Wire One Communications Expands Offering With HD Capabilities

DAYTON, OH--(Marketwire - March 11, 2008) - Wire One Communications, an industry leader in providing video conferencing services, announces today its ability to support High Definition (HD) hosted video conferencing services. While many industry offerings only zero in on HD hardware or network requirements, Wire One provides a full range of HD video conferencing solutions, including equipment, bandwidth, and support services.

Wire One, with over 20 years of industry experience, is a reseller of top industry conferencing equipment including Polycom, TANDBERG, and Cisco TelePresence systems. Wire One specializes in delivering reliable and cost effective web-hosted services around these equipment solutions, with a focus on simplifying the use of HD video and other conferencing communication platforms.

Wire One's support offerings for HD video conferencing have three major service components. These include One Care, a program which addresses maintenance needs; IP Video Connect, which responds to secure, high quality bandwidth requirements; and Conference Production and Help Desk support for high-end conferencing and support needs. Theses programs provide customers with the worry-free benefit of having a single-source provider to service all of their HD video conferencing requirements.

"Customers have always cited low quality video as one of the barriers to expanding their video conferencing use. Now that they've seen what HD can look like on their TVs, they want that same crispness in their conferencing," explains Jeffrey Prestel, Sr. VP of Sales and Marketing for Wire One. "With today's HD equipment and the move to high-bandwidth IP connectivity, the quality concerns are going away. This, coupled with Wire One ability to provide a host of easy to use services, makes video conferencing more attractive than ever to companies."

"Better quality conferencing, along with the fact that video conferencing helps reduce travel costs and greenhouse gas emissions, has led to increased use of equipment. With that comes the need to bring in a partner that can manage day-to-day video conferencing needs and the entire HD conferencing environment," notes Bob Seidel, Wire One's VP of Marketing. "This is why Wire One offers HD video conferencing in the ASP hosted video arena, in addition to Managed Services for customers owning their own MCUs."

Wire One's industry-recognized conferencing services include full and automated call launching and on-demand solutions, dedicated network options, facility design and readiness, expert installation, Remote Equipment Monitoring (REM), and 24x7x365 Help Desk support. Wire One leads the industry with providing easy to use and reliable remote management tools, conferencing services, and expert support personnel that create superior video communication experiences.
