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

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.

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 BIL3 accredited security.
