Bringing quality, on demand, consumption-based services to the enterprise, Logicalis (News - Alert) UK has announced the launch of ImmersiV, a complete portfolio of cloud-hosted, Video-as-a-Service (VaaS) offerings.
Logicalis’ ImmersiV video as a service solutions provide business value in an immediate, predictable and cost-efficient model, with the emphasis on delivering maximum business value with minimal IT and capital cost impact.
Apart from providing a personal video assistant, the VideoPA, the new portfolio includes Video-to-Video Bridging (VtoV), Secure Video Meeting Rooms, Logicalis' own Managed Video Network (MVN). Without having to build their own discreet infrastructure, organizations can pay for video to match their exact usage needs, and can access services such as external bridging to other organizations, the company stated in a press release.
“Video is now considered a truly beneficial business productivity tool," commented Tom Kelly, managing director of Logicalis UK. “Whether for busy executives saving time on travel, meeting more customers and suppliers face-to-face, or using video to positively impact complex business processes such as supply chain management, the benefit of video is no longer in question. The only question many users now have is how quickly can I adopt video and how can I pay for it.”
Desktop users, small, medium and large room systems, and Telepresence (News - Alert) suites can now avail these services. Using high definition MOVI desktop solutions for individual users, the VaaS solution from Logicalis is a totally integrated turn-key video environment, and the full suite of ImmersiV services are delivered from Logicalis' UK-based cloud platform Built on Cisco (News - Alert)/Tandberg video infrastructure.
In October 2010, the company called IT departments out by developing a list of the top five myths IT managers need to understand to accurately assess a UC strategy for their companies. The company stated too many IT leaders think that no one in their organization wants or will use video, and that it’s simply going to eat up too much bandwidth to justify giving it a try.Raju Shanbhag is a contributing editor for TMCnet.
