Video conferencing moving to smart gadgets, influenced by social networks
The rise in popularity of social networking over the past few years has meant that video conferencing is now moving away from the boardroom and on to handheld gadgets such as smartphones and tablets, according to an industry expert.
Thep Ritrangkla, regional manager of Polycom Thailand, told the Bangkok Post that the success of the likes of Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Google+ alongside the astronomical sales of smart wireless devices means that demand for conferencing facilities is being reshaped.
The company is taking advantage of this through its real-presence cloud software which allows contacts from social media networks and business email to be included in a video call.
Mr Ritrangkla explained that in the past conferencing would have just been used with an internal system, however, it is now possible to expand the service to any�IP telephonyconnection to dial in to suppliers, partners and customers.
