Leading UK solutions integrator for Video Communications, VideoCentric, has upgraded its Thames Valley demonstration suite to showcase 4K Video Conferencing, Microsoft Teams & Zoom integration and 4K Wireless content collaboration in what has been dubbed the most comprehensive video collaboration demo suite in the UK.

Featuring the latest video conferencing and communications technologies from the likes of Poly, Lifesize, Zoom, Yealink, Cisco, BlueJeans, Pexip and Logitech, VideoCentric shows how solutions are integrated with Skype for Business, Microsoft Teams, Cisco Webex Teams and Google G-Suite via certified gateways and interoperable VMRs.

The new facility also demonstrates VC integration with 8×8 Cloud Telephony and VoIP PABX solutions removing clutter from the meeting room table. Additionally, calendar invitation of people, VC systems with one-touch dialing and meeting room reservation is achieved through integration of Evoko Room Booking solutions, also on display.

Huddle and Meeting Room technologies on show are Zoom Rooms certified and include the leading USB Soundbar and webcam technologies from Logitech, Aver, Poly, Huddly, HP and Nureva. Side-by-side comparison under the same lighting and sound conditions means that customers can properly assess the collaboration technology before committing to it.


VideoCentric’s new 4K facility allows customers to experience stunning 4K video conferencing and 4K content sharing across the world. Not just 4K cameras, but 4K processing, 4K cloud transmission, 4K decoding and 4K displays for a true end-to-end experience. This game-changer can be experienced in one single location, and knowledgeable staff are on hand to discuss the benefits for integrating 4K content from a variety of peripheral devices. Recognising that 4K content is perhaps most applicable to architects, healthcare professionals, textile & PCB designers, insurance assessors and the higher education sector, VideoCentric has relationships in place to bring in bespoke 4K devices ahead of any demonstration at the request of a customer, to ensure that the full solution is demonstrated live, as opposed to merely theoretical discussion, so that the feasibility of the full solution can be fully understood.

“Our demonstration facilities have always been designed for live comparisons in an unbiased and independent way” commented Emily Shimell, Head of Marketing & Communications at VideoCentric Ltd. “ With the first full 4K Video Conferencing solution launched in November by Lifesize, Poly recently announcing the new G7500 4K system at Infocomm 2019, 4K cameras from Cisco and Aver, the new demonstration suite is yet again the first of its kind in the world. We are able to demonstrate the pitfalls as well as the pros in a way that will be avoided if simply viewing a solution at one of our manufacturers’ sites. Not only is this important at the front end of the sales process, but is vital for professional technical support, integration with emerging clouds and keeping on top of OS platform and browser changes in an ever-changing collaborative world”.


Frost and Sullivan estimate there are more than 50 million huddle rooms worldwide, and by 2020, two-thirds of all video conferencing equipment will be used in these small spaces.

With the mass rollout of Zoom Video Communications and Microsoft Teams in businesses around the world, VideoCentric’s new demonstration suite enables potential customers to compare huddle room technologies side-by-side, especially those certified by Zoom and Microsoft. USB video & audio peripherals such as the Logitech Meet Up, Aver VB342, Poly Studio, Logitech Rally/TAP bundle, Huddly Go & IQ and Nureva HDL300 feeding into HP, Intel & Apple Mini-PCs, NUCs and Macs are integrated for use within Microsoft Teams and Zoom environments with all of the three certified Teams gateways from Pexip, BlueJeans and Poly RealConnect, alongside alternative solutions that are integrated with the Microsoft Teams workflow via plugins and bots.

Apart from live demonstrations at its own HQ in Wokingham near Reading in Berkshire, VideoCentric has numerous 4K and 1080P systems ready boxed-up and ready to demonstrate at a customer’s own premises alongside any of the leading cloud platforms too. In addition, it has facilities in the heart of Central London and Central Edinburgh too.
