ABSTRACT
The article discusses the latest enhancements in room-based and desktop videoconferencing. The new desktop paradigm of video-as-a-feature bases its usage concept on instant messaging (IM) and presence, and its technical foundation on Internet protocol (IP) networking. IM is last becoming as common as email, with about 25 percent of casual IM users also using it at work, about double the workplace usage rate of a year ago. The ubiquity of IP in enterprise networks is a crucial foundation for the integration or convergence of video with voice and data into desktop workflow applications that will be easier to use and much more valuable to users. Enterprise videoconferencing is poised to grow dramatically over the next two to four years. Three factors are working together to make this happen: First of all, every major enterprise software and hardware vendor is incorporating video into its forthcoming unified communications offerings. Second, the videoconferencing industry itself continues to make dramatic improvements in price, performance and audio/video quality. And finally, video is the right productivity tool for enterprises that must do more with less.
