WCCI Takes on Video Conferencing

Wind Currents Communications, Inc. (WCCI) recently added V2VIP video phone services to its portfolio of products within the healthcare solutions vertical. The new addition from the successful communications company will redefine video calling in the SMB and healthcare markets by bringing affordability to the VoIP video communications industry.

V2VIP leverages Texas Instrument's DaVinci dual-core digital video chip, and bundles it with WCCI's solutions that work on existing infrastructure. "[It] operates affordably and reliably over existing network infrastructures, even firewalled environments," according to WCCI CEO John Monahan. "Eliminate the huge upfront costs and complexities in video telephony. V2VIP(TM) service is a fully managed desk top video phone solution."

V2VIP's claim to fame is the small amount of bandwidth needed to run their solution, compared to their bandwidth-hogging counterparts. Their new service will require as little as 150Kpbs per call. Also available with V2VIP is AV transmissions up to 30fps, global extension-to-extension calling, auto-attendant, color LCD, and an option to use existing phone numbers.

The release of WCCI's new software release comes shortly after the company's 14th anniversary, marking their continual effort to create cutting-edge Voice-and-Video-over-IP solutions.

WCCI's V2VIP services for small-to-medium companies will focus primarily in the SMB, tele-medicine, tele-helthcare and government verticals.
