VBrick, a leader in IP Video solutions, is coming to Government Video Expo next week and will present an overview of key IP Video-related opportunities that government agencies can exploit immediately.

John Bowman, VBrick’s director of federal sales, will take the stage of the Presentation Theater at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and educate attendees on how to achieve seamless integration across streaming, video conferencing and collaboration technologies by referencing real world examples and applications for the Federal marketplace. His address will take place on Wednesday, Dec. 2 from 2:15 to 2:45 p.m. ?

?According to Bowman, government agencies—including VBrick clients such as the Depts. of Energy, Defense, Homeland Security and others—are adopting advanced video technologies now more than ever as high speed internet access continues to advance and proliferate. Bowman will offer insight into how to:?

?• Share streaming video to tens of thousands of users
?• Incorporate IBM’s Sametime collaboration suite and plan for Microsoft’s OCS
?• Extend video conferencing viewers from Polycom and Tandberg
?• Collaborate across the enterprise about specific video and rich media content inclusive of video teleconferences?

One new tool for the government’s video arsenal is the VBrick Enterprise Media System (VEMS), a complete, integrated hardware and software system for distributing live or on-demand video and rich media presentations throughout a global enterprise. VEMS uses advanced bandwidth optimization to intelligently route users to the best location to receive video content, without impacting the performance of other networked applications.

VBrick will demo VEMS’ key features for attendees eager to learn how to fully manage live or on-demand video assets. VEMS also includes a plug-in for IBM Lotus Sametime, allowing enterprise users to seamlessly integrate video with IBM’s flagship unified communications tool—from instant messaging and telephony to email and Web conferencing—and easily manage the content and distribution with VEMS. ?

?In addition to Bowman’s address, VBrick will survey conference attendees on today’s most pressing challenges around communication in the workplace. The survey will gauge how important attendees see video for meeting their goals, how often it is used and in what capacity. Stop by VBrick’s Booth at GV Expo (No. 216) to participate.
