The network provider believes that its service will see use at customers who are turning to video conferencing as an alternative to face-to-face meetings to boost productivity, trim business travel costs and help reduce carbon emissions associated with business travel.

According to a study conducted in 2006 by Frost & Sullivan (sponsored by Verizon Business and Microsoft), collaboration is a key driver of business performance. The study also found that IT professionals around the world see their collaborative efforts as highly productive and believe that collaboration through communications technologies can provide a competitive advantage.

Running over the Verizon Business global public and Private IP network, the HD video conferencing is designed to provide images with finer resolution and a sharper, clearer picture than videoconferencing services using standard definition (SD) video. The HD video conferencing experience supported by Verizon offers a screen resolution frame size of 1,280 x 720 pixels and a transmission speed of 30 frames per second.
