Kazakhstan’s National Carrier Kazakhtelecom Licenses SPIRIT DSP’s VideoMost.com Software to Provide Multipoint Videoconferencing Service to its Government and Corporate Customers
BARCELONA, Spain (Mobile World Congress ’12) – Feb. 28, 2012 – SPIRIT DSP, the world’s top voice and video over IP engines provider, announced today Kazakhstan’s major carrier Kazakhtelecom has licensed the company’s VideoMost.com software to provide multipoint videoconferencing service to its subscribers, under its own brand. Kazakhtelecom is one of the fastest growing telecommunications companies in Middle Asia, providing broadband internet service to its 3.9 million corporate and consumer subscribers.
Kazakhtelecom has been recognized for its innovative ability to introduce new technologies, as a result of a major infrastructure upgrade to its digital telecommunication network, and is widely acknowledged for its implementation of the largest state project – the construction of an information superhighway and the completion of a back-bone Next Generation Network, enabling the large-scale, nationwide introduction of new services and contributing largely to Kazakhstan’s accession to being among the most competitive telecommunications countries in the world.
“Kazakhtelecom recognizes the importance of driving new and highly demanded telecommunication services, such as videoconferencing, to their customers in a way that allows the telco to quickly generate new revenue, lower operating costs, reduce churn and increase customer satisfaction of their branded offerings,” said Alex Kravchenko, SPIRIT DSP’s VP Sales. “By licensing the VideoMost software, Kazakhtelecom has built their own videoconferencing service and rendered it to their subscribers based on a monthly subscription fee under its own brand and billing system to effectively compete against OTT VVoIP providers like Skype and Google. The first governmental client has already signed up for the service.”
VideoMost.com is an award-winning massively multipoint, web-based videoconferencing software product targeted for licensing to telecom carriers and service/SaaS providers as a white-labeled branded service. VideoMost.com is based on SPIRIT DSP’s video engine for Windows, Mac, Android and iOS clients and Windows or Linux-based video conferencing servers. The software embraces SPIRIT’s highly scalable H.264SVC video codec and HD voice IP-MRTM wideband voice codec (IETF RFC 6262), enabling HD voice and multi-party video calling. The multipoint video software works on connections from 512 Kbps, providing up to 30 fps HD 720p and supporting an unprecedented 1000 concurrent video channels per single $4,000 PC server. VideoMost.com uses standard internet access, microphone and speakers, and webcams. It allows participants to start a video conference instantly on their PCs and iPads, unlike hardware systems that require specially equipped meeting rooms. SPIRIT software automatically adapts video quality to bandwidth and processor power available and also includes desktop sharing, conference moderation, messaging, presence and more functions.
