IVCi Changes the AV Business Again, This Time with Apps
In a quiet corner of the Hauppauge Industrial Park, which with its more than 1,300 companies is the largest such center of innovation on Long Island, and by some metrics, is the second most sizable nationwide, there is a company those in the AV industry may have heard of, called IVCi. Most probably think of it as "that videoconferencing company," and that would be accurate, since when it was founded by Robert Swing nearly 20 years ago, it was one of the first AV enterprises to place at its foundation a business framed around those services.
Having thus built a managed conferencing business that represents 15% of its business, with a 99.99% meeting success rate , IVCi was naturally ahead of the curve on the collaboration trend, rebranding with the tagline "Collaborate Anywhere" last year. IVCi has the hardware chops to support that notion, running a national operation from its New York headquarters, with Full Functionality Testing enabling AV setups to ship from its loading docks and arrive onsite as close to "plug and play" as is technologically possible.
Sure, sure, the story sounds familiar. But this is the Hauppauge Industrial Park. If you think that IVCi operates like every other company, I'd just like to give you a little advanced warning to adjust your expectations for some completely new ideas, so your brain doesn't experience cataclysmic tremors like mine did when I visited the company's headquarters at the end of the summer.
