Posted on December 17, 2012
The Nycomm Group has announced the acquisition of video conferencing specialist and audio visual integrator, Videonations in an undisclosed deal.
In a move that confirms Chairman Julian Niman’s belief in the importance of audio and visual integration, it rapidly advances the company’s capability in providing unified communications to the Nimans network of resellers.
“We have been looking for some time for the right partner to help accelerate our future growth,” commented Julian. “Our market research predicts significant acceleration in video conferencing in the SMB market. In partnership with our resellers we are particularly effective in that space. It is our intention to capture the same share of the video market that we’ve had in the communication solutions market for the last 30 years”.
Established in 2001, Videonations is a specialist video conferencing, audio visual and VaaS (Video as a Service) integrator, with offices inLondonand Altrincham. Boasting superb demonstration facilities, it is completely vendor-agnostic and supplies and supports global video conferencing manufacturers including LifeSize, Polycom, Radvision and Tandberg / Cisco.
Videonations delivers a broad spectrum of high definition video conferencing equipment; from desktop systems for one-to-one communication, room video conferencing and telepresence for group collaboration, to infrastructure solutions for multipoint video conferencing.
Julian added: “We see video forming an increasingly important part of the communications landscape and felt the need to acquire a high calibre technology partner to support our resellers in the design, installation, maintenance and support of such technologies. Videonations is a perfect partner.”
The Nycomm Group, which has recently been awarded ‘Investors in People’ status, already employs over 250 people across locations inManchesterandLeeds. The acquisition of Videonations reinforces its reputation as the country’s leading comms supply specialist. Julian says he is delighted to welcome Ian Carter and his team at Videonations to the Nycomm family.
