    iPoint-media, a video calling specialist and provider of interactive video application delivery platforms for web, 3G mobile and media, has announced the signing of a reseller agreement with Consort NT S.A., a French systems integrator. Consort NT will resell and integrate iPoint-media's Vitrage 3G video calling application platform in France with a focus on French mobile operators and value added service providers.

The platform's development environment speeds up time to market of new mobile video services and reduces operational expenses.

We believe there will be significant interest in the Vitrage solution and hope to generate significant revenues as a result."

    Joseph Daniel, iPoint-media VP Sales & Marketing, commented: "We've seen a growing number of system integrators interested in offering our Vitrage 3G video calling application platform to telecom operators. With the rapidly increasing number of 3G mobile phones in France, we believe this market offers good potential for video calling services. We look forward to working closely with Consort NT as we believe that it is well positioned to finalise transactions with French operators and to deliver our leading 3G video calling solutions in France."
