Nuvias, Huddly sign pan-EMEA distie deal
Regional VAD to offer video conferencing cameras to channel partners in EMEA
Regional VAD Nuvias, has signed a pan-EMEA distributor agreement with a Scandinavian start-up Huddly for its ground-breaking intelligent collaboration camera.
Under the accord, Nuvias will supply to channel partners in the region the ultra-compact and stylish Huddly GO video conferencing cameras.
Designed and engineered specifically for unified communications (UC), team collaboration and new pervasive video applications, Huddly GO is fully-compatible with leading cloud-based UC platforms already in the Nuvias Unified Communications Practice portfolio, including Lifesize, BlueJeans and BroadSoft, as well as Microsoft Skype for Business and more.
"Today's video conferencing cameras are either cheap-and-cheerful or very high quality with a high price tag - but Huddly has spent a long time engineering the first intelligent collaboration camera with advanced features such as pan, tilt and zoom - but at an affordable price point," said Steve Harris, EVP at Nuvias UC. "With more and more organisations recognising the benefits of unified communications - beyond just time savings and cutting travel costs - the high-quality video delivered by Huddly improves the user experience and productivity of collaborative virtual meetings."
Harris said once channel partners have experienced the Huddly GO first hand, and seen how simple it is to integrate with their existing UC video platform, they will be able to offer a solution that is a true UC breakthrough.
Fraser Park, vice president, Sales and Strategy, at Huddly, said: "We are delighted to be working with Nuvias UC as a key distribution partner for EMEA. Their history of building high-quality UC experiences for the marketplace, along with their investment in a focused UC team, was a huge draw for Huddly."
Park added that Nuvias already has a strong cloud UC portfolio and holds an advantage to service the BroadSoft customer base in the region. "This presents an exciting opportunity for us to build meaningful meeting room experiences for this and all of their UC platforms," he said.
He explained that Huddly is building a portfolio of intelligent collaboration cameras and aligning this portfolio with existing offerings from Nuvias UC will provide customers in the region with new, simple to use and affordable collaboration bundles and experiences.
Huddly's pocket-sized, USB-powered camera, with dynamic light optimisation and visual noise filtering, delivers high-quality images whatever the location and conditions.
