AVI-SPL Video Conferencing

Overview

Video Collaboration Solutions for the Way You Work

Collaboration through video is essential in today’s business environment. And it’s no longer confined to the meeting room. People expect to connect from wherever they are: the home PC, the office desktop, and mobile device. But it’s not enough to bring people together from multiple locations. They want to work on shared documents at the same time. That’s what video collaboration means today.

AVI-SPL designs, builds and supports video collaboration solutions that can scale with your company as it grows. Such solutions can included dedicated meeting areas, including the huddle spaces that are finding much favor.

Our Virtual Meeting Room (VMR) service is a cloud-based offering that doesn’t require any hardware to install or software to download. Meet whenever you want from wherever you want. Our VMR is interoperable with the standards-based protocols, as well as Microsoft Lync.

AVI-SPL holds Microsoft Gold Communications competency, which allows us to sell and deploy Microsoft solutions such as Lync and Office 365.

Because we’re an end-to-end provider, we can deliver every step of the solution process, from creating a implementation plan to installing systems and providing ongoing support.

As you explore the tabs in this section, you’ll read about the practical impact our video conferencing solutions have had for clients, the types of communication technology we implement and support, and our accreditations.

Around the world, there are over 1.1 million installed video-conferencing solutions, with $22 billion projected to be spent on video conferencing over the next five years.

Previous barriers to integration including cost and lack of interoperability continue to disappear. No longer is video conferencing a drain on bandwidth that slows down other critical processes. Video is easier to scale, growing with your business. It’s also valuable as organizations reduce their infrastructure, putting greater emphasis on collaboration through a variety of endpoints, such as immersive telepresence, home-based desktop, PCs, tablets and smartphones.

Today’s organizations also have a variety of options for their video conferencing solutions, depending on whether they want on-premise systems, cloud-based solutions or a hybrid model. Contact AVI-SPL to discuss the right system for your company.
