York Telecom Provides Complete Turnkey Videoconferencing Solution to SKIDATA, INC.

EATONTOWN, NJ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 2, 2005 -- York Telecom, a recognized expert in complex visual communication solutions and services, was selected to design, install and maintain a complete turn-key videoconferencing solution for SKIDATA. The solution was recently installed in the international company's New Jersey office as a means to minimize the costs associated with monthly trans-continental visits to its corporate headquarters in Austria without losing the face-to-face experience of meeting in person.

The system, which features Polycom's VSXs with 42" plasma monitors, utilizes an ISDN transport but is capable of working within an IP network, which allows SKIDATA to migrate at a later time. Its use of high resolution monitors and Polycom's People+Content allows SKIDATA to incorporate slides, graphics, audio and video files, or other standard PC applications while they're on a video call.

"By meeting with our overseas counterparts via video, we've easily saved at least the equivalent of 7 months of travel and related costs," said Anthony Gulotta, Vice President of Finance for SKIDATA when comparing what his company spent for the turnkey solution to their previous travel schedule.

"SKIDATA's experience epitomizes one of the key benefits of visual communications," said Ken Scaturro, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for York Telecom. "Technologies like videoconferencing allow companies to conduct meetings with the benefits of face-to-face communications without the hard and soft associated costs of travel. We're always pleased to see our clients reap the inherent rewards of such a solution."
