Webcast Video collaboration has seen plenty of false dawns. Companies have all bought videoconferencing systems for the board that didn't get used, struggled to find a use for the video cameras on our laptops and waited for the promise of video phones to be delivered.

But do the technologies, the standards and the networks we have today change the picture? Many big companies using video in the workplace already think so.
