The video conferencing systems have completely reshaped the corporate communications infrastructure. Educational institutes, government agencies and companies of all sizes are now eager to embrace video conferencing solution that has escaped the challenges and disadvantages of virtual communications.

Recently Sabre (News - Alert), a technology company serving travel agencies and corporation, has launched Sabre Virtual Meetings, a patent pending platform to shop and schedule high-definition video conference meetings worldwide.

Sabre Virtual Meetings can be connected to many telecom and video conferencing providers to facilitate real-time shopping, live scheduling and confirmation simultaneously across multiple enterprises. The company has developed new Virtual Meetings Red App to be available through its newly-launched Sabre Red App Centre.

“By incorporating video conferencing into the travel buying process and making it easy to schedule rooms, Sabre Virtual Meetings will significantly drive the video market forward,” said Joseph Laezza (News - Alert), president and CEO for Glowpoint, a provider for global cloud-managed video services.

 Developed on cutting- edge technology, Sabre Virtual Meetings has been the winner of its Business Traveler Innovation Awards in the travel management category.

“Sabre’s scheduling platform will mean a step change for the video conferencing industry,” said Joseph Laezza, president and CEO for Glowpoint (News - Alert), a premier provider for global cloud-managed video services. “By incorporating video conferencing into the travel buying process and making it easy to schedule rooms, Sabre Virtual Meetings will significantly drive the video market forward.”

“Even though we’re seeing some recovery in business travel, cost-conscious corporations still want to use HD video conferencing to improve collaboration and increase ROI on travel and technology investments,” said Greg Webb, president, Sabre Travel Network. “One of the biggest challenges they face is the inability to search, book and connect video conferencing systems. Sabre Virtual Meetings solves for that and makes it easy to set up internal video conferencing meetings and connect private-to-public or public-to-public rooms.”
