ELLETTSVILLE, Ind. (March 1, 2011) – Smithville’s new Video Conference Center is a state-of-the-art addition to the line of services available from Smithville Communications, Inc. A solution of epic proportions (a 16 ft. 3 in. by 5 ft. 5 in. screen), this center was created for local businesses, with the vision of local business owner, Ms. Darby A. McCarty. As President and CEO of Smithville, Ms. McCarty understands the rigors of managing a local business: smaller, rural businesses often work with out-of-state suppliers or distributors but lack the budget required to make it to long distance meetings. Ms. McCarty put it this way: “Meetings are essential to business, but the cost of travel is more than most local companies can bear. This [center] gives local professionals a means to conduct their business affordably and securely and an expert staff to assist with the technology.” Smithville’s new Video Conference Center is a great solution for budgets and time schedules as well as being a ready-to-use resource for area businesses.
Companies in need of a video conference solution can easily get tied down to a webcam type service, which can include a grainy/choppy picture on a slow connection. These services barely meet the need they were created to fill. Smithville has gone the extra mile to bring top-of-the-line video conference services to rural, southern Indiana. Smithville’s new Video Conference Center was created with rural communities in mind, allowing those that might be unable to invest in a video conference solution of their own the opportunity to use the equipment they need at an hourly rate.
Smithville’s new Video Conference Center boasts a full wall, rear projection screen – one of only five of its kind in the state of Indiana – providing high-definition video communications. The Video Con- ference Center offers six individual inputs, multipoint and ISDN connections and optional recording and live streaming services included at no additional cost. These connections allow users of the Smithville Video Conference Center to connect to anywhere in the world using modern technology, all from the comfort of their friendly, local communications company – Smithville.
