Pexip, a global disrupter in scalable video conferencing technology, today announced its partnership with Smartpresence, a New Zealand AV solutions provider.
“We are excited to be partnering with Pexip, whose innovation is very powerful. The ability to deploy multi party voice and video bridges with virtual meeting rooms to standard server hardware, provides our customers the scalability and piece of mind to grow their video infrastructure as their requirements change, without the need for traditional large expensive and proprietary hardware”, said Corey McCarthy, Director of Product & Services of Smartpresence. “We are experiencing huge growth in videoconferencing as we move video outside of the meeting room environment. Emerging standards such as browser based WebRTC will further drive this, and the flexibility of Pexip is industry leading”.
