NEW YORK, Oct 5, 2011 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) -- IOCOM, a leading provider of universal video collaboration solutions, based in Chicago, is pleased to announce another large corporate customer has fully integrated IOCOM Collaboration services with their existing Tandberg/Cisco Videoconferencing and Telepresence devices. IOCOM demonstrated their solutions at the Interop NY conference at the Javits Convention Center in New York, October 5-6, 2011.

This leading energy customer combined the highly flexible IOCOM service with their fixed conferencing assets to provide full cross platform usage. They integrated these systems to allow drilling rigs to communicate directly with existing videoconferencing devices at their headquarters.

"The IOCOM solution makes integration a straightforward process. We had been told by the tech department of the traditional systems that they could not interoperate but it came together quite well as we had expected," noted Gary Refka, IOCOM Vice-President of Operations.

By integrating these technologies, customers can leverage the IOCOM platform's flexibility and ease of use with existing fixed assets. IOCOM's high quality, enterprise level, video collaboration software is used by energy customers for drilling in remote locations where traditional VC is not practical. These systems can communicate across the company regardless of the endpoint manufacturer. This combination improves corporate communication resulting in quicker decisions made with more relevant and timely information.

Interoperability between platforms has long been a mainstay feature of the IOCOM product line. IOCOM believes communication should be a tool available to everyone, not just to a few with access to select equipment in specific locations. By interoperating with other manufacturers, this idea is expanded to include existing VC locations.

"The IOCOM software is a completely scalable solution on its own, from handhelds to full room systems; however, many customers already have existing infrastructure and technology in use. It is critical for our customers that we are easily interoperable with their existing systems," said Jim Miller, Vice-President of Sales.


IOCOM provides software to keep people connected through video, audio, and data conferencing. Its trusted solutions work with virtually any internet-enabled device including room systems, desktop PCs, notebooks, and mobile devices. IOCOM focuses on delivering high performance solutions that provide superior quality audio and video without the cost and complexity of proprietary systems.
