Mercedes-Benz Viano Vision Diamond is Ready to Videoconference in Style

April 23, 2012 | David S. Maldow, Esq.
viano_vision_1.jpgThe new Viano Vision Diamond has a number of jaw dropping options, as one would expect from a new Mercedes Benz show car. What we find most interesting is the impressive level of iOS integration.  Yes, there is an app for this car. Everything from videoconferencing, surfing the internet, watching TV, controlling the interior lighting and sound system, to changing the tint of the windows can be controlled from your iPad or iPhone.

viano_vision_2.jpgConcerned about the risk of videoconferencing while driving? No need to worry, this is a chauffeured vehicle. The video screen is on the privacy panel behind the driver, so passengers can safely video chat while relax back with the automatic Champagne cooler and the heated massage chairs.

viano_vision_3.pngI don't think "highway VC" is necessarily the next big frontier in videoconferencing, but it certainly is part of the current "anywhere, anytime" trend. The point isn't that we desperately need videoconferencing specifically in cars, the point is that videoconferencing can and should be available beyond the meeting room, if not everywhere. Having a 40" screen in your car may still be a little out there, but if you do have one, why wouldn't you want videoconferencing on it?
