IP Communications Limited announced
that the company plans to introduce more facilities in its “VideoLink.co.nz” HD videoconferencing solution. The news comes as more organizations look for the technology as a way to limit travel.
In particular, increasing concern over the swine flu has had an adverse affect on executives’ travel plans. And many people said they prefer the safety of videoconferencing to actual travel.
There are other reasons too. While many companies are looking to cut costs, some others want to make a positive impact on the nature by reducing the carbon footprint that is generated while they are traveling. This offers great opportunity for the future of VideoLink.co.nz. IP Communications officials said they plan to introduce several new features soon.
IP Communications Limited introduced the product in January in Christchurch, New Zealand. Since its launch, company said the product’s backers have been impressed with the growth.
“Avoiding travel because of swine flu has been amongst the biggest contributors to growth over the last six months,” Richard Bishop, managing director of IP Communications Limited, said in a statement. “Recent customer activities include meetings by health professionals, board meetings, remote projects and job interviews - all customers are looking to avoid unnecessary international travel and risking potential swine flu infection.”
VideoLink provides a comprehensive in-house IP based video conferencing facility featuring a LCD TV screen, the latest in high definition video conferencing technology from LifeSize (News
) and full service from the company’s staff. The facility has been specifically designed for the needs of our corporate clients and is often for domestic and international video conferencing sessions, IP Communications said.
The company recently released
LifeSize Express 200, which provides immersive, high definition experience over your existing broadband network. According to the company, this is the first video communications system to support dual video and content in high definition. Express 200 makes superior video performance affordable for anyone within any organization to improve both quality of work, and quality of life.
