How to buy video conference equipment
Sponsored by SearchUnifiedCommunications.com
Video conferencing is not new technology, but that doesn't make it any easier to select the best video conferencing equipment for a particular enterprise. The options range from free social platforms to Web conferencing platforms to telepresence rooms that can cost $100,000 or more to outfit. This Buyer's Guide on video conferencing equipment focuses on room-based and telepresence video conferencing, which require equipment, as opposed to Web conferencing, which is generally accessible over a computer or mobile device by logging into a Web platform.
Well-integrated video conference equipment is increasingly essential to the enterprise, particularly with the infusion of Millennial workers into the workplace, who are adept with technology and comfortable with video, and tend to have a preference for working in teams. While Millennials may not yet be making the purchasing decisions, their influence is significant. Companies have had to adapt to changing demographics in order to recruit younger workers.
