptive Analysis recently agreed that WebRTC will change everything in terms of telecommunications trends.
