Conferencing Zone Week in Review: Yamaha, Frost & Sullivan, Sennheiser & More

June 10, 2017

Welcome back to the week in review, where we take a look at all the top stories making headlines in the Conferencing Zone this week.

With so many conferencing and huddle room solutions available, it can be hard for consumers to determine which provider can best suit their needs. Too many offerings can become overwhelming, which is why awards can be so helpful in picking out the best of the best. Yamaha recently received recognition from Frost & Sullivan when it received the Growth Excellence Leadership Award in Global Tabletop Audio Conferencing Endpoint Market. Yamaha powers several solutions, including Revolabs' newly launched product in the huddle room arena. Find out more HERE.

Revolabs and Yamaha aren’t the only companies coming together on conferencing. Sennheiser and Wesrcon-Comstor also have a new partnership in the works, which will allow Westcon-Comstor to bring Sennheiser material to the Canadian market. Westcon-Comstor would have access to the entire Enterprise Solutions portfolio at Sennheiser's disposal. TMC’s Steve Anderson has full coverage HERE.

There was also some big news out of Texas this week, as Governor Greg Abbott signed the Telemedicine Bill, allowing even more people to gain access to healthcare. Although telemedicine can’t be used for major health issues, it’s certainly beneficial in areas where people don’t have a doctor to go to at all, even for minor illnesses. “Many of the counties in Texas, I think 35 counties overall, don't have any physicians at all,” said Jason Gorevic, Teladoc President and CEO, “and the state ranks 46th in the country in terms of primary care physicians per thousand people.” Those aren’t good numbers, but telemedicine should be able to help. Everything you need to know is HERE.

Conferencing is certainly useful for telemedicine purposes, but healthcare isn’t the only industry it’s revolutionizing. The legal system, educational institutions, the fashion industry and various other areas are all benefitting from video conferencing technology. A deeper look at video conferencing’s uses can be found HERE.

That’s all for this week. Come back next week to read all the latest news in the Conferencing  space.
