Videoconferencing’s Unfulfilled Promise
From its inception, the point of videoconferencing was to allow face-to-face communication with eye-to-eye contact, because people wanted more than to just hear others’ voices by phone in a conference situation. They wanted to see nonverbal cues for enhanced communication. After all, with enhanced communication comes better deliverability of one’s message, which can translate to greater sales and profitability.
The videoconferencing industry made a promise. They would create technologies to allow what the people demanded: Real Telepresence. Until DVE, this promise has gone unfulfilled. To learn more about DVE’s line of videoconferencing products that offer Real Telepresence, visit the Telepresence Buyer’s Guide.
While a few big conference manufacturers offered codecs with bundled solutions, and their customers bought in on the promise of “the next best thing to being there,” that wasn’t exactly what they got, due primarily to the cost of ISDN, image quality, fire walls, QoS, ease of use, cost of deployment, real return on investment, and other roadblocks.
DVE applauds the forerunners in their industry that brought videoconferencing to the mainstream, because they laid groundwork for DVE's pioneering efforts to finally fulfill the promise of Real Telepresence in their technologies. To learn more, download DVE’s white paper “What is Telepresence?”
DVE’s position as a leader in the videoconferencing industry was borne from their ability to combine the art and science of telepresence. Sought by leaders in other industries, such as healthcare, government, and entertainment, DVE’s products offer the Real Telepresence that people everywhere want, both in and outside the conference room
