It is with great joy that I am writing the words above, welcoming to the RADVISION family new members, coming from the delightful city of Ancona.

Yep, the word is out – we have acquired the intellectual property of Aethra, a video conferencing endpoint manufacturer and a long-time partner of RADVISION, as part of our end-to-end strategy.
I worked with engineers from Aethra throughout my years in RADVISION. As most of our industry, they were using our developer tools. I have always found the people there warm and friendly. Not that there’s any wonder here -after all, they are Italians…
But back to the acquisition —
We will now have a development center in Italy, one that will specialize in high-end High-Definition video conferencing room systems. This is going to be a great complement to our current array of video infrastructure and endpoints.
I’d venture to say that I see this as a great step forward, as now customers will be able to enjoy our end-to-end video conferencing solution – infrastructure, room systems, personal terminals and desktop clients. Not to mention our endpoint technology, that can be licensed to build your own communication products, which will work perfectly and seamlessly with all of these.
So – il benvenuto alla famiglia, RADVISION Italy!
