MILAN, Italy, October 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Making HD video conferencing simple and affordable and supporting its diffusion as a communication and collaboration standard throughout companies of any size and industry: it's been less than a year since Mirial started its partnership with BCS Global, but the two companies already seem to have reached their goal.

BCS Global began to integrate Mirial's Video and Voice Mail and Automated Video Attendant technology into its Virtual Presence services at the end of 2007; at the same time, the company responded to the customers' request for greater flexibility while connecting from home offices, remote locations or while traveling by enriching its iView service with Mirial Softphone's HD desktop videoconferencing, basic MCU and H239 features.

The next planned steps are meant to sustain the natural evolution of these services: with the introduction of Mirial's MCS session border controller within BCS Global's infrastructure, the diffusion of desktop videoconferencing and desktop telepresence is truly brought to a global level, while the PSE Video Contact Center integrates consistently with BCS Global's philosophy by providing a direct, personal, one-to-one eye contact with the end users, reducing their frustration and bettering the overall service experience.

"Mirial products interoperate perfectly with our equipment and are fully compliant with the communication standards: the integration of their technology in our environment proceeds smoothly, and the new services' time to market is definitely shorter than we expected," comments Dan Tanel, Chief Technology Officer of BCS Global. "The recently released version of MCS supports all the advanced Mirial Softphone features, including HD video quality, 3-party video conferencing and desktop sharing capabilities, and we are now enabled to offer different services to specific user segments at a worldwide scale. Moreover, the PSE Video Contact Center application will let us provide enhanced support and commercial services to our partners and customers: we believe video will help strengthen our CRM resources and perceptibly increase our competitiveness."

Cristoforo Mione, Business Development Director for Mirial, stated: "As the partnership with BCS Global goes on, we find application cues and ideas for compelling usage scenarios everyday. That happens because video has a really huge potential, and our standards-compliant technologies allow to exploit it all. Also, we are glad to notice that nice "netiquette" behaviours - such as virtual handshakes and greetings - are getting more and more popular amongst the video conferencing users; we believe that it is a sign of their increased familiarity with visual communication technology and hope that our collaboration with BCS Global will help support this trend."
