VBrick Adds Senior Unified Communications Executive to Its Board of Directors

Microsoft's Gurdeep Singh Pall Will Bring Expertise in IP-Based Communications

WALLINGFORD, CT--(Marketwire - October 6, 2009) - VBrick announced today that enterprise technology veteran Gurdeep Singh Pall has joined the company's Board of Directors. Pall currently serves as corporate vice president for the Unified Communications Group at Microsoft Corp. and is responsible for vision, product strategy, business development and R&D for Microsoft's unified communications offerings.

Pall will play a critical advisory role as VBrick's management team continues to advance its award-winning IP video platform within the enterprise market. Pall is in a unique position to provide insight on the transformation of communications given his current role at Microsoft where he oversees industry-leading unified communications offerings including Microsoft Office Communications Server, Microsoft Office Communicator, Microsoft Office Live Meeting and Microsoft Office Communications Online.

"IP video streaming is quickly becoming a preferred modality in content and communications, signifying a transformation similar to the change the Internet heralded for information access," Pall said. "It became clear during my first meeting with company executives that VBrick has an all-in-one IP video solution and veteran executive team necessary to establish streaming video as a core enterprise communications tool."

VBrick's IP video solutions are deployed across a broad range of corporate, government and education institutions. VBrick's complete product line is designed to create a foundation on which customers can pervasively deploy live and on-demand rich media-based applications -- without impacting other critical network applications.
