Joint Partnership Allows Videré to Integrate VBrick's Award Winning Streaming Technology With Videoconferencing Solutions

QUINCY, MA--(Marketwire - September 15, 2008) - Videré Conferencing, the premiere provider of integrated, high definition, audiovisual (AV) and networked solutions and services, and VBrick Systems, Inc., the industry leader in online streaming video, today announced a partnership in which Videré Conferencing will resell VBrick's suite of enterprise video systems as part of their world-class videoconferencing solutions and service offerings.

This relationship has already proven successful as educational institutions such as Greater Lowell Technical High School in Lowell, Massachusetts and Smith College of Northampton, Massachusetts have entered into agreements to benefit from this best of breed technology. Videré Conferencing has placed VBrick products and services under their existing Massachusetts State Contract partnership.

"Selecting VBrick and Videré as our providers was an easy choice as their partnership allowed us to implement best in classroom video services," said Michael Barton, Director of Media and Professional Development at Greater Lowell Technical High School Lowell Technical High School. Establishing a viable VBrick system for our students is a key part of curriculum. With the help of VBrick and Videré, we were able to launch our system as well as seamlessly integrate a solution that could also accommodate all of our needs."

In addition to streaming six television channels into the classroom, Lowell is also using the technology for videoconferencing, channel guide information and scheduling live and on-demand broadcasts.

"From the start, our partnership with best of breed video provider VBrick has been a win/win situation for us, as many of our customers are taking their HD videoconferencing solutions to the next level -- requiring digital capture and distribution of their videoconferencing content," said William Benoit, Co-Founder of Videré Conferencing. "Our customers in the local government and education sectors have been particularly focused on gaining this capability."
