White House Selects VBrick

VBrick Systems Inc. of Wallingford, Conn., announced Feb. 27 that the White House selected its network video appliance and software to deliver live and stored video feeds to desktops in the White House.

The television streams are delivered over a secure network to the White House Situation Room, a 24-hour watch and alert center. The situation room provides the president, national security adviser and National Security Council staff with current intelligence and open-source information in support of the formulation and implementation of national security policy.

VBrick's Model 3200 network video appliance and its StreamPlayerII software were selected by the White House Systems and Technical Planning Office. The White House purchased 10 systems, which each cost $5,000, and plans to add more, said VBrick spokesman Rob Strayton.

"The selection of VBrick technology by the White House was based not only on the obvious need to distribute real-time, high-quality video for an important application, but also on cost, simplicity, reliability and the complete system proposition VBrick offers," said Rich Mavrogeanes, VBrick's president and founder.

About 22 percent of VBrick's business is with federal, state and local governments, Strayton said. Other government entities using the company's technology include the U.S. Air Force, Army, Navy, FBI and state colleges and universities.
