Yorktel Adds State-of-the-Art Prysm Video Wall Solutions To Portfolio

Premier VideoCloud, Unified Communications and Collaboration Provider Offers Cutting-Edge, Interactive Visual Solutions Through New Partnership

Yorktel (@Yorktelcorp), the worldwide leader in unified communications and collaboration (UCC), cloud, and video managed services, today announced a partnership with Prysm to resell, integrate and manage its market-leading video walls.

Powered by Laser Phosphor Display (LPD) technology and enabled for a variety of video codecs, Prysm Cascade-series collaboration video walls deliver the highest quality images with unmatched uniformity, resulting in a truly immersive and engaging communications experience.

“Prysm video walls represent the next generation of large-format displays, and are a natural fit for Yorktel’s media services and immersive collaboration offerings,” said Yorktel President and CEO, Ron Gaboury. “Video wall solutions are now utilized in an increasing number of vertical markets. Their innovation, uniqueness and customization allows for various application-centric deployments, which we believe to be the future of unified communications and collaboration.

“We are very excited to work with the Prysm team and to offer our customers their state-of-the-art video walls.”

Typical conference rooms use front projectors that suffer from poor viewing angles,center image hot spots, and poor brightness, which requires dimming of the room lights. Other options include using multiple LCD displays which introduces bezels that break up the content, as well as problems with viewing angles, content sizing, and maintenance of brightness and color uniformity across displays. Both of these options present roadblocks to effective communication and collaboration.

LPD is the groundbreaking display technology invented by Prysm and the foundation of Prysm video wall solutions. Fundamentally different than LED- and LCD-based technologies, LPD-based video wall solutions offer brilliant image quality with canvas-wide uniformity, unmatched viewing angles, and the industry’s smallest environmental footprint. Compared to other digital technologies, Prysm’s solutions have the lowest total cost of ownership, using up to 75% less energy, and offer an array of advanced features, benefits and usage possibilities.

Prysm video walls offer a host of interactivity options from touch and gesture tointerfacing with a smartphone or tablet. Multiple people can interact with the video wall simultaneously opening up a world of possibilities beyond the confines of small displays.

“Yorktel is recognized worldwide as an authority and thought leader on video and unified communications,” said Dana Corey, Vice President of Sales and Technical Operations at Prysm. “We are extremely proud to have Yorktel as an Elite Partner and look forward to leveraging the full extent of their team’s telepresence, services and visual communications expertise to bring our groundbreaking video wall solutions to market.”
