LONDON, February 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Business visual communications and collaboration - whether in the form of desktop videotelephony, group videoconferencing or high-end telepresence - is finally able to deliver on its many promises and even greater potential. Growing demand for telepresence and HD videoconferencing, together with rising interest in managed services for corporate 'video estates' consisting potentially of mixed populations of legacy ISDN-based videoconferencing, proprietary telepresence, and standards-compliant videoconferencing, is spurred by the recent recession.


These market developments will be discussed during Frost Sullivan's next quarterly Analyst Briefing on the Visual Collaboration Market on Wednesday, 10 February 2010, at 15.00 GMT. The presentation will review the very latest changes within the industry, with a particular focus on the changing face of telepresence, and the rapidly growing demand for managed visual collaboration services.

The visual element is the final piece of the unified communications jigsaw puzzle, says Dominic Dodd, principal analyst and member of Frost Sullivan's 25-strong global team of unified communications (UC) specialists. The acquisition of Tandberg by Cisco will trigger frantic activity among the key UC players, all eager to secure the vital video capability within their own product and service portfolios.

Whether based in the network, on the desktop, or in an organization's equipment room, the solutions that vendors and service providers are striving to create have increased in capability with each stage of development of unified communications. Video has for a number of years been the final piece of that jigsaw.

This briefing will be of interest to business leaders in the unified communications industry, particularly those engaged in developing and marketing visual collaboration products and services such as manufacturers, service providers, network operators, systems integrators, and applications developers.

Upon receipt of the above information, a registration link will be e-mailed to you.
