From awkward to awesome: Video finally living up to its potential
Anyone who has worked in an office knows the experience of sitting through clumsy and ineffective video conferences.
For years, it seemed an idea with so much potential lacked the technological know-how to deliver on execution.
But according to Rob Spray, General Manager, Avaya New Zealand, times have changed.
"There is a difference between being completely aware that you are speaking to someone via video - the consumer-grade experience - and actually being able to almost forget that you aren't face-to-face," Spray said.
"You can only get that kind of seamless experience if the visual and audio quality is great. But these days it is possible, and the application for business can be transformational."
Free video conferencing for resellers
Avaya is a global provider of business communications and collaboration systems and services. Earlier this year, Avaya and distributor Distribution Central teamed up to launch a program designed to help resellers expand their businesses through the sale and support of video systems.
To continue enabling the reseller channel, Avaya and Distribution Central have created a new program, launching in July. This program offers resellers the chance to win prizes including gift cards and iPad's when they conduct live end user demonstrations.
"We're excited about this program with Avaya as it gives our partners the opportunity to try, for themselves, a technology-leading secure video solution," said Nick Verykios, Managing Director, Distribution Central.
"We've partnered with Avaya since 2009, and as an exclusive distributor for Radvision in Australia and NZ we're well-placed to support the Avaya channel across the company's entire product range - including its video conferencing solution."
