FRAMINGHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Enterprise Videoconferencing and Telepresence Equipment Qview showed mostly positive results in the second quarter of 2015 (2Q15) with overall videoconferencing equipment revenue increasing 4.8% quarter over quarter and 5.1% year over year. However, the enterprise video infrastructure equipment continued its decline due to the increasing availability of video cloud service offerings. Total worldwide enterprise video equipment market revenue in 2Q15 was over $507 million, up from $484 million in 1Q15. The total number of videoconferencing units sold in 2Q15 increased 7.4% quarter over quarter and 21.0% year over year in 2Q15.
"And customers continue to work through determining how best to provision their video deployments, as more software-centric and cloud-based service offerings become part of the enterprise video market landscape."
From a market segment perspective:
- Multi-codec telepresence equipment revenue increased 70.3% quarter over quarter and 8.0% year over year. Unit shipments were also up 67.7% sequentially and 14.8% year over year.
- Room-based videoconferencing system revenue increased 3.7% over the first quarter and 8.8% compared to one year ago. Unit shipments increased 1.6% quarter over quarter and 11.1% year over year.

- Video infrastructure equipment revenue - including MCUs and other video-related infrastructure - continued its declining trend, decreasing -19.4% quarter over quarter and -30.0% year over year.
Regional results in 2Q15 were as follows:
- North America (U.S. and Canada) revenue increased 15.4% quarter over quarter and 6.5% year over year.

"Some much-needed good news for the enterprise videoconferencing market - revenue and video endpoint shipments were up in all major regions in the second quarter, except Latin America," said Rich Costello, Senior Analyst, Enterprise Communications Infrastructure, at IDC. "A surprising 2Q15 highlight had multi-codec telepresence systems up in both revenue and unit shipments, as the availability of some new high-end systems positively impacted the market. This interrupted a downward trend for these high-end video solutions."
