BrightCom™, an expert provider of integrated conferencing solutions, recently donated a video and web conferencing solution to the New Ways of Working Network. The solution was used to host their latest Tertulia roundtable discussion, connecting luminaries from around the country to discuss Eric Richert’s conclusions from his recent study on Distributed Work Group Practices.
The January Tertulia, hosted quarterly by New Ways of Working Network, focused on findings from Eric Richert, former Vice President, iWork Solutions Group, Sun Microsystems, Inc. and his recent study on Distributed Work Group Practices. Following his presentation was a high-level critique of the findings, which will ultimately result in revisions for the final paper. The paper will be released during the February symposium once again hosted by New Ways of Working Network and used as a platform for developing specifications for tools to support the work practices.
In addition to multi-way video meetings with BrightCom’s ClearView video and audio conferencing system, the BrightCom Visual Collaboration System (VCS) extended the main conference room to multiple participants using desktop PCs and mobile laptop clients from around the country to share presentation slides and full screen video. If needed, users could have shared video clip content, documents, live computer screens and a whole host of other data.
“Collaboration is a crucial element for both BrightCom and New Ways of Working Network. Our solutions increase the ability for collaboration between groups or individuals in a variety of locations, so it was a natural fit for us to support their efforts.”, said Robert McCandless, CEO of BrightCom, Inc. Jim Creighton, Co-Director of New Ways of Working added “We have used other conferencing solutions in the past and found BrightCom’s video and web conferencing solution to be superior in quality and functionality.”
