Los Gatos, CA (PRWEB) October 31, 2006
Persony, a cost-effective web conferencing solution provider, and ThinkEngine Networks (AMEX:CGN), an innovative provider of carrier-grade Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and TDM audio conferencing solutions, today announced they have entered into a reseller agreement providing for the distribution of Persony VShow software with the VSR 1000 Voice Services Router. Under the agreement, ThinkEngine will immediately offer a branded version of Persony VShow web conferencing software with its VSR1000 Voice Services Router to enterprise and conferencing service provider customers.
Persony VShow uses a standard web server to host meetings and dramatically reduces the cost of web conferencing. Attendees can join a meeting with a Flash®-enabled web browser and do not need to download any software.
ThinkEngine provides next generation audio conferencing solutions at next generation pricing. The VSR1000 conferencing solution is scalable from service provider to enterprise customers ranging from hundreds to thousands of ports.
"We like the ease-of-use of Persony VShow," says Mike Wixon, ThinkEngine's Vice President of Product Management. "The integration of the two products is seamless, as Persony's solution uses standard web servers and browsers. Our customers can deploy the solution very easily and quickly."
"We believe web conferencing should be just like web hosting, which you can get from many service providers," says Eric Chen, CEO of Persony. "The partnership will allow more service providers to offer high quality audio and web conferencing at very affordable pricing."
In early 2007, Persony and ThinkEngine plan to further integrate the two products, offering an integrated audio control panel during web conferences. This will give conference moderators single click access to both web and audio conferencing.
