We all know about Skype and many of us have used Skype to make at least ONE call, for free. Fewer of us have used Skype or other tools for desktop video conferencing – but it’s time.
Enterprise Efficiency writes: Last week I had the unique opportunity to talk with two of the leaders in desktop video conferencing: Skype and ViVu.
First David Gurlé, vice president of Skype Enterprise, gave me a quick overview of the new Group Video Calling for businesses that Skype is promoting now. Video calling represented about 40 percent of all Skype-to-Skype minutes in 2010.
We had a three-way conference with Chaim Haas from Kaplow, the press agency handling Skype in the US. The video quality was excellent, and I could see them clearly, despite my slow Internet connection. The system uses dedicated servers to balance the bandwidth among the users, so the individual Internet connections are not reducing the overall quality of the system.
