Conferencing experienced no shortage of news this week, let’s take a lap around the track and see what we missed from the week that was in The Conferencing Zone.

TMC’s Clayton Hamshar reported this week on a vital cog in corporate America, teamwork.  Corporations first discovered email as a means to keep all team members on the same page. As great as the innovation was, it was limited, whereas conferencing technology offers two-way interactions that involve ‘face-to-face’ communication. Video conferencing allows for file sharing and real-time communications, easing team collaboration.

Jenne Inc. this week announced the addition of a new Senior Director of Cloud Solutions and Product Management, Patrick Howard. Howard is a seasoned sales and vendor management executive who is ready to take the distributor of IP telephony, audio and video conferencing, unified communications, data networking, and surveillance products to new heights in this burgeoning space.

With the IoT growing by leaps and bounds, Vidyo completed a round of funding to bring video communication to the Internet of Things. Vidyo’s (News - Alert) is embracing connected solutions with the aim to improve upon the user experience with the millions of new platforms, appliances, devices, services and all that is the Internet of Things.

TMC’s (News - Alert) Jyohti Shanbhag shed some light this week on Lane End Conference Centre’s new LCD Data Projection systems. The U.K.-based conference center provides high-speed and recently installed the Christie LW401 data projectors in four of its training rooms. The cutting-edge projectors offer brighter video and the ease to connect wirelessly through your laptop or by simply plugging in a USB stick. The conferencing center provides for up to 150 participants in its ultramodern facility.

That was just a quick rundown of the week that was in conferencing, stay current by popping into The Conferencing Zone. See you next week for another Week in Review!

How often have you had a teleconference where—because of audio-related issues—you had difficulty in conducting an important meeting? Or in some cases, not even being able to make a clear connection at all? Curtiss Singleton, Director of Sales for the Americas at Revolabs, Inc., discusses conferencing solutions that not only provide unmatched audio quality, but ones that also “cut the cord”—giving you the freedom to move around the workspace. Doug Green, Publisher of Telecom Reseller, speaks with JP Carney, President and CEO of Revolabs, about the company, the importance of audio quality in UC, the compatibility of their products with various UC platforms, and their acquisition by Yamaha after one year. They discuss how clear audio for teleconferencing is the core element of true collaboration.
