Main DigestVeterans Career Expo in New York connected with dozens of military bases for full featured video conferences using High Speed Video's ClearVision software based managed service.
High Speed Video (HSV), the leading provider of software based enterprise grade video communications and desktop tele-presence as an end-to end managed service, and Hire Disability Solutions (HDS), a certified disabled owned company promoting the inclusion of people with disabilities and Veterans into mainstream employment, announced today that as part of the HDS Global Veterans Career Expo being held in NYC on May 24, HSV's ClearVision Technology will be used to conduct hundreds of video conference interviews over the course of the event and the virtual expo that will continue for the following 2 weeks across dozens of military bases in the US and across the world.
"High Speed Video has given us the ability to fire up the best possible video communications virtually instantaneously, without the need to move equipment and infrastructure, across multiple locations, and at a scale that normally would have required weeks of preparations and logistics," said Jeff Klare, CEO of Hire Disability Solutions . "Particularly at a time when the economy is tight and we're dealing with heroes who for reasons of duty, physical conditions, or financial constraints cannot travel to the event, HSV provides an alternative almost as good as face to face interactions towards overcoming the time and distance limitations in job seekers meeting with hiring organizations."
HSV's ClearVision solution is the industry's leading solution for on-demand enterprise grade, fully secure, standards based video communications offered as a service. The platform is implemented entirely in software so that it can be implemented on off the shelf desktop grade PCs and Mac computers. At the same time where legacy standards based equipment already exists, ClearVision bridges between this and other software based endpoints through and entirely managed platform service. At the Global Veterans Career Expo, ClearVision will be used to connect the event location with military bases and other locations from where disabled veterans will be able to speak with hiring managers from more than 50 participating member companies.
"It is indeed gratifying to see a leading technology provider like High Speed Video support the rehabilitation of the brave men and women of our armed forces," said Colonel Curley, a disabled Veteran and former aide-de-camp to General Normal Schwarzkopf, and currently The Chairman of New York States for VETS. "It is an indication of how far some technologies have come towards making what was once a major technical operation to now be something that is agile, flexible, almost 'portable' through HSV's cutting edge architecture and services platform."
The 2011 Veterans Career Expo is being held in partnership with The New York Times, Veterans Across America, RecruitMilitary and the New York City Business Leadership Network (NYCBLN). This historic Veterans' Career Expo will also run virtually online simultaneously and for 2 weeks thereafter spanning military bases around the globe. The Expo will also be making available numerous workshops.
Dozens of virtual meetings and interviews using HSV's desktop Tele-presence solution will take place simultaneously across multiple locations. For the Expo and continued virtual hiring career fair, HSV will deploy 5 desktop based terminals at the Expo that can simultaneously be connected with the other locations throughout the world at military bases with fully secure, high definition two way video conferencing. The parties can be engaged in 1-1 conversations or multi-point video conferencing sessions. The various locations require no advanced equipment other than a desktop or lap top computer with a web cam. At locations where advanced Telepresence rooms or third party video conferencing equipment is already installed, HSV will integrate without requiring any special equipment to be mobilized.
"It is an honor for HSV to support HDS work the Veterans of this country. This is the first time that such scale video conferencing has been deployed in such a dynamic fashion towards doing something that has traditionally required a lot of in person face to face interaction," said Michael Maresca, CEO of High Speed Video. "The fact that HSV can be deployed without any infrastructure, or operational and technical logistics makes it uniquely suited for such an event."
HSV's ClearVision serves the needs of enterprises, major league sports teams, hospitals and medical institutions, financial services institutions and banks, and other government and educational markets in providing highly secure, reliable, on-demand, enterprise grade high definition desktop Telepresence and video conferencing solutions that uniquely allow on demand, fully featured video communications without any infrastructure or IT costs by customers.
