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…

Skype Group Calling? 6 Ways VSee Stands Above

1.  Skype’s beta only allows up to 5 callers—I’ve had an 11-way call* on VSee. 2.  Skype only shares desktop OR video—VSee shows both. 3.  Speaking of screen sharing:  Skype’s screen sharing quality can be sub-par—VSee’s starts pixel perfect. 4.  Skype has little else for collaborative tools—VSee does it all.…

Top 5 Tips To Being An Effective Remote Worker

We’ve devoted posts to the corporate environment of remote work and distributed teams.  Today’s installment is directed at our end users who find themselves to be, you guessed it, remote workers. There is sometimes an assumption within the tech world that any problem can be solved by a tool.  “If…

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…

Don’t Forget Lighting! part 2

I didn’t forget the promise for a post on daytime lighting for a video conference call. Here’s an example of my office, with a typical issue I see when talking to people on VSee:

Share Valentine’s Day With Video…

Recently, I was in a hotel in San Diego for VSee-related business.  Milton and Colleen were also both in San Diego with me. My wife, however, was still up in Anaheim.  Milton and Colleen’s families were both up in Northern California. Let me tell you, a video call is so…

Tips on When to Use Email, Phone, or Video

We’ve all been there.  Someone sends you an email asking you a question.  You respond and ask for some clarification.  Three days of back-and-forth emails later, you get fed up with how slow the discussion is going and call the other person.  Three minutes later, you both have all the…

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…

Applications Abound

My dad’s a lawyer. Yes, we’ve heard all the jokes.  Heck, I like to tell them.  But I’m proud to say he’s one of the good ones. He’s also a good example of what I was writing about at the end of last week.  You know—that Hillary’s speech is a…

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…

The Competition is Heating Up…

…But it’s just not there yet.  I mean, we’re free for most users, right? So this was an interesting bit of news today from TechCrunch and ViVu. Basically, ViVu created a Skype plug-in called “VuRoom” that will enable multiparty calling and some additional collaboration tools. Aaaand they’re going to charge…

Updates on Haiti Tech and VSee

Just a short little post to follow up on the CNN article from a few posts ago and the story about VSee and telemedicine for disaster relief a few posts before that. First, there’s a new article in CNN today regarding CrisisCamp and the results of their weekend creating tools…

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…

Why Joel Stein is Wrong about Video…

Mr. Stein of Time recently wrote a post saying he dislikes video calls. Fortunately, I thinks he’s all wrong. His main arguments are that you lose the ability to zone out without getting caught when you make video calls, you can no longer multitask, and you lose the ability to…

Video Communication and Disasters

The recent earthquake in Haiti and the ongoing tragedy has reminded me of the great responsibility of VSee and the industry as a whole to continue advances in disaster relief, search and rescue, and reconstruction. Now, we’ve worked with several agencies using VSee in its normal function of video conferencing…
