Services such as Skype, Google Video and YouTube grew popular by allowing consumers to make calls, establish libraries, post videos and showcase their creativity. Business is now moving ahead strongly with video communication.
The enterprise video difference
Enterprise video tools operate on industry standard protocols that can readily connect with meeting room systems, executive desktops, and immersive telepresence suites. And now there are software applications enabling video communication from desktop PCs and mobile devices as well. So you can:
- Connect video across any private or public IP network.
- Join people in diverse locations, in other companies, and using different types of devices into the same conference.
Enterprise video integrates with your business tools
To make your video communications easy and secure business video tools integrate with:
- existing directory systems for security
- calendaring for scheduling
- automated room booking systems
- audio visual components such as smart boards
- video streaming and archiving tools for corporate playback
Skilled technical support can really make a difference.
- Quick response to resolve problems
- Help desk for using video facilities - increasing user adoption
- Pro-active monitoring of video infrastructure
In three to five years from 2012, it is expected that business will rely on a range of applications run over their corporate network including web based video and collaboration apps for mobile devices.

ENTERPRISE VIDEO COLLABORATION
What if everyone in the office had video? What if your customers and suppliers were available face-to-face on a moment's notice? What if it was just a click to conduct a high definition video conference and it worked as easily as making a phone call?
The highlight of modern enterprise video is the ability to pull together a remote team of experts from across the campus, country or even the region to work collaboratively and face to face on a business challenge without travel or even leaving their desks.
What's changed? Three significant developments in the enterprise video landscape
The shift to the desktop - video has moved out of the meeting room. Industry leading vendors now offer mature, easy to use, and secure software based video apps for high definition video conferencing at your desk, home office, and even a tablet.
Virtual meeting rooms - scheduling meetings in often oversubscribed video equipped meeting rooms can be readily replaced with ad-hoc, click to call video conferencing in the cloud, that works with desktop video software, in traditional video meeting rooms or on executive desktop systems.
Integration with office systems - there is now user-friendly integration with enterprise telephony, corporate security, directory services, calendaring and unified messaging services such as Microsoft Lync.
End-to-end video services
Early adopters of enterprise video found that procurement of equipment and software alone is not sufficient.
