MURRAY HILL, N.J., Sept. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Glowpoint, Inc. (NYSE MKT: GLOW), a leading provider of cloud-based video collaboration, network and support services, today released Glowpoint Now, a reservationless videoconferencing service, enabling anyone to easily collaborate anywhere, on any device.

"Organizations have different video collaboration requirements. Some are looking to extend video beyond the four walls of the company to a mobile workforce and business partners. Others need high touch concierge services for board meetings and executive interviews, while others are looking for videoconferencing on-demand or a video meeting room off site. In most cases, our customers require a combination of services, along with support and other services to help them collaborate with colleagues, business partners and customers more effectively," said Peter Holst, Chairman and CEO, Glowpoint Inc.

Holst added, "Many reservationless videoconferencing startups lead you to believe that as video becomes more pervasive, support requirements diminish or go away.   The exact opposite is true.  The demand for secure, enterprise-grade video collaboration is expanding globally, and, with that expansion, the need to provide business-class services and support is increasing. Glowpoint Now, in combination with our other video collaboration and support services, meets our customers' needs today and in to the future."
