Publish date:

Glowpoint, Inc. (NYSE American: GLOW) ("Glowpoint" or the "Company"), a provider, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Oblong Industries, Inc., of award-winning innovative multi-stream collaboration technologies to drive the next generation of visual and data collaboration, announced that the Company is seeing significant pipeline growth as a result of its distribution partnership with Cisco.

Cisco and Oblong's combined offering includes Cisco's market leading Webex Room Series video conferencing systems and Oblong's Mezzanine™ content collaboration platform. Today Cisco with Mezzanine™ by Oblong has been deployed in over ten Cisco offices globally for demonstration purposes, fueling key customer wins in the financial services, healthcare, oil and gas and manufacturing industries. Cisco with Oblong's Mezzanine™ enables team collaboration with multi-user and multi-channel capability for companies and users who want more meaningful and effective communication across remote workforces.

Justin Ramirez, Head of Ecosystem Business Development for Cisco Webex, confirmed, "We're making it easier for our customers to understand it's not Cisco solutions OR Oblong solutions, it's Cisco PLUS Oblong to create the most productive and collaborative work environment."

Cisco with Mezzanine™ by Oblong transforms screens or displays into a readily adaptable canvas for multiple users and multiple content streams. Users entering the video conferencing environment are first introduced to Cisco's familiar view. As additional users connect, they are able to add up to ten streams of unique content, all controlled by Oblong's Red Dot award winning Mezzanine™ Wand.

Cisco video conferencing with Oblong's Mezzanine™ drives employee engagement and ensures secure information sharing with remote workforces. With an increasing amount of today's workforce working remotely, companies are challenged to find solutions that increase employee engagement and collaboration in meaningful ways while still maintaining ease-of-use and security.

"Cisco and Oblong have taken the robust immersive multi-stream communication historically reserved for just a few high-end visualization rooms and are making it a must-have collaboration solution for every conference room. As companies are looking to deploy more engaging experiences enterprise-wide, Oblong, in its ecosystem partnership with Webex, can deliver rich collaborative ways for global teams to be more productive," said Oblong CEO Pete Holst. "We've seen significant growth and inquiries from the Cisco channel in the last 60 days and anticipate both bookings and pipeline to accelerate throughout 2020."
