Constellation Energy Uses Video Conferencing to Facilitate Training at its Nuclear Power Plants
The use of video conferencing technology has facilitated face-to-face -training classes among all three power plants

Recognized as a 2009 Fortune 500 corporation, Constellation Energy is one of the nation's largest providers of energy products and services. The company is headquartered in Baltimore, MD, and generates and distributes electricity, nuclear power, coal, natural gas, and renewable resources to points throughout the United States. As a publicly traded company with responsibility to its shareholders and the local communities in which it operates, Constellation Energy has taken steps to increase efficiency within the organization and to support eco-friendly initiatives. One of the ways the company is achieving these goals is though the use of video conferencing technology, which it has implemented at corporate offices located in more than twenty cities nationwide.
Constellation Energy uses video conferencing to facilitate collaboration among remote locations. Video is used to conduct executive and board meetings, sales conferences, for collaboration among various internal business groups, and to communicate with external businesses partners. Through its extensive use of video, Constellation Energy has greatly reduced the need for business related travel, saving the company valuable time and travel related expenses. The use of video in place of air and automobile travel has also had a 'green' effect - eliminating thousands of pounds of carbon dioxide emissions annually.*
Given Constellation Energy's success with video conferencing, the technology was a natural choice when the company's nuclear power division needed an efficient means of training at its three facilities; Calvert Cliffs in Lusby, Maryland, and Nine Mile Point and Ginna in Lake Ontario, New York. Constellation Energy selected industry expert IVCi, with whom it has partnered on numerous video conferencing and audio visual installations, to help design and install training rooms that would facilitate face-to-face training sessions across the nuclear division's locations.

With the introduction of the first and only H.264 High Profile implementation for real-time video, Polycom continues the tradition of bringing leading-edge video technology to the visual communication market. While H.264 is a well-established and widely implemented standard for video compression, the much simpler and less efficient Baseline Profile is used for visual communication applications today.
