Video conferencing

Any business where direct, clear, person-to-person communication over long distances is necessary and whatever their business, people who use VU understand the business value of face-to-face communication.

We all know that a picture is worth a thousand words, and crystal clear HD videoconferencing is the perfect example of how true that statement is. A live video conference is much more effective than a phone call in many different situations. For example, you may need to visually demo a new product with your international sales team or troubleshoot an issue with a client which requires data sharing. Literally seeing what you are discussing is far more effective and meaningful than trying to describe it verbally with an audio conference.

Computers, servers and networks

We provide design, configuration and connection of office networks (LAN), office to office networks (WAN) and wireless networks (Microsoft windows or Apple’s Mac). We will design a new network, reconfigure an existing network or just monitor and administer your existing network according to your specific needs. We work with your existing hardware when possible to reduce the cost to you. We can easily integrate Mac OS X and other apple devices like the iphone and ipad into your existing windows network. Every clients needs are different, we can advise what would be a best fit for your budget, company size or demands at no additional cost.

Once your network is up and running you want to make sure it is safe from hackers, viruses, spyware and trojan horses. Your goal is to keep anyone out that doesn’t belong on your network and to make sure users are only accessing what they need to perform their job. Most security vulnerabilities arise from within and from inexperienced users, make sure you have a network that is less vulnerable to these situations. We can establish a security policy that fits the needs of your business or home by implementing safeguards through software, hardware or a combination of both. Your data is your business; don’t sacrifice it over a few dollars.

In networking terminology, wireless is the term used to describe any computer network where there is no physically wired connection between sender and receiver, but rather the network is connected by radio waves and/or microwaves to maintain communications. Wireless networking utilizes specific equipment such as wireless network cards, Access Points and routers in place of wires for connectivity. Wireless networks are a great solution where wiring is not possible, not convenient or not visually appealing. Your network can be completely or partially wireless (ex. Laptops, back room workstation etc..).

Wireless hotspots are areas covered by a wireless internet connection for multiple mobile users to connect to in places like a restaurant, cafe, bookstore, marina, hotel, hospitals and universities. Today’s retail and private establishments are providing wireless hotspots to their customers for convenience and to gain a competitive advantage.  Some businesses provide this as a free service while others supplement their income with a pay service, whatever your need we have the right solution for you. All wireless devices are not the same and there are several obstacles to achieving good signals in your entire coverage area. Featured Media can design and implement a complete wireless hotspot which will be reliable, proactively managed for loss of wireless signal and provide strong connection for all your users.

Wireless technology is an evolving technology that is constantly improving and concerns for security, speed and cost are rapidly disappearing. We can help you decide if a wireless network or wireless hotspot is right for you.

We can assist you in implementing an array of data back-up options, from simple daily back-ups on USB Drives to hourly back-ups on NAS, SAN or any other type of disk storage. Our recommended choice is the remote backup service (RBS) which provides you with an online backup solution to safely backup and restore data from your servers, laptops or workstations. There are several options to back-up your data but you should always have a back-up plan in place.

Should your computer crash or suffer some unforeseen event we can recover your data from your existing back-up or your hard-drive and restore your operations. We offer Emergency Recovery Service.

In today’ business climate working from the office can sometimes be a hindrance. Remote access is a way of having full access to your office data and programs while being on the road, home or at a clients site. All that is needed is an internet connection and you can work from anywhere just as if you were sitting at your desk. Featured Media can configure your PC or network for remote access and establish the appropriate security policy to keep unauthorized users out.

Let’s be clear, ( computers are like humans: they can be sick! )computers fail all the time! Sometimes it’s just a matter of time and sometimes it’s poor maintenance. Featured Media can repair your damaged computer quickly and keep them running smoothly with scheduled maintenance. We can get your unit up in no time so your users can continue to work and do it with limited interruption.

VIRTUALIZATION

Virtualization is a method of running multiple independent virtual operating systems on a single physical server.  It is a way of maximizing physical resources to maximize the investment in hardware.  One physical server can appear as several running different Operating Systems (Windows Server, LAMP Server, Web Server, PBX Server, Network Management Server etc.) and Software for your users. This slashes the majority of hardware acquisition and maintenance costs that can result in significant savings for any company or organization. Virtualization is not just limited to servers; you can virtualize your entire infrastructure including workstations and data storage systems.

We can assist you in leveraging your existing Hardware and reducing operational and IT costs.
