Validates Avistar’s Virtualized Visual Communications Solutions, Commitment to Innovation and Partnership with Citrix
SAN MATEO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Avistar Communications Corporation (www.avistar.com), a leader in unified visual communications solutions, announced today that it has been recognized by Frost & Sullivan with the 2011 Global New Product Innovation Award in Desktop Videoconferencing.
The Avistar C3 Integrator™ solution has been designed to deliver a scalable desktop videoconferencing experience within virtual desktop infrastructures (VDI). Avistar’s approach to detecting the VDI deployment, automatically extending its media processing capabilities to the endpoint, while its desktop videoconferencing application runs within the virtual desktop, has been recognized by Frost & Sullivan as an important innovation in the desktop videoconferencing industry. In addition, Frost & Sullivan has recognized the Avistar C3 Conference™ solution for its ability to provide on-demand multiparty conferencing capabilities within virtualized and cloud solutions.
Stephen Epstein, CMO, Avistar, said, “Avistar has long been committed to delivering reliable, scalable and secure desktop videoconferencing solutions to its enterprise clients and technology partners. Because of this, Avistar clearly recognized the technical challenges as the unified communications (UC) and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) sectors started to converge. We’ve successfully developed and subsequently deployed the industry’s leading suite of virtual visual communications solutions to enterprises globally. This success and the growing demand for virtual visual communications led Citrix to license Avistar’s technology, which in turn has been recognized by Frost & Sullivan. Our innovation and leadership in this industry is vital to our long-term growth and success. Being recognized with this award not only makes us proud of our achievements, but also it leaves us with a great sense of accomplishment.”
Rob Arnold, Senior Analyst at Frost & Sullivan, said, “VDI solutions have proven to be effective methods of centralizing business productivity and line-of-business applications. However, bandwidth and performance challenges have hampered many attempts to support real-time communications applications in VDI environments. Avistar has addressed these issues by allowing organizations to reap the operational and user benefits of both VDI and videoconferencing simultaneously.”
