Polycom has announced that Polycom RealPresence video solution are serving the village of Saint Denis de L’Hôtel (Loiret) in France and its sister town Burnham in England, to create an original twinning programme. The video solutions are used not only in the administrative management of the twinning agreement, but mainly for cultural, pedagogical and linguistic activities.
Since January 2012, the Polycom videoconferencing solutions provide the local populations with the capability to meet regularly visually and share special events, and everyone is taking advantage of the solutions.
Muriel Pepler, president of the BVTA (Burnham Village Twinning Association) confirms “Thanks to videoconferencing, we have successfully built a solid relationship between our two communities. The regular contacts not only deepen our knowledge of our differences, and our similarities, it increases the bond between us.”
Jean Francois Raffestin, President of the AJSDH (Association de Jumelage de Saint Denis d’Hôtel), and creator of the initiative says “We wanted a different type of twinning agreement, beyond what is done traditionally. We aspired for increased the interactions and make the twinning beneficial to everyone in the community. With the Polycom solutions the possibilities are endless, which keeps us creative!”
