Herzliya-based

VCON

(Nouveau Marche:022021) today announced a strategic alliance with LogIT Japan.

LogIT is a subsidiary of the

Teijin Seiki

technology conglomerate. Teijin Seiki is involved in a diverse range of fields, from machinery for textiles to aircraft equipment and oil hydraulic equipment.

LogIT and Teijin Seiki both seek alliances with Israeli hi-tech companies to improve sales and product development. Presently LogIT distributes products in Japan for

Nice Systems

(Nasdaq:NICE), a specialist in digital logging.

"We are especially excited to be joining VCON at this juncture. LogIT's vision of the Service Provider market in Japan will be complemented by VCON's innovative videoconferencing PBX, the Media Xchange Manager (MXM)," noted Mr. Amako, Business Development Manager at Teijin Seiki. "We plan to use the MXM in addition to VCON's endpoint solutions to tempt Japanese service providers."

"Japan has traditionally proven a significant market for VCON although it is only now, with the advent of broadband and impressive third-generation wireless technology that Japan is truly ready for Video over IP," said Dayana Poller, VCON's Director of Sales.
