As the use of visual collaboration technologies continues to grow, many organizations are turning to analytics to help manage, plan and optimize their video environment.

What’s Standards-Based Video Conferencing Anyway? “Are you currently set up with some sort of standards-based system for video conferencing?” The question itself exemplifies the inability of current players to understand the shift that WebRTC is bringing with it–and here, WebRTC is just a catalyst for a larger industry trend in communications. I have WebRTC on my browser. I’ve got Skype installed and Hangouts as well. Between these three services, do I need any “standards-based system for video conferencing” to talk to anyone?
