Juniper Networks Invests In Vidyo

Yesterday, it was announced that Vidyo has received another round of funding, this time from Juniper Networks, bringing their total funding to $97M. From the article: “Vidyo makes video conferencing software that allows organizations to very efficiently and effectively make and receive video calls across any number of connected devices.…

VSee: Video Chat + Collaboration Go Together Like Chips and Salsa

“So how is VSee different from Skype?” This is one of the most commonly asked questions we get at VSee.   It’s one of those things that’s hard to explain unless you’ve seen VSee in action.  I like how E27’s Joanna Yeo says it in her recent VSee article: VSee…

Back to the enterprise

Cisco’s foray into the consumer market has proved too challenging for the networking giant. This morning, Cisco Systems announced that it would cut 550 jobs as part of its plan to exit some of its consumer business. This includes closing the video recording device division which manufactures the once-great Flip…

VSee at the Sales 2.0 Conference

VSee participated in the Sales 2.0 Conference held at the Four Seasons Hotel in San Francisco earlier this month. The team (both in person and remote) had a great time introducing VSee to the experienced and field-seasoned sales leaders. We were really encouraged that they loved how VSee would help…

Polycom Vaporware Announcement?

My friend Jeff Urdan, honcho of VeaMea (a friendly competitor of ours that uses a client-server architecture), sent me an interesting email yesterday with the title “A laugh for your blog?”  Apparently the big guys, realizing they’re a little behind in desktop videoconferencing innovation (read: not optimized for ad hoc workflow),…

The New Release is Out! (10.0.0.1103)

Obviously, I’m quite excited by all our releases.  This one, however, has a few extra treats that I want to point out in addition to our release notes. First, if you are a home (non-commercial) user, you now have free HD video calling.  So whether you hook up to your…

The Pulse Network tracked down our own Bill Flutie, Director of Sales and Business Development, at the Inbound Marketing Summit, held last week in Gillette Stadium. Here’s what he had to say:

Cisco for Home? Skype for Business? Skype V. Cisco?

Wow. The last couple days have been full of news and it’s time to write about it!  Let’s take a look at some of the most interesting headlines for videoconferencing and discuss the implications: Skype, which keeps claiming to be a business conferencing tool but isn’t, hired Tony Bates to…

Conference Room Setups — 1

Lest you think I don’t support video collaboration in conference rooms, I actually love it!  I just don’t think an expensive telepresence setup is needed for a successful conference.  For a sliver of a fraction of a percentage of the cost, you can have a great conference room setup using…

“The Dangers of Videoconferencing”

Great stuff.  Thank you FedEx! Laughs aside, I feel this video actually brings up two counterintuitive but legitimate points: 1) The first is the current theme of my most recent posts:  Creating an illusion in your videoconference is simply not necessary or useful.  Heck, in this video it was outright…

Why Video Collaboration Needs to be on Desktops

Every day I have at least one conversation that revolves around using VC (“video conferencing” or “video collaboration”) to “get things done” rather than “meet”.  Obviously efforts to increase acceptance of putting video collaboration tools where they’re most beneficial are gaining traction. For example, I know of at least one…
