Wallingford, Conn. – Nov. 23, 2009 – VBrick, the leader in IP Video across the U.S. Federal Government, today announced it will have a significant presence at the 2009 Government Video Expo in Washington, D.C. VBrick’s Director of Federal Sales and government industry veteran John Bowman will overview key IP Video related opportunities that government agencies can exploit immediately. In parallel, the company will survey event attendees on how they currently use video to carry out their agency’s goals and lead demonstrations of its VBrick Enterprise Media System (VEMS), from booth #216.
The Government Video Expo is the East Coast’s largest professional video event attended by more than 6,000 qualified government buyers and suppliers of video, AV, broadcast and multimedia technology.
John Bowman Takes the Stage
Bowman will educate attendees on how to achieve seamless integration across streaming, video conferencing and collaboration technologies by referencing real world examples and applications for the Federal marketplace. His address will take place on Wednesday, Dec. 2 from 3:00 to 3:30 pm ET.
According to Bowman, government agencies – including VBrick clients such as the Depts. of Energy, Defense, Homeland Security and others -- are adopting advanced video technologies now more than ever as high speed internet access continues to advance and proliferate. Bowman will offer insight into how to:
• Share streaming video to tens of thousands of users
• Incorporate IBM’s Sametime collaboration suite and plan for Microsoft’s OCS
• Extend video conferencing viewers from Polycom and Tandberg
• Collaborate across the enterprise about specific video and rich media content inclusive of video teleconferences
VEMS: Complete, Integrated IP Video Streaming Solution Demos
One new tool for the government’s video arsenal is the VBrick Enterprise Media System (VEMS), the only complete, integrated hardware and software system for distributing live or on-demand video and rich media presentations throughout a global enterprise. VEMS uses advanced bandwidth optimization to intelligently route users to the best location to receive video content, without impacting the performance of other networked applications. VBrick will demo VEMS’ key features for attendees eager to learn how to fully manage live or on-demand video assets. VEMS also includes a plug-in for IBM Lotus Sametime, allowing enterprise users to seamlessly integrate video with IBM’s flagship unified communications tool – from instant messaging and telephony to email and Web conferencing – and easily manage the content and distribution with VEMS.
Survey Says: IP Video Market Advances in 2010
