Joint Venture Results In Chorus Call Asia Launch

MONROEVILLE, Pa., March 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A close, year-long collaboration between Hitachi High-Technologies and Chorus Call has resulted in the launch of a new communications service provider for the Asia Pacific region.  The new company, Chorus Call Asia Kabushiki Kaisha, will launch April 1 in Tokyo, Japan, and will provide advanced hosted conferencing and collaboration solutions for the expanding economic region.  Chorus Call, the world leader in high quality conferencing services, is headquartered in Monroeville, PA and has operations and offices located around the globe to provide local and international customers with advanced and feature-rich audio and video collaboration tools.

This new endeavor is the end result of a productive joint partnership between Chorus Call, the Compunetix Video Systems Division (VSD) and Hitachi High-Technologies that was focused on developing a strong brand and services approach to the competitive Japanese communications market.  The effort, started over 12 months ago, has already converted significant corporate customers to the service which is built upon the CONTEX Summitâ„¢ and the EVERGREEN ® collaboration media processors. These facilities, together with the Chorus Call service model and the Hitachi High-Technologies sales reach, combine to provide a unique offering focused on high quality, high definition and high reliability.

"We are excited to make official the launch of our joint venture," states Mr. Tadao Kondo, President and CEO of the newly formed company. "The EVERGREEN video and the Summit audio platforms, along with the global Chorus Call follow-the-sun operations, allow us to offer an exceptional, high-quality service to our discriminating client base."

Dr. Giorgio Coraluppi, President and CEO of Chorus Call and Chairman of the Board of the new joint venture adds, "The strong Hitachi partnership and support, combined with the technologies of Compunetix and Chorus Call, should allow for continued aggressive penetration into the conferencing market in that growing region."

The new service will offer a wide range of collaboration and conferencing solutions, from fully hosted services to on-site managed services.  Chorus Call Asia Kabushiki Kaisha will offer on-demand audio, video and web conferencing, event management and advanced meeting services with a special emphasis on high-definition and scalable video collaboration.
