Glowpoint, StarLeaf join forces to deliver global Telepresence-as-a-Service

Telecom Lead America: Cloud managed video services provider
Glowpoint has partnered with StarLeaf, a manufacturer of interoperable video
and voice solutions, to deliver turn-key cloud video services for desktops and
rooms for as little as $99 per month.

“With StarLeaf, we are delivering high-quality
telepresence that is easy to buy, deploy and use.  When customers receive
their StarLeaf system with Glowpoint’s cloud subscription they will be live
within 5 minutes,” said Stephen Vobbe, senior vice president of Sales and
Marketing for Glowpoint.


Under the partnership, both companies will be making
‘high quality/low cost’ telepresence easily accessible and fully supported
anywhere in the world.


The association will combine StarLeaf’s portfolio of easy
to deploy endpoints with Glowpoint’s unrivaled reliability. StarLeaf’s purpose
built video infrastructure will be integrated into Glowpoint’s OpenVideo cloud


“In our society, video is becoming a business
imperative, yet all too often video equipment comes with walls that constrain
use and simply make it difficult for businesses to realize a return. Our
relationship with Glowpoint tears down the barriers to make video collaboration
accessible for all and will go a long way towards making video deployment more
pervasive,” said Mark Loney, StarLeaf CEO.


The partnership will enable customers to purchase the
StarLeaf desktop and room systems through Glowpoint bundled with the cloud
service, with the option of an All-Inclusive Service Price (AISP) that includes
the cost of the system as part of a monthly payment.


The new services will provide joint customers with
complete access to the OpenVideo community for secure, seamless B2B calling
