Interoute slashes cost of HD video conferencing with SmartPoint


Interoute, owner operator of Europe’s largest cloud services platform, has announced the launch of Interoute SmartPoint, an all-in-one video conferencing solution that reinvents the traditional way of buying and installing video conferencing equipment.

Interoute SmartPoint is a ready-to-use, out of the box video conferencing solution that gives customers the freedom to specify the components of their pre-configured package. The screen, camera and codec can all be chosen and the fully integrated system comes with Interoute’s own universal display stand, all delivered as one package. Interoute’s expertise ensures that all the video conferencing components available for selection are high quality, integrated to work together and cost effective. Thanks to this, Interoute SmartPoint can be up and running in minutes and at a fraction of the price of other packages on the market.

Buying and installing video conferencing solutions can be expensive and time consuming. It’s a process that often involves a team of installers to wall mount equipment and set up software for systems across several countries. Interoute SmartPoint offers a completely new delivery model, consisting of a free-standing aluminium base, which is set up with the customer’s choice of video conferencing technology. The solution comes as a package on a pallet, pre-configured, pre-assembled and ready to be installed. To use the solution, the customer simply secures the screen to the supplied stand and connects the power and network cables.

Mark Lewis, VP of Communication and Connectivity Product Solutions for Interoute, commented:

“We set out to reduce the complexity involved in deploying enterprise video conferencing by integrating all the key elements required into one plug and play solution. In achieving this, Interoute SmartPoint has slashed the cost of video conferencing for enterprise customers by 35% and made professional, secure video conferencing accessible for businesses everywhere.”
