ORLANDO, Fla., April 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Traditionally, the video conferencing demands of the small-medium enterprise (SME) market have not been met by telepresence and consumer-grade options. To serve that need, Vidtel, the any-to-any cloud video conferencing service provider offering enterprise-class video conferencing priced for the midmarket, has partnered with Western Canada's Matrix Video Communications Corp./MVCC, a leading technology partner, system integrator and supplier of broadcast and audiovisual equipment.


Matrix Video Communications has selected Vidtel's any-to-any cloud MeetMe Video Conferencing Service to serve its base of SMEs in Western Canada.

Vidtel's cloud solution breaks down the principal SME barriers of cost, know-how and usability for enterprise-grade video conferencing. The Vidtel solution offered by Matrix Video is priced in a range for businesses of any size, requires no IT expertise or additional capital expenditure beyond existing systems and is easy to use.
