EXECUTIVE Q & A:
Why Does the Video Conferencing Market Remain Strong in This Challenging Economic Environment?
By Nina Parker
Why does the video conferencing products and services market remain strong, given the current state of the economy?.
That was the question posed to the IVCi executive team, and executives at video conferencing equipment manufacturers Polycom and TANDBERG. The following are the responses from these business leaders.
We are interested in your feedback — please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to provide your answer to this question, or to let us know how video conferencing is playing a role in your company's reaction to the current market conditions. We will publish some of the responses in our next issue of Power Meetings Update.
"What we've seen historically is that video conferencing technology is embraced in times of economic downturn. Organizations are looking to limit expenses, and as a result many are cutting travel budgets. However, meetings still need to take place - so enterprises turn to video as an alternative to expensive flights, hotel rooms, and meals out. We are now seeing a growing awareness of the benefits of video. In fact, video conferencing is becoming such a popular alternative to travel that even executives without technical knowledge are coming to us for a managed video conferencing solution. I believe we will see continued interest in the video conferencing marketspace."

By Nina Parker
Transurban Group is an international toll road developer and manager with interests in Australia and the U.S. The company uses video conferencing to hold board, executive, and project management meetings across corporate locations, including Virginia, Washington, DC, New York City, and Sidney, Australia.
The video conferencing system in Transurban's New York City location needed to be updated.

IVCi was chosen to provide the customized solution.
Economic Stimulus Package Allows Bonus Depreciation for Projects Completed in 2008
The Economic Stimulus Act signed by President Bush on February 13, 2008 helps businesses in two ways. It gives companies a 50% bonus deduction on shorter life property placed in service in 2008. And it increases — to $250,000 from $128,000 in 2008 — the section 179 limit on expenses that small businesses can deduct from annual income, with a total cap of $800,000.
