WELLINGTON, Tuesday 3rd April 2012: Newly launched audio and video conferencing company, Smartpresence, has won the exclusive rights to distribute Vaddio products in New Zealand.
Vaddio is the world’s leading manufacturer of cutting-edge high definition PTZ cameras and automated camera tracking systems which enable meetings and lectures to be delivered in one place and broadcast around the globe.
Smartpresence, which launched just two weeks ago, was founded by Corey McCarthy and John Kandiliotis, who together have designed and deployed the majority of New Zealand’s managed service video environments in the past decade.
McCarthy says Vaddio is well known for their innovation in the industry and Smartpresence is proud to be partnering with them.
“This partnership will open up a whole new category for us. With our channel partners we’ll be distributing Vaddio’s latest product suite, Easy USB, which allows everyday PC users to transform their personal computer into an effective, affordable meeting room system,” says McCarthy.
With Easy USB we can now integrate high quality cameras and microphones with affordable soft codecs like Microsoft Lync, Skype or Google Talk further driving the adoption of video into our everyday working lives.
International Channel Manager for Vaddio, Sally Blank, says the US-based company was thrilled to expand channel efforts in New Zealand by partnering with Smartpresence.
“With Vaddio’s ever-growing product portfolio and Smartpresence’s expertise and strategic position in the marketplace we can now reach a broader scope of professional AV integrators in the area.”
Smartpresence has quickly formed key partnerships with leading telecommunications suppliers thanks to McCarthy and Kandiliotis’ expert knowledge and extensive experience in the video conferencing industry.
McCarthy developed the first managed IP video network in Australia and New Zealand in 2000 to national and international acclaim. John Kandiliotis is known as the ‘go-to’ man for video conferencing with over 17 years experience working with Government agencies, power companies, insurance companies, major banks and some of the largest companies listed on New Zealand’s stock exchange.
Smartpresence is an accredited, independent supplier, installer and maintenance partner of the world’s leading brands of video conferencing and telepresence systems, and has the most experienced video communications team in New Zealand. Smartpresence’s customer care services provide the highest level of technical support available in New Zealand with fully trained and accredited staff.
