Organizations are rapidly expanding their digital video applications to communicate directly with employees, customers and other audiences while also increasing productivity through enhanced real-time visual communications. The partnership of VBrick and Media Publisher removes digital video complexity while providing the rock-solid performance that organizations demand.
Streaming Media West Conference, San Jose, CA (PRWEB) October 30, 2006
VBrick Systems, the world leader in digital video systems and solutions, and Media Publisher Inc., the leader in Enterprise Video Communications (EVC), today announced a partnership to provide global organizations with added simplicity and performance for digital video applications. The partnership provides an integrated, end-to-end solution that empowers organizations to create, manage and distribute digital video through a secure, reliable and scalable infrastructure.
The VBrick/Media Publisher partnership simplifies management of business-class digital video infrastructures, while also ensuring that users in low bandwidth environments -- such as remote employees -- easily access live and on-demand digital video content. Specifically, the partnership combines VBrick's powerful digital video appliances, video on-demand servers, and set-top boxes with Media Publisher's robust centralized management capabilities. The two companies will continue to develop and integrate new solutions to enhance IP video reliability, ease of use and management.
"Because there is no one-size-fits-all method to communicate, organizations require video, voice and data capabilities to reach audiences quickly and convey key points effectively," said Fred Geyer, CEO at VBrick Systems, Inc. "Organizations are rapidly expanding their digital video applications to communicate directly with employees, customers and other audiences while also increasing productivity through enhanced real-time visual communications. The partnership of VBrick and Media Publisher removes digital video complexity while providing the rock-solid performance that organizations demand."
"With this new partnership, we've taken another step in responding to market demand for a simple and scalable solution for managing and distributing video assets," said Rod Bacon, CEO at Media Publisher. "VBrick is a digital video appliance market leader and Media Publisher is the acknowledged Enterprise Video Communications innovator, with a complete solution for global companies looking to make investment decisions that support both their immediate-term and long-term needs."
Media Publisher offers non-technical users a way to create and manage their own live and on-demand events through a user-friendly interface, and leverages existing IT infrastructures via its Video Control Center (VCC) software platform. The VCC manages and controls VBrick's digital video appliances and systems, thereby centralizing all global digital video infrastructure management and reducing IT staffing requirements.
Media Publisher and VBrick have a proven track record enabling enterprise customers to leverage business video across departments, including corporate communications, sales and channel enablement, training/distant learning and human resources administration. The value of video in the enterprise is clear, and is quickly becoming a mission-critical component to maintain competitive advantage. Now more than ever, customers require turnkey, out-of the-box solutions that are scalable, reliable, and easy to use. The new Media Publisher and VBrick joint solution directly answers this market need.
Both VBrick and Media Publisher are recent Frost & Sullivan award winners. Frost & Sullivan cited VBrick as the global corporate encoder market leader in its 2006 "World Video Encoders," report while Media Publisher received the analyst firm's 2006 Customer Value Enhancement Award.
