LiNKS Selects Nefsis for Video Remote Interpreting Platform


Nefsis cloud-based video conferencing makes VRI affordable
and easy-to-implement for business

SAN DIEGO — July 7, 2011 — Online services innovator Nefsis® announced today that LiNKS Sign Language and Interpreting Services selected Nefsis cloud-based video conferencing as the delivery platform for LiNKS Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) services. VRI uses videoconferencing technology, equipment, and an Internet connection to provide foreign language interpreting, and sign language interpreting services for deaf, hard-of-hearing or speech-impaired individuals, through an off-site interpreter when an on-site interpreting service is not practical or immediately available.

A Nefsis partner, LiNKS Sign Language & Interpreting Services, is offering interpretive services through HD video conferencing via a cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) delivery that can be implemented on an as-needed basis, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year requiring no special equipment.

Prior to cloud computing, high-quality, multipoint video conferencing in business and court settings necessitated a heavy investment in infrastructure equipment including video routers, multichannel units, and gateway servers. The Nefsis video conferencing cloud offers HD quality, security, and affordability for organizations to implement Video Remote Interpreting at their facilities with expanded reach to virtually any Internet-equipped location.

“VRI services can be used in a number of situations including corporate, medical, educational, governmental, entertainment, conventions, and religious organizations; whether in recreational settings or complex work environments. Effective VRI communication can now be accomplished anywhere there is access to a PC, webcam, and an internet connection,” stated Chuck Scarpaci, Director of LiNKS.

“The Nefsis cloud does all the heavy-lifting, including securing the video conference with encryption for policy or regulatory compliance. By using LiNKS and its Video Remote Interpreting services, our clients can be sure that they are in complete compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and all related situations where an interpreter is required by law.”

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) adopted new accessible design standards, which became effective on March 15, 2011. The new Title III rule involved standards for accessible designs that are consistent with the ADA/ABA Accessibility Guidelines. VRI service was one of the nine design standards. Compliance for standards for new construction and alterations and barrier removal take effect on March 15, 2012.
