Technical Innovation Launches TI VMRplus as a True Cloud Services Solution

June 13, 2014 | Telepresence Options


TI partners with Videxio to power TI's Virtual Meeting Room Plus, a flexible, scalable and affordable cloud-based collaboration service that increases workforce productivity through enhanced collaborative communication

Technical Innovation, a provider of AV integration, collaborative communications and digital media technology, today announced their new hosted cloud video service, TI VMRplus. This portfolio of subscription services addresses several real world business issues with flexible, user-friendly subscription solutions; all delivered over a global QoS video network and distributed datacenter architecture. A true cloud services solution.

"We are committed to bringing innovative, leading edge solutions to our clients" commented Kevin Powers, President of Technical Innovation. "Over the last 2 years we have been monitoring the movement to cloud services and have test marketed a few solutions along the way. We have also listened closely to our customers who have told us that they required a reliable, secure video service that video-enabled their mobile users, and provided them with a self-serve, collaborative meeting experience capability engaging Microsoft Lync users, traditional group videoconferencing systems and WebRTC. TI VMRplus, powered by Videxio, is the perfect cloud service to meet this emerging market opportunity."

The TI VMRplus portfolio of cloud video services present TI clients with three different monthly subscription services:

  • Virtual Meeting Rooms (VMR's) for interoperability and unlimited multiparty conferencing involving up to 30 participants using standard videoconferencing, MS Lync, browser-based video (WebRTC) and/or PSTN/audio-only.
  • Personal Video Accounts video enable a distributed and mobile workforce on the device of their choice for unlimited point-to-point calling. Any device. Any location. Any network.
  • Endpoint subscriptions for Cisco, TANDBERG, and Polycom videoconferencing systems can be provisioned to the service in a clever, automated manner providing the user all of the benefits that come with videoconferencing infrastructure without the cost and complexity that can come with ownership. Subscribers enjoy unlimited calling, firewall traversal and an always current video directory under a monthly subscription plan.

"With the robust build out and continued expansion of Videxio "Points of Presence" around the globe, Technical Innovation's Video Product Offering demands the best in class video communication transport network," added Chris Johnson, CTO. "TI's customers have always demanded a well-integrated product set, and the TI VMRplus Cloud solution underscores our commitment to simplicity, power, and long term quality. We are very pleased in the alignment of our video cloud products with a respected, well tested, and world class technology team."

Karl Hantho, President of Videxio, Americas, echoes his comments, "We are thrilled that Technical Innovation has selected Videxio as their cloud video services platform. Market research shows that more and more customers are choosing videoconferencing as a service and, in fact, several researchers are forecasting annual growth rates of 40-50% over the next five years. Rising customer demand is clearly associated with the flexible subscription models, interoperability and low investment risk associated with VCaaS. In this partnership we will work closely with the TI sales and engineering team to help educate their customers to the rapidly changing usage and consumption models and work to provide the optimal video subscription plans to meet their needs."

TI VMRplus cloud video services are immediately available to Technical Innovation clients. TI invites those interested to contact a TI VMRplus representative to schedule a demo.
