Audio visual and ICT solution provider, Evidence Technology, has launched a new video conference managed service called CyberNET.
The solution works over the public Internet and employs DSD-approved encryption. It incorporates next generation technology that adapts to the users’ environment and aims to enable government and enterprise customers collaborate effectively using video conference technology.
As an empanelled provider of video conference services to the Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy, any Federal, State or Local Government organisation can access Evidence Technology’s services directly.
Evidence Technology CEO, Peter Carter, said the solution enables its customers to access the benefits of the NBN and be part of the digital economy.
“This is important in the context of video links and the NBN. Conventional video conference technologies were designed for controlled environments and managed networks,” he said.
Carter mentioned that the solution would support government personnel who bring their own devices in to work.
“We make it possible for government to use any device [BYOD] and connect to their existing or legacy technology platforms – they don’t need to throw anything away.”
According to Carter, the industry needs a multifaceted and multi-platform that works anywhere and at any time, making the most of available resources and adapting to the environment where they are being used.
“There has been a paradigm shift in underlying video conference technology and audio visual signalling methods. This has generated huge turmoil in the market.
“We have seen Cisco buy Tandberg, Logitech buy LifeSize, and Polycom and others scramble to acquire companies that meet rapidly changing market needs. The market is being reshaped by new entrants like Vidyo whose impact has been described by the industry as disruptive,” he said.
The DBCDE video conference panel service agreement allows any Federal, State or Local Government organisation access to the CyberNET service and Evidence Technology audio visual systems integration capabilities, potentially until December 2016.
