Videoconferencing service provider, Vidtel, announces the release of Vidtel Gateway, an add-on service that enables users to use Skype and GoogleTalk with video conferencing multipoint control units (MCUs) and bridges.  This new service allows for users to engage in a video conferencing session from their desktops and laptops; even their smart phones or tablets.

Vidtel Gateway works with existing infrastructures, allowing users to access Skype and GoogleTalk without interfering with their current MCU or bridge installations.

“Instead of forcing enterprises and service providers to scrap their MCUs and bridges, Vidtel Gateway maximizes those investments and expands video conferencing both throughout their organization and to third parties such as customers and business partners,” says Scott Wharton, CEO of Vidtel in a prepared statement   .

Vidtel Gateway also supports H.323 and SIP, with out the additional purchase of any hardware or a reconfiguring of existing MCUs or bridges.

Vidtel is showcasing their new service at InfoComm 2012 in Las Vegas.
