Citrix Intros VideoFrame, First Union Bank Pilots It

Citrix Systems Wednesday introduced VideoFrame 1.0, a streaming video and audio server product designed to be tightly integrated with server-based computing applications.

VideoFrame allows mission-critical video and audio applications to be quickly deployed within a corporation, and can support branch office growth and global expansion.

Companies can use VideoFrame to disseminate information such as sales presentations, on-demand training, education, company messaging, and seminars. Employees can access the video applications immediately on demand. Administrators can centrally manage multiple VideoFrame servers, media streams and published content across the enterprise - all from a single point.

"As Citrix aggressively expands its product portfolio, video and audio applications will play a growing role in our server-based business strategy," said Mark Templeton, president and chief executive officer of Citrix.

First Union, the nation's sixth largest bank holding company and eighth largest brokerage, is currently piloting a VideoFrame implementation that ultimately will enable employees to work from home instead of commuting to offices.
