Avistar Communications Corporation was founded as a Nevada limited partnership in 1993. It creates technology that provides the missing critical element in unified communications: bringing people in organizations face-to-face, through enhanced communications for true collaboration anytime, anyplace. It operates through two segments: Product and Intellectual Property. Its products division engages in the design, development, manufacture, sale and marketing of networked video communications products. Its intellectual property division engages in the development, prosecution, maintenance, support and licensing of the intellectual property and technology used in its video communications system. The company's latest product, Avistar C3, draws on over a decade of market experience to deliver a single-click desktop videoconferencing and collaboration experience that moves business communications into a new era. Available as a stand-alone solution, or integrated with existing unified communications software from other vendors, Avistar C3 users gain an instant messaging-style ability to initiate video communications across and outside the enterprise. All systems require Avistar C3 Server software. It enables the seamless integration of video applications, audio support, collaboration services, comprehensive network and bandwidth management and administration. The Avistar C3 software supports a highly-distributed topology, and multiple instances might be deployed. The company's directories allow a user to place a video call by simply clicking on a name in the presence-based Avistar network directory. The company's system would route the call to the correct location over the local area network or the wide area as appropriate. The user does not need to know phone numbers or IP addresses. The user could also look up addresses in private and global address books, utilize browser style type-in boxes, and access speed-dial 'direct connect buttons'. The company's Shareboard application allows users to collaborate on graphics, data or text during a video call. By clicking on the 'share' button, users are linked to the Shareboard data sharing application. With its web-based call reporting system, its customers could track all calls logged by its servers. Reports show call details, device usage and calls by user, all viewable from any Web browser. It delivers a suite of video, audio and collaboration solutions which are designed to support users in the office, via the conference room or on-the-go. The company's visual unified communications solutions are based on its 10th major release of its open architecture, which enables users to communicate using various networking protocols and transport media, including IP networks and the Internet. The company currently sells its system directly and indirectly to the small and medium sized business, or SMB and globally distributed organizations, or Enterprise, markets comprising the Global 5000.
