CommunicAsia Top 3 – Videoconferencing
This is my last day at the CommunicAsia show in Singapore, and I must admit to being impressed. The city is beautiful, vibrant, well-organized, and full of interesting things, much like the show itself. Coming away from the show, I’d like to touch on three of the technologies that seemed to be very visible at the show, which I’ll detail in this post, and two more above. One of these was surely videoconferencing. The linked article is from the official show publication, TelecomAsia.net (which I frequently read – it’s good), they discuss how broadband and fast IP networks has driven all Asian videoconferencing to voice and video over Internet. Unlike in the US, where voice conferencing is separated from video (the US does 85% of the world’s voice teleconferences), in Asia the market is more fertile for combined voice and data and possibly PowerPoing conferencing services. Comprehensive services are being further driven by decreased cost and increased penetration of broadband data.
