Research: Desktop Videoconferencing: Ready for Its Close-Up

Jul 14, 2011


Desktop videoconferencing is becoming a more feasible option for organizations that want to improve collaboration among employees and business partners while also cutting travel costs. More than one-third of enterprises have desktop videoconferencing products deployed to their users today, according to our InformationWeek Analytics Desktop Videoconferencing Survey, and an additional 10% plan to roll them out in the next 12 months.

The advent of Scalable Video Coding (SVC), which enables the use of the Internet for high-quality desktop videoconferencing, means enterprises can deploy videoconferencing to a majority of workers. Companies that value face-to-face communications can make it happen without breaking the bank. (R2950611)
