Sept. 6, 2021 - Barco announced today that it has extended its alliance with longtime partner and Italian system integrator VideoGecom to provide advanced visualization and collaboration solutions for the local control room market. The partnership will strengthen Barco’s position in the region and give VideoGecom the opportunity to offer Barco’s advanced control room solutions to its domestic market.
VideoGecom, based in Roma and Milan, was founded in 2000. The company has since been developing unified communication and collaboration solutions and interactive multimedia installations for environments such as auditoriums, board rooms, training rooms, meeting rooms, huddle rooms, digital signage and control rooms. VideoGecom offers design, supply and technical assistance for projects across Italy thanks to a wide intervention network that is coordinated through its Milan and Rome offices.
The company has always been keen to adopt and implement Barco’s visualization and collaboration solutions, including ClickShare and weConnect, for corporate and education environments. Recently, VideoGecom has been strengthening its focus on the control room market and therefore it was eager to reinvigorate its partnership with Barco for that industry.
"There are many opportunities for Barco and VideoGecom to solve the challenges of the Italian control room market," says Fabrizio Ponzo, Business Development Control Room & Signage at VideoGecom. "Together, we can bring technology to help operators cope with the increasing amount of data sources they need to monitor. Control rooms are also becoming more and more interconnected, which means they need to be able to share data swiftly and securely across facilities and control room sites."
"VideoGecom has been a trusted Barco partner for many years and one of the first partners in Italy that is present in every Barco segment," says Thomas Parravicini, Territory Manager at Barco. "Thanks to VideoGecom’s reinforced commitment to the control room market, we are confident that Barco will be able to penetrate the market with its latest operator workspace and large-screen visualization solutions."
