  • Chicago, IL (1888PressRelease) February 02, 2012 - IOCOM, a leading provider of universal video conferencing solutions, today announces its partnership with the A la Carte Culinary Services (A la Carte), prominent Long Island cooking school. A la Carte, through the collaboration of IOCOM premier partner, International Collaboration, will use Visimeet, IOCOM's cloud-based communication software, to offer their classes to anyone who wishes to attend, regardless of their location.

    "My vision is to use Visimeet to teach America how to cook," explains Polly Talbott, CCP, Chef and Owner of A la Carte. "We've been teaching students how to cook at our recreational, hands-on cooking school in New York for over 12 years. Now, thanks to Visimeet, students don't have to be in our kitchen to partake in our classes, they can be in their homes around the world."

    A la Carte's kitchens will be equipped with cameras and microphones, allowing online students to have a hands on experience during classes. Viewers will be able to ask questions and give comments during the classes. In addition, every class will be recorded and saved, providing users the ability to come back and view at any time.

    "We're very excited to be partnered with A la Carte," says Tim Hackett, IOCOM CEO. "I can't think of a better way for America's top chefs to share their skills with a potentially infinite audience of connoisseurs."

    Visimeet keeps students and instructors connected to their classrooms through video, audio, and data conferencing. Visimeet works with many internet-enabled products, including room systems, desktop PCs, notebooks, and mobile devices. IOCOM focuses on delivering high performance solutions that provide superior quality audio and video without the cost and complexity of proprietary systems.
