AVI-SPL Acquires VideoLink to Expand Broadcast Solutions

Companies of all types that want to improve the communications throughout their worldwide offices have good news. That’s because AVI-SPL recently enhanced its ability to serve the growth in enterprise video with the acquisition of VideoLink, a video services provider. This joining of forces brings together VideoLink’s deep expertise in video production and content creation with AVI-SPL’s talents as a collaboration systems integrator and managed services provider. This means businesses have a single go-to resource for end-to-end video solutions.

For corporations and TV and broadcast facilities, VideoLink’s service offerings include:

  • ReadyCam (customized video production studio)
  • EnhancedIP (video transmission service)
  • Webcasts
  • Creative video strategy

Being able to help companies with creating their video content adds more value to our standing as a systems integrator of AV and collaboration solutions, and as a catalyst for the kind of workplace transformation that makes it easier to companies and employees to communicate internally and externally.

VideoLink’s resources page has dozens of videos about its products, customer testimonials, and tips for making quality company videos. I also recommend you read Commercial Integrator‘s coverage, and watch the interview with AVI-SPL CEO John Zettel and VideoLink CEO Richard Silton. You can also read AVI-SPL’s press release about this acquisition.

Choosing the Right Collaboration Tool

  • Results from collaboration research
  • What collaboration in the corporate setting looks like
