VideoCentric has announced a channel partner, systems integrator and reseller program for its VideoCloud managed video conferencing portfolio, which it launched in October 2012.
The VideoCloud Partner Model has been created to open up the full range of VideoCentric services and options to partners, including virtual rooms, firewall traversal, ISDN gateways, two-way data collaboration, point-to-point HD desktop, Skype (News - Alert)/Lync/SIP.H.323 transcoding and global white-glove services.
"The time VideoCentric has spent on unbiased vendor research, extensive testing and bringing together the best components from around the world is invaluable to UK integrators who would like to offer a service portfolio but don't have the resources to do so themselves," said David Shimell, managing director of VideoCentric Ltd.
VideoCentric will offer them its full interoperability suite, with more than 30 HD and SD video conferencing endpoints from various vendors, legacy & ISDN systems, network infrastructure products, third-party professional and consumer desktop video conferencing software, collaboration equipment and a number of cloud-based video services.
"The VideoCloud portfolio really excites us as a business,” said VideoCentric customer Dave Tobutt from VC 2000 Ltd. “Over the years we have had enquiries from many potential customers hoping to hold video conferences, however, they have not had the infrastructure to do so by traditional means. This new service opens the door to satisfy requests from prospective customers. We know VideoCentric can support us and our customers, and we know our partnership will be based on not just a great portfolio, but also of mutual understanding, communication and trust."
Partners also gain access to VideoCentric's support, round-the-clock test dial-in facilities, and a one-click "cloud line" with direct access to shared trial rooms, and VideoCentric's cloud administration and technical team.Tara Seals has over thirteen years of experience as a journalist. Her areas of expertise cover the waterfront of the service provider segment, especially mobile networks, devices and applications; and video infrastructure, content and broadcast models.
