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…

Chat to Video in Sales

Lets say Susie is a sales rep and she’s meeting a customer in her office.  The customer asks a question that Susie doesn’t know the answer to, and she doesn’t know who to ask. Phone or video are not good choices here because Susie doesn’t know who to call.  A…

GUI 3.0!!! VSee v.726 is live

If you have your installation of VSee set for automatic update, you may have launched it to discover your GUI looks very different from a few days ago. That’s because we just released 726, which, in addition to many other improvements, includes a major overhaul of our already simplified interface…

Reasons for Collaboration Moderation

Believe it or not, you act differently when you’re on a phone call. And different from that on video. Oh, and you reply differently via chat. And why did you respond that way in email? Folks, it’s not news, but the medium informs the communication.  Obviously we think everyone should…

Just before the weekend, we released 10.0.0.421.  This version has many significant enhancements over 104 and 1201, which I’d like to go over with you here.

For example, I know of at least one…

Today was About the Buzz…

If you read any tech news at all today, you read about Google Buzz.  ReadWriteWeb, TechCrunch, you name it (CNN), they wrote about it.  (Figures CNN’s headline mentions taking on Facebook…right when I start a full court Facebook blitz.  Dang.) Well, the reason I bring it up here isn’t to…

The More Things Change…

…The More They Stay the Same. This is as true with communications as it is with societal ills. There was a study from 18 years ago (and here) to see how to make video conferencing (which we’ve gone well beyond now into app sharing and collaborative tools) more palatable to…

Hillary’s Speech Internet Freedom

Wow.  Great speech. I recommend that everyone read this speech given by Hillary Clinton today. From a video collaboration and human-computer interaction standpoint, this is a watershed moment in politics.  There are plenty of articles already discussing the humanist message or how Google’s showdown with China changed the world and…

Don’t Forget Lighting! part 1

Ah, lighting. Never underestimate the importance of lighting in a video call. No matter whether you’re using VSee or Skype, Cisco or Polycom, the people you’re talking to want to see you.  They don’t want to see… …which is lit mostly from the front.  You’ll note that due to the smaller space I am…
