Meeting Room Video Conferencing – A Brave New World

First the Earth Cooled

Video conferencing devices for the enterprise conference room were first introduced in the mid-to-late 1980s, which is roughly a million Internet years ago.

Deployments back then were based on dedicated devices running dedicated applications on dedicated networks in dedicated conference rooms.

Fast forward to today and the situation could hardly be more different.  Meeting room video conferencing is now provided in many different forms.  In fact, some rooms support multiple ways to host or participate in a video session.
