Regular Telepresence Options readers may be aware of our recent and on-going work to refresh and upgrade the Telepresence and Videoconferencing Catalog. As part of this effort, we have opened it up to non-sponsors, making it a truly comprehensive third party overview of the visual collaboration industry. In addition, we have been adding new features, such as relevant news and twitter feeds in catalog sections, and we have big plans to continue improving and enhancing the experience, and finding new ways to provide additional free value to our readers.

The VCI-Group has also been working hard to refresh and update their programs and resources to meet the needs of today's visual collaboration users. With this in mind, the VCI-Group has partnered with Telepresence Options to create the best third party, free, resource in the industry. The new VCI-Group Visual Collaboration Industry Sourcebook is a great start for those seeking to learn about the technology and organizations in this space.

The new Sourcebook features quick links to VCI-Group benefits and resources, including the new VCI-Group Membership Discount program. You can also sign up for the next VCI-Group Live! session, or check out the archives to catch up on what you missed. As new programs come on-line from this revitalized organization, they will be immediately reflected in the Sourcebook.

In addition to the VCI-Group resources, the Sourcebook features a quick and easy categorization of the key industry segments. We ditched the laundry list of niche subcategories, in favor of keeping things simple for the reader. The categories and entries will continue to be regularly updated and altered as this quickly developing industry continues to evolve.

Behind the scenes, the Sourcebook is powered by the same engine as our Telepresence and Videoconferencing Catalog. For example, both guides lead to the same landing page for Cloud Based VC. We are constantly adding new resources and information to these category landing pages, such as relevant news and Twitter feeds and even free third party feature comparison charts, such as the cloud interop chart shown below.

Expect a lot more to come from this new VCI-Group and Telepresence Options partnership. TPO will soon be adding additional TPO comparison charts to cover other segments, while the VCI-Group expects to improve and expand their discount program. As both organizations work to create great new user resources, the value of the Sourcebook will increase twofold. In addition, both organizations are working together to gather, collect and index relevant free information to be listed and included in the Sourcebook, making it an even better resource for today's savvy visual collaboration technology user.�
