Accenture: Create Webcasts from Videoconference Studios
Videoconferencing studios and online video studios use the same equipment, so companies that have made an investment in videoconferencing are ready to go with online video. At the recent Streaming Medea East conference in New York City, Accenture's video service delivery lead George Levar explained howAccenture built a videoconference area several years back to save on travel costs for senior management.
"That was very much a travel-avoidance cost-driven decision. What we've done since then is to look at this as integration with webcasts as a way to increase the value you get from your videoconference and telepresence investment without having to do too much additional investment," Levar explained. "Your videoconference and telepresence is some cost of bandwidth you have and the network to make all that connect is already there. So, if you can integrate it well into your streaming, you then transform these videoconference end-points from a point-to-point device into a global broadcasting device."
While the studio might seem simple by online video standards, it does the job of letting senior executives communicate what they need to say.
