Video in the workplace

Watching you, watching me

On Demand Last week in our central London studio, The Register's Tim Phillips discussed the value of videoconferencing with some experts to see if it's a technology that has come of age at last.

We all know the many false dawns of videoconferencing and the unfulfilled promises of revolutionising our working practices. But of late, that picture has changed somewhat - partly helped by mass consumer adoption of Skype, the creeping adoption of VoiP on the desktop and the stabilistion of video standards.

Tim was joined by Dale Vile from Freeform Dynamics and Nick Sheppard from Cisco. They explore the benefits of videconferencing and how it can transform the way you work. They look at past technologies in this space, and the user experiences as a means to find out what's changed to put teleconferencing back on the agenda.

If you sniffing around this kind of implementation, these guys might be able to help steer your thinking. You can watch them here.
