IVCi Selects Conferserv to Deliver Rich Media Conferencing and Streaming Services

Leading Solutions and Conferencing Service Provider to Resell Conferserv Enterprise Suite and Provide New Hosted Services Over IntelliNet

Hauppauge, NY and Los Gatos, CA - August 14, 2003 - International Video-Conferencing (IVCi), (www.ivci.com), a leading integrator of video conferencing, audio/visual, and IP conferencing service solutions, and Conferserv, (www.conferserv.com), a leading provider of rich media conferencing and streaming solutions today announced they have signed an agreement for IVCi to resell Conferserv's Enterprise Suite of software and provide new hosted IP conferencing services using the Conferserv Service Provider Suite.

The Conferserv Software Suite enables customers to use their existing video conferencing end-points, both group systems and desktops, to record and stream meetings and interactive presentations. Conferserv allows every video conferencing system within an enterprise to function as powerful multi-media studios for applications like CEO Webcasts, leveraging customers existing network and video conferencing assets and protecting their original investment.

Under the agreement, IVCi will resell the Conferserv Enterprise Suite directly to customers. In addition, IVCi will license the Service Provider Suite to offer new services over IntelliNet, IVCi's award-winning intelligent video collaboration and conferencing network. Customers will have access to managed services for recording and streaming meetings and interactive presentations for a fixed monthly fee, while receiving the same high quality, security and reliability they have come to expect from IntelliNet.

"Conferserv is excited to be working with an industry leading partner like IVCi," said Karl Dahlin, VP of Business Development for Conferserv. "Not only are they on the forefront of providing value to customers as a leading integrator of IP conferencing solutions, they have the ability to offer customers a choice between two business models, licensed product or managed service. Being successful is about making sure customers get what they want, and managed services like IntelliNet are a very important part of what they are demanding today."

"We are excited to be able to offer managed streaming services as a value added offering to our customers," states Chris Böttger, VP and General Manager for IVCi. "The Conferserv solution together with our IntelliNet service provides organizations with a cost effective way to communicate to every desktop with full motion video, audio and presentations. Applications such as training, briefings, product launches, seminars and presentations are delivered with maximum impact for a fraction of the cost of traditional methods. In addition, IVCi can provide all of this without the hassle of our customers having to build or support it themselves."

"Video conferencing and streaming media are natural complements of one another, especially as the two converge on enterprise IP networks," said Christine Perey, Principal Analyst with PEREY Research & Consulting. "Conferserv has leveraged expertise in both disciplines resulting in user interfaces and workflows that are intuitive and elegant. Combining that with a leading integrator and IntelliNet will result in highly satisfied customers."
