Stampede today announced a new partnership between itself, Sony and Surf Communications Solutions, Inc. that gives Stampede dealers an easy solution to implement low-cost video conferencing systems that can utilize mobile devices. The announcement was made by SURF NA President & VP of Sales Ilan Bluvstein and Stampede President & COO Kevin Kelly.
"We are pleased to have Stampede expand the exposure of our proven video conferencing solution in the growing U.S., Canadian and Latin American markets," Bluvstein said today. "SURF's Orion-MCU provides high-quality and reliable connectivity between remote offices, traveling and work-at-home employees, as well as partners, providing great value to enterprises as they reduce expenses and increase productivity."
The new Stampede bundle couples SURF’s Orion-MCU with two Sony PCS-XG80/9DS HD Visual Communications Systems to provide high definition video conferencing that is affordable for any size business. The Orion-MCU video conferencing bridge provides access from standard-SIP or H.323 based room systems as well as soft clients on desktops, smartphones, and tablets, making a BYOD strategy possible for any business that saves time and money, while making it easy to conference from around the globe!
According to Kevin Kelly, "No one has more experience in making high quality, affordably-priced video conferencing solutions available to the mass business community than Stampede. As such, we recognize the unique value proposition that the SURF Orion-MCU video conferencing solution offers our dealer network, and we’ve bundled it with the best Sony video conferencing hardware to provide a simple setup solution that allows any size business to dive into high definition video conferencing. The Orion-MCU also provides an easy way to attend VC meetings from mobile platforms, so it can greatly expand the flexibility of a company’s new or existing Sony video conferencing room system.”
SURF’s Orion-MCU video conferencing solution will be available with Sony’s best-in-class video conferencing room systems starting July 1, 2013.
