Appia Communications published a new white paper today that explores the benefits and challenges of video conferencing for small and midsize companies and organizations.
Sourced from an interview with Appia President Victor von Schlegell, the paper provides background on video communication, lists the traditional barriers to adoption, and discusses the next-generation solutions that are enabling organizations of all sizes to benefit from video communication.
“For a number of reasons, traditional video communication solutions have been impractical for many organizations, especially smaller ones,” von Schlegell said. “But with soaring travel costs and a challenging economic climate, the need has never been greater, and providers are starting to fill the void.”
