The ability for businesses to have face-to-face meetings using video conferencing has rapidly reduced the need for business travel and has greatly improved company performance for many businesses across the world. But until now, high quality video conferencing has often been confined to large enterprises and even these have often spent much more than necessary, usually only getting average performing conferencing between static dedicated video conferencing and telepresence suites.
With businesses keen to make cost savings wherever possible and the increased pressure to act upon key environmental issues, it is more important than ever to deploy cost effective and efficient solutions into the workplace.
In the video conferencing world, there has always been issues with interoperability. It is often the case that one video conferencing vendors equipment will not interoperate with another vendor, and with an increase in mobile devices, users with webcams and desktop conferencing software, and a continually changing technology market, businesses must have the ability to interoperate all technologies seamlessly. This idea is often labelled as unifying or unified communications.
Interoperability is possible in the cloud where it was not possible before. This means you should be able to practically use and bring in any endpoint or device into your meeting.
So even if you have a Cisco Telepresence Suite, some Legacy Tandberg video conferencing and HD LifeSize room systems, Polycom M100 desktop software, an audio conferencing system and a home user using Skype, they can all participate in the meeting that is easy to join and manage, and provides the best audio and video quality possible.
Simply, cloud based video conferencing gives businesses and organisations the benefits of video conferencing but without having to invest in expensive network infrastructure usually required to deploy video communications throughout an organisation.
Cloud based video conferencing also allows anyone to access from anywhere. Room video conferencing, large telepresence suites, personal telepresence, video phones, desktop PC software, ISDN and legacy systems and even mobile devices - everyone can access the Video Cloud and interoperate, increasing the use of previous investments in the workplace, involving remote workers, improving collaboration and greatly increasing ROI.
