LONDON, May 18 /PRNewswire/ --

- Frost Sullivan to Host Analyst Briefing on Visual Collaboration Market on Tuesday, 26 May 2009 at 15.00 GMT

At a time of global warming and threatening pandemics - and after a number of false starts - videoconferencing is finally making good on its many earlier promises.


High quality pictures and sound, combined with new IP networks, can deliver an experience in-line with users' expectations and reliably replace many face-to-face meetings. However, the financial crisis and faltering global economies now threaten this resurgent visual collaboration technology.

In just the last two years, the market for videoconferencing and telepresence has grown dramatically, spurred by a new generation of products and network services that can deliver what we all have hoped visual collaboration can really become, comments Dominic Dodd, global program director for unified communications and collaboration at growth consulting firm Frost Sullivan. This progress has been hard won, and comes at the right time to help organizations tackle the many challenges they now face; including how to reduce operational costs and improve productivity in the current recession.

Frost Sullivan is pleased to announce its 2009 quarterly analyst briefing presentation on the Visual Collaboration Market to be held on Tuesday, 26 May 2009 at 15.00 GMT.

Highlights of the briefing include a review of the findings of Frost Sullivan's recently completed survey of C-level executives, aimed at understanding their decision-making around communications and collaboration products and services during this recession.

This briefing will benefit videoconferencing manufacturers and vendors, systems integrators, services providers, and telcos involved in the distribution, resale, and delivery of visual collaboration products and services.

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