First Video Communications (FVC) is pushing hard in the Middle East video conferencing space. The regional provider of rich media communications solutions reckons that video conferencing has come a long way in recent years and that the Middle East market is ripe for further projects. FVC has a track record of success, having already installed Polycom’s videoconferencing equipment across Ajman University of Science and Technology’s campuses in Ajman, Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Fujairah. Working as a Polycom partner in the Middle East, FVC offers a range of products and solutions from the vendor. Polycom, which is headquartered in the UK for its EMEA operations, has a range of offerings including video conferencing, voice conferencing, web conferencing, IP telephony, network infrastructure systems and video management systems. The company sells through an extensive network of distributors, resellers and service providers across EMEA. K.S. Parag, regional director at FVC, said: “Video conferencing in the Middle East has come a long way in recent years, and Polycom has been at the forefront ever since. The educational sector is a prime focus for us and we are confident in providing Ajman University with avant-garde solutions and services to complement their level of proficiency in the Middle East educational field. Through the launch of Polycom’s first ever Arabic user interface for video conferencing, we hope to further strengthen our relationship with them.” FVC has now been working with AUST for two years, supplying video conferencing equipment and services that have connected teachers and students across campuses, enhancing AUST’s ability to provide professional development through meeting and training while keeping travel expenses down to a minimum. AUST has already implemented the Polycom View station 128, Polycom View station FX and Polycom Gateway 3000 solutions. Mohamed Salman, IT director at AUST, said: “Although our main vocation at Ajman University is education and research, we are devoted to investing in real time, world class facilities, technologies and services beneficial to our students and staff. Video conferencing has proved to be a key element in linking all the entities of the University network despite the distance.” “We are pleased to be associated with FVC and Polycom as the quality of systems and services provided are excellent. We look forward to working with them more closely in the near future to help us bridge the way for a new generation of students,” he added.
