Video conferencing has been a critical component of business communication for many years. But today, with more integration possibilities, video conferencing has evolved into a more collaborative experience. With more powerful technology, communication can be about more than just being face-to-face. It can include content sharing, white-boarding, and annotation – and other tools that make it possible to have an actual “working meeting.” Video collaboration systems bring people together in new ways, expanding on the capabilities of traditional video conferencing.
AVI-SPL’s video collaboration solutions include the ability to see and edit the same documents in real time — documents that can be shared wirelessly from personal devices, annotated, and saved. The fluid desktop experience of Skype for Business works in group collaboration settings. Your video collaboration solution can be sourced from an on-premise system, a cloud subscription service, or a hybrid of the two.
Complementing these enhanced video collaboration systems are open collaboration workspaces and huddle rooms that make it easy to quickly gather in small groups, connect with others outside the office or organization, and exchange ideas.
- As employees bring two or more personal devices (like smartphone and tablets) to work they require the video collaboration solutions that will enable them to be productive from onsite and offsite locations.
- It’s expected that by 2017, the amount of space allotted per employee will be just half what it was in 2010. This reduction is due to the rising cost of commercial real estate and a focus on open collaboration spaces that promote efficiency and invite coworkers and clients to come together for spur-of-the-moment meetings that include video collaboration tools.
- Sustainable building practices focus on the well-being of employees.
