Telepresence and visual collaboration consultancy Human Productivity Lab (HPL) is pleased to announce that David S. Maldow has joined as an analyst and writer. David is a visual collaboration technologist with extensive expertise in testing, evaluating, and explaining telepresence and other visual collaboration technologies.  David will be focused on providing third-party independent testing of telepresence and visual collaboration endpoints and infrastructure and helping industry participants explain complicated subjects through white papers and other end-user facing publications.  Finally, David will be a contributor to the Human Productivity Lab's publications: Telepresence Options and Telepresence Options Magazine.

Prior to joining the team at HPL and Telepresence Options, David worked at industry analyst firm Wainhouse Research (WR) as a member of their video collaboration coverage team. While at WR, he supported a variety of videoconferencing, streaming, and end-user consulting projects. David managed WR's videoconferencing test lab where he oversaw and conducted evaluations of rich media products and solutions. David wrote, or co-wrote, numerous evaluations and other reports for WR publications.

David has hands on experience with many videoconferencing and other rich media solutions from his years of conducting evaluations, as well as an insider perspective gained from countless briefings with product development teams. As such, David brings a unique blend of user and industry knowledge to the team.  Human Productivity Lab President and Telepresence Options publisher Howard Lichtman commented "David has a superb knack for explaining complicated technologies which should pair nicely with Telepresence Options' ability to disseminate to the largest identifiable audience in the world interested in telepresence and visual collaboration. 
"Telepresence, visual collaboration, and rich media are incredibly exciting fields right now," commented David.  "The technology has reached a point where it not only provides an acceptable experience; it can provide a fantastic experience. Unfortunately, the technology can still be confusing and overwhelming. The Human Productivity Lab is helping people understand their "telepresence options" and how to use these collaboration capabilities to increase productivity and improve quality of life. I have been a believer in visual collaboration since day one and I am excited to be a part of a team making the dream a reality for end-users."  David can be reached at [email protected]
