Huntington Beach, CA, United States, 2011/03/10 - BrightCom CEO, Bob McCandless addresses unified network of telepresence, video, voice and data at the Telepresence Conference at the 2011 NAB Show in the Las Vegas Convention Center on April 12-13.
BrightCom, performance leader in integrated telepresence and video conferencing solutions announced today that CEO, Bob McCandless, will be speaking at the Telepresence Conference during the 2011 NAB Show on April 13th in the Las Vegas Convention Center. Mr. McCandless' session, entitled, “Using the Evolution of Voice as a Model for the Future of Telepresence and Video Conferencing” will explore how the evolution of voice communication, from its roots in PBX to the VOIP and cloud based computing applications can be utilized as a model for the future of telepresence and video conferencing technology.
Mr. McCandless states, “Today, Skype, Google Talk and iChat are a few of the applications that have taken VOIP and cloud computing applications to the masses. With over 500 million users talking over VOIP on Skype, phones and landlines are becoming obsolete. While telepresence and video are unifying voice with video and data, there are still setbacks including limited firmware based equipment and costly network bandwidths.”
“I believe it is important to look at the evolution of VOIP and cloud computing as a model for the future of telepresence as deeper levels of immersive environments become integrated into a unified network of VOIP, mobile phones, and cloud based video and data conferencing,” continued Mr. McCandless. “This will ultimately allow us to theorize regarding how this unified network will affect everyday communication in every facet of private and public life.”
Mr. McCandless will also be adding his voice as a panelist in a session entitled, “Interoperability, Quality, Security and Reliability in Telepresence.” In this session panelists will address how service providers can leverage an already-familiar solution to navigate the challenges involved in deploying hosted IP interactive video services.
“Telepresence is becoming an increasingly important visual communication and collaboration technology within the world of digital media and content creation”, stated Chris Brown, EVP, NAB Conventions & Business Operations “and we are very excited to have a thought leader in Bob McCandless involved in our program. Brightcom’s innovative approach and ideas around integrated telepresence are in sync with our show efforts around this emerging technology.”
