FREMONT, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AVer Information Inc., award-winning innovator of video conferencing technology, announces it has partnered with Zoom Video Communications, Inc. and VideoConferenceGear.com (VCG) to turn two rooms into Zoom Rooms. AVer’s contribution will benefit Brent’s Place, a long-term home away from home for families and children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses while they receive treatment at local hospitals.
AVer donated the cameras, Zoom donated the software licenses and VCG donated the remaining hardware components for the new Zoom Rooms. “AVer is always looking for ways to give back to our community – it is a fundamental part of who we are as a company,” said Charles Montoya, Senior Director of National Sales and Marketing. “We hope to enrich the lives of patients and their families during their stay by providing them with the best possible video conferencing experience.”
With the new equipment and Zoom Rooms, the patients and their families will be able to video conference their loved ones and work associates, stay up-to-date on school assignments, access the internet, and participate in meetings that would otherwise not have been possible. “The Zoom Rooms at Brent’s Place will help families connect with their loved ones during this stressful time in their lives,” said Ryan Pinke, CEO and founder of VideoConferenceGear.com.
Brent's Place in Aurora, Colorado is the only facility of its kind nationwide that specializes in Safe-Clean housing uniquely designed and maintained to minimize the risk of infection for severely immune compromised patients. In 2017, Brent's Place helped 179 families in need of Brent’s Place Safe-Clean environmental standards.
“Families come to Brent’s Place during one of the most difficult times of their lives as they travel far away from home to seek lifesaving treatments for their loved one. We strive to ease these difficulties as much as possible by making Brent’s Place a true home away from home for the entire family rather than just a place to live,” said Cassie Davis, Program Coordinator for Brent’s Place. “We are so excited that thanks to the incredible generosity of AVer, Zoom and VCG, families at Brent’s Place will have the opportunity to connect face to face with the friends and family members who aren’t able to be with them.”
“Zoom is happy to help families at Brent's Place to communicate with loved ones and work remotely while they are away from home. We hope that these resources allow for more personal connections within the Brent's Place community and for more efficient collaboration in their everyday operations,” said Steve Snyder, Sales Leader for Zoom Video Communications.
