Zycko Ltd and Touchline Video Ltd, formerly known as ReView Video Ltd, have formed a partnership to support the reseller community in the UK.
The two companies will be pooling their knowledge, expertise and resources, aligning their technical and product management teams, to offer resellers and integrators significant value add services across both voice and video solutions.
David Galton-Fenzi, Group Sales Director, Zycko Ltd, said: "Zycko has, for some time, been involved with voice and video solutions, and the tie up with Touchline allows us to support our video customers with even more value. The video conferencing market is growing at a phenomenal rate and there are also increasing signs of video technology becoming even more integrated with the traditional IP network - the depth of understanding between Zycko and Touchline offers resellers an extensive resource"
Video Conferencing is a growing market. In 2005 it was worth about $1.15 billion globally, according to ICT Frost & Sullivan. Now the market is expected to reach $3.1 billion by 2010, growing at a compound annual rate of 22.1 per cent. Another research firm Gartner is even more bullish, projecting video conferencing technology to be worth $12.8 billion by 2011. This growth has in part been driven by the success of YouTube and the rise of social networking sites such as Facebook and MySpace, making video todays tool for smart, cool users. In fact hundreds of millions of YouTube videos are watched each day, and organisations are routinely posting their corporate videos on the site as a means of tracking comment and generating greater user familiarity.
Barry Cross, Managing Director, Touchline Video Ltd, comments: "Our resellers will benefit from a shared portfolio of market leading technologies from Global brand leaders. Our current offerings can be supplemented by the strong VoIP and network solutions from Zycko. We believe that together, we will provide our resellers with an unrivalled range of products and service options for their current and future needs."
