New 'Free Every 3', package gives small and medium-sized business everything they need for high-quality, affordable and easy-to-use video communications.

IVCi, a leading integrator of managed conferencing solutions, in conjunction with Polycom, Inc., the world’s leading provider of unified collaborative communications solutions, recently announced the availability of IVCi’s Free Every 3, an innovative, all-inclusive plan that offers small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) a turnkey solution for high-quality, affordable and easy-to-use interactive video communications. Free Every 3 combines the award-winning IntelliNet IP managed video conferencing network service and the new Polycom V500 video calling system to help SMEs and telecommuters realize the productivity, communications and accelerated decision-making benefits of business-quality video communications.

FreeEvery 3 offers customers a complete, end-to-end solution for high-quality video communications. For a flat monthly fee, customers receive Polycom V500 video calling endpoint(s) and unlimited use of the IntelliNet IP managed video conferencing network service. In addition, IVCi will help customers take advantage of technological advances in video conferencing equipment by providing plan users with a new V500, or its most recent Polycom equivalent, every three years at no additional cost.

“For many companies with fewer than 500 employees, cost and technical complexity have been barriers to the adoption of video as a viable communication solution within their organizations,” said Chris Böttger, vice president and general manager of IVCi. “We hope to change that with our Free Every 3 plan, which gives customers a flat, affordable monthly fee for unlimited, high-quality video communications. We provide the hardware, the network and management of these systems for a truly turnkey solution that includes the quality and functionality customers want, without the problems or costs associated with managing a video network across their enterprise.”

The recently announced Polycom V500 uses the latest video compression standard, H.264, to deliver TV-like quality video (30 frames per second) over reduced bandwidth. The V500 also includes a customizable, graphical user interface and streamlined remote control that makes video calling simple and intuitive as well as Polycom’s patented Siren 14 kHz wideband audio, which produces near CD-quality sound.

“Combining the new Polycom V500 with high-quality fully managed video over IP solutions like IVCi’s IntelliNet service will help expand the use of interactive video communications and open new markets,” said Bob Hagerty, CEO of Polycom. “Business-critical video communication is changing the way we work, providing instant access to information easily, reliably and often across multiple locations. Polycom is pleased to partner with IVCi to bring this complete solution to market for small and medium-sized enterprises.”

The Free Every 3 plan is immediately available from IVCi (www.ivci.com) at different video transmission rates dependent on customer requirements. With pricing as low as $899 per month (about the cost of a business-quality internet connection), SMEs will receive a complete video conferencing solution including the Polycom V500, the local network access equipment, back-up modem and line for remote management, T1 local loop with IP over ATM, network-based firewall security, real time proactive video and network management, advanced scheduling, automatic/manual/directory call launching, optional secure ISDN gateway services and enterprise-quality multi-point video services—all with a guaranteed 99.9 percent uptime and availability in more than 45 countries.
