AVer, Vidtel Partner to Offer Cloud-Based Video Conferencing

The video conferencing cloud service offered is less than 10 percent of the cost of internally owned infrastructure, the companies say

AVer Information, a producer of video conferencing solutions, and Vidtel, a provider of cloud video conferencing services, have partnered to market Vidtel MeetMe cloud services via the AVer reseller channel.

AVer and Vidtell completed interoperability testing between their products before entering into the partnership, and the companies say clients can save money by using the joint video conferencing product they offer rather than using their existing video conferencing equipment. The Vidtel MeetMe cloud service “frees customers from the expense and challenge of supporting on-premises equipment traditionally required for multi-party video conferencing,” the companies say.

Vidtel’s approach enables users to seamlessly connect not only standards-based session initiation protocol (SIP) and H.323 systems, but also Skype and Google Talk users, the companies say. With the Vidtel MeetMe solution, AVer customers can now access cloud services to connect video conference rooms with other room systems, video phones, mobile and desktop platforms for “high quality video communication,” the firms say.

Aver offers two high definition room-based solutions that include a pan, tilt and zoom (PTZ) camera, codec, microphones and remote control. The HVC110 is a single HD endpoint while the HVC310 adds an integrated four-way multipoint control unit (MCU) and meeting recording.

“By combining HD room systems with cloud based infrastructure, desktop and mobile client support at these price points, the power of video conferencing is finally accessible to small and medium businesses everywhere,” said Karl Dahlin, an AVer vice president of sales and business development.
