News AVSolution rebrands

as avsnet avsnet, formally AVSolution UK Ltd., has unveiled its new branding, website and company name. This change ensures the company’s image better reflects the broad range of business solutions the organisation provides. avsnet’s new brand maintains its strong heritage (avs) while correctly indicating its focus on collaborative unified communications (net).

Alongside its traditional video conferencing installation and support expertise, avsnet has strong experience in application performance management which allows it to deliver quality network centric video experiences to global businesses.

In addition to the rebrand and the service management overhaul, the company has forecast extremely aggressive growth plans and is looking to support this by supplementing its commercial, support, network and technical services team. Already the management team has been further bolstered, not only by industry veteran Mike Mason, but with the arrival of Justin Anderson who joins avsnet as Commercial Director. Mason and Anderson have previously held posts as CEO and MD at Cisco UC specialist ABS, where they doubled revenues to £25million. News in rief

Jangro Belfast refurbishes Olympic Torch

When Olympic Torch carrier Andrew Miller received his Torch to carry across Belfast he thought it looked a bit worse for its travels, so he made a slight detour and called in Jangro Member Interclean for advice.

Surprised Interclean Director Railton Snape was quick to produce the best cleaning tool for the task – a Jangro microfibre cloth. In two minutes he was rubbing away as if it was the Genie’s lamp – although the Genie did not appear, Railton’s wish came true and the runner allowed him to have his photo taken with the torch before continuing its journey.

Railton said: “It was a chance of a lifetime to hold the torch that Dame Mary Peters had carried and a fantastic complement to be asked for professional cleaning advice for this beautiful gold torch.”

Professor Brian Cox at The

Energy Event Acclaimed particle physicist and television presenter, Professor Brian Cox, will be one of the major draws to The Energy Event, September 11th - 12th at the NEC, Birmingham. Brian’s presentation will tackle the prevailing ideas and science surrounding the energy debate, drawn in part from his experience of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. He will also compare modern energy efficiency with older best-practice producers such as flowers and plants, and take visitors all the way back to the start of energy as we know it; The Big Bang.

Brian will also be taking questions from the floor after his appearance to discuss: the origins of the energy we use; how carbon itself came into being; and how we might harness the energy of the stars. Dan Thurlow, Event Director of The Energy Event, said: “Professor Cox will take his audience from molecular detail to astro-physical proportions at

the speed of light in a way that perhaps only he can. And, while prevailing wisdom suggests UK national, international, local, business and economic energy and carbon strategists must be encouraged to think big and think long term, there’ll be those that would argue for his infectious brand of energy to be a part of the ‘energy mix.”.

Other big names at The Energy Event include: former New Labour Head of Strategy, Alistair Campbell; ITV News Special Correspondent, Daisy McAndrew; and James Woudhuysen, Professor of Forecasting and Innovation at De Montfort University. 11
