The new report covers all phases of the enterprise videoconferencing equipment market including telepresence systems, room videoconferencing devices, and personal/desktop videoconferencing solutions. The market analysis by the boutique research firm concludes that growth over the next two years will be more in line with long-term figures, but then will return to the hyper-growth numbers experienced by the industry in the past 18 months.
