and its new strategic partner DigitalFX signed an agreement for DigitalFX to integrate Fusion's advanced unified messaging and digital telephone service into DigitalFX's cutting edge web 2.0 offerings for enterprises and individuals that include video creation and streaming, digital storage and advanced convergence technology.
The announcement comes a week after Las Vegas-based DigitalFX made a $700,000 investment in New York-based Fusion, which has over one million digital phone subscribers in 100 countries. The investment was described as the first step of many synergistic relationships that signals major advances in both companies' converged multimedia solutions.
DigitalFX said it will offer Fusion's advanced services, including digital phone service, as part of its flagship product called "The Studio." The Studio gives individuals, enterprises and social networks worldwide the ability to create, upload and manage all their digital assets online, including live webcasts, streaming videos, email correspondence as well as video email, podcasts, music, pictures and more.
DigitalFX said Fusion's services will be available for sale to its existing 30,000 customers around the world, on its websites, and through its rapidly growing worldwide affiliates network. DigitalFX already has purchased more than three million minutes from Fusion.
