It’s frustrating when you’re trying to coordinate a video conference call and it simply does not work.
The typical (annoying) scenario you find yourself in is that you have multiple parties calling in from different locations and they are all using different technology.
Interoperability is a claim that a lot of devices and platforms make but, getting different systems to talk with one another so that you can talk with your colleagues isn’t always as easy as we’re led to believe.

Very soon the Microsoft Lync Optimized Polycom CX5100 Unified Conference Station will be available at VoIP Supply.
We’re expecting to see these by the end of September 2013.
Unveiled at the 2013 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, the CX5100 is for Microsoft Lync users collaborating with remote teams.
What they’ll get is a unique 360 degree, panoramic video experience that also displays a seamless dual window layout.
The CX5100 was originally called the “Roundtable” because the device is placed in the center of a meeting room table and uses a handful of cameras that stitch together a panoramic view that is displayed in one window while another window displays a zoomed in image of the person who is currently talking.
Polycom uses what they call …
What is new technology and new mediums of communication but simply, new ways to access email?
Microsoft has announced the addition of Skype to Outlook. So even as the business world enters a “pervasive video era“, its heavy reliance on email isn’t going to change.
If you’re an Outlook customer in one of these six countries (Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, UK, US) you can now enjoy Skype integration which will give you a similar user experience to Gmail which offers users quick access to voice, video, email, and chat on one platform/screen.

Video messaging from Skype has graduated from the testing phase to a full-fledged feature for:
- Windows and Windows 8
- Mac, iPhone, iPad
Skype video messaging is completely free and will help busy people everywhere “catch up whenever, wherever.” It can also help you avoid the tedious step of logging in to listen to voicemails on your phone.
It’s Why We Use Video
We use video conferencing because it’s easier to understand what someone’s talking about when you can see them. Skype’s video voicemails have the added benefit of using video even when the other person is not around.
This feature is a much nicer way for people to stay in touch and with the ability to show someone what you’re working on, it should make it easier …
Is Skype free?
It sure is. But, is it worth it?
Businesses Can’t Rely on Skype, Google Hangouts
If you’re a remote employee, doing some freelance work, or you’re just calling your mom then Skype or Google Hangouts will work great. These are wonderful free video conferencing services that are easily accessible to everyone.
Well, just about everyone. Some countries are banning Skype.
That’s an example of where the problems begin, for businesses.
Quality and Reliability
Quality and reliability aren’t really concerns for one-on-one video chats. But as the number of people, sites, and the importance of the video call increases, the horsepower and available options (we’re talking about cars, right?) of your video conferencing system needs to be increased as well.
A new Frost & Sullivan whitepaper was shared by the Polycom Video Conferencing division that shows how video can be used by businesses to gain a competitive advantage.

Via Medical Economics…
Telemedicine is now “mainstream,” reports Medical Economics writer, Beth Thomas Hertz.
Citing a report from InMedica, Hertz explains that, ” 308,000 patients around the world were monitored remotely by providers in 2012 for congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes, hypertension and mental health conditions.”
And that’s just the beginning.
The number of virtual patients is expected to balloon to 1.8 million in the next four years.
Telemedicine can be defined as video conferencing with a patient through HIPAA approved telemedicine kits, mobile monitoring devices, use of electronic medical data, or accessing information from a smartphone app.
Kim Dunn, MD, explains to Hertz that in her Bellaire, Texas practice, “Telemedicine is fundamentally about communication, and that’s how we use it.”
Telemedicine uses are expanding …
