Providea Conferencing Launches Providea Gateway Service at ILTA 2012, New Cloud-based Service that Connects Enterprise Video to Skype and Google Talk Users


CAMARILLO, Calif., Aug. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Providea Conferencing today announces Providea Gateway Service, a new cloud-based service that provides an open video conferencing network to allow B2B connectivity using any enterprise-grade video conferencing device (Cisco, Polycom, LifeSize) and consumer-grade endpoints such as Skype and Google Talk.

Although high-end video conferencing and telepresence is still growing, serving the needs of the large enterprise, the demand for interoperability with consumer-based video services such as Skype and Google Talk are becoming increasingly prevalent in the market. A pure cloud service, Providea Gateway enables the integration of consumer and enterprise video conferencing users from around the world without any capital layouts or complex integration.

"Customers need to collaborate on their own terms on a range of devices that provide a rich and consistent user experience," said Todd Luttinger, president and CEO of Providea Conferencing. "Providea's Gateway Service offers a cost-efficient, simple way to bring enterprise and consumer-grade users together with no additional hardware or bridging investment."

Visit Providea at the International Legal Technology Association booth 217 through August 30, 2012 in Washington, DC.
