Big Time Video Conferencing at a Smaller Price

Techstination feature for Thursday, August 20, 2009

Big time video conferencing at a smaller price. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. Video conferencing set ups that lots of big corporations are using can cost tens of thousands of dollars. The idea is to make it seem as if those gathered in remote locations are in the same room. A company called Avistar is making high quality video conferencing solutions available at prices that are affordable even for a small office/home office. Chief marketing officer Stephen Epstein...

" One of the simplest is our hosted video service. You could essentially subscribe to the service, have this video for thirty dollars a month per user. You can make calls between other Avistar units and to other room solutions."

That thirty dollars a month also includes the ability to call regular phone lines. Avistar says with just about every business...large and small...looking to save money... video conferencing solutions are growing in popularity. You can find us with archives, interviews and I'm Fred Fishkin.
