InFocus® Corp. and Vidtel, Inc. were awarded InfoComm 2011 Best in Show - Partnerships by Telepresence Options for their partnership to deliver cloud service for any-to-any video conferencing on InFocus products, beginning with Mondopad. The partnership beat out over 950 exhibitors at InfoComm 2011, which showcased leading-edge visual communications and collaboration technologies to more than 32,000 audio-visual professionals from over 90 countries.
The InFocus-Vidtel partnership breaks ground in the middle market for business-grade video conferencing with a revolutionary solution: A unique all-in-one giant collaboration tablet incorporating disruptively priced, any-to-any cloud video conferencing that is aimed at small and medium sized businesses (SMBs). “The partnership bundles Vidtel’s cloud-based multi-point bridging services with the Mondopad for SME clients that would like to have multi-point capabilities but don’t want to buy and babysit an MCU,” said Telepresence Options’ Howard Lichtman.
The Mondopad is designed to meet the needs of the small-medium business market as an all-in-one device with large, HD multi-touch screen, Windows 7 PC, secure WiFi, whiteboarding, and a 720p camera for $5949. Vidtel’s cloud service enables business-class video conferencing between free consumer video conferencing applications such as Skype and Google GTalk and enterprise-level video conferencing systems. Mondopad won Telepresence Options’ InfoComm 2011 Best of Show for Videoconference Appliance.
At InfoComm, IT executives, systems integrators, distributors, and industry analysts reacted favorably to the InFocus-Vidtel offer as a high-quality, cost-effective solution for small-medium-sized businesses. “The partnership between InFocus and Vidtel enables AV and collaboration resellers to offer an end-to-end visual collaboration solution that fits within almost any budget,” said Ira M. Weinstein, senior analyst and partner, Wainhouse Research in a release about the partnership. “The cloud-based nature of the Vidtel offering means that SMBs can enjoy high quality videoconferencing without having to invest in back-end technology and experienced support resources.”
InFocus recently announced a significant distribution channel to drive sales for the InFocus-Vidtel partnership. Ingram Micro has been selected as the exclusive authorized distributor to market the InFocus-Vidtel offer through its network of value-added resellers (VARs) and managed service providers (MSPs).
