The companies also have completed interoperability testing between Vidtel MeetMe and AVer's two high-def room solutions, the HVC110 and HVC310. Both include PTZ camera, codec, microphones and remote control. The HVC110 is a single HD endpoint while the HVC310 adds an integrated 4-way MCU and meeting recording.
Vidtel’s MeetMe connects not only standards-based SIP and H.323 systems but also Skype and Google Talk users. It will enable AVer resellers to connect their customers' video conference rooms with other room systems, video phones, mobile and desktop platforms for video communication and collaboration.
The companies said the systems are low-cost and within reach of small businesses. The Vidtel service starts at 15 cents per minute or $149 per month. The AVer HVC110 is $2,499.99 and the HVC310 is $3,499.99.
“AVer VC room systems are the perfect complement to Vidtel cloud service for SMB customers," said Karl Dahlin, AVer's vice president of sales and business development. “By combining HD room systems with cloud based infrastructure, desktop and mobile client support at these price points, the power of video conferencing is finally accessible to small and medium businesses everywhere.“
