Have you ever used popular ‘video conferencing’ applications such as Skype or FaceTime? How did it work, especially if you tried to use them for serious work rather than just casual communication? Make no mistake, apps like these have undoubtedly transformed our lives – up to a point. They’re great for social or light business use.

We’re truly one-stop! Everything’s in-house

Everything’s easier because we do it in-house – from integrating AV equipment to building modifications… Whatever we do, we go the extra mile. Here’s an example.

Not long ago, a client, a top London barristers had serious compatability issues with their existing video conferencing system. It caused huge problems, because video conferencing is vital to their business. As we often see, the issues with outdated legacy systems came at a critical time.

Saving the day for a client

At short notice, we gave them access our Cloud-based service. This saved the day and impressed the lawyers; we just considered that we’d do to help any client. However, our gesture had an unexpected consequence. Because it showed the the power of the latest hosted video, our client invested in updated video conferencing – supplied, installed and supported by us.

We’re constantly exposed to developments in hosted video and media asset management (MAM). That means we’re well placed to advise on video conferencing and its integration with your other business systems.

Why’s that so important? Because choosing and buying hosted video-conferencing is rarely straightforward if you don’t do it all the time. Understanding the strengths and weaknesses of constantly-changing possibilities, and understanding how to deal with legacy compatability issues takes years to master.
