Huntington Beach, CA, United States, 2011/02/24 - BrightCom CEO, Bob McCandless looks to the history of human communication and video technology to analyze current and future adaption and perception of video in the home and office in new video series.
BrightCom, the performance leader in integrated telepresence and video conferencing solutions announced today a new series of video interviews with CEO Bob McCandless discussing the past, present and future of telepresence and video conferencing. The videos can be viewed on the BrightCom Media page or the BrightComConference YouTube Channel.
“The goal of this new video series is to show how video is evolving as a tool for human communication and how humans will shape its future based on its history and the state of the current industry,” stated Mr. McCandless, who is a regular speaker on collaborative computing and technology assisted human interaction. “Many people today know that video has a lot of challenges, but if we look to the past and discuss how human communication and information technology has evolved together, then we can find models that can help us learn how video and telepresence will increase in the next 10-50 years.”
The first three discussions of the video series begin with a conversation about early human communication and perceptions of video technology. These videos will cover topics that include information technology's impact on human communication, how the entertainment industry's depiction of the future has affected the rise of video communication, the evolution of live broadcasting on radio and television, and early models of video conferencing and telepresence.
BrightCom will continue its video series with discussions regarding the current state of the industry, delving into issues including perceptions of video in today's business and consumer worlds, HD and 3D clarity in communication, obstacles for video communication adoption and vendor convergence in a wide range of conferencing applications. The final set of videos will look toward the future, speculating where video will be and how it will look in the near and far future. These discussions will include topics such as the rise of conferencing vendor specialization, the issue of privacy in private and public spaces, integration of online virtual games and the telepresence experience of the future.
“We are hoping that these interviews will spark a larger dialog within the industry to help further educate businesses and consumers regarding video technology and its value in both the home and the office,” stated Mr. McCandless.
Mr. McCandless is a valued contributor to industry publications and is a regular speaker at Colleges, Universities and Industry events including Enterprise 2.0, Telepresence World, InfoComm and TMC’s ITEXPO.
