February 4, 2015 | Telepresence Options


Flexible managed cloud solution, launched by industry experts, securely connects any professional video conferencing, desktop, mobile, Lync, Skype & WebRTC client

Leading Video Communications Integrator, VideoCentric, has today announced the launch of its new cloud based service offering, VideoCloud 365, combining highly secure & resilient infrastructure from world-class vendors, including Cisco & Pexip, deployed in the UK's most energy efficient Data Centre.

Launching February 2015, the service will provide the highest quality multipoint video conferencing available on the market today, seamless Microsoft Lync (Skype for Business) interoperability with any professional video conferencing endpoint, as well as connecting together any standards-based video system, desktop software, mobile video application, WebRTC, Skype or Office 365 user, and even audio only users. The service also provides managed firewall traversal & SIP to H.323 traversal, which can also be subscribed to as stand-alone services.

The highly flexible cloud solution is expected to greatly improve video collaboration ensuring all distributed teams can collaborate effectively, in the highest quality HD environment, on whatever device or with whatever software they choose, whether in the boardroom, the office, at home or on-the-go. As one of the only services that will fully interoperable WebRTC access, customers using VideoCloud 365 can also expand the benefits of high quality & resilient business video communications into business-to-consumer communication, providing a platform for greatly improved customer services - named as one of the 3 top trends for UK business in 2015.

David Shimell, VideoCentric's Managing Director commented, "VideoCentric launched its first generation VideoCloud services way back in 2007, and we have learnt from experience and user feedback that UK customers are focused on quality, connectivity & security. Professional users have told us they want a service that is scalable, and one which is developed and managed by a team of individuals who understand what they are doing and have the equipment and knowledge to support them properly here in the UK when problems arise". He went on to add, "Although we have worked with other leading cloud providers over the last few years, and will continue to do so, the new VideoCloud Service for 2015 sets itself apart from the rest and provides customers with the same experience in the cloud as they would get with an on-premise deployment, but with even greater levels of interoperability for PC, Mac, iOS, Android and professional VC/Telepresence users".

Over the past 20 years, Video Conferencing has been proven to significantly reduce travel costs, greatly increase productivity and generate more personal relationships with customers, colleagues & clients. However, concerns over upfront costs & the knowledge required to deploy a professional solution within a secure network has encouraged the development of new professional subscription-based managed video services such as VideoCentric's VideoCloud to enable organisations to realise ROI within the first months of operation.

With recognised certifications including ISO9000 Quality, ISO27001 Security, ISO50001 Energy Management & PCI DSS, backed by a 100% uptime SLA and the use of electricity generated only from renewable sources, VideoCentric is encouraging customers visit & tour the new home of VideoCloud, a 36 acre campus, dubbed as a "Super Green Facility" with enhanced government-grade security.
