BurstPoint Networks, RADVISION, TD Garden and USO Join Forces to Offer Military Families Face-To-Face Communication and Live Streaming of Celtics Game

Who: BurstPoint Networks, RADVISION, TD Garden and the USO will connect local U.S.     servicemen and women stationed on Kandahar Air Field in Afghanistan with their families at Wednesday’s fifth annual “Seats for Soldiers.”

What: The USO and TD Garden will bring families of U.S. servicemen and women stationed        on Kandahar Air Field in Afghanistan to the TD Garden to watch the Boston Celtics play against the Toronto Raptors. Using a video conference solution powered by RADVISION along with BurstPoint Networks’ video content management and streaming platform, soldiers stationed in Afghanistan will be greeted by Celtics President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge shortly before the game.

Soldiers in Afghanistan will join the Seats for Soldiers event using RADVISION SCOPIA Desktop, and those in TD Garden will join via a RADVISION SCOPIA XT1000 HD conference room system. The connection will be hosted on a RADVISION SCOPIA Elite 5000 Series MCU, ensuring high quality communications regardless of network limitations. Leveraging BurstPoint’s VCP Conference Point’s patented ability to record and stream from video conferencing environments, the entire event will be streamed live to family members via the Internet or viewed during the game on the TD Garden Video Scoreboard. In addition, through BurstPoint Networks’ video-on-demand capabilities, families who cannot attend the event in person will be able to see their loved ones via a private web portal.

“As a father of a young Marine who served multiple tours in Iraq, this event is very near and dear to the BurstPoint family. We were happy to select a world-class partner like RADVISION to work with us on such a special evening,” said Tom Wing, vice president of Sales Operations and Customer Engagement, BurstPoint Networks.
