Videoconferencing Hardware is Dead.... Long Live Videoconferencing Hardware, will explore the growth areas of videoconferencing that many analysts predict will grow to beyond $16 Billion by 2017

JD_Vaughn2.jpgSan Francisco, California May 03, 2012 -- JD Vaughn, principal and founder of JD Vaughn Consulting, an industry leading business development consulting firm, will host a continuation of the panel from the TeleSpan Workshop, The Future of Conferencing, held in Las Vegas on March 15, 2012. The panel discussion, entitled, Videoconferencing Hardware is Dead, Long Live Videoconferencing Hardware, will explore the growth areas of videoconferencing that many analysts predict will grow to beyond $16 Billion by 2017. Panelists for this Webinar to be held May 8, 2012 include: Stephen Demmings, President of the VCI-Group, Jim Fairweather, SVP Vidyo, Bob Romano, VP Global Marketing, Radvision, Jonathan Schlesinger, CEO Connexus, Rob Sheeley, CEO Vaddio, and Scott Wharton, CEO Vidtel. The panel, hosted by Arkadin, begins at 1:00 PM EDT/10:00 AM PDT, Tuesday May 8, 2011. Admission is free; and early reservations are recommended.

The panel will explore the segments of the videoconferencing market that are expected to experience exponential growth, as well as segments that are expected to continue to rapidly decline, such as hardware based videoconferencing codecs.

"This is a diverse panel not always in agreement", said J D Vaughn, moderator for this session. "They often have different opinions and views about the industry and how it will grow, but they share a common goal. They would all like to see resellers, service providers and end users benefit from the rapid market growth that has been forecasted for the next five years."

The panel will explore the impact of the 20 billion videoconferencing enabled mobile end points forecasted by 2020, cloud services such as "any to any" and how resellers, service providers and end users can add new products and services while avoiding capital investment. Additionally, the panel will examine the market momentum enhanced by IT managers more willing to adopt videoconferencing as it becomes simply one more application in a more IT friendly client-server model.

"I have been in the industry for over 25 years", replied J D Vaughn. "We have seen market leaders come and go as they failed to shift with the technology and market. Currently software based codecs, immersive/custom rooms, managed and cloud based products and services along with vertical collaboration applications are enjoying spectacular growth, and those of us that can operate in these areas of growth while positioning ourselves for the " next new market momentum" should still be around to reap the benefits of this growth. If history has shown us anything in this industry, it has shown us over and over that today's market leaders can easily become tomorrow's market losers if we are not well positioned for the "next new market momentum" while concurrently capturing more than our own fair share of the current marketplace. This is the goal for our webinar; to help resellers, service providers and end users engage and benefit from the current market while concurrently preparing for the next market shift."
