Why Avistar

Avistar made it smarter

When we started in 1994, a relative handful of companies delivered desktop videoconferencing solutions. The promise of visual communications was obvious, but at the time these companies delivered solutions that were expensive, inconvenient, and unreliable. Avistar has invested over a million man-hours to deliver what your organization needs: a desktop videoconferencing experience that is reliable, easy to use, economical, and looks great. Under the hood, we took what we believe was a smarter approach: software-only technology combined with the most efficient bandwidth management techniques that we refined over years of experience solving the challenges of delivering high quality video to and from large numbers of desktops across an organization and over business critical networks. And our results are visible – a superior desktop videoconferencing experience that gets used more fully than any other videoconferencing offerings.

Leading UC providers easily integrate Avistar technology

Our customers, across many industries, need the interoperability, scalability, and bandwidth / policy management that are built into Avistar videoconferencing. Our partners, who include some of the world’s leading technology firms, integrate or resell Avistar videoconferencing with their own software applications. Technology leaders like IBM, Logitech, and LifeSize deploy our solutions within theirs, to offer you video-enabled applications and business processes because we license Avistar videoconferencing to them as components. They are able to quickly integrate our flexible, cost-effective, high-definition videoconferencing with their own solutions.

Our product line is logically organized to meet your needs, whether you are a financial institution or manufacturer, or an OEM or reseller. As an end user, you will first want to know about the endpoint experience – is it easy to use, reliable, fast, and high quality – and then select and pay for just the capabilities you require. Your IT group will want to understand the optional capabilities like multiparty calling and how to have them work in heterogeneous environments, to ensure that end users will use the infrastructure efficiently and productively.
