vcinsight_logo_171x171px.jpgLondon January 14, 2008 -- The online Specialist Newsletter Videoconferencing Insight has announced its Editor's Choice Awards for Achievements in the Year 2007. To qualify for an Award, a videoconferencing system must have been launched or substantially improved in calendar 2007. The Editor takes the side of the user and looks for innovation, reliability, ease of use and price-performance.

"The videoconferencing industry made giant steps forward in 2007 by extending and enhancing the range of High Definition Videoconferencing and HD Telepresence Systems offered to customers. The industry has made video meetings easy to pre-schedule and set up; and it has created a natural in-the-same-room visual and audio experience," said Richard Line, Editor of Videoconferencing Insight. "Besides improving worker productivity and multi-site collaboration, videoconferencing is part of today's corporate answer to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and so averting climate change," he added.

These, the first five awards, were published in the 9 January 2007 issue to be found at and after 16 January under New Equipment. They are:

Cisco Systems: Telepresence Company of the Year 2007.

"Cisco Telepresence Meeting systems are superior both in concept and in implementation to the telepresence systems of other videoconferencing vendors. In December 2007, Cisco added: (1) the capability to call Cisco Telepresence systems on other MPLS VPN networks and (2) the capability to include legacy videoconferencing systems in meetings using the interoperability of a Cisco TelePresence gateway," said Richard Line, Editor of Videoconferencing Insight. "The main difference between Cisco TelePresence and legacy videoconferencing is the actual experience you get...The six persons at the other site are both lifelike and life-size... The audio realistically replicates "in the same room" sounds. It looks and feels as if all the participants are in the same room having a natural conversation," he added enthusiastically.
