Users of collaborative communications technologies are seeking ways to communicate with anyone, anywhere, and on any device. Video needs to be as easy to do as making a telephone call. Are more video systems with greater availability better than few systems with greater quality? Video anywhere has taken over from telepresence as the hottest trend. Is it really telepresence if it’s on an iPad? Does it matter? Join us for our annual half-day seminar where this year we will answer these and other questions and present the latest industry trends regarding audio, web, video & UC technologies Follow this session up with a visit to the IMCCA UC & Collaboration InfoComm pavilion where you can see all of the technology in action.

Organizations may find value in offering some communications capabilities in the cloud. Is visual collaboration one of the technologies suited to the cloud? Is it just a different way to position the managed services that are already being offered? This session will address the pros and cons of putting video in the cloud and explain what you need to know in order to do so effectively. The session will also look at the most recent offerings in this space.
