Avistar has announced that Frost & Sullivan (News - Alert) has recognized the company with the 2011 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation.
Where encoding and decoding is performed, Avistar's H.264 codec and client plug-ins are provisioned to the user endpoints. Citrix's infrastructure conducts processing functions in the data center and communicates with the Avistar (News - Alert) codec at the endpoint and the Avistar visual communication application running within the virtualized desktop, while Avistar's bandwidth management capabilities optimize bandwidth consumption. Thus, in VDI environments, they leverage their own areas of expertise to resolve the resource allocation and performance issues that have hindered the scalability and performance of real-time communications applications.
“Avistar introduced the C3 (News - Alert) Integrator for Citrix earlier this year and has successfully deployed the solution among enterprise clients around the world," says Frost & Sullivan Senior Analyst Rob Arnold. "It leverages Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop to enable enterprises to move their desktop computing resources into the cloud or data center and to deliver Avistar software-based desktop videoconferencing applications remotely to distributed user endpoints.”
For both their business and communications applications, Avistar's collaboration with Citrix enables enterprises to embrace virtual desktop infrastructure technologies. This capability aids considerable operational expenditure and capital expenditure savings, which are the core value propositions of convergence. Avistar was the first company to market with a sophisticated virtual desktop videoconferencing solution that is cost effective to acquire, deploy and maintain, the company stated in a press release.
In November 2010, TMC (News - Alert) recognized the Avistar C3 Business Pro Edition with the 2010 INTERNET TELEPHONY Excellence Award. Avistar Communications Corporation is a provider of unified visual communications solutions. The award was presented to the company by INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine. The Avistar C3 Business Pro Edition is available with all of Avistar’s feature-rich desktop endpoints, such as the Avistar C3 Communicator solution, and delivers an all-software and fully comprehensive videoconferencing infrastructure.
