London, UK (PRWEB) December 1, 2006
VideoCentric, who first introduced the Codian range of video conferencing bridging units into the UK and Europe nearly three years ago, has announced that it will be including the revolutionary new 6-port 4203 model in its range from December 2006.
The new 6-port model shares the same basic platform as the 4200 range, which also includes 12-port, 20-port and 40-port variants and offers advantages including:
a) its affordable entry-level price point
b) its plug & play deployment
c) its suitability for organisations with maybe 4 to 20 endpoints who occasionally require one 6-way conference or two simultaneous 3-way conferences
d) its flexibility for businesses with multiple locations and/or home workers connected over the internet where firewall traversal may be of concern
e) its centralised deployment in education where loading a multipoint feature on to a single classroom system would be impractical
f) its geographical independence -- organisations may ask VideoCentric to host their MCU for them avoiding a bandwidth bottleneck at any one of their own sites
g) in-built HD, siren-14 audio, H.264, hi-res H.239 graphics, Windows Media, Real & QuickTime streaming, transcoding for complete interoperability
h) its availability for an immediate on-site demonstration at customer premises through VideoCentric
i) its performance versus other MCUs on the market - rather than take anyone's word for it, serious customers are invited to ask for a loan unit to be delivered for up to 30 days free trial
Services to be offered by VideoCentric in support of Codian systems in 2007 include:
a) 2 technical help desks operated by some of the most experienced videoconferencing engineers in the UK
b) 24x7 dial-in test facility
c) advance hardware swap-out & on-site customer support
d) an expanded customer care department
e) free on-site customer demonstrations
f) free equipment loan
g) a complete end-to-end installation service
h) a new HD interoperability lab, testing systems from Polycom, Tandberg, Sony, Lifesize, Emblaze VCON, Aethra, RADVision & others.
David Shimell, Sales Director for VideoCentric, said, "Our technical experience with Codian and other MCUs, of which our staff we have installed over a 100, in schools, universities, the NHS, large corporates and small businesses, means that we can offer professional independent advice as well as a complete solution. Even where an organisation doesn't have sufficient IP bandwidth to host their own MCU, we can host it for them through our ISO27001 accredited Data Centre in the Thames Valley."
