PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FL (October 6, 2009) ? RollCall Business Conferencing Solutions, a leading provider of teleconferencing services, today announced that it has completed the acquisition of rich media webcasting leader, VariView Technology, Inc. Terms were not disclosed.
RollCall, a division of Ponte Vedra Beach-based ILD Telecommunications, first announced its intent to acquire Dallas-based Vairview Technology on September 14. The combination of businesses forms a consolidated portfolio of services that spans teleconferencing, event and web conferencing tools, video content management and live and on-demand webcasting technologies.
“We are very excited about the prospects ahead as we blend the considerable talents and technology of RollCall and Variview,” said Fred Lloyd, Senior Vice President of ILD and head of RollCall Conferencing. “The addition of Variview’s streaming media and internet broadcast solutions complements our suite of teleconferencing and web conferencing services, and increases growth, which is in line with our strategy of business expansion.”
While RollCall already had an alliance in place with Variview, the company’s management team recognized that a combination would enhance its portfolio with services subscribed to by its existing customers, Lloyd noted.
Variview Technology was formed with the acquisition of Reflect Webcasting, which was formed from the assets of Yahoo! Broadcast and its webcasting unit. RollCall will own and operate the existing Variview platform while investing in new and innovative video-centric webcasting products currently used by dozens of large corporate customers, video production companies, investor relations and public relations firms, and interactive agencies to provide live and on-demand video webcasting and streaming services for internet viewers globally.
RollCall expands its offering to now provide full service webcasts for disseminating live or pre-recorded audio and video presentations, press releases and internal messages, facilitating shareholder communications, analyst meetings and product launches, delivering training and presenting customer testimonials.
