Avistar is a rising star, as IDC’s (News - Alert) latest report, “IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Enterprise Videoconferencing Equipment 2012-2013 Vendor Analysis,” named it a contender. This is following an impressive performance in the first two quarters of 2012, with new products, delivery milestones and nice growth in revenue.
Helping it earn its title is the fact that the Avistar C3 (News - Alert) Conference MCU, according to the report, provides the same functionality as hardware-based MCUs at a fraction of the cost. It also addresses industry issues surrounding media sharing, video interoperability and data collaboration. Avistar (News - Alert) has been receiving a good deal of praise lately, as industry analysts such as Frost & Sillivan have been reporting positive things about it; being named a contender is just a point in case.
Recently, Avistar won the Unified Communications Product of the Year Award from TMC (News - Alert), thanks to its Avistar C3 Integrator solution. It also received the Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation in Desktop Videoconferencing, with its all-software based platform that operates in a virtual desktop or server environment as well as telepresence suites, mobile solutions and UC platforms.
“Leading the contender category within the most recent IDC MarketScape reports reinforces our go-to-market strategy, which includes working with OEMs like Citrix, IBM and others as we grow our business,” says Stephen M. Epstein, CMO of Avistar, in a statement. “It also validates our technology leadership, which is why our solutions are used by Fortune 2000 companies including 3M (News - Alert) within manufacturing, BHP Billiton within resource and mining, Deutsche Bank within financial services, and US Federal agencies within the government sector.”
We can look forward to seeing great things from Avistar in the future, although it already has some great products out now. IDC chose wisely when it named Avistar a contender; let’s see how high it can rise.
