WWT delivers broadcast-quality video experience to enterprise customers with VBrick Rev®
ST. LOUIS – June 2, 2016 –World Wide Technology, Inc. (WWT), a market-leading systems integrator that provides innovative technology and supply chain solutions, today announced that it has entered into an authorized partnership agreement with enterprise video market leader VBrick Systems to deliver massively scalable streaming and video management capabilities to customers worldwide.
“As our video practice and Cisco business expands at a tremendous pace, and Cisco places more emphasis on collaboration, it’s essential that WWT partner with a company that can deliver a broadcast-quality video experience – and VBrick is undoubtedly that partner,” said Joe Berger, manager of WWT’s Collaboration Practice.
“We are pleased to form an alliance with VBrick, whose Rev solution provides video management, webcasting and recording in a secure cloud environment,” Berger continued. “Throughout a number of joint engagements with WWT accounts, Rev has proven to be very effective at driving customer acceptance, license revenue and large-scale services engagements. We look forward to VBrick accelerating our growing video and collaboration business.”
The VBrick Rev enterprise video platform rounds out WWT’s collaboration suite, with HD quality live webcasting, searchable Video On Demand (VOD) portal and built-in video distribution capabilities that enable WWT’s enterprise customer base to stream video across their own networks using the least possible bandwidth.
As an authorized partner, WWT can now offer the VBrick Rev enterprise video platform and Rev Distributed Media Engine (DME) products off the Cisco global price list, as well as offer VBrick’s suite of top-quality encoder products directly from VBrick, effective immediately.
“VBrick is excited to add WWT to its own growing list of allied partners and authorized resellers,” said Stefan Schober, Vice President of Business Development for VBrick. “WWT and VBrick share a commitment to responding to the needs of our customers and staying ahead of the market by delivering continuous enhancements to our enterprise video capabilities.”

Named the market leader in enterprise video webcasting by industry analysts Frost and Sullivan for the past two years, VBrick provides the Rev platform to enable organizations to reach audiences in the tens of thousands.
VBrick not only replaces Cisco’s Show and Share solution it also seamlessly integrates with the Cisco Collaboration portfolio – including Cisco TelePresence, Webex CMR, and Cisco Webex teams – to enable customers to get more out of their Cisco Collaboration investments.
“As Cisco’s number one Enterprise and Federal Collaboration Partner and a top Cisco video partner globally including a 2015 Americas video partner of the year award, WWT has proven itself to be at the forefront of video and collaboration technologies,” said Jedd Williams, Director World Wide Sales and GTM, Collaboration for Cisco. “We believe WWT’s new alliance with VBrick will only strengthen and extend our own established partnership as well as WWT’s ability to help customers eliminate communication barriers and quickly deploy advanced collaborative technologies worldwide.”
WWT’s VBrick engagement is facilitated by its Advanced Technology Center (ATC), where WWT’s Cisco and VBrick experts work together with customers to design and demonstrate solutions, and customers can explore how VBrick solutions fit into integrated video and collaboration solutions first-hand.
VBrick believes in the power of video to transform the workplace. Its Rev® cloud video platform removes the technology and pricing restraints that have held business back from tapping video’s clear advantage to persuade, inform and compel people, wherever they are.
